                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  LYRATILAN needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for MASON 
DIXON?  FUNKY FOLK's proud of him after beating POLITE BEGGAR and getting 15 points.  
Talk about yer big time losers!  HARMONY got smashed by KUNG-FU MASTER, and lost 11 
points!  And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, 
welcome SYMPATHY.  Aren't MADTOWN proud.  (Oh, my.) Who was the wiseguy that said 
LYRATILAN's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Piper's Rest?  Don't look at me!  
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  GREAT UNKNOWN was LYRATILAN's most avoided team.  Is there some 
award for that?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are ERRATA?  GREAT UNKNOWN, an easy 
team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  Like, is X. 
ROLPH TUPP popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of LYRATILAN!  He's 
got a 10-12-0, is that good?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Hey!  Quit laughing!  Just because VINCE had 13-15-0 was no reason for 
ERRATA to send him to the Dark Arena!  Stop it!  It was kind of sad, seeing old 
DOBERUM HANNIS stumbling around the arena, before HIPPOLYTA finished him off.  Oh 
well!  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, that's 
what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Coral Eden -- My, this arena is just filling up with good-looking women.  I don't
know how you do it!  After a day on the practice field, I feel like nothing on earth
and probably look worse. -- Doberum Hannis
P.S.  You're too tall for me, and besides, I have another woman in the front and
center of my attention at the moment.  No point in making problems for everyone, eh?
But I could introduce you to some pleasant guys who wouldn't take liberties.

Vince -- You hurt?  Damn, I must be doing something wrong.  You shouldn't have had
the energy left to go shouting around the Infirmary. -- X. Rolph Tupp

Fluid -- Somehow, I expected more grace from you.  It must be your height that's the
problem.  Maybe you should get a little off the top? -- Trellin Xiss

Anne -- My momma always said, "Feder, be nice to the little girls, and they'll be
nice back."  And I do try.  So why are you calling me worthless and beating up on me?
-- Feder Jornis

Wanderlei Rua -- You see?  You surrendered and lived.  Remember this.  It's a key
piece of tactics. -- Foirene Ilmer
P.S.  Especially for a short guy who is going to find LOTS of people taking
advantage.
