                                      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.  Talk about yer big 
time losers!  RUMPLE got smashed by THE KILL RIFF, and lost 10 points!  Don't you 
think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think LOIAL should let M. CHARDINEE be 
Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  Who was the wiseguy that said 
LYRATILAN's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Mourngrym Inn and Tavern?  Don't 
look at me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  SAY MY NAME was the most avoided 
team.  Is a 145-102-9 record really that scary?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are 
ARCANE BOOKSHELF?  SAY MY NAME, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get 
them to accept an invitation!  People were asking me did THE STAND REALLY challenge 
SIMON?  (all right, maybe they didn't, but it sounded good!) It wasn't a spectacular 
fight, or anything, but SIMON wants me to write about it since he lost to THE STAND.  
Satisfied?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Hey you guys, don't you think your 
families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  LYRATILAN is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Jorja -- Thank you, I have enjoyed our exchanges too, more than I expected.  And as
for the team, well, I was blaming the design for their inability to win, then took an
in depth look and saw possibilities.  I just need to do a better job at strategy,
etc.  Giving it a try because I have a couple of graduates from 25 and am kind of
partial to it. -- Padre

One-four, and it's BETTER than last time?  Of course, we had a death.  We thought of
saying, "Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy," and then we met his replacement.
Gods, what have we done to deserve this? -- Arizona Bates for the rest of the team
