                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  CALEAM needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for CAP'N 
CRUNCH?  STEEL CRUSADE's proud of him after beating LORIS KEY and getting 19 points.  
Talk about yer big time losers!  SPECKLED GECKO got smashed by MOLDRAUN, and lost 13 
points!  The Duelmaster isn't going to stop just cause he's Number One!  CLEMMIE 
knows this.  She was challenged by the Duelmaster.  Was that a tear I saw in 
CLEMMIE's eye, as she took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't ARTHUR BEYER fit to be 
tied!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  MEDAL OF HONOR VI was the most avoided team.  Is a 30-16-6 record 
really that scary?  I don't know what STEEL CRUSADE's been doing.  They certainly 
haven't been accepting many fights from MEDAL OF HONOR VI, that's fer sher.  Like, is 
CLEMMIE popular, or what?  She was challenged the most in all of CALEAM!  She's got a 
23-22-1, is that good?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys 
can do?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  I had a fun 
time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Arthur Beyer -- (languid wave)  I'm afraid I don't have time for this today.  We're
putting on a big bash at the next full moon, harvest festival with major feast, that
sort of thing.  Takes all our energy, you know?  You can come, if you promise not to
be such a sobersides as usual.  Ah, we've probably got some unsobering stuff on the
plan, if needed.  Ask. -- Pike

Speckled Gecko -- Thanks, the political points apparently put me over the top, and

NOW, finally, I can go to Advanced Cooking School.  The recipes, the techniques!  The
possibilities are IMMENSE. -- Clemmie
P.S.  And I get to wear a white muffin-hat.  I've always wanted to wear one of those.

Well, the Veteran Mercenary, dear Jinsi H'ru, will be at the harvest feast.  I've
always liked him, and I'm looking forward to the non-adversarial association. --
Loris Key

Soldier 2 -- Bah, golems.  What's the point? -- Moldraun

Komodo Dragon -- I still think you'd make a great pit-roast.  With pineapples and
sweet potatoes.  Sure you don't want to try it? -- Corot Toro

Moderate/very low?  I'm insulted! -- Clemmie
