***** According to Mikey/Assur

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out MORYA to see 
what's new.  Uncool, VALHALLA.  I mean 0-1-0 is bad.  Will they will be allowed to 
fight?  I say use 'em for training practice!  The guys at NORTHERN BADLANDS like 
really pulled together to get a 2-2-0 this turn, moving up by 6.  Cut this out and 
put it in your scrapbooks, OTTO'S MECHANICS!  'Cause they got 3-0-0 and moved up to 
3rd!  MVP award for CAESAR?  THE WARLORDS II's proud of him after beating YIP AGAIN 
and getting 24 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  YIP AGAIN's match with CAESAR 
cost him a loss of 14 points!  The Duelmaster isn't going to stop just cause he's 
Number One!  DAISY HAMMER knows this.  She was challenged by the Duelmaster.  Don't 
you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think MYSTIC ZEALOT should let DAISY 
HAMMER be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  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.  NORTHERN BADLANDS was the most avoided team.  Is a 107-88-3 record 
really that scary?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are THE PENTARCHY?  NORTHERN 
BADLANDS, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an 
invitation!  Like, is DAISY HAMMER popular, or what?  She was challenged the most in 
all of MORYA!  She's got a 12-21-1, is that good?  SALMONELLA is being unfair.  He's 
challenged down 24 against LADY ELMA.  I don't know why they let this stuff go on.  
(I'd better shut up) I was sorry to see such an unfair "fight" in MORYA.  SALMONELLA 
got 2 points after beating LADY ELMA, 24 points below him.  People were asking me did 
FROGGER REALLY challenge WYATT BURP?  (all right, maybe they didn't, but it sounded 
good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but WYATT BURP wants me to write 
about it since he was subdued by FROGGER.  Satisfied?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All MORYA ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  What a bunch of heartless!  I couldn't believe how many people 
were snickering when GALAXIAN killed RED CACTUS HAMMER.  So she had a 7-14-0, that's 
no excuse!  D'ya think CORONAVIRUS is feeling guilty for killing THE WARLORDS II's 
HANNIBAL, a mere boy?  Naah, I doubt it.  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 know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Let me say it again...the manager of The Pentarchy is LE PENTARQUE!!  So, Fizban is
not.  It's a little annoying to be ignored like that. -- Le Pentarque

The Warlords -- Please don't mind the many challenges last turn; I just wanted to
secure the most wins first rank.  Sun Tzu surprised my poor Adilaode.  See you very soon on the sands, I guess.

Madness Maniacs -- Thanks for making this such an enjoyable 2+ years while I have
been overseas.  Please be patient while Max and I get the Prize Allocations sorted
out! -- Hammer/Your Madness Co-Host
P.S.  I noted in the Team Spotlight that the New Team Roll Ups have been Diploed to
the Gladiatorial Commission, so you should receive them next newsletter!
P.P.S.  Will contact RSI regarding transferring Gift Certs from my account and
verifying the Winners so Favorite Weapons etc will be claimed in the not too distant
future!

I am in the process of moving house, and spotlight writing for the next two months
will be very hit-and-miss. -- the Scribe

ATTENTION ALL YOU ALLIANCE-TYPE PEOPLE:
For the purposes of tourney newsletter alliance listings (when I am able to do them),
you may only be listed in ONE alliance.  In other words, you have to choose!  If you
are a part of Englebert's Alliance and Englebert's Alliance is "part" of Ruthrauf's
Alliance, I will list you EITHER as part of Englebert's Alliance OR as part of
Ruthrauf's Alliance, NOT both.  The default would be the top-level alliance,
Ruthrauf's, in this example.  If you'd rather be listed separately, let me know and I
will do so, but that will be the only listing you get. -- The Saint, keeper of ever-
more-complicated lists

The Company of Brothers (TCB) welcomes two new members to our alliance...Liam the
Goth and Buddy Lee.  We have no doubt that they will prove to be assets to our
alliance and the general dueling community. -- Baphomet, co-founder, T.C.B.
