                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for LAPUR.  Too bad, CLAN CROW, but CARDOW 
HUNTERS was just too good to be stopped.  Uncool, CLAN CROW.  I mean 0-3-0 is bad.  
Will they will be allowed to fight?  I say use 'em for training practice!  The guys 
at CLUBS 'N CLONES like really pulled together to get a 4-1-0 this turn, moving up by 
5.  MVP award for INCONEL INDENTER?  METAL MINCERS' proud of him after beating QUARK 
and getting 19 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  QUARK's match with INCONEL 
INDENTER cost him a loss of 14 points!  Oh, wow, like the Duelmaster must be the most 
popular guy in all LAPUR.  He got the most challenges.  (But what about proposals?) 
Like SERPENTS HOLD's CARNAGE is sweating since it got challenged by Duelmaster 
ORATHAI!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  ORATHAI stopped CARNAGE dead in 
its tracks!  I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  
They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  SERPENTS HOLD 
was LAPUR's most avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  Is there some deep 
dark secret why MID EARTH's been avoiding SERPENTS HOLD so much?  Or is it just that 
they're too scared?  People were asking me did LOCUTUS OF BORG REALLY challenge 
THUNDERBOLD?  (all right, maybe they didn't, but it sounded good!) It wasn't a 
spectacular fight, or anything, but THUNDERBOLD wants me to write about it since he 
defeated LOCUTUS OF BORG.  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.  How cruel!  METAL MINCERS heartlessly sent 
its to STAINLESS SHAKER certain fate in the Dark Arena.  Is a 10-9-0 bad or 
something?  What a bummer deal for ZERRO!  He just barely was getting his "fighter 
feet" but got kill by NILOS of WAR PARTY!  Those're the breaks, I guess.  NILOS 
really fought hard against ZERRO.  That'll teach MID EARTH not to go and kill any of 
WAR PARTY's guys again, huh!  NILOS bloodfeuded (is that a word?) ZERRO for revenge 
over some guy's bad fortune.  Was it really worth it?  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 gotta leave.  LAPUR is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

It'n be all yer fault, Ora, ye wench! -- Oremaster

Now, Oremaster, you ugly lout, you know you are the cause of this issue.  Tsk. Tsk.
-- Ora

Anyway, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all. -- Oremaster, Ora, and The Metal
Mincers

All -- I'll be out of your hair as soon as I can get called to the thorne. -- Orathai

Oremaster -- While I certainly understand your desire to enter your warrior in the
face-to-face tourney, honor requires that Xiana's death be avenged.  If Beryllium
Buffer will not fight, then War Party will exact its vengeance on another.  Stay
deadly, my friend. -- Obregon

Lapur -- Death strikes at War Party from all directions... the tribe is dwindling...
lost members have been found... but we will fight as long as we are able. -- Kulmar

Trail of Tears -- You may not believe this, but I was not aiming for her head.  I
also found it amazing I lasted that long.  I await your pleasure. -- Lucilius

Kicker Murphy -- I was expecting you to kick me.  Hope you enjoy the learns.  Pretty
good challenge. -- Anicius

Locutus -- Another decent challenge.  I do hate to lose this way. -- Rutilius

Ms Kelley -- Ya saved me the bother of sending old Spicillus to the Dark Arena. --
Spartacus

So those samurai lads come sneaking in like ninjas ta take the throne.  Pretty sneaky
for samurai!  Let's see if they sneak off like ninja too! -- Owsly
P.S.  Do samurai drink?  Mayhap we clansmen can bribe them at the Warty Toad.

Me be thinkin the name springroll be no good for ye Trail O' Tears as it be seemin ta
me fellas with that name seem ta die a lot.  Me just sayin! -- Owsly

Q we had a damn good fight laddie!  Ye came oot on top this time but me dannae be
disappointed at all!  Although that "Visciously Subdued" part be a wee bit
melodromatic dannae ya think? -- Tapper

Street Walkers -- We at Clan Crow like the way ye think! -- Owsly

Quark -- I don't know that I like a quarky opponent.  You're too unpredictable.  Not
that it's going to be a problem for me in the future. -- Ghost of Butterfly

Viedras -- I do like it when this happens:  some young hotshot challenges me and then
loses, quickly.  It makes me feel incredibly good, and that isn't something I feel
often enough to be jaded about it. -- Thunderbold
P.S.  How the heck did I reach this ridiculous ranking, though?

Scotty -- I suppose I should be glad you didn't attack with bagpipes, shouldn't I?
That wouldn't have been my kind of song at all. -- Maplesong

Mary Wanna -- I second that thanks!  Wow, you came on tough there today, girl. --
Stormrider

The Cult Member had fans.  That was a surprise. -- Hardwood
P.S.  He's such a creep.

Butterfly -- I salute your honor and skill on the sands.  Rest in Peace. -- Lhisson

Pinky -- I owe you a drink, my dear. -- Lhisson

Cairraig Amadan -- Arggghh, ten more seconds and victory was mine! -- Menhoir

Quark -- Why does it seem like everyone after my head lately? -- Jehlch

Maplesong -- I an impressed, well fought. -- Priore

War Party -- My condolences on Halla and Kylano, they both fought with honor and did
not deserve such a fate. -- Zerro

Orathai -- Why, you worthless piece of tourney dung!  I curse you and hope you meet
Arhingol after the next tourney! -- Lhisson

Trinket -- You are becoming a pain in the arse. -- Menhoir

Miley Virus -- I sure how I didn't catch anything. -- Jehlch

Tarantos -- You do realize you can atack with your weapon? -- Priore

Readers of Lapur -- I've been sick, and the story has suffered for it.  What would
you prefer, that I synopsize to remind us where we were and then go on, or just drop
the whole storyline as being doomed? -- the Scribe
