                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out NIATOLI ISLAND 
to see what's new.  One team deserves special mention 'cause they moved up 0 after 
going 4-0-0.  Keep it up, STEEL PATH 2!  MVP award for INFESTIX?  ELITE SOLDIERS' 
proud of him after beating MAVERICK HAMMER and getting 18 points.  Talk about yer 
major upsets!  SQUASH's match with ALDT cost him a loss of 4 points!  Don't you think 
the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think DEMONICHELLION should let SUCCOTASH be 
Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  I hear the top team insists all 
their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  CHAOTICDISORDER was the most avoided team.  Is a 52-26-4 record 
really that scary?  Is there some deep dark secret why VEGGIES' been avoiding 
CHAOTICDISORDER so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Like, is INFESTIX 
popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of NIATOLI ISLAND!  He's got a 
4-0-0, is that good?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All NIATOLI ISLAND ever talks about is 
fighting!  Me, I'm more laid back.  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.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Niytole Neighbors -- Congratulations to everyone who activated stables for this 
historic 500th cycle in Niytyole Island and to those who have kept the dueling 
candles aflame here! -- Hammer

Niytyole Neighbors -- Congratulations to everyone who has kept the dueling flames 
alive on our beloved island to help bring us to this historic 500th cycle of 
competition! -- Hammer

Old personals (that should have been here last time if we hadn't been so very busy 
getting ready to move.  Now, of course, we're very busy getting ready to settle down 
in a new place, but it's a little less frantic. -- the Sewing Circle):

Demonichellion -- I'm just not up to your weight, or whatever is the appropriate 
term. -- Tatharli

Ooooh, the Dangerous Criminal is a golem!  That might mean he's a demon!  I've heard 
that this has turned out to be the case with some OTHER arenas's standbys, or maybe 
it was with Dark Arena warriors, but that's almost the same thing. -- Irinkesta

Big Casino Hammer -- Wow, I'm glad I didn't bet on myself to win that one. -- Tyler

Darn.  Irinkesta just got the Dangerous Criminal stirred up, and then *I* had to 
fight him.  He probably IS a demon, and I don't DO demons. -- Thimbell
P.S.  I'm just a red-headed step child.

Current personals (two turns all in one, aren't you thrilled?):

Diabolicfiend -- (groaning)  That was extremely chaotic and disordered. -- Tatharli

Deus -- Cool, a new team!  Well, first time one of us has fought you, I think.  I 
don't mind the loss if you're going to stay around after the tourney. -- Irinkesta
P.S.  Not that it would do me much good to mind the loss regardless.

Infestix -- Aren't you a little TALL for a dwarf?  Or are you only half dwarven, much 
as I'm half Shewish, and the Commission, bless its little heart, can't figure that 
out? -- Thimbell

Squash -- Oh, no!  You're an Aruaki veggie?  One of those (shudder) demonic Thing 
veggies that have appeared in Tobir?  It almost makes me glad I'm dead and done with.  
I wouldn't want to deal with demonic veggies. -- Ghost of Tyler
P.S.  But we could've spared Thimbell better.  He couldn't sew a straight seam to 
save his life.

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

29 Jun 2005
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.
