                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out NIATOLI ISLAND 
to see what's new.  MVP award for CAROLINA LILY?  THE SEWING CIRCLE's proud of her 
after beating PERSISTENT BEGGAR and getting 10 points.  Talk about yer big time 
losers!  DIRTY HOWEL got smashed by RANGER, and lost 6 points!  This Duelmaster is 
like something else!  THE MONK stopped KORIENELLEN dead in hers tracks!  Is the 
Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?   
     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 know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  Its 
been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

The Monk -- Ah, like there's anyone ELSE to fight?  Good one, though. -- Korienellen
P.S.  What else could I say without whining?

Monolyth -- Wow, you're a big one!  Have you always been a golem? -- Rintirisse

Ranger -- Ah, you lefties are tough as well as sinister!  Although going all to
pieces like that is probably appropriate for someone like me who's named after a
quilt pattern.  Probably a bad omen. -- Beartrack

This Persistent Beggar is rather wimpish, isn't he? -- Dirty Howel
P.S.  Don't ask me what *I* am named after, I have no idea.  I bathe regularly, too.

Mordant Deserter?  Why is this bad? -- Carolina Lily

Our congratulations to The Monk. -- Jorja and the Sewing Circle
