                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out NIATOLI ISLAND 
to see what's new.  Like, THE SEWING CIRCLE had to be so embarrassed when they got 
kicked off #1 spot by SEA DOGS!  Way to go SEA DOGS!  What was the name of that team 
who got 3-0-0 this turn for a total 23-27-2 you ask?  (Sure)  DIVINE HERITAGE's their 
name, and fighting's their game!  MVP award for SCUTTLEBUTT?  SEA DOGS' proud of him 
after beating LAZY LOGS and getting 25 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  LAZY 
LOGS got smashed by SCUTTLEBUTT, and lost 20 points!  And I was just getting used to 
the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome BITCHIN' BEAST.  Aren't DIVINE 
HERITAGE proud.  (Oh, my.) Who was the wiseguy that said NIATOLI ISLAND's Duelmaster 
was paying for drinks at The Don't Drop Inn?  Don't look at me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Hey you guys, don't you think your 
families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     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

And how did anybody manage to Capture that Orc?  He's tough. -- Windmill Willy
