                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out NIATOLI ISLAND 
to see what's new.  Too bad, TOOL SHED, but BAD BREAD was just too good to be 
stopped.  MVP award for KARINIRINA?  THE SEWING CIRCLE's proud of her after beating 
VETERAN MERCENARY and getting 18 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  BOX CUTTA 
got smashed by PIEHOLDEN SWEET, and lost 10 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster 
is being unfair?  I think HULL SCRUBBER should let MULCHER 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.   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  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'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Hull Scrubber -- Well, I'm scrubbed again.  Squeaky clean. -- Tavelshan Kethal
P.S.  It's embarrassing to be so clean.

Mulcher -- What am I, some plant to be protected against frost? -- Kurelleu Zien

Gods, can you BELIEVE the Khalhums Dwarf did that to me?  Here I thought he was
paralyzed with island-ophobia! -- Karinirina

Elt -- I, um, didn't realize that was a name the steward said.  I thought he was
going to keep on talking, so I just... didn't get ready. -- Hassimor Shomur

And our only win today is my victory over the Userous Merchant.  I'll take it. --
