                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in MURSKA!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for BRENDAL?  CHILDREN 
OF LLYR's proud of him after beating PROMO and getting 24 points.  Talk about yer 
major upsets!  PROMO's match with BRENDAL cost him a loss of 15 points!  What a putz! 
BILBO BAGGINNI fights so hard to be Duelmaster, then quits fighting and loses the 
title.  No one said he was a genius...  Who was the wiseguy that said MURSKA's 
Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Victory Tavern?  Don't look at me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All MURSKA ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  MURSKA is like such a dump, and you guys smell 
too much!  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Gimlinguini -- Well, I *told* you that sauce was crucial, but you insisted on rushing
out onto the sands without even *olive oil*.  Honestly, if you don't listen to good
advice, what's the point? -- Brendal

Slowgo -- I just can't gear down to your speed.  Damn. -- Evindal

Civil -- Not today. -- Harec O'Kai

It figures that the Persistent Beggar would drag the fight out to three minutes.

Greetings All -- This is Vincent Michaels, "the Rake", mgr. of the Stormbringers out
of DM 33 Niatoli Island, back after a relatively long layoff.  I come back to my
arena to find only two other teams there.  Terrible!  I'm calling on all you managers
out there who have inactive teams in Niatoli to put them back in the game.  Also,
anyone else who wants to come check out our little island are welcome.  Good food and
a lot of good gambling, and you will have a chance to smack around Gen. GirlPants and
his band of Ravaged Queens.  Great fun.  Come one, come all!
