                                      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 FREE CHEESE!!?  
HAPPY FUN TIME's proud of it after beating ODD? and getting 22 points.  Talk about 
yer big time losers!  ODD? got smashed by FREE CHEESE!!, and lost 15 points!  What a 
putz!  SMILE WAFFLE fights so hard to be Duelmaster, then quits fighting and loses 
the title.  No one said it 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!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  Can CHILDREN OF LLYR's KARMEK FOX be more popular than me?  He was 
challenged the most, but is that really the same?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All MURSKA ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  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 know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Golly!  Last turn an oh-fer, this turn a five-oh.  Must be some kind of balancing
deal. -- Jorja

some are not so much so. -- Madon ap Llew, traveling the road in front of him

Fratsfa Slaves, while easy, are no fun either.  Boring would be the word for them. --

I suppose a Convicted Thief should be regarded as an easy introduction, but I wanted
to test myself, and this was no test. -- Karmek Fox
