                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  JHANS needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Like, BABES had to be 
so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by MIDDLE WAY 17!  Way to go MIDDLE 
WAY 17!  MVP award for SHERRY?  BABES' proud of her after beating DENCIE HILLIS and 
getting 13 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  ABALOND EGRAN got smashed by 
AMBITIOUS GUARD, and lost 9 points!  Was that a tear I saw in CHAENY GROVE's eye, as 
she took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't MARY fit to be tied!  Is the Duelmaster 
really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  MIDDLE WAY 17 was JHANS' most avoided team.  Is there 
some award for that?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are BABES?  MIDDLE WAY 17, an 
easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  What a bummer!  DENCIE HILLIS got wasted by SHERRY!  But with a 8-7-0, I 
guess MIDDLE WAY 17 aren't too bummed.  It was so gross when SHERRY of BABES killed 
DENCIE HILLIS.  They should start making warriors use safer weapons, or more shields, 
or something...  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 gotta leave.  JHANS is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Mary -- Ah, you're still prepared to cover the Duelmastership.  Good.  I don't have
time for that.  I've got a chance to lay hands on a ticket to Nearly Woodstock, I
believe it's been held over near Sibikhas somewhere, and NOTHING can stand in the way
of that.  This is REALLY IMPORTANT to me, so don't keep me long here today. -- Chaeny
Grove

The Userous Merchant?  What does HE know?  He's Rirorni, and you know what barbarians
they are.  I asked him what he thought of Storm at Sea versus Mariner's Compass and
all he could say was that it was good not to get lost, but he'd leave the sea for the
Sea Dogs.  Stupid man!  I'd like to send him a Drunkard's Path, but I don't suppose
he'd get the message. -- Ellirin Imbray

Lisa -- Listen, Babe, I've got quite a nice little Bonsur Red here, got it from a
colleague on a team in Bonsur, and I would be delighted to share it with you.  They
tell me it goes well with roast pig, and I could probably even turn up some roast
pig, if you wanted to make a night of it with me. -- Abalond Egran

Apparently nobody has ever succeeded in explaining to the Rirorni Spy the difference
between "covering your nakedness" and "dressing with flair and style."  Nothing but
black and dark brown, in the most utilitarian designs.  Hopeless. -- Dencie Hillis
P.S.  I didn't laugh, either, whatever some may say.  That was horrified gasps.
Really.

The Ambitious Guard?  Well, I don't know about his guardly ambitions, but he was able
to give me a clue to finding a MOST splendid snuffbox to add to my collection, and
this was worth, more than worth, the loss to me.  It isn't every day you find a
snuffbox carved of genuine ivory and painted with a miniature of a beautiful blonde
on the half-shell.  Splendid work, splendid.  The painter might well be B'Tichello!
-- Carlin Granz
