                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for CLIFFHOME.  MVP award for NUTCRACKER?  ALL 
FINESSE's proud of her after beating TEDIOUS TED and getting 23 points.  Talk about 
yer big time losers!  TEDIOUS TED got smashed by NUTCRACKER, and lost 15 points!  
Like DARK ARENA's BLACK ORC is sweating since he got Dark Arena Challenged by 
Duelmaster FIDDLESTICKS!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think 
FIDDLESTICKS should let BLACK ORC 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.   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  EAGLES CLAW was CLIFFHOME's most avoided team.  Is there some award 
for that?  I don't know what TACTICAL NUKES' been doing.  They certainly haven't been 
accepting many fights from EAGLES CLAW, that's fer sher.  Can JINDA-BAN's KORRIBIE be 
more popular than me?  She was challenged the most, but is that really the same?  For 
sure, I was holding my breath when I found out DEATHSTRIKE challenged KORRIBIE.  
After all, haven't TACTICAL NUKES and JINDA-BAN had a long standing duel in 
CLIFFHOME?  It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but KORRIBIE wants me to 
write about it since she was beat by DEATHSTRIKE.  Satisfied?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Pinch me, I must be dreaming!!!  
FIDDLESTICKS returns from the Dark Arena, maybe a "little upset" at his ALL FINESSE 
teammates...  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, 
that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  I had a fun 
time, see you later-- Debby Tonte
