                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  CLIFFHOME needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  I talked to SEA 
DOGS' manager before the fights.  He said, "We're gonna do good."  And look at this:  
3-2-0!  Psychic, or what!  MVP award for HARANDUR?  JINDA-BAN's proud of him after 
beating SIR LICKSALOT and getting 29 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  SIR 
LICKSALOT's match with HARANDUR cost him a loss of 20 points!  And I was just getting 
used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome HARANDUR.  Aren't 
JINDA-BAN proud.  (Oh, my.) Who was the wiseguy that said CLIFFHOME's Duelmaster was 
paying for drinks at The Choking Ogre?  Don't look at me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed 
up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     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.  CLIFFHOME is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby 
Tonte

Rumaki -- Well...I dunno.  There isn't anything to say about that fight, not really.
I came, you conquered, sort of deal. -- Harandur
P.S.  I don't really care for forceful women.
P.P.S.  Or women who get greedy over the skills.
P.P.P.S.  But congratulations on having the title, I guess.  If you want it.

I bit the Venomous Concubine, sucked a little blood--hey, it's what I do, you know?
Cut me some slack there!--and then I suddenly found myself getting dizzy.
Extremities numb.  Very strange taste in my mouth.  All the danger signs that my mama
told me about:  You have just bitten someone with Contaminated Blood!  She was very
firm about what you DO if that happens, which is, first, you throw up.  This tends to
bring the fight to a stop.  And the maintenance crew complains.  But what could I do?
My mama was VERY firm about that. -- Mosquito

Oh, gods, the Convicted Assassin was out to GET me!  Someone must have paid him to
fight harder than usual.  I'm sure that was it. -- Ballou Ys

I don't understand why this "Ambitious Guard"--he did tell me his name, along with
that of his insurance agent, but I forgot--was determined to JUMP out in front of me
like that.  He could have been killed!  What is he ambitious to BE, anyway, street
pizza? -- Articulate Lori

Jade -- You'd be a pretty woman, if you weren't green and made of stone. -- Van
Chevie

Ivory -- But I just wanted a little, to try some scrimshaw! -- your favorite
Embezzling (a bum rap, I promise you) Scribe

Pearl -- You didn't have to call me a swine. -- (name withheld by request), formerly
of Mordant

Articulate Lori -- My insurance agent says I have to avoid you in the future, or pay
my own Infirmary bills.  It will be easier if YOU avoid ME, you know. -- Keallaninin,
Ambitious Guard

Ballou Ys -- You will not escape me!  Sooner or later, I will find my opening. --
(name withheld by request), registered assassin

Mosquito -- Next time you may think again when you're about to bite someone. --
Venomous Concubine
