                                      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.  MVP award for 
LOGOS?  HILLTOP GURUS' proud of him after beating LUM BUSBY and getting 15 points.  
Talk about yer big time losers!  LUM BUSBY got smashed by LOGOS, and lost 10 points!  
Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think GURU GNU should let BENT 
FENDER be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  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?  Like, is TORCHLIGHT KID popular, or what?  He was 
challenged the most in all of CLIFFHOME!  He's got a 12-1-2, is that good?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All CLIFFHOME 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.  CLIFFHOME is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby 
Tonte

Scarlet Monk -- Huh, I guess that gives you an edge, doesn't it?  Because blood on a
scarlet robe doesn't even SHOW, much less stain. -- Jitney Johnny

Guru Gnu -- You're just SOOO impressive!  Say something profound. -- Redd Corvait

Torchlight Kid -- The sooner the better, kid. -- Bent Fender, feeling like a pretzel

Utano -- Good thing I talked 'em into using smooth river sand instead of that sharp-
edged stuff. -- Kartikaya

Only one standby!  I figure that means things are looking up. -- Lum Busby

Guru Gnu -- Uh, I'm not sure I can handle all those big words.  I like things simple.
-- Bent Fender

Jitney -- Nah, that's my brother that Zigs. -- Zag

Redd -- Grats on winning knocking me off my pedestal.  The fight went pretty much as
I expected.  Considering how you had runnas number before he left. -- TK
P.S.  Thanks for the chocolates and sammich.

Guru -- Bent gets free bodywork over at my shop.  It's the least I can do considering
how much training he's given the UAKers along the way. -- TK

These standins are going to get tired of all the beatings they are taking and pay one
of us back here soon.

Gurus -- Welcome back.  With there being so few gladiators around makes for some good
time off around here.  Pretty relaxing and no line for the healers. -- otis
