                                      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.  Too bad, FIRE DECK, 
but SOUL WARRIORS was just too good to be stopped.  MVP award for ASH?  SOUL 
WARRIORS' proud of him after beating SOLDILLIA VRO and getting 26 points.  Talk about 
yer big time losers!  SOLDILLIA VRO got smashed by ASH, and lost 31 points!  Like 
DARK ARENA's BANDIT PRINCE is sweating since he got Dark Arena Challenged by 
Duelmaster JELLY BELLY!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think 
JELLY BELLY should let BANDIT PRINCE 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.   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  SHEWISH CANDY was CLIFFHOME's most 
avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are BASH 
BROS CHILDREN?  SHEWISH CANDY, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them 
to accept an invitation!  Can JINDA-BAN's SOLDILLIA VRO be more popular than me?  She 
was challenged the most, but is that really the same?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All CLIFFHOME ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  Pinch me, I must be dreaming!!!  JELLY BELLY returns from 
the Dark Arena, maybe a "little upset" at his SHEWISH CANDY teammates...  BLAZIKEN 
bloodfeuded (is that a word?) SHOTS for revenge over some guy's bad fortune.  Was it 
really worth it?  CLEMENTINE really fought hard against STRINGS.  That'll teach ONE 
TOO MANY not to go and kill any of SOUL WARRIORS' guys again, huh!  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.  Its been 
really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

RIP Torkoal -- 13-5(1)-11-14(1)-17-9-17 lunger.  Had 4 ratings, master in intiative
was the best.  Shots--you're a bad bad man.  You know who's badder?  If you're still
alive, you'll know. -- Blaziken

There are some truly Dangerous Criminals here in Cliffhome!  Michael Jackson would be
so proud.  Oh wait... that was that quarterstaff shot to my head talking. -- Magcargo
P.S.  Shots--if you aren't dead, you should be.

Jelly Belly/OAB -- Congrats. -- Assur

Soldillia Vro -- Ouch, that one hurts.  But such is life.  Just wish it had happened
20 turns ago... -- Assur

RIP Sick Days: 9-10-18-15-10-7-15 L, +4 att, +3 def, +4 ini, and +3-4 rip.  Sweet
bonuses on a terrible Lunger.

Voronsal Maur -- Thanks for being a great teacher and a good sport. -- Defiance

Our congratulations to Jelly Belly, who will soon be rotting teeth far and wide on
the Isle. -- Jorja and Jinda-Ban

Two-three-one, and my apologies to Sick Days.  I had no idea the antibiotic was that
strong! -- Soldillia Vro
P.S.  I see we're top team on the move, want to know why?  We're trying to get away
from our new teammate, the well-named Junker.
