                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in XOCHITHLAN!  I still haven't told Mom I'm 
writing Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for KOIVU?  
THE ROUGHRIDERS' proud of it after beating LONG-RANGE ARCHERS and getting 15 points.  
Talk about yer major upsets!  MASSEY's match with COLLABORATOR cost him a loss of 15 
points!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  WOXTON stopped RIRORNI OFFICER dead 
in his tracks!  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?  Can THE MIDDLE WAY's ULRIK VENN be 
more popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that really the same?  
MORGANA BLACK must not be a good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  She 
challenged WOVERN YANSY.  9 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I 
thought MORGANA BLACK showed great skill and promise when she won victory over WOVERN 
YANSY.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  Its 
been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

The Mun -- Yep, second go-around.  Hopefully, better this time.  Congratulations to
Woxton. -- Lobo, mgr SWTwo

Jorja -- Thanks for appreciating the spotlight.  Also, stop beating up my fighters.
-- Lobo, my SWTwo

Horvanth Irnde -- I was trying this thing where I use various body part to block
attacks... it didn't go quite as planned. -- Bash Artadi
P.S.  My name is actually Basti Artadi.  The Commission mispelled it and I got stuck
being called "Bash."  I've bladed weapons, for crying out loud!

Wovern Yansy -- That scimitar cut through plate armor as if it was silk!  Worse, I'm
two fights in and I've yet to get a swing in. -- Jalabhovs Xho

Lobo -- If you have internet access, there are several sites that have information
(so I've been told, I don't do internet if I can avoid it).  Start at reality dot com
and keeping poking.  If you don't have internet, do you have the CIC information
packet?  Though prepared by another manager (the Consortium), it is available from
the RSI office on request.  Have you done your ten turns in Noblish Island arena (dm
93)?  Lots of information there for new players. -- Jorja

Our congratulations to Woxton. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

Hot ham... and I didn't bring the cherry sauce.  My mistake. -- Bettina Chim

Hokowhitu -- Oh.  I thought we were doing bird calls. -- Ulrik Venn

Hobson -- You had to ruin it, didn't you?  Now our records don't match! -- Salome
Torene

Bash Artadi -- My advice to you is to drop the shield.  It isn't like you were using
it for anything, and it's an added weight. -- Horvanth Irnde

Jalabhaus Xho -- Are you CRAZY?  Reduce your armor!  You didn't "continue fight," you
didn't fight all.  Couldn't move, I guess. -- Wovern Yansy

ALL -- MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL IN ALASTARI!!!
May your year end in peace and the new year hold great things for you and your
families. -- Gentleben (Sunset-21, Morya-28, Arvat-32 and Talahya-100)
