                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out ZENSU to see 
what's new.  MVP award for THE MAD CARROT?  GARDEN OF HORRORS' proud of him after 
beating JENIPHER and getting 17 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  JENIPHER 
got smashed by THE MAD CARROT, and lost 10 points!  What a putz!  LEADFOOT fights so 
hard to be Duelmaster, then quits fighting and loses the title.  No one said he was a 
genius...  Who was the wiseguy that said ZENSU's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at 
The Victory Tavern?  Don't look at me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All ZENSU ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear 
from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     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

Triangle Man -- Ah, I knew right away that I didn't have a chance against you.  It's
your id number:  4000.  What could be stronger luck than that?  Well, okay, 4444
might be stronger luck, but then again, in arena 40...nah, you've got the winning
number.  And who am I to go against another man's luck?  People think that just
because I'm big, I have to be dumb, too.  As if! -- Arnie El Shew

Wow, have you ever seen somebody as DENSE as the Commission guy that guesses your
race?  I'm five-foot-seven, and he calls me a Shew!  Better than being called a
shrew, I suppose, and I AM big-boned for my size, but still.  I call that silly.
Especially when I'm only one quarter Shewish.  It was my mother's mother, and my
grandfather, well, you know how it is.  My great-grandad had this crossbow.... --
Jenipher

Well, naturally I won.  You know how it is with orcs, they just can't RESIST a

blonde.  That's how you capture them, with blondes to be lures.  I've done that work
when I was really down on my luck, but I don't have to do it now, and I am sooo glad.
Now people BRING me captured orcs.  (sigh)  Like I wanted one.... -- Blonde Grenade

Absolute Zero -- My, talk about cold hands!  You really need to get warmed up before
you come out on the sands, my friend.  Then you wouldn't get those horrid cramps, and
you might win.  Not against me, I don't want you to win against me, but I just
thought I'd give you the hint.  If we gladiators don't help ourselves and each other,
who will? -- Dark Lenora
P.S.  I agree with Jen on the "everybody can be Shewish" thing.  I, too, am five-
foot-seven and classed as a Shew!  Ridiculous!  Not that I have anything against
Shews, but it's the principle of the thing.
P.P.S.  And what's more, look at Ollie Post!  He's six-foot-six, why didn't they
decide HE was a Shew?  What I'd like to know is who sets the standards or the
guidelines or whatever they're using?

White Noixe -- That was actually kinda soothing. -- O. Poste

17 July 2004
I am currently trying to put together a favorites chart for AD warriors.  I
desperately need help with this.  What I need are style, favorite rhythm (ex.:
hi/low), favorite weapons, and tactics.  What would be great is if you could send me
a copy of the invite with the warrior's name, id#, and arena blacked out.  This way,
I can verify that this is an actual warrior.  Minis will work, too!

For those interested, I have both a challenge style vs. style and a match-up style
vs. style chart.  There's about 250 fights calculated in these charts, and I'll be
happy to send a copy to anyone who asks.  You can contact me (if you're a free world
player) at: Rick Stringer, Merit/East, SCI, P.O. Box 500, Georgetown, DE 19947-0500.
If you're in prison, just send a diplo to:  Baphomet, Mgr. Knights Templar (568), DM
#47--North Fork.  (I also have a lot of other charts and info for anyone who wants
it.)  Thanks!

30 July 2004
The total number of fights calculated was reported as 250 fights.  This is a
misprint.  It should have read "over 2,500 fights." -- Baphomet
