                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  ZENSU needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Too bad, BEYOND THE 
PALE, but DI$C0MBU1@TED was just too good to be stopped.  Cut this out and put it in 
your scrapbooks, DI$C0MBU1@TED!  'Cause they got 5-0-1 and moved up to 1st!  MVP 
award for STUBBY?  DI$C0MBU1@TED's proud of him after beating PLAGUE and getting 25 
points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  DRAXLER got smashed by SLICE, and lost 14 
points!  The Duelmaster isn't going to stop just cause he's Number One!  DARRON LINZ 
knows this.  He was challenged by the Duelmaster.  This Duelmaster is like something 
else!  SANGUINE stopped DARRON LINZ dead in his tracks!  Who was the wiseguy that 
said ZENSU's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Victory Tavern?  Don't look at 
me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  BEYOND THE 
PALE was ZENSU's most avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  Hhmph!  What kind 
of warriors are BLOOD ANGELS?  BEYOND THE PALE, an easy team to beat if I ever saw 
one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  Like, is DARRON LINZ popular, or what?  
He was challenged the most in all of ZENSU!  He's got a 13-13-1, is that good?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All ZENSU ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  I was SO depressed when I heard PLAGUE got killed.  She was just 
a kid, and didn't get a fair chance in ZENSU, or anything!  Hey you guys, don't you 
think your families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for 
you.)  
     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.  ZENSU is like such a dump, and you guys smell 
too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Sanguine -- I believe you to be a bloody-handed fool, but what the heck.  You took
the title fair and square, and I salute you for that. -- O. Poste
P.S.  Besides, I'm outta here, so I don't even CARE, you know?  They tell me I might
be able to get some kind of Lord Protector gift, lands or a fancy sword or whatever,
but I think I'll pass on that.  It's bound to come with a lot of responsibility, and
for now, if I never see another responsibility, it's fine by ME.  Ta ta.

Venomous Concubine?  They say she's a hot date, but...I dunno, they also say that her
name isn't exactly a joke.  What if she bites me?  Does my insurance cover this?  If
I get laid up through being bitten in the line of pleasure, will Leeta insist that I
fight anyway?  I've got this awful feeling that she might. -- Darron Linz

Draxler -- It's the rage thing, isn't it?  Either you are genuine a short Shew and
you hate people for noticing, not to mention hating not belonging at home, or you are
NOT a Shew and you hate people for pretending you are and then sniggering.  I'd be
furious, too.  But, you know, it wasn't ME at fault here, so back off, okay?  I'm
friendly. -- Dellis Linz

Stubby -- What is it with you guys?  Do you have a death wish?  Does your manager
hate you?  Armor is your FRIEND.  Trust me on this. -- Tilarin

Hollett -- Are you sure your team is in the right arena?  I mean, I know you're stuck
here now, but if you were headed for Sunset, you, uh, didn't quite make it.  Not that
I mind, everyone tells me that it would be MUCH BETTER if there were a lot of teams
and gladiators here.  Something about not meeting the same guys again and again on
the sands.  Don't ask me, I just work here.  Bummer that the Commission won't let us
declare a draw so we could both preserve our undefeated records.  Oh, well.  Buy you
a drink? -- Selvun

Selvun and Ed. -- I am half Shewish, and I was stunted due to being enslaved in
Mordant during my childhood. -- Hollon Tegra, "Mordant Deserter"

     Did they keep you in a small box? -- Ed.

11 August 2006
All -- I support Vendetta Cartel's observation of The Dark Knights!  If war is
declared on V.C. by The Dark Knights, then war is also declared on The Dark Knights
of the Desolate Empire by The Avengers of Light!  We have been quietly awaiting such
a chance to expose ourselves (all interested parties contact me c/o The Barbarians:
DM 31, Attn: Timothias)!  Come, Vendetta Cartel, let us show these broke-down
"Knights" what true warriors are! -- Gemini Goldphoenix, Overlord of The Avengers of
Light
