                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out ZENSU to see 
what's new.  Too bad, BEYOND THE PALE, but LETHAL LEGION was just too good to be 
stopped.  MVP award for GRILLED GRIZZLY?  EXOTIC TASTES' proud of him after beating 
SELVUN and getting 21 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  SELVUN got smashed by 
GRILLED GRIZZLY, and lost 16 points!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  
TRIANGLE MAN stopped BELLA DEANE dead in hers tracks!  I hear the top team insists 
all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR 
photos.   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  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'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Triangle Man -- THANK you!  I am so glad to give up the title to somebody who earned
it by defeating me in a fair fight, you can't imagine!  And I'm sure Arenamaster
Diego is glad to see the title in such good hands, too.  Thank you very much. --
Bella Deane

And from this thrilling peak, we descend to going two-two against standbys.  Oh,
well. -- Bella

M. Chardinee -- (slight bow)  Charmed, I'm sure. -- Selvun

I don't LIKE assassins, okay?  They make me nervous, and I'm not at my best when I'm
nervous. -- Elda Mainz

Oh, damn.  Er, sorry, M. Chardinee, I'm not mad at you.  At least, not principally.
I just broke up with my boyfriend, and with any luck no one will find his body, but
it put me off my stroke. -- Daceana Linz

Ambitious Guard -- Give it up, pal.  This isn't your gig. -- Chuck Elvis

Our congratulations to Mateo, tourney victor. -- Jorja and Beyond the Pale

What's the point of sending us DA Meat if we don't get to have a barbecue? -- a
grumpy Shewish Giant

Selvun -- You seem to be improving.  It's about time. -- M. Kellervan Chardinee

Elda Mainz -- I'm getting tired of catching all this hate over me being an assassin.
I'm not. -- Darol Kanda, Convicted Murderer, NOT Assassin

Daceana Linz -- Young woman, you were NOT paying attention.  A successful gladiator
must be able to put all thoughts of the outside world away from his or her mind
during the fight.  Work on this. -- M. Kellervan Chardinee

Chuck Elvis -- I realize that the specimen you met today was less than stellar, but
that is WHY he was there.  To learn, and to get some of the conceit knocked out of
him. -- Captain Sarnj, Seventh Imperial Guards

Reaper -- Hmm, that model doesn't seem very sturdy.  Perhaps if I change the angle of
the whigaro and adjust the gizmostat....  Thanks for your assistance in this testing.
-- Dar Hasanj, Master of Golems, Artificer of the Thieves' Guild

Fear -- Remind me to bring a book next time. -- Beladj d'Alor, Noble but not Osksian

Toxin -- Sometimes I wonder why I left Mordant, you know? -- Hollon Tegra (half
Shewish, stunted due to childhood slavery)
