                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out KATI-TEI to see 
what's new.  THE PLAGUE like really fought hard to move up to 3rd from 6th.  Way to 
go!  MVP award for DEATH'S DOORMAN?  THE PLAGUE's proud of him after beating 
CHERICILLE and getting 35 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  VALGARD got 
smashed by VISITING ORC, and lost 18 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being 
unfair?  I think BRICKUS MAXIMUS should let WILLIAM CRAWFORD 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.   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  BIRDS was the most avoided team.  Is a 93-89-7 record 
really that scary?  I don't know what THE PLAGUE's been doing.  They certainly 
haven't been accepting many fights from BIRDS, that's fer sher.  Can BIRDS' SWAN be 
more popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that really the same?  
REIGN OF BLADES must not be a good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  She 
challenged QUINORE.  9 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I 
thought REIGN OF BLADES showed great skill and promise when she put to death QUINORE. 
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?  What a bunch of heartless!  I couldn't believe how many people were 
snickering when REIGN OF BLADES killed QUINORE.  So he had a 15-19-0, that's no 
excuse!  I'm always kinda bummed when a decent warrior gets killed.  CHERICILLE, of 
WANDERERS had a 11-6-1 when she got bumped off by DEATH'S DOORMAN.  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

Ambitious Guard?  Heck.  If he gets any MORE ambitious, they won't let him fight in
the arena, I bet.  He's getting too good. -- Rambling Ox

The Veteran Mercenary is a dear fellow, really.  Very accommodating. -- Chericille

I don't like dwarves.  In fact, I loathe dwarves. -- Valgard
P.S.  And the ones from Khalhums are the worst.

Noble Assassin?  It is to laugh. -- Quinore

Blinded by Knowing -- Wow, have you got an enemy in the handicapper, or what?  Talk
about uneven matches! -- Forandin

Okay, so our personals were brief to perfunctory.  Why not?  It isn't like we had any
conversations going on here. -- the Wanderers

Our congratulations to Brickus Maximus. -- the Wanderers

All -- I've been...out of circulation for the last couple of months, and my lists
are not up to date.  If you've announced a manager name, a new alliance, or changed
a manager name or alliance since the middle of February, let me know in the ads, via
diplo, or in an e-mail (Sue (at) solberg-mathews (dot) com).  For that matter, if
you just want to make sure I've got things right, you can always do the same. -- The
Saint, keeper of lists
