                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out RODEKI to see 
what's new.  MVP award for LAWN BOY?  YOUR *** IS GRASS' proud of him after beating 
STONECRUSHER II and getting 21 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  MOIST 
TOWELETTE got smashed by JADE TIGER, and lost 15 points!  Was that a tear I saw in 
HOLLYMOOP's eye, as he took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't RHINO fit to be tied!  
Who was the wiseguy that said RODEKI's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Warty 
Toad?  Don't look at me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  BEASTIAL LEGION was RODEKI's most 
avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are BASH 
BROS. TOURIST?  BEASTIAL LEGION, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get 
them to accept an invitation!  Like, is WOLVERINE popular, or what?  He was 
challenged the most in all of RODEKI!  He's got a 11-6-1, is that good?  MATCHING 
SHIRTS must not be a good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  He challenged 
DACIMOUSEL.  11 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I thought 
MATCHING SHIRTS showed great skill and promise when he subdued DACIMOUSEL.  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?  VIRTUOS VIXEN bloodfeuded (is that a word?) MUDSLINGER for revenge over 
some guy's bad fortune.  Was it really worth it?  What if they had a fight and nobody 
showed up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     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

Harby -- Now is that any way to welcome back an old frie...errr...adver...well, an
old manager? -- Flagg

Suave -- Beastial Legion wasn't supposed to show up and ruin the "me ruin you and Zen
show".  The manners of those beasts! -- Flagg

Rhino -- You can have your horn back now.  Besides, I didn't care for where you put
it. -- Virtuos Vixen

Wolverine  -- Aptly named!  You certainly are tenacious! -- Blazing Blur

Killer Kabuki -- Thank you for the...uh...ummm...well thanks for the win anyhow!  I'm
guessing the gods of luck were smiling on me in that one! -- Maumii

Jade Tiger -- You've got to stop fighting in those heels!  It's not helping your
speed out any!  Like Masumii told KK, the luck gods must've been smiling! -- Rima
Adler

Historical Landmarks -- Well, how was I supposed to know?  There was no sign or
label, unless that board with the graffiti all over it was the Notice of Historicity.
-- Asbenta

Cheesy Squeezer -- I do not comprehend your function.  It appears that you do
something related to the earth pressures that force mud into mine tunnels, but this
"cheesy" substance does not have a chemical similarity to mud, and in any case, what
would be the point?  Mud squeezed into a mine shaft is Wrong and so therefore I would
assess your squeezed cheesy as Wrong, also.  I am not, however, calibrated to deal
with your squeezer.  It is confusing. -- Stonecrusher II

Matching Shirts -- Hey, listen, this thing fits like a TENT. -- Dacimousel

Hong Kong Fooey -- Ah, all is now clear.  You're a cousin to the Kung-Fu Master.  I
did wonder. -- Christellina
P.S.  Because you're crazy, and why would a crazy person be let in here otherwise?

Ghost of The Scheduler -- How did that happen? -- Mudslinger
P.S.  Aside from me being confused and enraged because the Commission thinks I'm a
dwarf.  I ask you!  I'm six-eight and neuter, I have no hair at all, do I LOOK like a
dwarf?

Flagg -- Did we say hi?  If not, Hi! -- Harby and the Delvers
