                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  VEASTIAN needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for 
STILJANZ?  THE FAMILY's proud of him after beating THE USEROUS MERCHANT and getting 8 
points.  This Duelmaster is like something else!  DART stopped CONVICTED ASSASSIN 
dead in his tracks!  Who was the wiseguy that said VEASTIAN's Duelmaster was paying 
for drinks at The Warty Toad?  Don't look at me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All VEASTIAN 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.)  
     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.  VEASTIAN is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby 
Tonte

Dart -- My hearty congratulations on claiming the title, getting invited to the Isle
of the Eye, winning the fight, learning a skill (sorry only one), and not killing me.
When you leave, that will mean only Treestump for us to fight? -- Tirraj

Treestump -- I was afraid to hit you lest you die and leave NOBODY for us to fight
here. -- Konjor

Ed. -- Ah.  Okay. -- Jorja

Lord Protector Dart -- Since you're going to the Isle, you don't really NEED lands,
do you?  I hope that is the case, because the Emir has been very unhelpful on that
topic of late months, and no one else is volunteering to give up any land.  But we
wish you well in the Big Time. -- Zhorg Enkhraj, Arena Manager
