                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in VEASTIAN!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Like, WARRIORS OF STEEL had to 
be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by THE FAMILY!  Way to go THE 
FAMILY!  MVP award for JONAS SWITCHBLADE?  WARRIORS OF STEEL's proud of him after 
beating KENSELJO and getting 16 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  KENSELJO's 
match with JONAS SWITCHBLADE cost him a loss of 11 points!  What a putz!  ELDARRAN 
fights so hard to be Duelmaster, then quits fighting and loses the title.  No one 
said she was a genius...  And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit 
of...(!)  Oh well, welcome VAISTINIE.  Aren't THE FAMILY proud.  (Oh, my.) Who was 
the wiseguy that said VEASTIAN's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Welcome 
Wench?  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.  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 gotta leave.  VEASTIAN is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Eldarran -- Ouch.  I guess I shouldn't have had that lobster last night, eh?  It
didn't sit well on my stomach at all. -- Ghost of Lirvenz, victim of low constitution
and not enough armor

Felstava -- Well, I was a victim of stupidity, I guess, but at least it wasn't fatal.
-- Vaistinie

Steel Spar -- So what are you a brother to, an I-beam?  It felt like that was what
you were hitting me with. -- Kenseljo

Daniel Silverlo -- Too bad your name doesn't fit the forms, eh?  Fifteen characters
has always seemed a bit short, but it's a rule, and I will work with it.  Such is
life. -- Nekkar Again

Jeremiah Broadb -- Yep, crushed under the weight of those extra letters. -- Babar

Marius -- We've given up on trying to get Jorja to write a diplo or letter, she means
well but... it always drops to the bottom of the to-do list.  So any comments we can
offer in the newsletter, we will. -- Ghost of Lirvenz

Eldarran -- Oh.  Um, how about that we, or at least me, have or has a weakness for
you? -- Kenseljo

Fe;stava -- Yeah, probably.  Go with what works until you graduate.  THEN you can
experiment. -- Vaistinie
