     The swamp reverberated with the sound of Voo-Doo's cry, "No!"
     No sooner had Marais's head been dragged under the swamp than the painted one
threw himself prone and began to kick and scream.  To Goat he looked like nothing
more than a two year old throwing a temper tantrum.
     Suddenly the swamp began to bubble.  It looked almost as if the swamp were
boiling.  Then the creature that had grabbed Marais surfaced, thrashing wildly.
Soon, it lay still. 
     Goat could see something wrapped around the creature's throat.  Marais's head
came up and she slowly unwrapped her tongue from around the creature's neck.
     Voo-Doo's sobs turned to sniffles as he wiped the tears from his eyes, then he
held his arms out to the karragit. 
     Goat raised his arms and a glowing sphere surrounded the pair.  The two
dissipated in a flash and Goat was left standing in the swamp holding ABRAXIS's
precious mud.  The cry of 'no' had now been replaced by Goat's musical laughter.

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  STORMCROWE needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Like, VENDETTA 
INC. had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by MOJO P@TROL!  Way 
to go MOJO P@TROL!  Cut this out and put it in your scrapbooks, SUPERIOR FORCES!  
'Cause they got 3-0-0 and moved up to 7th!  MVP award for BOMBSHELL?  DARQUE FORCES' 
proud of her after beating MASTER DARQUE and getting 20 points.  Talk about yer major 
upsets!  MOTHER's match with DAGORA SAVON cost her a loss of 7 points!  This 
Duelmaster is like something else!  ZINDELLA AZRON stopped MARILYN dead in hers 
tracks!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!  
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  AVID FANS was 
STORMCROWE's most avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  Hhmph!  What kind of 
warriors are MYTH TAKES?  AVID FANS, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't 
get them to accept an invitation!  Can EMETICS' THE SMELL OF IT be more popular than 
me?  It was challenged the most, but is that really the same?  Speaking of 
challenging 38 points above did you hear about NORA BATES of MORDRED'S MADMEN vs. 
DARQUE FORCES' HOT LIPS?  (And how was that intro!) NORA BATES lost to HOT LIPS, but 
she got 6 points.  HOT LIPS won, and got 2 points.  I don't get it.  NEAR MYTH must 
not be a good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  He challenged DOOR # 3.  13 is a 
big difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I thought NEAR MYTH showed great 
skill and promise when he defeated DOOR # 3.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big 
deal!   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  What a bummer!  MASTER DARQUE got wasted 
by BOMBSHELL!  But with a 5-4-2, I guess VENDETTA INC. aren't too bummed.  D'ya think 
ABRAXIS II is feeling guilty for killing A DEAL'S DEAL's BROMO, a mere boy?  Naah, I 
doubt it.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     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.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Zindella -- Of all the warriors I didn't want to fight, you were the one.  My
managers says when I die or graduate (either is a distinct possibility at the moment)
he will share with you the perils of running a low con and low wit Parry Lunge. --
Marilyn

Sunflash -- Sorry to send you to ADM on such a sour note, but the boss gets mad and
screams a lot when I lose.  Not just the regular ranting either, but the kinds of
personal barbs that make you question life and your purpose in this world.  Not that
I have the wit to contemplate any of this, but I'm just saying.... -- Hot Lips
P.S.  He is so touchy sometimes.

Alice Osborne -- I have a special strat for your types, but I obviously wasn't
running it. -- Mother

Storm Serpent -- Not sure if your manager is paying attention, but I'll write a
personal just the same.  I just had to re-challenge to make sure that it was the
numbers that sucked and not me.  The jury is really still out. -- Bombshell

Walrus -- Was surprised I lost till I saw your style and FE advantage. -- Boom Boom

All -- I meant to print these last turn, but forgot, but here are the numbers for
Scorpius 8-5-14-21-7-8-21 AB.  93 learned at graduation.  MO/MO LS for faves. -- The
Omnimancer, mgr. of Knight Breed
P.S.  Speed and Size could be +/- a point or two because I don't have the overview in
front of me at the moment.

Dagora Savon -- I seem to be losing the skill battle here, please tip generously. --
The Beer Vendor

Jilted Jill -- Again, apologies, but you were the highest available to me, but as
usual, I'm forced to clean up the mess after everyone leaves. -- The Janitor

Shard -- Thanks for the skills, I thought you'd forgotten how to counterattack. -- A
Talent Scout

C.F.H. (VI) -- I think you suffered from a case of experiencis mismatchitis last
month. -- The Statistician

Vor'Eiv Tavers -- The fights may be descriptive, but the results are always
disappointing. -- Colour Commentator

All -- Little no-name saved our rep from a total wash-out, #3 was confirmed in a
sedate ceremony, an I needs a new neck-scruff after Florrie tried ta wring mine. (wif
me still in it) -- Applejack

Sunflash -- A hot-shot plunger, good fer you.  Here's raisin one to ya as I'd a
probably done somethin different and not gotten the benefit of those bodacious
benefits.  My other arena thanks ya as well, as dat's just tha organizational type
what dey needs fer a guildhouse manager.  A hot-shot, hard-headed, long-winded
plunger...hopefully wif a sense a humor, but dat's not a prerequisite. -- Applejack

The Janitor -- Don't feel bad for it...s'who you are, an there's only one "Janitor."
Now, if you start putting on airs and calling yourself the "Custodian" welllll...
<icky icky> -- Jill

Fire Hawk -- You see me learnin those parry skills.  I wonder why, and hard learned
they were to. -- Florrie

Pyrotechnics -- Can you beat that.  A pay raise.  And since I'm now getting paid to
mouth off, first rule:  No Sniveling, you wants to get fed.  That's it.  I comes up
with another impartin rule, you'll be clue'd. -- #3

Nora Bates -- The cheese is Swiss, and the consensus of my fellow fighting
brothers...and sisters...is, I've been "patched" (?) ...and "needs" patching. (?)
Sounds gruesome but I'm assured there's ministrations involved. -- Bromo

Francine Kruger -- It's part of the in-process.  You un-lucked out, and I nearly
parted my own hairline...some process. -- Concertina

Hot Lips -- Yes, indeed, quite feverish, in fact.  This could be a bad sign.  Some
kind of illness.  You should probably be quarantined.  Hmm...maybe YOU should go to
the Infirmary! -- Sunflash

A Talent Scout -- Ah, as in "them as can't do, scout"?  But wind sprints might help
you. -- Shard
P.S.  Or not.

Kothas Japfin -- Curse all golems!  May your lubricating fluids freeze and your
metals become brittle!  May your instrumentation become frosted over and inoperable!
May your battery be drained! -- Icelinia

Kothas -- That's her red-headed temper speaking.  Loudly. -- Sunflash

Abraxis II -- What Icelinia said!  And then some! -- Frostbite, not feeling original
today

Boom Boom -- You're a cute kid, even if you ARE darque.  Come down to the beach with
me to discuss cabbages and kings, hmm? -- Walrus

Florrie -- (bowing slightly at where his waist would be if he had one)  Indeed I did,
madam, and it was a striking sight. -- Walrus the ever-gallant

Icelinia -- Sorry, my lady, you fought bravely, till the end.  Maybe when I see you
in the tavern I'll buy you some ale.  'Til we meet again.  Chow. -- Kothas Japfin

Marilyn -- Sorry, my friend.  We had a great fight.  I would love to dance again;
just ask anytime.  It was a long three minute grueling fight.  I thought you had me
for a minute.  But I sucked it up and came up on top.  Thanks for a great fight. --
Zindella

The Beer Vendor -- Word of advice:  don't drop your soap while in the shower.  Man, I
know you can do better.  Do you need some training.  I'll be in the gym every
Wednesday at 5:00 a.m.  Ok. -- Dagor Savon

Colour Commentator -- What, no play by play action from this fight from you?  Yeah, I
don't blame, my boy.  'Til we meet again. -- Vor'evu Tavers

Death Fog -- Hey, good fight.  I didn't even break a sweat or a nail.  Alright, I
wish all my fights were this easy. -- Tearsa

To All -- First and foremost I would like to thank Zindella Azron for stepping up and
showing everyone that she's someone to look out for.  And my congrats to Zindella for
winning the Duelmaster again.  And congrats to all of MOJO P@TROL for all winning
this last turn.  I'm buying everyone a drunk in the tavern.  So let's go and party.
That is all. -- VooDoo

To all -- I would like to thank my manager VooDoo and CFH for my training.  I would
like to also thank all my family here in MOJO P@TROL for putting up with me.  I've
been a real pain since I lost my first Duelmaster.  And a special thanks to my friend
Marilyn because without her help I wouldn't be Duelmaster. -- Zindella Azron

Frost Bite -- I don't know what to say except thank you for helping me train.  Are
you being developed as an experiment for your style? -- Abraxis II

Jorja -- Are you going to send me anything on how to run rippers?  As you can see I
have been lucky enough to win some fights.  When do they start learning att. skills?
Still have not learned one yet.  Just parry and riposte. -- Goat

Flamin Florrie -- That just burns.  I always carry a backup.  Nice open hand cops.  I
was kind of surprised you did not throw any kicks.  Nice fight, Kung Fu Florrie. --
Fire Hawk

Gargle Spew -- It looks real dangerous up here.  Good fight. -- Goat VI

Mojo P@trol -- Congrats to you on your attainment of the throne. -- Vendetta Inc

Goat -- Sorry, I mislaid your diplo, I think it's near the bottom of one of the big
stacks next to my desk.  I haven't FORGOTTEN, exactly, in fact I have a stack of
ripper fights set aside, at least some of which I will probably send you.  But this
has been a harried summer.  Not an excuse, just an explanation. -- Jorja

30 July 2004
The total number of fights calculated was reported as 250 fights.  This is a
misprint.  It should have read "over 2,500 fights." -- Baphomet
