                                      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, SUPERIOR 
FORCES had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by DARQUE FORCES!  
Way to go DARQUE FORCES!  Cut this out and put it in your scrapbooks, DARQUE FORCES!  
'Cause they got 4-1-0 and moved up to 1st!  MVP award for SHARD?  NORTHERN LIGHTS' 
proud of him after beating BOMBSHELL and getting 15 points.  Talk about yer big time 
losers!  FROSTFLARE got smashed by DANGEROUS CRIMINAL, and lost 13 points!  Like, 
ALICE OSBORNE must be pretty gutsy!  He challenged the Duelmaster from DARQUE FORCES. 
Does this guy have a death wish or what!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being 
unfair?  I think HOT LIPS should let ALICE OSBORNE be Duelmaster for a while, without 
fighting about it.  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.  The warriors 
of SUPERIOR FORCES must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you 
guys know something that I don't?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are DARQUE FORCES?  
SUPERIOR FORCES, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an 
invitation!  Can A DEAL'S A DEAL's GREZELDA be more popular than me?  She was 
challenged the most, but is that really the same?  AMY YATES must not be a good 
enough fighter to get in fair fights.  She challenged WALRUS.  10 is a big 
difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I thought AMY YATES showed great skill 
and promise when she was defeated by WALRUS.  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?  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 know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Frostflare -- Thanks for your concern.  It's noted, but I've made my piece.  So till
we meet again, Frostflare, ponder how it will feel when I beat you. -- Jara

All -- I'm sorry to say that as manager of the Lords of War, I may not be able to
continue playing for a while.  Lack of funds has taken its toll on me.  I will be
gone for a little while but I'm coming up for release hopefully in 8/05.  If I'm
released I will be back and also going to the FtF in January 06.  Well, looking
forward to meeting all of you.  Take care and the best of luck on the sands. -- Chris
Seals (a.k.a. Warrior Lord)

from your day job. -- Aunty Macassar

Amy Yates -- Time can be real relative, like...and that fight seemed to take, like, a
loooooooong time. -- Grezelda

Francine Kruger -- Aren't I the clever one?  Making a lot out of next to nothing. --
Zoey

The Beer Vendor -- Listen, you!  When I say I want a beer, I mean I want it NOW. --
Shard

Dangerous Criminal.  Oh, yes? -- Frostflare

Asu -- Okay, so you're superior to me in the arena.  And this proves what?  That you
have no life outside the practice rooms, that's what.  Whereas I can make
conversation on a number of topics. -- Walrus

Ambitious Guard -- Don't quit your day job. -- Icelinia

Raggedy Ann -- Aaaaaah!  Horridly darque! -- Frostbite

Ed. -- Well, some kings get pickled one way, and some get pickled another.  It
depends on the cabbages. -- Walrus

     Hmmmm...purple cabbages must be especially bad. -- Ed.

ATTENTION ALL YOU ALLIANCE-TYPE PEOPLE:
For the purposes of tourney newsletter alliance listings (when I am able to do them),
you may only be listed in ONE alliance.  In other words, you have to choose!  If you
are a part of Englebert's Alliance and Englebert's Alliance is "part" of Ruthrauf's
Alliance, I will list you EITHER as part of Englebert's Alliance OR as part of
Ruthrauf's Alliance, NOT both.  The default would be the top-level alliance,
Ruthrauf's, in this example.  If you'd rather be listed separately, let me know and I
will do so, but that will be the only listing you get. -- The Saint, keeper of ever-
more-complicated lists

The Company of Brothers (TCB) welcomes two new members to our alliance...Liam the
Goth and Buddy Lee.  We have no doubt that they will prove to be assets to our
alliance and the general dueling community. -- Baphomet, co-founder, T.C.B.
