                                      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.  Too bad, STREET 
WALKERS, but DARQUE FORCES was just too good to be stopped.  MVP award for ROSELYN?  
DARQUE FORCES' proud of her after beating KHALHUMS DWARF and getting 17 points.  Talk 
about yer major upsets!  MR BEEFY's match with YUMALESCA cost him a loss of 10 
points!  What a putz!  PAYNE fights so hard to be Duelmaster, then quits fighting and 
loses the title.  No one said she was a genius...  Was that a tear I saw in CALLOUS 
COURTNEY's eye, as she took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't VETERAN MERCENARY fit to 
be tied!  Who was the wiseguy that said STORMCROWE's Duelmaster was paying for drinks 
at The Shadow's Fountain?  Don't look at me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  The warriors 
of DARQUE FORCES must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you 
guys know something that I don't?  I don't know what STREET WALKERS' been doing.  
They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from DARQUE FORCES, that's fer 
sher.  Like, is GELIDNIA HALE popular, or what?  She was challenged the most in all 
of STORMCROWE!  She's got a 8-22-0, is that good?  Speaking of challenging 26 points 
above did you hear about NJORD of GOD OR GODDESS vs. STREET WALKERS' SLAMBO?  (And 
how was that intro!) SLAMBO defeated NJORD, and was I surprised (right!).  But its a 
good thing SLAMBO could stop laughing long enough to give NJORD a good pounding.  
People were asking me did ELISHAR REALLY challenge MINI DRIVER?  (all right, maybe 
they didn't, but it sounded good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but 
MINI DRIVER wants me to write about it since she was defeated by ELISHAR.  Satisfied? 
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All STORMCROWE ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  It was kind of sad, seeing old GELIDNIA HALE stumbling 
around the arena, before ANDROMEDA finished her off.  Oh well!  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.  STORMCROWE is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Andromeda -- I guess wooing is out of the question then. -- Aegir

White Bear -- I see that you and I are meant to be together by the match-up gods. --
Frigga

In the mormory of Stormwind (as Njord passes gas)

Gelidnia -- Ouch!! -- Elishar

Aurora Marie -- How else is an orc to get a date unless he carries them away? --
Aegir

White Bear -- I would be honored to join you in a little hibernation on one
condition, no armor or pointy things. -- Frigga *limping across room*

Jorja -- Hope you get to feeling better soon. -- Sir Blackguard

Elishar -- For a golem, you lost that one very well. -- Gelidnia Hale
P.S.  I'm sorry you're a golem, you'd be a pleasant person, I'm sure, but there it
is, managers just don't care about that kind of thing.

Njord -- Oh, heck. -- Ghost of Stormwind

Frigga -- Trust me on this, you do not need a fur coat.  I'll just wrap myself around
you and keep you warm, hmm? -- White Bear

Sapphira -- I was trying to lighten your darkness, but I see that it is not an easy
matter. -- Aurora Marie

Frigga -- The black bears were too conspicous and got killed off. -- White Bear
