                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out TRICORUS to see 
what's new.  MVP award for KOLVEGH?  DARK HORSEMEN's proud of him after beating 
INANNIA and getting 16 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  INANNIA's match with 
KOLVEGH cost her a loss of 11 points!  Was that a tear I saw in DROGOI's eye, as he 
took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't CHRISEIS fit to be tied!  Who was the wiseguy 
that said TRICORUS' Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Silver Chalice?  Don't 
look at me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  THE NEVYNS was the most avoided team.  Is a 12-17-0 record really 
that scary?  I don't know what FRUITS' been doing.  They certainly haven't been 
accepting many fights from THE NEVYNS, that's fer sher.  Can WENSINWASIN M.H.'s 
WOLVERINE be more popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that really 
the same?   
     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?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  I had a fun 
time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Chriseis -- Don't speak so blatantly about the competition here in Tricorus, or even
gripe about the throne.  It will be a memory for you before you know it.  Whether it
be your graduating or me pummeling you and taking it from you. -- Spider-Man

All -- Due to the declining attendance at the Tricorus arena, the warriors of From
Beyond are returning from whence they came.

Chriseis -- I should probably be upset at losing that one, but I'm not.  I want a
vacation. -- Reidi
P.S.  Besides, anyone determined enough to break two scimitars deserves the win.

Hannah -- Hard-hearted, aren't you? -- Tsomegh

I must be doing something right, I drew a standby.  Always rather more of a relief
than not. -- Drogoi

Wolverine -- Gads, you bit my face off! -- Ghost of Haroch

29 September 2003
All -- Let it be known that the Firm accepts SOL into its ranks.  The Firm is:
SunGod, Dark Spirit, Youngblood, Tripwire, and SOL.
