                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  TRICORUS needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for 
SAMURAI?  RONIN's proud of him after beating GALBEI and getting 13 points.  Talk 
about yer major upsets!  GALBEI's match with SAMURAI cost him a loss of 10 points!  
And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome 
ZALGEI.  Aren't DARK HORSEMEN proud.  (Oh, my.) Is the Duelmaster really being a real 
snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All TRICORUS 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.  TRICORUS is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Veteran Mercenary.  (sigh)  He's reconsidering this "gladiator stuff," but it won't
do him any good.  He's got no pension, so if he wants to eat, he stays with the
arena.  No chance of getting out by graduation or even death, either. -- Zalgei

Zao -- Wowie zowie.  Ouch. -- Margalh
P.S.  I wonder what those idiots in the stands thought they were shouting about?

     One guy thought another guy looked at his (the first guy's) girlfriend funny...
     and it all just got out of hand a bit. -- Ed.

Black Lotus -- Very unhealthy, you know. -- Galbei

Samurai -- Let's get those turkeys in the stands, eh?  What do they MEAN, "Do we
consider ourselves warriors"?  We aren't.  We're gladiators, quite a different thing.
Do they consider themselves any judge?  Bah. -- Aillendei

We of the Desolate Empire Alliance want to announce with glad hearts that Heathen

freely! -- Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire
