                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for TRICORUS.  MVP award for VARGOI?  DARK 
HORSEMEN's proud of him after beating BLADERUNNER and getting 24 points.  Talk about 
yer big time losers!  BLADERUNNER got smashed by VARGOI, and lost 16 points!  Our 
last turn's Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to KHALUHUMS DWARF, and FEAR OF THE DARK 
has made the way for a new Duelmaster!  VOICES IN MY HEAD of RAISING R'LYEH takes 
FEAR OF THE DARK's place.  (But seriously, who could ever take the place of FEAR OF 
THE DARK?  Oh, all right.) Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his 
teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  DARK HORSEMEN was TRICORUS' most avoided team.  Is 
there some award for that?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are RAISING R'LYEH?  DARK 
HORSEMEN, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an 
invitation!  Can SEA DOGS' CARGO be more popular than me?  He was challenged the 
most, but is that really the same?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All TRICORUS ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to 
hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  TRICORUS is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Voices in My Head -- Listen, that was supposed to STOP with the new meds! -- Vargoi
P.S.  Don't tell anyone else, or they'll lock me up!

Coloroutofspace -- Nah, not today.  I ran out of color film, so I'm just going to
look at you in black and white, which loses a lot of your impact, you know? -- Garanh

The Userous Merchant?  What an idiot!  How can he believe he can get blood out of a
stone or gold out of a gladiator? -- Saralai

I felt sorry for the Captured Orc, okay?  Sue me. -- Kalmbargh

I find the very existence of the Ambitious Guard an offense. -- Tialvai Graywind
P.S.  Not to mention his offensive personality.

Bladerunner -- As it happens, I rather like baked tortoise. -- Vargoi

Coloroutofspace -- I've been trying for MONTHS to get the dyers here to match you, to
no avail. -- Tialvai

Reaper -- I'll talk to almost anybody who's prepared to write personals. -- Jorja

Congratulations to Sandy and Metropolitan for their tourney victor status. -- Jorja

31 May 2008
Any and all who live in the 805 area, I would like for you to call me so we can get
together for BBQ's, softball games, and so on.  It has been a while since the last
get together (several years).  It was a blast and I am sure the next one will be
also.  We just have to do it.  All alliances are welcome.  Just because my warriors
leave your warrior beaten and bloody in defeat does not mean we can't have a beer or
five together.  I'll even buy the first round.  So call 805-588-3419 and ask for Dave
a.k.a. Misfit, former member of the Green and Purple Polka Dot Alliance (GAPPDA).
