                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for TRICORUS.  Like, SEA DOGS had to be so 
embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by RAISING R'LYEH!  Way to go RAISING 
R'LYEH!  MVP award for OLYMPIA?  AMAZON ELITE's proud of her after beating DRUNKEN 
SAILOR and getting 23 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  DRUNKEN SAILOR's match 
with OLYMPIA cost him a loss of 19 points!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  
CARGO stopped HASARCH dead in his tracks!  Who was the wiseguy that said TRICORUS' 
Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Blue Dolphin Inn?  Don't look at me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  DARK HORSEMEN was TRICORUS' most 
avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  Is there some deep dark secret why 
RAISING R'LYEH's been avoiding DARK HORSEMEN so much?  Or is it just that they're too 
scared?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  PHAEDRA really fought hard against GOB.  That'll teach SEA DOGS not to 
go and kill any of AMAZON ELITE's guys again, huh!  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 gotta leave.  TRICORUS is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Cargo -- It's all yours, and welcome to it. -- Vargoi

A win against the Veteran Mercenary, wow, that will be so impressive on my resume. --
Hasarch

Shantress -- A good try, but you should have learned more.  I've got losing down to
an art form. -- Barochdal

We tried to find out what happened to our replacements, and they claim they "got lost
in a snowstorm."  We haven't had a snowstorm in DAYS, almost WEEKS, so that doesn't
wash. -- the Dark Horsemen

     If there were supposed to be more personals here, our apologies.  Hal spent a
