                                      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.  What was the name of 
that team who got 4-1-0 this turn for a total 29-11-1 you ask?  (Sure)  QUESTIONS' 
their name, and fighting's their game!  MVP award for WHAT?  QUESTIONS' proud of it 
after beating AMBITIOUS GUARD and getting 14 points.  Talk about yer big time losers! 
WHY got smashed by GRAPEFRUIT, and lost 4 points!  What a putz!  CARGO fights so hard 
to be Duelmaster, then quits fighting and loses the title.  No one said he was a 
genius...  Was that a tear I saw in TERESAI's eye, as she took over Duelmastership?  
And wasn't KHALUHUMS DWARF fit to be tied!  I hear the top team insists all their 
warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  The warriors of RAISING R'LYEH must be getting lonely.  They were 
the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  Hhmph!  What kind 
of warriors are FRUITS?  RAISING R'LYEH, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, 
can't get them to accept an invitation!   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  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 know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  I had 
a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

When -- I truly thank you for the skills you've taught me.  Perhaps now I can answer
other questions.  You're my favorite, though. -- Grapefruit

Cargo / Teresai -- The anticipation must be intense, realizing that the commission
will likely send you letters from Greywand this turn, assuming, of course, you both
survive. -- Assur

Nyarlathotep -- I do wish you would go back to lurking under the pyramids of Egypt.
You're so out of place here. -- Teresai, hoping to make it so by firm declaration

Cargo -- Phew!  Glad you caught that one.  I did *not* want to have to do a column.
-- Barochdal

Drunken Sailor -- Oh, YES!  I liked that one very much. -- Saarveghal

And a Chardinee.  Oh, well, it's a win. -- Mahaghal

We salute the tourney participants from Tricorus. -- Jorja and the Dark Horsemen
