                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out TRICORUS to see 
what's new.  Too bad, DARK HORSEMEN, but SERPENTS HOLD 2 was just too good to be 
stopped.  MVP award for JUBHAL?  DARK HORSEMEN's proud of him after beating WHAT and 
getting 24 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  WHAT got smashed by JUBHAL, and 
lost 21 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think HABU should 
let WHY be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  Who was the wiseguy 
that said TRICORUS' Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Silver Chalice?  Don't 
look at me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  The warriors of SERPENTS HOLD 2 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 AMAZON ELITE?  SERPENTS HOLD 2, an easy team to 
beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  Like, is WHY 
popular, or what?  She was challenged the most in all of TRICORUS!  She's got a 
15-17-0, is that good?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  JUBHAL really fought hard against WHAT.  That'll teach QUESTIONS not to 
go and kill any of DARK HORSEMEN's guys again, huh!  Hey you guys, don't you think 
your families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Answer of the Week:  Because the bridge is out.

It's been devastating here, and we've been devastated.  We're too embarrassed (and
hung over) to write individual personals. -- Jubhal, Galdor, and Marganad

And while we won, those were wimpy standbys, so we don't have anything to boast
about, either. -- Windsong and Before Sunrise

Our congratulations to Phaedra. -- the Dark Horsemen
