                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out FRATSFA to see 
what's new.  Cut this out and put it in your scrapbooks, FLOWER GIRLS!  'Cause they 
got 3-0-0 and moved up to 3rd!  MVP award for CAPTAIN AAA?  FREEDOM FARCE's proud of 
him after beating TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE and getting 15 points.  Talk about yer major 
upsets!  PANTRY OF PAIN's match with HOT HONEYSUCKLE cost him a loss of 10 points!  
What a putz!  ABU JR. 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 URSILA RILVAR's 
eye, as she took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't GRAFFITI fit to be tied!  Who was 
the wiseguy that said FRATSFA's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Victory 
Tavern?  Don't look at me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  The warriors of FLOWER GIRLS 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 WHERE AM I??  FLOWER GIRLS, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, 
can't get them to accept an invitation!  Can IRON CATHEDRAL's WARRIOR X be more 
popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that really the same?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  I was SO depressed when I heard SPECTRAL OSSUARY got killed.  He was 
just a kid, and didn't get a fair chance in FRATSFA, or anything!  I see SPECTRAL 
OSSUARY got killed by SUN QIAN of WAH CHING.  Now I want to see some serious 
Bloodfeud action out there!  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.  FRATSFA is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby 
Tonte

Abu Jr. -- A salute and congratulations for winning the DM Title.  Bring you, that
big weapon of yours, and your Dad, with whatever weapon he has left, and celebrate
the night away at The Flower Shoppe.  My girls are awaiting anxiously. -- Lady Fern

Vicar General -- Don't worry.  It will be our secret.  You know what I mean. (giggle)
-- Searing Sunflower

Warrior X -- You are the man!  Thanks for letting me finish on top.  Come and visit
me at The Flower Shoppe and perhaps we can figure out quite a few more ways to
conclude our tussles.  I like you. -- Haughty Holly

Keep Of Shackles -- I like a guy who can go and go and go.  You just have to come to
my room at The Flower Shoppe.  Bring those shackles.  Oh, yeah! Won't we have fun! --
Deadly Daisy

Tonio Salagaza -- That was fun; don't stay away too long; you hear? -- Crazy Colea

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  And loads of fun and games. (wink) -- Lady Fern, Flower
Girls

Strahd -- It makes me angry when allies challenge each other!  AARGH!! -- Temper

Kung-Fu Master -- Those silly forms you were flowing through at the start of our
fight bored me.  I had to interrupt you. -- Sinister Saint

Even more full of yourself now, Haughty Holly? -- Warrior X

I don't like being 0-2 against your girls, Lady Fern.  Keep them away from my stable!
-- DD

Congrats to Abu Jr.!  You do your namesake proud! -- DD

Graffiti -- Think of me as... a sandblaster on the walls!  Most wall scribbles are
rather boring, when you get right down to it.  Why not blast 'em off? -- Ursila
Rilvar

Pantry of Pain -- Oh.  Damn.  I was hoping you were a Pantry of Cookies or something.
-- Ellis Tate, feeling the onset of the blind munchies

Crazy Colea -- It is, of course, totally proper that I am the recognized Favorite.
I'm that kind of guy, after all.  But that I should get the accolade due to the "scum
sympathy vote" is annoying. -- Tonio Salagaza
