     And this week, we have the Rirorni Spy.  The whole situation is pathetic.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out ROCANIS to see 
what's new.  MVP award for WOODWORM?  BAD APPLES' proud of him after beating WOLFGORE 
and getting 18 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  MALUS S'PROUT got smashed by 
PREATORIAN, and lost 9 points!  And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's 
habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome MEABEER.  Aren't GET proud.  (Oh, my.) Is the 
Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  The warriors of BAD APPLES must be 
getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I 
don't?  I don't know what KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS' been doing.  They certainly haven't 
been accepting many fights from BAD APPLES, that's fer sher.   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All ROCANIS 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.)  
     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.  ROCANIS is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby 
Tonte

I have not been receiving my physical turns in a reliable manner lately.  If there
are diplos with the turns that go missing, they're gone for good.  So if you send me
a diplo and do not see an acknowledgement of receipt in the personals, know that I
have not gotten it (yet).  If you have email, contact me at Livia AT reality DOT com.
If you don't have email, keep trying with the diplos.  We are working on this
problem. -- the Scribe/Jorja/Leeta
P.S.  If you email me, put "Re DM" on the subject line.
