                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for ILLIS.  MVP award for I'M A BASHER?  
BASHAHOLICS ANON's proud of him after beating ROSE SHELL and getting 8 points.  Talk 
about yer big time losers!  KIRRALA got smashed by MINNIE, and lost 1 points!  This 
Duelmaster is like something else!  DERELICT stopped KUNG-FU MASTER dead in his 
tracks!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!  
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed 
up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  ILLIS is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  Its 
been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte
