     Greeting, o managers of great experiene.  Allow me to introduce myself.  My name
is Ravinkor and I'm the manager of the team Paragons.  All of my gladiators are
paragons of violence.  My team consists of the following future champions:  Bane of
Bones, Cythie Swift, Photon, Ironwallis (who fights in a kilt), and Fleshrender.  I
look forward with glee to all of the slaughter and agony to come.  Prepare your
warriors!  Brace them for the pain and trying times ahead of them!  A new breed of
horror has arrived in Illis.
     May all our warriors die with honor while we managers die rich and comfortable.

                   Ravinkor, mgr team Paragons

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for ILLIS.  I just can't say enough good 
things about PARAGONS.  They went 5-0-0 their first time, don't slouch, and they've 
got good oral hygiene!  MVP award for INUYASHA?  IMPROVED ILLUSION's proud of him 
after beating SYLVESTER and getting 23 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  G W 
BUSH got smashed by KUNG-FU MASTER, and lost 15 points!  The Duelmaster isn't going 
to stop just cause she's Number One!  LORD FOUL knows this.  He was challenged by the 
Duelmaster.  This Duelmaster is like something else!  FAIRYFIRE stopped LORD FOUL 
dead in his tracks!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  
Don't ask me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  The warriors of BLOODGUARD 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 IMPROVED ILLUSION?  BLOODGUARD, an easy team to beat if I 
ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  See if I ever talk to HARVEY 
again!  KING MIDAS was so low when He challenged he.  Hhmph!  I was sorry to see such 
an unfair "fight" in ILLIS.  HARVEY got 16 points after beating KING MIDAS, 32 points 
below him.  Speaking of challenging 31 points above did you hear about ELMINSTER of 
IMPROVED ILLUSION vs. ISLANDERS' BELITRIS?  (And how was that intro!) Do you think 
ELMINSTER knew something before he challenged BELITRIS?  He got a win and 22 points.  
What will the guy do next?  People were asking me did BANN REALLY challenge JOHNNY 
APPLESEED?  (all right, maybe they didn't, but it sounded good!) It wasn't a 
spectacular fight, or anything, but JOHNNY APPLESEED wants me to write about it since 
he was bested by BANN.  Satisfied?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, 
that's what!!!   
     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.  ILLIS is like such a dump, and you guys smell 
too much!  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Assur -- You will be missed. -- Jorja

Lord Foul -- Drat. -- Sylvester
P.S.  Hey, it's late and I'm not feeling chatty.

Appleseed -- For an illusion, you're very physical. -- Coco Nuttal

Inuyasha -- Oh, heck.  This is not the time when I feel like snappy comments, and a
loss doesn't help any. -- Chagua Korbin

Fairyfire -- Whew!  That was close.  Glad I didn't get stuck with the column. --
Belitris

Tabbek -- So long as you're giving wins to us, I don't mind fighting you at all.
Thanks. -- Dillis Rhin

Assur -- Best of luck inyour travels.  I'll see you in 83, perhaps. -- Sigurd and the
Bloodguard

Sylvester -- I thought you had me there for a moment, but it was just a moment.  Good
fight. -- Lord Foul

Johnny Appleseed -- Well fought, sir, well fought.  Nice learns as well.  I am
jealous. -- Urmung Cosbu

Dillis Rhin -- Did I detect sarcasm when you told me I was a fine opponent?  The
short duration of the fight tells me you may have been sarcastic.... -- Tabbek

Chagua Korbin -- Well, that's one apiece for each of us.  Perhaps we should go best
of three one day? -- Tabbek
