                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  ILLIS needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for FROMM?  
SERPENTS HOLD's proud of it after beating YAD-THADDAG and getting 20 points.  Talk 
about yer major upsets!  YAD-THADDAG's match with FROMM cost him a loss of 16 points! 
This Duelmaster is like something else!  RATTLER stopped CHAGUA KORBIN dead in his 
tracks!  Who was the wiseguy that said ILLIS' Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The 
Swinging Aardvark?  Don't look at me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  SHEWISH 
MUNCHIES was ILLIS' most avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  Is there some 
deep dark secret why ELDER GODS' been avoiding SHEWISH MUNCHIES so much?  Or is it 
just that they're too scared?   
     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!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Two-three.  Again.  Wins over standbys, losses to other gladiators.  And I'm leaving,
which worries me just a little.  What will the team do without me?  I guess we, or
somebody, will find out. -- Chagua Korbin
