                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out ILLIS to see 
what's new.  Talk about yer big time losers!  FROMM got smashed by YAD-THADDAG, and 
lost 15 points!  Was that a tear I saw in RATTLER's eye, as it took over 
Duelmastership?  And wasn't JOHNNY APPLESEED fit to be tied!  Who was the wiseguy 
that said ILLIS' Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Dripping Blade?  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.  SHEWISH MUNCHIES was the most avoided team.  Is a 4-8-0 record 
really that scary?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are ELDER GODS?  SHEWISH MUNCHIES, 
an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  
Like, is TIKI popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of ILLIS!  He's 
got a 6-4-0, is that good?  People were asking me did NODENS REALLY challenge TIKI?  
(all right, maybe they didn't, but it sounded good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, 
or anything, but TIKI wants me to write about it since he lost to NODENS.  Satisfied? 
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  It was kind of sad, seeing old DREW stumbling around the arena, before 
VORVADOSS finished it off.  Oh well!  Hey you guys, don't you think your families 
would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  Its been 
really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte
