                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for ILLIS.  Like, ELDER GODS had to be so 
embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by ISLANDERS!  Way to go ISLANDERS!  MVP 
award for GLAZE?  SERPENTS HOLD's proud of it after beating SHARK TOOTH and getting 
15 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  STONE TEMPLE PILOT's match with TIKI cost 
him a loss of 8 points!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  HEATH BAR stopped 
IMMACULATECOLLECTION dead in its tracks!  I hear the top team insists all their 
warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.   
     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!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  Its 
been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Three-two!  Not bad.  True, ONE of the wins was over a standby, that being what
they're intended for, but the other two were "real."  For certain values of real.  Do
these challengers have hidden tourney fights, or are they just bold?  Not that it
matters to us today, but it might make a difference tomorrow. -- Fishhook
