                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of COLLUSION COVE!  Once again I've been called out of 
retirement for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with LIMERICK?  
He actually beat COLLUSION COVE's FRIENDLY CONSTABLE, and walked away with 19 more 
points from the fight.  Major screwup at CRAZY CREEPS.  FAIRY GODMOTHER lost 3 points 
to SUE CHURZ.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe FAIRY GODMOTHER will provide more 
easy wins...  Try as she might, BUSTED NUTS wasn't good enough at persuading ENIGMA 
XXV to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Advice to fighters with a 1 
will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, FUNKY FOLK!  In my 
day, no team with a 90-123-11 would scare me off!  What's the problem, CRAZY CREEPS?  
     Warriors of COLLUSION COVE unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Some 
people in COLLUSION COVE think FUNKY FOLK was too harsh when they sent DAN D'LION 
(2-0-0) to the Dark Arena.  Them's the breaks, I say.  So FUNKY FOLK sent ROBIN 
STORRS to the Dark Arena.  Big deal.  Plenty more fighters where ROBIN STORRS came 
from.  Dime a dozen...  Now, Spyreporters...  How long have I been here?  I got 
people to see, places to go...   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  Are you 
as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Where is a good FONZer when you need one?  (Scratch that good.) -- Crazy Creeps
Scribe

     Acapulco.

No longer trustworthy, Mr. Trustworthy Scribe?  Were you ever? -- Scrooge McDuck
(hating all members of The Press--or related)

AND, that Friendly Constable wasn't really friendly either.  I think he's on the
take.  Glad I spracked him! -- Scrooge McDuck

Soultaker, you have always been into pain for godmothers, haven't you.  Tsk, tsk. --
Fairy Godmother

Shmegma, me hurtum.  You bad man. -- Tonto

Fratsfan Noble, you want me to make you 7 inches taller?  Well, at least that was a
more reasonable height addition than Death Stud requested. -- Fairy Godmother
P.S. Let me finish this Cinderella gig first; then we'll see.

How about having the next Togs sometime in... 2012?  That sounds like a good time. --
Arenamaster Harkon

To the manager of Losers -- What's the big idea killing off other managers?  We need
them!  And you should be glad to have losing managers around... if they really do
lose. -- Harkon

Scrooge McDuck -- Next time, I'll try embezzling.  The heck with this "trustworthy"
stuff. -- Not-So-Trustworthy Scribe

Huh, despite Hark's carping and complaining, and despite me not getting any of the
action personally, I'm glad you-all sent SOMEONE to the Dark Arena. -- Jorge Black
Orc

Razor XXV -- Dammit, don't DO that!  It makes me look bad in front of my peers.
Doesn't matter how many times I tell them "A gladiatorial combat is not the same as
an assassination," they still sneer. -- an annoyed Noble Assassin

Death Stud the Gladiator -- Have you no respect for my gray hairs and my many scars?
Okay, I know that isn't a strong argument, but it's the first one that came to me. --
Kelrobard, Veteran Mercenary

Scrooge McDuck -- I have tried to give you the benefit of the doubt, but the truth
now requires airing.  You have bribed Merven Dree, unreliable half-orc that he is, to
give you frequent access to standbys as opponents.  This does not reflect well on
you, but we will leave that aside until we have dealt with Dree. -- Melbrook Hoels,
Constable of this City
