                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon COLLUSION 
COVE, for I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  CRAZY CREEPS posted a nice gain, to come 
in 2nd.  Everybody loves a winner...  Practice pays for TONTO, who pummelled TESS 
TOOBES, to pocket 13 points.  SUE CHURZ certainly had a baffled expression on hers 
face, after losing to MRS. ROBINSON and losing 9 points in the process!  BUSTED NUTS 
found out that COLLUSION COVE isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be 
Duelmaster here!  Word has it one team in COLLUSION COVE is using psychics to predict 
wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst 
the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of FUNKY FOLK, alone and unchallenged.  Like 
a pup with its tail between its legs, CRAZY CREEPS scurried away from FUNKY FOLK.  
Oh, the shame!  If challenges were horses, SHMEGMA could open up a fast food joint!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not a 
spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an 
unconscious stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in COLLUSION COVE is the highlight of my life.  Keep 
those sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- 
Novgorodny Vir

Challengers ENIGMA XXV 7871 of DEATH STUDS XII and Champions MAITRE BOULANGER of LA
BOULANGE, we salute you for your Tournament excellence. -- The Crazy Creeps Scribe
P.S.  Neither should have counted, since neither of the managers were at The Face.
Such weasels!

MGRWONTHE1STTOGS! of SUPERIOR FORCES and MALT-O-MEAL of CHILDHOOD TRAUMA TV'd upper
classes too, and only Managerr was really there to manage.  Since I don't like that
warrior name, and since Samwise wasn't there either, neither of those should count
also! -- The Crazy Creeps Scribe

That means there were ZERO TV's from Aradi.  Makes sense. -- The Crazy Creeps Scribe

Bye dee bye-bye, Enigmaronious!  Gollabolusa, gone, gone, gone.  Superificeronious!
-- The Creepster

Arenamaster Harkon -- TOGS in 2012?  At the rate of show of those FONZ (Freaky Oxen
Nurturing Zombies) there will NEVER be another TOGS.  Ah, the shame. -- The Crazy
Creeps Scribe

     Zombies nurture oxen?  I never would have guessed that one. -- Harkon

Sue?  Sue Churtz?!  You would do that to me?!  See if you ever find your missing
shoe! -- Fairy Godmother

Friendly Constable went to a fight.
On a day that was almost night.
He fought hard.
And sang like a bard.
When the loss was near in sight.
     Limerick

Constable Melbrook -- And how much do you want? -- Scrooge McDuck

     Attempting to bribe the police?  Shame on you! -- Constable Malbrook Hoels

It was nice to see all you FONZers at The Tempe Face again.  Well, er, a, all ONE of
you. -- The Crazy Creeps

Scrooge McDuck -- Member of the PRESS?  You crazy creep!  I'm an accountant, and
don't you forget it.  For you, I will even be an AUDITOR! -- Unbribable Scribe

Scrooge McDuck -- That has been marked down against you. -- Melbrook Hoels, Constable
of this City

Fairy Godmother -- I can hardly wait! -- Fratsfan Noble
P.S.  And blond, too, don't forget that.  Tall, blond, and handsome.

Funky Folk -- Those three were easy meat.  Give us a challenge next time. -- Jorge
Black Orc, speaking for all the Dark Arena Masters

Death Stud the Gladiator -- Oooh!  Aren't you the FIERCE one!  Think of me as your
secret admirer, you stud! -- the Virginal Gigolo, all a-twitter

Tess Toobes -- That's a kinsman of mine you're getting vicious with.  Not that he
doesn't deserve it, but there are appearances to be kept up, you know. -- Jorge Black
Orc

Limerick -- There are times when I wonder why I bother to do this.  You gladiators
don't seem to appreciate it. -- Melbrook Hoels, Constable of this City
