                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for COLLUSION COVE.  Too bad, THE BROTHERHOOD, 
but EX OBLIVIONE was just too good to be stopped.  MVP award for BB BULLY BOY?  RED 
DOG GANG's proud of him after beating AMBITIOUS GUARD and getting 9 points.  Talk 
about yer big time losers!  NIALL got smashed by DONOLD DOG, and lost 5 points!  What 
a putz!  PERFECT SNOTLING fights so hard to be Duelmaster, then quits fighting and 
loses the title.  No one said it was a genius...  And I was just getting used to the 
ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome MANAGER.  Aren't ANDORIA proud.  
(Oh, my.) 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.  MANAGER must not be a good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  
He TV challenged IMOTO-CHAN.  9 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what they tell 
me.) I thought MANAGER showed great skill and promise when he overcame IMOTO-CHAN.  
All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  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 know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Viki -- That's just LIKE a human, even if you are a golem.  Considering yourself
superior to dogs just because you can't hear as good and might well have no nose at
ALL for the good it does you.  Flaunting your opposable thumbs. -- Flummax

An Honest Merchant?  He is NOT.  He's a dog-kicker. -- BB Bully Boy

The Khalhums Dwarf is so hairy, even I, even Flummax or some other total mutt of a
dog, would be put off biting him.  This is really bad. -- Lassie

I thought the Visiting Orc wanted to play, but he hit me with a rolled up newspaper
instead!  Ow! -- Little Big Dog
