                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out COLLUSION COVE 
to see what's new.  Too bad, EX OBLIVIONE, but THE BROTHERHOOD was just too good to 
be stopped.  I don't wanna hurt anybody's feelings or anything, but PHILANTHROPISTS 
really goofed with their 0-0-0.  THE BROTHERHOOD like really fought hard to move up 
to 1st from 4th.  Way to go!  MVP award for ECFOIMS?  CLNGE's proud of her after 
beating READY EDDIE and getting 16 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  READY 
EDDIE got smashed by ECFOIMS, and lost 17 points!  This Duelmaster is like something 
else!  IMOTO-CHAN stopped LITTLE BIG DOG dead in his tracks!  I hear the top team 
insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for 
PR photos.   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  Can THE 
BROTHERHOOD's SAI JIN be more popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is 
that really the same?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  AHKEEM really fought hard against VLADIMIR YORGA.  That'll teach EX 
OBLIVIONE not to go and kill any of THE BROTHERHOOD's guys again, huh!  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.  Its 
been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Nightwind -- Definitely the right time to howl!  We could sing together. -- Little
Big Dog

Maximillian Ki -- Listen, how am I supposed to heal if you hit me there?  Even a dog
can't lick his own neck, and that's what it takes to heal, everyone knows that. --
Ready Eddie

Kismet -- I knew a dog named that once.  He was an afghan hound, and never had a good
hair day. -- BB Bully Boy

The Trustworthy Scribe came at me with a rolled up piece of paper, so of course I bit
him.  I had to be proactive there. -- Garm

The Friendly Constable tried to feed me chocolate, so he can't have been a true
friend.  I mean, everyone knows that chocolate isn't good for dogs. -- Hush Puppy

Niall -- I like books to chew on sometimes. -- Hush Puppy
P.S.  The ones with handmade paper and leather covers are best.

Enigma -- Thank you, though "mastery" may be going to far. -- Spot

Vladimir Yorga -- I'm not sure that I would mistake you for a vampire, but that thing
that they do to blood... that does describe you. -- Kismet

Vladimir Yorga -- I will get you for Estraya. -- Akheem

Ready Eddie -- I'll give you the name of a good weaponsmith. -- Maximillian Ki

9 February 10
All -- I know you all thought the old Wiz that is Fiz went off to die somewhere.
Well, I didn't.  Now I'm back to befuddle and frustrate you with my senseless
ramblings.  I look forward to reconnecting with all my old friends and enemies alike.
-- Fizban the Famous
