                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  COLLUSION COVE needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Too bad, THE 
BROTHERHOOD, but THE DISCIPLES was just too good to be stopped.  MVP award for 
SHADOWFIRE?  TWILIGHT BRIGADE's proud of him after beating MAXIMILLIAN KI and getting 
17 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  MAXIMILLIAN KI's match with SHADOWFIRE cost 
him a loss of 12 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 
BB BULLY BOY.  Aren't RED DOG GANG proud.  (Oh, my.) I hear the top team insists all 
their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  What a bummer deal for ECFOIMS!  She just barely was getting hers 
"fighter feet" but got kill by KISMET of THE BROTHERHOOD!  Those're the breaks, I 
guess.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  COLLUSION COVE is like such a dump, and you guys smell too 
much!  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Sai Jin -- I'm always up to play when someone asks, but it seems, I dunno, almost...
cat-like when things are so unequal. -- BB Bully Boy

Vladimir Yorga -- You taste funny.  Like... goulash, maybe?  You've been eating the
wrong spices, is what I think. -- Garm

Kismet -- Jorja says--I wouldn't know--that you should consider dropping the off-hand
weapon.  Before I hit you there, I think she means. -- Hush Puppy
P.S.  I don't mind if you carry two.  It means your hands are busy and you can't pull
out the rolled-up newspaper and whap me on the nose.

Ecfoims -- Garm was wrong.  I think.  I mean, okay, maybe you were chewy two weeks
ago, but now, you just blunt my teeth.  I hate that, it makes my head ache. -- Ready
Eddie
