                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  JURINE needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Like, MIDDLE WAY 16 
had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by AUTUMN SAGA!  Way to go 
AUTUMN SAGA!  MVP award for HEADING SOUTH?  AUTUMN SAGA's proud of him after beating 
EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and getting 11 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  XAVAN YOLE 
got smashed by VETERAN MERCENARY, and lost 4 points!  And I was just getting used to 
the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome ZOE ALDEN.  Aren't MIDDLE WAY 16 
proud.  (Oh, my.) Who was the wiseguy that said JURINE's Duelmaster was paying for 
drinks at The Welcome Wench?  Don't look at me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  The warriors of 071406W must be 
getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I 
don't?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are AUTUMN SAGA?  071406W, an easy team to beat 
if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  Like, is CHAM DUGAN 
popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of JURINE!  He's got a 13-16-0, 
is that good?  See if I ever talk to DECAY again!  TAKOLE URM was so low when He 
challenged he.  Hhmph!  Is this how AUTUMN SAGA advances, by having their members 
(DECAY) fight people that are really below them (TAKOLE URM)?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, 
that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  JURINE is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  I 
had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Greetings All -- This is Vincent Michaels, "the Rake", mgr. of the Stormbringers out
of DM 33 Niatoli Island, back after a relatively long layoff.  I come back to my
arena to find only two other teams there.  Terrible!  I'm calling on all you managers
out there who have inactive teams in Niatoli to put them back in the game.  Also,
anyone else who wants to come check out our little island are welcome.  Good food and
a lot of good gambling, and you will have a chance to smack around Gen. GirlPants and
his band of Ravaged Queens.  Great fun.  Come one, come all!
