                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for JURINE.  What was the name of that team 
who got 4-1-0 this turn for a total 164-157-3 you ask?  (Sure)  MIDDLE WAY 16's their 
name, and fighting's their game!  MVP award for VONNER WESS?  MIDDLE WAY 16's proud 
of him after beating CAPTURED ORC and getting 9 points.  Talk about yer major upsets! 
COUNTER OFFER's match with BARLO CHELLS cost him a loss of 2 points!  Don't you think 
the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think FALL PRINCESS should let XAVAN YOLE be 
Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  Who was the wiseguy that said 
JURINE's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Warty Toad?  Don't look at me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  ALANIS was JURINE's most avoided team.  Is there some award for 
that?  Is there some deep dark secret why VIKING LINGO's been avoiding ALANIS so 
much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys 
can do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  JURINE is like such a dump, and you guys smell 
too much!  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Fall Princess -- Ah, um.  Well, you know, what could I do?  I couldn't go hitting a
pricness! -- Cham Dugan
P.S.  And besides, I didn't want to have to write something by way of a column.

Dragon Harvest -- I'm thinking a dragon around here might not be ALL bad.  It's
darned cold. -- Xavan Yole

Falling Leaf -- Very graceful.  You should be a woman, though. -- Vonner Wess
P.S.  Then I'd ask you out for dinner, but I'm not asking some GUY.

A Cult Member?  What do I want with a Cult Member.  He isn't at all friendly. --
Wallis Yent

Remind me not to believe any Userous Merchant who tells me that "the payments will be
easy." -- Barlo Chells

Our congratulations to Fall Princess. -- Jorja and the Middle Way
