                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in VALAMANTIS!  I still haven't told Mom I'm 
writing Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  LEGION OF LEGEND like 
really fought hard to move up to 5th from 8th.  Way to go!  MVP award for DONETTA 
FALDOUR?  MIDDLE WAY 10's proud of her after beating ORANGE and getting 19 points.  
Talk about yer major upsets!  ORANGE's match with DONETTA FALDOUR cost him a loss of 
19 points!  What a putz!  ZEUS fights so hard to be Duelmaster, then quits fighting 
and loses the title.  No one said he was a genius...  Was that a tear I saw in ERFIN 
GORAM's eye, as he took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't DARTH NIKILUS fit to be 
tied!  Who was the wiseguy that said VALAMANTIS' Duelmaster was paying for drinks at 
Doom's Dome?  Don't look at me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  The warriors of RANDOM SITH 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 COLORS?  RANDOM SITH, an easy team to 
beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  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'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  Remember 
you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Zeus -- Good gods!  No one could expect me to defeat you!  I figure I was doing
really well simply to SURVIVE that match, and my thanks for the generous skills. --
Erfin Goram

It's easy to see why the Assassin was caught and Convicted.  He's...inept.  Well,
perhaps I mis-speak.  As a gladiator, he's inept.  As an assassin, despite his
capture and conviction, he MIGHT be adequate.  Not that I care. -- Bali Darras

Darth Scion -- Could I get away with saying that I didn't hit you hard because you're
so small I kept thinking of you as a child?  No, I suppose not.  Still, it's probably
the best excuse I'm going to find, so I'll take it. -- Donetta Faldour

Darth Bane -- Gods, midgets everywhere we look! -- Gabrella Imbro

Huma -- Thanks!  I really needed that win.  Not that I'd get sent to the Dark Arena
or anything instantly terminal, but I'd just sink steadily into a slough of despond,
and those sloughs of despond are very hard to swim out of. -- Gormoduc Irn
