                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for VALAMANTIS.  One team deserves special 
mention 'cause they moved up 0 after going 4-1-1.  Keep it up, DEATH MOB!  MVP award 
for CAPTAIN SCOURGE?  DEATH MOB's proud of him after beating EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and 
getting 21 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  INVUR KREB got smashed by ANGRY 
DECKHAND, and lost 11 points!  The Duelmaster isn't going to stop just cause she's 
Number One!  GORMODUC IRN knows this.  He was challenged by the Duelmaster.  Don't 
you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think CHATTI should let GORMODUC IRN be 
Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  Who was the wiseguy that said 
VALAMANTIS' Duelmaster was paying for drinks at Drake's Lodge?  Don't look at me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  Can MIDDLE WAY 10's GORMODUC IRN 
be more popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that really the same?  
For sure, I was holding my breath when I found out FYRE SWORD  challenged EVANDER 
GILL.  After all, haven't DEATH MOB and MIDDLE WAY 10 had a long standing duel in 
VALAMANTIS?  It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but EVANDER GILL wants me to 
write about it since he bested FYRE SWORD.  Satisfied?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Like, who is this guy???  MASTIFF gets sent to the Dark Arena, battles 
BANDIT PRINCE, and returns to tell of it!!!  I bet THE BEARS manager is surprised!  
What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Mastiff -- A win is always welcome, and I thank you for it.  From my point of view,
that was a good fight. -- Gormoduc Irn

Chatti -- Thanks.  It'd please me to buy you dinner on the strength of this reprieve.
-- Invur Kreb

The Khalhums Dwarf?  Not that he IS a dwarf.  Oh, I see, I was about to ask why the

Dwarf didn't go home, and I guess he DID and some unfortunate local human has to do
standby for him and grow a beard and everything.  Tough. -- Evander Gill
P.S.  But no reason to take it out on me.

No Fear -- Is that supposed to apply to me or to you? -- Isombard Korl

Witless -- Surely not! -- Elen Gorvan

     If there were more personals, please accept our apologies.  Hal took a long
     weekend and is only now getting through the mail.  They'll show up next time.
