     Ha!  Aunt!

                                    Tom-Tom Tora

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for AMEN-TEI.  What was the name of that team 
who got 4-1-1 this turn for a total 27-9-4 you ask?  (Sure)  THE SUN CULT's their 
name, and fighting's their game!  MVP award for MINERVA MIST?  THE SUN CULT's proud 
of her after beating AMBITIOUS GUARD and getting 13 points.  Talk about yer major 
upsets!  CIEZA DE LEON's match with LENNALGIRE cost him a loss of 2 points!  This 
Duelmaster is like something else!  TOM-TOM TORA stopped CLE dead in his tracks!  Who 
was the wiseguy that said AMEN-TEI's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Swinging 
Aardvark?  Don't look at me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  Like, is LENNALGIRE popular, or what?  She was 
challenged the most in all of AMEN-TEI!  She's got a 9-5-0, is that good?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All AMEN-TEI ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  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.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Udayana -- You'll get freckles if you don't watch out. -- M.T. Lane
P.S.  You notice how they said we were "equal in skill"?  Neat!  I didn't realize I
HAD any skill.

Airavata -- Good try, but no see-gar, not that anyone would really WANT a see-gar. --
Lennalgire

And M. Chardinee.  Oh, well. -- Valnakaur

Ed. -- Some places, they're ALWAYS in season.  Such as along I-10 between Deming and
Lordsburg. -- Jorja
P.S.  If you can believe the signs.

     It's a strange place to find them, though I suppose it's a crop not requiring
     much water. -- Ed.
