                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in AMEN-TEI!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for LENNALGIRE?  
WAYFARERS' proud of her after beating VIRGINAL CONCUBINE and getting 21 points.  Talk 
about yer major upsets!  VALNAKAUR's match with VIRGINAL CONCUBINE cost him a loss of 
12 points!  What a putz!  NO WAY! 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 LENNALGIRE's eye, as she took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't VIRGINAL CONCUBINE 
fit to be tied!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't 
ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Hey you guys, don't you think your 
families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     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.  AMEN-TEI is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

The Noble Assassin.  I really don't like that guy, and it gave me great pleasure to
knock him down and jump on him.  Well, I didn't actually JUMP, the Arenamaster would
have stopped that (what a softie!), but I kicked him a little.  Assassins are just
what we don't need more of around here or ANYWHERE, you know?  I don't care what
people say about assassins being so cool, they kill people for money.  How is this
good? -- Valnakaur

Why should a Peasant be Happy?  It seems WRONG.  So I arranged things to make him
less happy.  Just in the short term, I understand the standbys get a great insurance
package and a guaranteed stipend whether they win or not, but still.  It seemed to me
to be a matter of principle. -- Lennalgire

JUST what I needed, Lenna stirring up the Peasant and making him angry.  This did NOT
improve my day, and I'm going to make sure that Lenna understands this. -- M.T. Lane

Trustworthy Scribe?  Who trusts him?  Why, and with what?  He's an elf, after all,
and you know what THEY are like. -- Carron Rhodes

I got nothing against the "Trustworthy" Scribe as such, even though when they use a
name like that, you know not to trust 'em.  It's like used horse dealers that call
themselves Honest John.  I don't even have anything against him being a sneaky,
underhanded elf, you know?  I just didn't like him.  So I creamed him.  Big deal. --
Hyram Carter

Wow, SIX fights this time!  Of course we, the Wayfarers, fought nothing but standbys
(going four and one against them), but what the heck, at least the title match had
managed warriors in it. -- Jorja, Wayfarers
