                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in DAL SHANG!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Like, TOLBIN'S GEMS had to be so 
embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by MEDAL OF HONOR C11!  Way to go MEDAL 
OF HONOR C11!  MVP award for STAR RUBY?  TOLBIN'S GEMS' proud of her after beating 
DENGAN THE TRADER and getting 16 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  SERGEANT 
10 got smashed by OLTIMAL THE LAME, and lost 8 points!  What a putz!  CAUSEY 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 LORAND TEN SORN's eye, as he took over 
Duelmastership?  And wasn't DRIVING A ROLLS fit to be tied!  Who was the wiseguy that 
said DAL SHANG's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Blazing Unicorn?  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.  THE CAUSEY WAY was the most avoided team.  Is a 9-6-1 record really 
that scary?  Is there some deep dark secret why BASH BROS EVANGELIST's been avoiding 
THE CAUSEY WAY so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Like, is LORAND TEN 
SORN popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of DAL SHANG!  He's got a 
29-20-1, is that good?  See if I ever talk to NOCALLLISTEXEMPTION again!  KALDAN TEN 
KARAN was so low when He challenged he.  Hhmph!  I was sorry to see such an unfair 
"fight" in DAL SHANG.  NOCALLLISTEXEMPTION got 8 points after beating KALDAN TEN 
KARAN, 17 points below him.  Ooh!  Did DRIVING A ROLLS really know what he was doing 
when he challenged LORAND TEN SORN?  A 11-34-1 speaks volumes.  (Zontoni said that.  
I don't know what it means.) DRIVING A ROLLS lost to LORAND TEN SORN, but he got 1 
points.  LORAND TEN SORN won, and got 5 points.  I don't get it.  SFC 3 is being 
unfair.  He's challenged down 20 against AN YEE.  I don't know why they let this 
stuff go on.  (I'd better shut up) SFC 3 beat AN YEE.  No surprise about that.  
Really I'm not surprised SFC 3 would do such a scummy thing, either.   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  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 know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Kaldan -- Thanks again for taking my call.  You must have some interest in God since
you keep letting me talk to you! -- NoCallListExemption

Got the stand in, but my evangelist driving is just that bad.  How sad! -- Assur

Norvan -- That is what avoids are for.  To prevent a match up against the nasty
tourney babe. -- Driving a Rolls

Kaldan -- That is a good idea.  Then I can have my chauffeur drive me in a rolls and
I can ride around planning my next victory. -- Driving a Rolls

Causey -- Our thanks for the warning, but Jorja seldom goes so far as to issue a
challenge at all. -- the Sand Dancers

Evangelists -- Yeah, it's the pits.  But it was even worse for a colleague over in
Jade Mountain who died at 12-91. -- Ghost of Norvan

Driving a Rolls -- Perhaps you should get OUT of the chariot and run beside the road
a little? -- Kaldan ten Karan

NoCallListExemption -- I knew I should've turned off the ringer. -- Kaldan ten Karan

Malachite -- What else can you expect from a GREEN stone? -- Embron the Great

Causey -- I was our best chance for a bloodfeud, and you can see how well that
worked. -- Lorand ten Sorn

Fire Opal -- Ouch!  You are one hot lady! -- Gorban ten Skora

Sergeant 8 -- That was not the way I hoped to begin, but I shall improve. -- An Yee
