                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  DAL SHANG needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for FIRE 
OPAL?  TOLBIN'S GEMS' proud of her after beating SERGEANT 7 and getting 19 points.  
Talk about yer big time losers!  SERGEANT 7 got smashed by FIRE OPAL, and lost 16 
points!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  KALDAN TEN KARAN stopped DRIVING A 
ROLLS dead in his tracks!  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.  MEDAL OF HONOR C11 was DAL SHANG's most avoided team.  Is there 
some award for that?  Is there some deep dark secret why BASH BROS EVANGELIST's been 
avoiding MEDAL OF HONOR C11 so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Can 
MEDAL OF HONOR C11's SERGEANT 7 be more popular than me?  He was challenged the most, 
but is that really the same?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All DAL SHANG ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to 
hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  DAL SHANG is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  I 
had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Driving a Rolls -- Sorry, but I'm not going to THROW a fight for you.  I need to get
out of here, too.  Gladiators who linger in the high ranks have an unnerving tendency
to die just when graduation begins to seem possible. -- Kaldan ten Karan

Malachite -- There was no reason to throw ROCKS at me, you know. -- Gorban ten Skora

A wimpy standby is always welcome. -- An Yee

Matthew Hale -- I already HAD two losses, I did NOT need a third. -- Norben the
Lesser

Sergeant 1 -- It's a curse of some kind, isn't it? -- Karanza the Wild

Sadly, on this great Christmas morning, it appears that the Evangelists have been
invaded by criminals.  Hopefully Assur will clean this place up.  Regardless, the
message of hope remains the same and today, we celebrate the night that a savior was
born. -- Driving a Rolls
