                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for DAL SHANG.  MVP award for SERGEANT 3?  
MEDAL OF HONOR C11's proud of him after beating KARANZA THE WILD and getting 16 
points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  JACK TRIPPER's match with MORENN cost him a 
loss of 9 points!  What a putz!  ABITA fights so hard to be Duelmaster, then quits 
fighting and loses the title.  No one said it was a genius...  And I was just getting 
used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome APACHE FOG.  Aren't 
SUPERNATURAL proud.  (Oh, my.) Who was the wiseguy that said DAL SHANG's Duelmaster 
was paying for drinks at The Blazing Unicorn?  Don't look at me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  POSSE was the most avoided team.  
Is a 213-203-17 record really that scary?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are LAUGH 
TRACK LORDS?  POSSE, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept 
an invitation!  Can SAND DANCERS' KO THE AVERAGE 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.  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

An oh-fer, and Gorban dead after two years!  Talk about rotten luck.  We warned him
not to go out on a foggy evening, but did he listen?  No, he said that fishermen
didn't mind a little fog.  Truly rotten luck for him. -- An Yee
P.S.  And he didn't even get a fish out of it.
