                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in JADE MOUNTAIN!  I still haven't told Mom I'm 
writing Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for DOWD?  
DARK TOADS' proud of him after beating TALK-TO-DEATH and getting 16 points.  What a 
putz!  SAMARIUM 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 SPIKE's eye, as he 
took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't MING-CHANG THE SLY fit to be tied!  Who was the 
wiseguy that said JADE MOUNTAIN's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Green Axe?  
Don't look at me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  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.  JADE MOUNTAIN is like such a dump, and you guys smell too 
much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

                                     PERSONAL ADS

All -- My final style to graduate Jade Mountain was the PR.  Anne makes for my last 
style to graduate from a single arena.  I remember it was but 15 months ago that I 
was called mad for saying I would achieve the feat.  Well, I am still being called 
mad, but now I am mad and have 10 styles graduated from the same arena.  --TigToad

All -- Anne's numbers 11-11-13-15-17-5-17 PR.  Good/Norm.  Anne's favorite weapon is 
the Long Spear and her favs are VL/MO.  She leaves us with skills of: 
9/26/23/23/21/6.  She learned over 2 skills per fight with her 15 wit and is +5 
attack.   She will be retiring.  --TigToad

Personals we would have written last time if we hadn't been too busy:

Samarium -- Of course somebody told me I could fight!  In fact, they told me I could 
fight better than Woody!  So there. -- Treenva Taral

Joyn Michael -- I will avoid you.  I'll go to the Isle, or maybe up a mountain to be 
a hermit, or somewhere not here. -- Tabatan
P.S.  Me a graduate!  It's hard to believe.

Prongs -- I hate those prodding prongs.  Take 'em elsewhere, bub. -- Arnal Redaxe

I hate lawyers. -- Volto Leeni

Current personals:

Samarium -- Even that loss doesn't take the gloss off my graduation. -- Tabatan

Prongs -- I hope you got to stick a marshmallow and it BITES you. -- Volto Leeni

Samoset -- (sigh)  I didn't need that. -- Treenva Taral

I would've liked the Dancer better if he'd been a she. -- Arnal Redaxe

TigToad -- Congratulations! -- Li Dan and the Sand Dancers

Samarium -- And to you, also. -- Li Dan and the Sand Dancers

ATTENTION ALL YOU ALLIANCE-TYPE PEOPLE:
For the purposes of tourney newsletter alliance listings (when I am able to do them),
you may only be listed in ONE alliance.  In other words, you have to choose!  If you
are a part of Englebert's Alliance and Englebert's Alliance is "part" of Ruthrauf's
Alliance, I will list you EITHER as part of Englebert's Alliance OR as part of
Ruthrauf's Alliance, NOT both.  The default would be the top-level alliance,
Ruthrauf's, in this example.  If you'd rather be listed separately, let me know and I
will do so, but that will be the only listing you get. -- The Saint, keeper of ever-
more-complicated lists

29 Jun 2005
The Company of Brothers (TCB) welcomes two new members to our alliance...Liam the
Goth and Buddy Lee.  We have no doubt that they will prove to be assets to our
alliance and the general dueling community. -- Baphomet, co-founder, T.C.B.
