                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in LIN TIRIAN!  I still haven't told Mom I'm 
writing Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Like, ROCK-ETTS II had 
to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by PBA!  Way to go PBA!  What 
was the name of that team who got 3-1-0 this turn for a total 495-601-18 you ask?  
(Sure)  SAND DANCERS' their name, and fighting's their game!  MVP award for WALLIS?  
SAND DANCERS' proud of him after beating TOE PAL and getting 18 points.  Talk about 
yer big time losers!  TOE PAL got smashed by WALLIS, and lost 14 points!  Oh, wow, 
like the Duelmaster must be the most popular gal in all LIN TIRIAN.  She got the most 
challenges.  (But what about proposals?) SPLIT thinks hers 19-11-0 and studly 
character is good enough to face up to the Duelmaster.  Any bets?  And I was just 
getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome SPLIT.  Aren't 
PBA proud.  (Oh, my.) Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  
Don't ask me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  I'm not so sure PROOKIE knew all the facts when she challenged 
MOONSTONE of ROCK-ETTS II.  I saw PROOKIE stumbling and dribbling at The Lost Hope 
Inn last week...  Do you think PROOKIE knew something before she challenged 
MOONSTONE?  She got a win and 12 points.  What will the gal do next?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All LIN TIRIAN 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.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

An Announcement Concerning the Brotherhood of the Blade Alliance:
     I have chosen to withdraw my membership from the Brotherhood of the Blade
alliance.  The years I have spent in the alliance have been the best of my DM career.
I leave the alliance with many great friends and will always remain close to my
former brethren.
     The Brotherhood of the Blade will not skip a beat without my membership.  It
remains in very capable hands and its roster is among the strongest in the game.
With the return on some of its founding members to DM, I know the BOB will continue
to grow in strength and prestige in the years to come. -- The Sandman
