                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  LIN TIRIAN needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for 
DEELAR MARION?  SAND DANCERS' proud of him after beating VENEMOUS CONCUBINE and 
getting 17 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  CHELBAGHEERA's match with NIOBE 
NEPENTHE cost her a loss of 2 points!  Was that a tear I saw in MIRIAL ADAMANT's eye, 
as she took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't ORGULLO DIFAMAR fit to be tied!  I hear 
the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic 
fighters for PR photos.   
     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.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  LIN TIRIAN is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Tyler Durden -- I really, really did NOT need that to happen.  Reincarnation is such
a messy process. -- Shana the Knife

Niobe Nepenthe -- The "floods of tears" thing doesn't work for me, okay?  I've been
down that road. -- Deelar Marion, hard-hearted

Janil Martos -- I'd've had you if I hadn't been laughing so hard.  I mean, the beard!
I know you're not a dwarf, you're too tall.  So the beard has to be some kind of
disguise, right?  But it isn't a good one.  Try a really severe diet to reduce your
height, maybe. -- Chelbagheera

Our congratulations to Orgullo Difamar.  Go, man, go! -- Jorja and the Sand Dancers
