                                      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 
MEZQUINO POLLO?  EL CAMINO:HOT SAUCE's proud of him after beating EMBEZZLING SCRIBE 
and getting 20 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  UNBELIEVABLE got smashed by 
KUNG-FU MASTER, and lost 26 points!  What a putz!  CALEAM CHOWDER 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 KURTAL DUCK's eye, as he took over 
Duelmastership?  And wasn't UNRELIABLE fit to be tied!  Is the Duelmaster really 
being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  The warriors of THE WILLBURYS 78 
must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something 
that I don't?  Is there some deep dark secret why EASTER FROM HELL's been avoiding 
THE WILLBURYS 78 so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed 
up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  LIN TIRIAN is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Caleam Chowder -- Surely you don't expect me to EAT that?  It's morally repulsive to
me. -- Kurtal Duck

     At least it isn't Duck a l'Aruak.

Untouchable -- Touche! -- Haroun Shaddar
P.S.  If the arenamistress hadn't stepped in, I might have done even more....

The Fratsfa Slave is fairly ridiculous.  Makes you wonder why the Fratsfans have such
a reputation as warriors. -- Urik Darkheart

Ambitious Guards should be put down, HARD, and I did my duty by this one. -- Sally
Sharpe

I dunno if I'd completely agree with Urik that the Fratsfa Slave is ridiculous, but
he's hardly someone to worry about. -- Tiger Jonsalmin
