                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in TELORINTHE!  I still haven't told Mom I'm 
writing Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  The guys at BLACK 
LIGHTNING II like really pulled together to get a 3-2-0 this turn, moving up by 3.  
Cut this out and put it in your scrapbooks, THE MYRMIDONS!  'Cause they got 4-1-0 and 
moved up to 4th!  MVP award for SLIGHT ADJUSTMENT?  BLACK LIGHTNING II's proud of him 
after beating ERIC and getting 19 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  CUSTODIAN's 
match with ROID FLOYD cost him a loss of 15 points!  CRACKER JACKS thinks his 13-11-1 
and studly character is good enough to face up to the Duelmaster.  Any bets?  Don't 
you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think VODI should let CRACKER JACKS be 
Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  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.  The warriors of OLLIS HEROES must be getting lonely.  They were the 
most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  Hhmph!  What kind of 
warriors are OLDIES?  OLLIS HEROES, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get 
them to accept an invitation!  Can BLACK LIGHTNING II's ALMENDRAS be more popular 
than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that really the same?   
     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.  TELORINTHE is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Vodi of Ollis Heroes -- Congratulations to a great Lord Protector and Duelmaster. --
Coach and The Oldies

Cult Member -- The win ges to the better cult, because I just plain smacked you, Bud.
-- Circle K

Rosana Sabel -- I had fun scrounging for merit badges.  I got more than you, Babe! --
Life Scout

Faber Caster -- I won!  I think you just need to get the lead out! -- Custodian

Melanie -- I decided to just take my tricks and run.  (Bridge tricks, all you
sillies!) -- Contract Bridge

Yoda -- Nice challenge.  It was close.  But I pulled the surprise out of the box. --
Cracker Jacks

Health.  Humility.  Honor. -- Coach

I'm back to join the fun. -- Slugbait

     And we're glad to see you.

Our congratulations to Vodi. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

Vodi -- That was exhausting.  Good thing I lost in the end; I wouldn't have had the
energy to do a column, and Jorja tends to insist about that. -- Sam Tall

Indiana Jones -- Ah, was it the snakes painted on my armor? -- Moris Nahr

Contract Bridge -- I can't stand that legal stuff.  All that red tape is just
maddening. -- Melanie Obern

Eric -- Bah.  Your manager wears pink--  Oh, I guess I'm not supposed to say that
here.  Well, then, just Bah! -- Petro Salm

Life Scout -- Actually, I'm almost impressed with myself.  Given the difference in
our experience, I held on for three minutes, and the steward said your win was due to
luck?  I must be getting better. -- Rosana Sabel
