                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for TELORINTHE.  Too bad, BAD SIGNS, but 
OLDIES was just too good to be stopped.  One team deserves special mention 'cause 
they moved up 0 after going 4-1-0.  Keep it up, NONSUCH HOUSE!  MVP award for ORGAN 
GRINDER?  CHAPEL OF THE GHOULS' proud of him after beating THE USEROUS MERCHANT and 
getting 21 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  OUT FOR A DUCK's match with 
CORNELIUS cost it a loss of 13 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being 
unfair?  I think STEEL MUSE should let MELANIE OBERN 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.  OLDIES was the most avoided team.  Is a 278-135-9 record really 
that scary?  I don't know what CHAPEL OF THE GHOULS' been doing.  They certainly 
haven't been accepting many fights from OLDIES, that's fer sher.  Like, is OLOVOR 
PARIS popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of TELORINTHE!  He's got a 
6-7-2, is that good?  For sure, I was holding my breath when I found out CUSTODIAN 
challenged LUMP.  After all, haven't OLDIES and BAD SIGNS had a long standing duel in 
TELORINTHE?  It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but LUMP wants me to write 
about it since he was defeated by CUSTODIAN.  Satisfied?   
     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.  TELORINTHE is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Really, Melanie!  Come on, now.  I am a poor lowly janitor trying to work my way to
The Big Time, and you put me down.  Just because of my profession?  Or because I am

Rirorni?  Humpff!  I would appreciate if you could drop your prejudices and be a
little kinder in the future. -- Custodian (slowly recovering from his thrashing by
Melanie Obern)

Kellumbo's Inits -- I am not sure at all that was sport.  Is pummelling a sport?  I
despise you pummellers! -- Sport

Olovar Paris -- I was lucky, lucky.  I musta had archangels on my side. -- St
Michael's

Corpse Spitter -- What an ugly thought and name.  Take that for all godfaring people
everywhere! -- Altar Boy (interpreted from Latin by the Oldies Publicist)

Here I come, ready or not! -- Cannelton (Coach's newest and finest, which is not so
much as there is little fine on The Oldies Team)

Congrats to Steel Muse, Telorinthe's top dog.  Salute. -- Coach and The Oldies

St. Michael's -- No. -- Tamarind Urlik

Custodian -- Clean up your own messes first!  And do NOT leave that bucket of mop
water in the middle of the floor.  Someone could trip and get hurt. -- Melanie Obern

Construction Zone -- How about constructing some skills for me if we meet again? --
Petro Salm
P.S.  It's embarrassing to know that you have NO hidden tourney fights, you're just
that much better than me.

St. Michael's -- Ah, I see that Tamarind was RIGHT.  You're a nasty, superior sort of
fellow. -- Olovor Paris

Napless Toddler -- Ah, but I was able to snatch a short nap before the fight. --
Tamarind Urlik

Sin Eater -- Maybe with catsup? -- Terena Verek
