                                      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...  MVP award for SPAWN'S 
BLUE BEER?  BAD SIGNS' proud of him after beating ROOK and getting 20 points.  Talk 
about yer major upsets!  LAKE EFFECT SNOW's match with FRATSFA SLAVE cost it a loss 
of 16 points!  The Duelmaster isn't going to stop just cause he's Number One!  OLOVOR 
PARIS knows this.  He was challenged by the Duelmaster.  Don't you think the 
Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think LUMP should let OLOVOR PARIS be Duelmaster for a 
while, without fighting about it.  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?  NONSUCH HOUSE was TELORINTHE's 
most avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  Is there some deep dark secret why 
BAD SIGNS' been avoiding NONSUCH HOUSE so much?  Or is it just that they're too 
scared?  Like, is ROOK popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of 
TELORINTHE!  He's got a 20-17-0, is that good?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys 
can do?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Up to eight fights, but one has a standby.  Still, any improvement is likely to be
good, and more gladiators on the sands IS good.  This place has been imploding. --
Petro Salm, for the Middle Way
P.S.  An oh-fer turn for us is NOT an improvement, however.  Listen, you guys, start
losing to us!  Yeah, I know, we could fight harder--IF we could get some strategy
changes.  I think Jorja's forgotten HOW.
