                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  SOLVEN needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Talk about hot teams!  
BASH BROS FICTION goes out, the very first time, and goes 3-0-0!  Like, what do you 
guys eat for breakfast?  MVP award for SHALLOW CHARACTERS?  BASH BROS FICTION's proud 
of him after beating FRIENDLY CONSTABLE and getting 13 points.  Talk about yer big 
time losers!  SKELETON got smashed by MESSY MARK, and lost 8 points!  And I was just 
getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome STEADY STUMPY.  
Aren't WEIRD STUDENTS proud.  (Oh, my.) I hear the top team insists all their 
warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  The warriors of WEIRD STUDENTS 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 SHADOW LANCERS' been avoiding WEIRD STUDENTS so much?  Or is it just 
that they're too scared?  Like, is MESSY MARK popular, or what?  He was challenged 
the most in all of SOLVEN!  He's got a 8-6-0, is that good?  People were asking me 
did QUEEN JEALOUSY REALLY challenge WRAITH?  (all right, maybe they didn't, but it 
sounded good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but WRAITH wants me to 
write about it since she defeated QUEEN JEALOUSY.  Satisfied?   
     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?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte
