                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  MORYA needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  I don't wanna hurt 
anybody's feelings or anything, but SEA DOGS really goofed with their 0-2-0.  DIZNEE 
like really fought hard to move up to 4th from 8th.  Way to go!  What was the name of 
that team who got 4-1-3 this turn for a total 13-21-3 you ask?  (Sure)  THE RAMBLERS' 
their name, and fighting's their game!  MVP award for BOOMERANG?  FORCE OF FIVE's 
proud of him after beating WHITE DEVIL and getting 26 points.  Talk about yer big 
time losers!  WAKKO got smashed by HEADACHE, and lost 20 points!  SABRETOOTH thinks 
his 16-13-2 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 THE HIEROPHANT should 
let SABRETOOTH be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  Is the 
Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  FORCE OF FIVE 
was the most avoided team.  Is a 78-66-6 record really that scary?  Hhmph!  What kind 
of warriors are BIG LAKE PURE?  FORCE OF FIVE, an easy team to beat if I ever saw 
one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  Can FORCE OF FIVE's PORCUPINE be more 
popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that really the same?  For sure, 
I was holding my breath when I found out SLAPPY SQUIRREL  challenged GIDREK THUMBTOE. 
After all, haven't THE ANIMANIACS and BIG LAKE PURE had a long standing duel in 
MORYA?  It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but GIDREK THUMBTOE wants me to 
write about it since he was overcame by SLAPPY SQUIRREL.  Satisfied?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  What a bunch of heartless!  I couldn't believe how many people were 
snickering when BOOMERANG killed WHITE DEVIL.  So he had a 11-16-1, that's no excuse! 
Like was that some Bloodfeud, or what?  (SHERE KHAN vs. JACK TAR, that is.) 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.  MORYA is like such a dump, and you guys smell 
too much!  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

                          MAKING YOUR CHALLENGES GO THROUGH

     First, you need to be sure you are making your challenges correctly.
     1.  Are you writing down the warrior I.D. number of the warrior you want to 
challenge?
     2.  Is your handwriting clear?
     3.  Is the warrior you are challenging within range of your warrior?  Warriors 
can challenge within their own class and the next higher class, plus the "Challenger" 
classes can also challenge the next lower class.  So, an Adept can challenge Adepts 
and Challenger Adepts.  A Challenger Adept can challenge Adepts, Challenger Adepts, 
and Champions.  (Try not to challenge down, though.  Besides being unsportsmanlike and 
making everyone mad, it isn't advantageous to your warriors.  They need to fight more 
experienced warriors so they will learn.)
     4.  Are your warriors eligible to make challenges?  If they didn't fight within 
the last two turns, then they can't challenge.
     5.  Are the warriors they want to fight eligible to receive challenges?  If they 
didn't fight within the last two turns, then they can't be challenged.

     Next, adjust your choices for the maximum likelihood of getting your challenges.  
There are several things that will help:
     1.  Have each of your warriors challenge two different opponents from two 
different teams.  That way, if the first opponent's team doesn't fight that turn, you 
still might get your second challenge.
     2.  Use your avoids.  Have each warrior avoid the teams of whoever you think 
might be likely to challenge him.  If you can get out of being challenged, that 
increases your chance of getting your own challenge through.
     3.  Don't challenge warriors who didn't fight last turn.  The odds are higher 
that they won't be fighting this turn.
     4.  Don't challenge warriors who might be involved in a bloodfeud (either as the 
killers, or the avengers).  A bloodfeud challenge has priority over all other 
challenges.
     5.  Don't challenge Tournament Victors.  A TV challenge has priority over all 
other challenges except bloodfeuds.  You'll need to do a little research in back 
issues of the newsletter to find out who the TVs are.
     6.  Don't challenge warriors who you know are going to challenge someone else, or 
are going to get challenged by someone else.  Your challenge has a better chance of 
getting through if it is the only challenge to that particular warrior.
     7.  Don't challenge the "easy pickings."  That is, warriors above you who have 
way too few fights or very bad records for where they are ranked.  They will tend to 
get challenged a lot.
     8.  Don't challenge warriors who are likely to be avoiding your team.  This 
includes any warrior your team fought within the last two turns.
     Well, it sounds like I've eliminated just about everybody, doesn't it?  Of course 
you can challenge opponents who fit into one or more of those categories; just try to 
find ones who don't.  Your idea candidate for a challenge is:  A warrior ranked 
somewhat above your warrior in the same class, or in the next higher class, with a few 
more fights than your warrior, and a winning record, who isn't a TV and isn't 
currently at war with anyone.
     I hope this will be of some help to you.
