                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  LAPUR needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Oh, wow, like the 
Duelmaster must be the most popular guy in all LAPUR.  He got the most challenges.  
(But what about proposals?) Like, AN ARM AND A KEG must be pretty gutsy!  He 
challenged the Duelmaster from BLACK SAMURAI.  Does this guy have a death wish or 
what!  Was that a tear I saw in AN ARM AND A KEG's eye, as he took over 
Duelmastership?  And wasn't RISUI fit to be tied!  I hear the top team insists all 
their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  LIVING DEAD 
was LAPUR's most avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  Hhmph!  What kind of 
warriors are ALMOST EXACTLY?  LIVING DEAD, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, 
can't get them to accept an invitation!  People were asking me did BRAVO REALLY 
challenge A GRAIN OF ASSAULT?  (all right, maybe they didn't, but it sounded good!) 
It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but A GRAIN OF ASSAULT wants me to write 
about it since he was subdued by BRAVO.  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.  How cruel!  RED AVENGERS heartlessly sent 
hers to DEE THE BLADE certain fate in the Dark Arena.  Is a 4-9-0 bad or something?  
What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     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.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Two-three, better than we expected, and they weren't even standbys we defeated. -- 
Sureshot

Deadly -- I have decisively concluded and take the initiative to tell you that I don't 
need you. -- Winterbark
P.S.  Besides, the season has turned against me.

Nightstalker -- It doesn't even help to read the fight in daylight. -- Log-sticker

A Grain of Assault -- I peppered you, and also cut the mustard. -- Sureshot

Just the Hacks -- Would it help if I got Joe Friday to tackle you? -- Mudd

Boneclaw -- Looks like you've got a little problem there. -- Mudslinger

Sneaky Pete -- *I* did?  Looked to ME like it was your manager to blame
there. -- Mudslinger

All -- Beware Chetam, the odd job man for the arena.  He is still trying to get me to 
pay him off to "survive the Dark Arena."  And I didn't GO to the Dark Arena.  I think 
he is seriously nuts, but it's got to where I don't dare walk alone.  Watch OUT for 
this guy. -- Winterbark
P.S.  I wonder if he's in some PLOT beyond his own crazy greed, you know?

Winter Bark -- Yes, Deadly... -- Really Deadly
