                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in MORDANT!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Too bad, SWEORDMASTERS, but RUN 
DMC was just too good to be stopped.  What was the name of that team who got 3-1-0 
this turn for a total 157-146-15 you ask?  (Sure)  BOOZE's their name, and fighting's 
their game!  Like, BELLE BENNETT must be pretty gutsy!  She challenged the Duelmaster 
from SWEORDMASTERS.  Does this gal have a death wish or what!  This Duelmaster is 
like something else!  WYRTHA stopped BELLE BENNETT dead in hers tracks!  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.  SWEORDMASTERS was the most avoided team.  Is a 667-599-75 record 
really that scary?  I don't know what CHUCK'S PINUPS' been doing.  They certainly 
haven't been accepting many fights from SWEORDMASTERS, that's fer sher.  Can CHUCK'S 
PINUPS' TOBY WING be more popular than me?  She was challenged the most, but is that 
really the same?  For sure, I was holding my breath when I found out THE SAUCE 
challenged ELLENGAEST.  After all, haven't BOOZE and SWEORDMASTERS had a long 
standing duel in MORDANT?  It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but ELLENGAEST 
wants me to write about it since she was bested by THE SAUCE.  Satisfied?  SANDRA DEE 
must not be a good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  She challenged MASKED 
MURDERER II.  14 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I thought 
SANDRA DEE showed great skill and promise when she beat MASKED MURDERER II.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  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, with the wins being over standbys.  Of course.  It would be a trifle
embarrassing if I let myself think about it, so I don't.  There are much more
interesting things to think about, such as running down Lieutenant Worel with my
schoolbus.  I had the stop signs out, and he IGNORED them, so whatever happened to
him--I didn't stop find out--was no more than he deserved. -- Schoolbus Driver
P.S.  And the Low Roaders went one-two.  Ha!  Our win percent was better than THEIRS.
