                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in KALTOS!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Like, THE MIDDLE WAY 5 had to be 
so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by BLOOD SUCKERS!  Way to go BLOOD 
SUCKERS!  MVP award for KELLY?  CASSEY'S CREW's proud of her after beating IRVINA 
KORL and getting 20 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  IRVINA KORL got smashed 
by KELLY, and lost 19 points!  Our last turn's Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to 
VENOMOUS CONCUBINE, and CREDIT CARD has made the way for a new Duelmaster!  KELLY of 
CASSEY'S CREW takes CREDIT CARD's place.  (But seriously, who could ever take the 
place of CREDIT CARD?  Oh, all right.) Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to 
his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  BLOOD SUCKERS was the most avoided team.  Is a 
19-12-1 record really that scary?  Is there some deep dark secret why CASSEY'S CREW's 
been avoiding BLOOD SUCKERS so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Can THE 
MIDDLE WAY 5's IRVINA KORL be more popular than me?  She was challenged the most, but 
is that really the same?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Hey you guys, don't you think your 
families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     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.  I had 
a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Ashley -- Seriously, you needed that.  You go through Basic undefeated, your manager
gets weird ideas of invincibility, and then you hit the Isle and lose fights, and he
gets pissed.  I've heard of some gladiators who went, oh, 17-0 in Basic, flubbed a
tourney, and were sent to the Dark Arena when they came back.  I'm saving you from
that horrid fate.  Really, quite selfless of me; I'm impressed. -- Irvina

Mother-in-Law -- Type-casting, though you aren't far from the center-line of the
type, I will admit.  The way you sucked out those skills was... painful. -- Pendru
Rost

Mosquito -- Damn, I forgot my ddt. -- Lulia Nim

Oskan Steeltooth, Moonlighter for the Osksi Noble -- If I were in your shoes, I think

I'd rather sweep streets or bag groceries.  Maybe even scrub floors. -- Leora Noeval
P.S.  Isn't it hard to fight in those elevator shoes?  Which is why I wouldn't BE in
your shoes if I could possibly avoid it.

Oh-John, Beggar at Small -- What happened, did you run afoul of the Beggars' Guild?
I mean, you are SOOO not suited for this kind of thing, for the arena. -- Gidget Imer

Darn, we were hoping for "top team on the move," so we could get into a new
guildhouse.  This one is, um, not well suited to winter weather. -- the Middle Way
