                                      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...  Too bad, PLAY BALL, but DUNGEON 
CELL was just too good to be stopped.  MVP award for HIGHWAY GAMBLER?  IT'S ALL OVER 
NOW's proud of him after beating UGLY WALT and getting 11 points.  Talk about yer 
major upsets!  ORRIN QUARRELS' match with RON SANTO cost him a loss of 8 points!  
What a putz!  BIRGITTE fights so hard to be Duelmaster, then quits fighting and loses 
the title.  No one said she was a genius...  And I was just getting used to the 
ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome BLACK DEATH.  Aren't DUNGEON CELL 
proud.  (Oh, my.) Who was the wiseguy that said KALTOS' Duelmaster was paying for 
drinks at The Victory Tavern?  Don't look at me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  Like, is ORRIN QUARRELS popular, or what?  He was 
challenged the most in all of KALTOS!  He's got a 2-5-0, is that good?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All KALTOS ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  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 gotta leave.  KALTOS is like such a dump, and you guys smell 
too much!  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte
