                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out ARKERS to see 
what's new.  Like, Z GLADIATORZ had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 
spot by SMITHSONIAN!  Way to go SMITHSONIAN!  MVP award for ANITA KILL?  YOU PAY I 
SLAY's proud of her after beating ZORK and getting 25 points.  Talk about yer major 
upsets!  ZORK's match with ANITA KILL cost him a loss of 19 points!  Oh, wow, like 
the Duelmaster must be the most popular gal in all ARKERS.  She got the most 
challenges.  (But what about proposals?) The Duelmaster isn't going to stop just 
cause she's Number One!  KERBIN NOTTS knows this.  He was challenged by the 
Duelmaster.  This Duelmaster is like something else!  ZITHER stopped KERBIN NOTTS 
dead in his tracks!  I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours 
sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  YOU PAY I SLAY was ARKERS' most avoided team.  Is 
there some award for that?  I don't know what SMITHSONIAN's been doing.  They 
certainly haven't been accepting many fights from YOU PAY I SLAY, that's fer sher.  
I'm not so sure ALAMO knew all the facts when it challenged CONFIDENCE of 
CONSANGUINEOUS.  I saw ALAMO stumbling and dribbling at The Dripping Blade last 
week...  ALAMO was so studly out there in the sands!  Beating CONFIDENCE and getting 
29 points.  SMITHSONIAN must be proud, for sure!   
     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.)  
     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.  ARKERS is like such a dump, and you guys smell 
too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte
