                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out TOBIR to see 
what's new.  What was the name of that team who got 4-1-2 this turn for a total 
14-18-5 you ask?  (Sure)  SPQR's their name, and fighting's their game!  MVP award 
for CORNELIUS SULLA?  SPQR's proud of him after beating CONVINCIAN HERO and getting 
11 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  VISIGOTH's match with JUNO cost him a loss 
of 8 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think ZERO THE HERO 
should let KHALHUMS DWARF be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  Is 
the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  Can THE DOGHOUSE's JUNO be more 
popular than me?  He 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.  What a bunch of heartless!  I couldn't 
believe how many people were snickering when FLAVIUS MAXIMUS killed DUM HAIRY THING.  
So he had a 3-6-1, that's no excuse!  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.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Dead Man Walking -- (grumbling furiously)  If only you'd limit yourself to walking!
You leap, you hack, you continually shift back and forth (disconcerting, that), I
break your weapon and you pull a backup and spin on me!  Is this any way for a
decent, respectable dead man to behave?  Yes, and another thing!  Where's your
respect for a senior warrior?  You Convincians just don't know how to behave. --
Pussyfoot the disgusted

Angry Shew -- (injured look)  (quite authentic)  Why are you mad at ME?  I didn't do
it!  Honest!  In fact, I have no idea what the problem is at all.  I was just
innocently sniffing around, nosing out a few choice bits of this and that cast aside
by picky eaters, and POW!  You really clobbered me. -- Bowser
P.S.  Better than being clabbered, though.

Visigoth -- That will teach you to go pillaging centers of civilization!  Where am I
going to find a decent couturier if you and your uncouth kinsmen go pillaging and

plundering all the centers of civilization?  I'll have to go to Lirith Kai, and I
don't know if I can stand the beadwork and embroidery they always load onto stuff.
So pull up your socks and get a little couth, boy! -- Honey Pup

The Thing -- And a particularly crude and obnoxious thing you are, too.  I never
expected to see something like you outside a carnival sideshow--  Wait!  (hunted look
around)  Tell me the Carnival isn't coming to town!  (determined look)  Well, if they
DO, we'll just throw you in their path! -- Juno

This Volunteer guy shifted his eyes back and forth, back and forth.  It made me feel
funny, and that made me mad, so I swatted him a couple of times.  Then he stopped
shifting his eyes. -- Dum Hairy Thing, who puts up with a lot, but there are limits,
okay?  Some things I shouldn't have to put up with.

17 July 2004
I am currently trying to put together a favorites chart for AD warriors.  I
desperately need help with this.  What I need are style, favorite rhythm (ex.:
hi/low), favorite weapons, and tactics.  What would be great is if you could send me
a copy of the invite with the warrior's name, id#, and arena blacked out.  This way,
I can verify that this is an actual warrior.  Minis will work, too!

For those interested, I have both a challenge style vs. style and a match-up style
vs. style chart.  There's about 250 fights calculated in these charts, and I'll be
happy to send a copy to anyone who asks.  You can contact me (if you're a free world
player) at: Rick Stringer, Merit/East, SCI, P.O. Box 500, Georgetown, DE 19947-0500.
If you're in prison, just send a diplo to:  Baphomet, Mgr. Knights Templar (568), DM
#47--North Fork.  (I also have a lot of other charts and info for anyone who wants
it.)  Thanks!

30 July 2004
The total number of fights calculated was reported as 250 fights.  This is a
misprint.  It should have read "over 2,500 fights." -- Baphomet

                                  LAST WEEK'S FIGHTS
