                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in MALCORN!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for LIL E. TEE?  
TRIPLE CROWN's proud of him after beating GREENGROVE and getting 20 points.  Talk 
about yer big time losers!  GREENGROVE got smashed by LIL E. TEE, and lost 17 points! 
This Duelmaster is like something else!  RUTHLESS stopped THE GOVERNATOR dead in his 
tracks!  Who was the wiseguy that said MALCORN's 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?  POLITICALY INCORRECT was MALCORN's most avoided team. 
Is there some award for that?  I don't know what TRIPLE CROWN's been doing.  They 
certainly haven't been accepting many fights from POLITICALY INCORRECT, that's fer 
sher.  Like, is STORMCLOUD popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of 
MALCORN!  He's got a 17-34-0, is that good?  LITTLE CURRENT is being unfair.  He's 
challenged down 18 against STORMCLOUD.  I don't know why they let this stuff go on.  
(I'd better shut up) I was sorry to see such an unfair "fight" in MALCORN.  LITTLE 
CURRENT got 2 points after beating STORMCLOUD, 18 points below him.   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  It was kind of sad, seeing old STORMCLOUD 
stumbling around the arena, before LITTLE CURRENT finished him off.  Oh well!  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.  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

The Governator -- I'm going to be like on the tee-shirt I saw:  The hell with the
lesser of two evils, Cthulu for President. -- Woodwalker the seriously annoyed
P.S.  Hmm, I suspected you were sinister, and now I see that you ARE.  Everyone knows
that lefties can't be trusted!

     Hey! -- Ed., a leftie from way back

Ruthless -- What would you do if I suddenly gave you a ten-pound sack of ruth?  If,
maybe, I got all my Shewish cousins to help hold you and force-fed you with all that
ruth?  True, it might make you sick, but any horse who would kick a man THERE
deserves to be made sick. -- Stormcloud
P.S.  'Tis the season for stormclouds, which means I should be WINNING.

Charismatic -- Somehow, I thought that would be a LIVELIER attribute. -- Stalking
Horse
P.S.  And more educational.

Morttikhan -- Your name confused me until I realized that you were an alien with a
weird accent.  Now all is clear.  You specialize in preparing your fellow aliens for,
ah, "translation to other forms and planes," or something like that, right? -- Wooden
Arrow

I move that we deport that Karnhorn Spy.  He's dangerous, and sneaky, and severely
insidious, and I don't LIKE him.  Well, he's a Karnhorn, after all, and I'm a Shew.
Naturally I don't like him.  That goes without saying, although most of us prefer to
say it anyway.  Just so you know. -- Greengrove

Sure does echo in here.

     We're looking into acoustic tile, but it costs a bit more than the arena can
     afford just now. -- Ed.

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!
