                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in ZUWAYZA!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for COSMO?  SEINFELD's 
proud of him after beating HOUSE BEAUTIFUL and getting 14 points.  Talk about yer big 
time losers!  HOUSE BEAUTIFUL got smashed by COSMO, and lost 13 points!  Don't you 
think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think NEWT ROCKNE should let UNCLE LEO be 
Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  Who was the wiseguy that said 
ZUWAYZA's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Drunken Ox?  Don't look at me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  THE 
MAGNIFICENT MAGS was the most avoided team.  Is a 777-945-23 record really that 
scary?  Is there some deep dark secret why MAN OR BEAST?'s been avoiding THE 
MAGNIFICENT MAGS so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?   
     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 UNCLE LEO 
stumbling around the arena, before NEWT ROCKNE 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.  I had 
a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Only six fights today, and all but one with a standby.  It must be the weather.  The
Storm Sea is well-named, and the wind that whistles off of it tonight, with the snow,
and the ice, and the unnamed howling creatures, is enough to keep all but the most
intrepid gladiators home safely in their guildhouses.  Or the most foolish!  Can you
imagine Health Digest being killed by an Ambitious Guard?  Halstorna of Delarq Tor,
that was.  Well, a Delarquan, that just about says it all, doesn't it?  And he was
taking Dark Root, I'm sure of it.  Jorja says that's a kind of "steroid."  What?  Ah,
well, Health Digest was an aimed blow, so you could say dying was his destiny, wasn't
it? -- Mother Ghea News
