                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out SUNSET to see 
what's new.  Like, FAMINE had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot 
by DEATH'S DISCIPLES!  Way to go DEATH'S DISCIPLES!  Uncool, SONS OF SATAN.  I mean 
0-0-0 is bad.  Will they will be allowed to fight?  I say use 'em for training 
practice!  LAKOTA like really fought hard to move up to 4th from 10th.  Way to go!  
What was the name of that team who got 3-1-0 this turn for a total 9-2-0 you ask?  
(Sure)  CHAOS' their name, and fighting's their game!  MVP award for BULGAKOV?  
LITERATE LOONS' proud of him after beating VENOMOUS CONCUBINE and getting 12 points.  
Talk about yer major upsets!  ROOSTER FISH's match with CHOLERA cost it a loss of 10 
points!  Like, NERVE RAKER must be pretty gutsy!  He challenged the Duelmaster from 
D.R.I..  Does this guy have a death wish or what!  Was that a tear I saw in NERVE 
RAKER's eye, as he took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't VIOLENT PACIFICATION fit to 
be tied!  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?  The warriors of NOMADIC TRIBE must be getting lonely. 
They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  Is there 
some deep dark secret why GRIM FANDANGO's been avoiding NOMADIC TRIBE so much?  Or is 
it just that they're too scared?  Like, is ROOSTER FISH popular, or what?  It was 
challenged the most in all of SUNSET!  It's got a 1-5-0, is that good?  People were 
asking me did RED ROBIN REALLY challenge GENGHIS TRON?  (all right, maybe they 
didn't, but it sounded good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but GENGHIS 
TRON wants me to write about it since he overcame RED ROBIN.  Satisfied?  LOCUST must 
not be a good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  He TV challenged WICCAN.  8 is a 
big difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I thought LOCUST showed great 
skill and promise when he bested WICCAN.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big 
deal!   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  I hear DOC LEGRAND'S AVIANS sent BLESSED BLUEJAY to the Dark Arena.  
What, is that like not well-lit, or what?  Hey!  Quit laughing!  Just because 
VENGEFUL VULTURE had 7-13-0 was no reason for DOC LEGRAND'S AVIANS to send him to the 
Dark Arena!  Stop it!  Like, who is this guy???  BOREALIS gets sent to the Dark 
Arena, battles SHEWISH GIANT, and returns to tell of it!!!  I bet GRIM FANDANGO 
manager is surprised!  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.  SUNSET is like such a dump, and you guys smell 
too much!  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte
