                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out SOLVEN to see 
what's new.  Like, MIDDLE WAY 15 had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 
spot by MEDAL OF HONOR 104!  Way to go MEDAL OF HONOR 104!  MVP award for ROCKIT?  
80'S DISCO's proud of him after beating NYSSA RYE and getting 15 points.  Talk about 
yer big time losers!  NYSSA RYE got smashed by ROCKIT, and lost 13 points!  The 
Duelmaster isn't going to stop just cause he's Number One!  IRSON ORSON knows this.  
He was challenged by the Duelmaster.  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair? 
I think DOUGLAS T. JACOBSON should let IRSON ORSON be Duelmaster for a while, without 
fighting about it.  I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours 
sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  Like, is IRSON ORSON popular, or 
what?  He was challenged the most in all of SOLVEN!  He's got a 19-20-1, is that 
good?  People were asking me did CONFUSION REALLY challenge IYAN KENNIS?  (all right, 
maybe they didn't, but it sounded good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, 
but IYAN KENNIS wants me to write about it since he won victory over CONFUSION.  
Satisfied?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All SOLVEN ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  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'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  Its been 
really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte
