                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out ZORPUNT to see 
what's new.  MVP award for INNY MEANIE?  MONEY PIT's proud of it after beating DALE 
and getting 14 points.  Like KRILL CAVALRY's PINE LEAF is sweating since she got 
challenged by Duelmaster STONEFISH!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  
I think STONEFISH should let PINE LEAF 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.   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  The warriors of GANG GRENE-BAX must be getting 
lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  
Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are MONEY PIT?  GANG GRENE-BAX, an easy team to beat if 
I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  Like, is PINE LEAF popular, 
or what?  She was challenged the most in all of ZORPUNT!  She's got a 22-23-0, is 
that good?  People were asking me did KING BROWN SNAKE REALLY challenge BILL POOLE?  
(all right, maybe they didn't, but it sounded good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, 
or anything, but BILL POOLE wants me to write about it since he defeated KING BROWN 
SNAKE.  Satisfied?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Hey, warriors get killed by other 
warriors, not by their manager sending them to the Dark Arena.  What's wrong with 
GARGUS' 3-1-1, GANG GRENE-BAX?  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     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

good, I'll let you know.
