                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  ZORPUNT needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Cut this out and put 
it in your scrapbooks, DISASTER!  'Cause they got 3-0-0 and moved up to 2nd!  MVP 
award for ICE STORM?  DISASTER's proud of him after beating MORIT KOBUN and getting 
16 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  MORIT KOBUN's match with ICE STORM cost him 
a loss of 10 points!  Oh, wow, like the Duelmaster must be the most popular gal in 
all ZORPUNT.  She got the most challenges.  (But what about proposals?) PLATE SHIFT 
thinks his 9-1-0 and studly character is good enough to face up to the Duelmaster.  
Any bets?  And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh 
well, welcome PLATE SHIFT.  Aren't DISASTER proud.  (Oh, my.) Is the Duelmaster 
really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  The warriors 
of KRILL CAVALRY must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you 
guys know something that I don't?  I don't know what DISASTER's been doing.  They 
certainly haven't been accepting many fights from KRILL CAVALRY, that's fer sher.  
People were asking me did HARRY DRESDEN REALLY challenge MODESTA STONE?  (all right, 
maybe they didn't, but it sounded good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, 
but MODESTA STONE wants me to write about it since she won victory over HARRY 
DRESDEN.  Satisfied?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All ZORPUNT ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out 
of a job, that's what!!!   
     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
