                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out ARVAT to see 
what's new.  Like, SARATOGA GLORY had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off 
#1 spot by THE REPUBLIC!  Way to go THE REPUBLIC!  Uncool, CRUCIBLE.  I mean 1-4-0 is 
bad.  Will they will be allowed to fight?  I say use 'em for training practice!  The 
guys at BARN OF HORRORS like really pulled together to get a 3-2-0 this turn, moving 
up by 3.  Cut this out and put it in your scrapbooks, ANGELS OF PAIN!  'Cause they 
got 4-1-0 and moved up to 4th!  MVP award for DREAD?  ANGELS OF PAIN's proud of it 
after beating LARA and getting 28 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  LUCIUS' 
match with BOLT THROWER cost him a loss of 18 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster 
is being unfair?  I think MESHARR should let ANGUISH be Duelmaster for a while, 
without fighting about it.  Who was the wiseguy that said ARVAT's Duelmaster was 
paying for drinks at The Welcome Wench?  Don't look at me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  The warriors of SARATOGA GLORY must be getting 
lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  
I don't know what THE REPUBLIC's been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting 
many fights from SARATOGA GLORY, that's fer sher.  Like, is FUTARK popular, or what?  
He was challenged the most in all of ARVAT!  He's got a 4-5-1, is that good?  MARCUS 
is being unfair.  He's challenged down 18 against WRACK'M.  I don't know why they let 
this stuff go on.  (I'd better shut up) WRACK'M is a real man!  He was challenged by 
MARCUS, 18 points above, and BEAT him!  Dark Arena, anyone?  For sure, I was holding 
my breath when I found out MYSTIC MIRAGE challenged KARLRAK.  After all, haven't 
SARATOGA GLORY and RILL'S GCSC2 had a long standing duel in ARVAT?  It wasn't a 
spectacular fight, or anything, but KARLRAK wants me to write about it since he beat 
MYSTIC MIRAGE.  Satisfied?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  It was kind of sad, seeing old FUTARK stumbling around the arena, before 
APOLLONIUS finished him off.  Oh well!  Like was that some Bloodfeud, or what?  
(UNDEAD DUCK vs. SLAPYOUINPUBLIC, that is.) Ooh!  The suspense is killing me!  
CAESAR'S THUGS has like just one turn to Bloodfeud FRENZY of ANGELS OF PAIN!  Will 
they do it???  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, 
that's what!!!   
     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.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Mountain General -- Ouch.  That was an ugly matchup for me with all of my two arena
fights.  At least the skills were well worth it! -- Dee T. Empter

Mesharr -- Yep.  That's why I didn't want to fight you.  Nicely done! -- Ted D.
Seaver

Varius -- Hey.  I won a fight.  It's been a while.  Maybe I can keep this up and
graduate by Christmas.... -- Anguish

Pitlord -- Well fought once again.  Our policy is typically four bloodfeuds for a
kill agaainst our team, but we voted to cut you a break since you're new here.  Good
luck in the future. -- Lou C. Firr

Futark -- <bow> Touchi to you. -- Mz Bob, call me Baaad

Marcus -- Not a favor in the lot, you are the bellwether. -- Blender

Pringles -- We're not counting chips, but you got 8-balled. -- Wrack'm

Dark One -- Sorry about the Dark Arena thing, wasn't aware of the name until I was
reading over the fight. -- Fox, mgr. Eclipse

Let me clarify, I hate total parries.  Not everyone. -- Fox, mgr. Eclipse

Lucretius -- Good fight. -- Sky Knight

31 May 2008
Any and all who live in the 805 area, I would like for you to call me so we can get
together for BBQ's, softball games, and so on.  It has been a while since the last
get together (several years).  It was a blast and I am sure the next one will be
also.  We just have to do it.  All alliances are welcome.  Just because my warriors
leave your warrior beaten and bloody in defeat does not mean we can't have a beer or
five together.  I'll even buy the first round.  So call 805-588-3419 and ask for Dave
a.k.a. Misfit, former member of the Green and Purple Polka Dot Alliance (GAPPDA).
