                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  ARVAT needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  What was the name of 
that team who got 4-1-1 this turn for a total 293-195-17 you ask?  (Sure)  ANGELS OF 
PAIN's their name, and fighting's their game!  MVP award for BILL P. GORE?  DEVIL 
ADVOCATES' proud of him after beating SARLOW and getting 16 points.  And I was just 
getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome ABBIE DONN.  
Aren't DEVIL ADVOCATES proud.  (Oh, my.) Who was the wiseguy that said ARVAT's 
Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Dripping Blade?  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?  DEVIL ADVOCATES was the most avoided team.  Is a 
1139-676-58 record really that scary?  Is there some deep dark secret why ANGELS OF 
PAIN's been avoiding DEVIL ADVOCATES so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared? 
Like, is SARLOW popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of ARVAT!  He's 
got a 14-41-0, is that good?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All ARVAT 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.)  
     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.  ARVAT is like such a dump, and you guys smell 
too much!  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Fillis -- I can't stand fighting these stand ins--which is, I guess, why they call
them stand ins....  Anyway, if you don't mind let's have one more go around in the
interest of a couple more skills! -- Rampage

Unbreakable -- Go ahead, soak up the political points that go with the title--I do
want a shot to reclaim the throne, however! -- Abbie Donn

Sarlow -- I'm not really that little, but a girl will take all the compliments she
can get! -- E. Bliss

     Damn straight! -- Arenamistress Sugar

Greed -- Lot of that going around, and I can see why.  Superficially attractive,
immediate gratification, all that "good" stuff.  I think I'll just cut bait. --
Cutler Bates

Abbie Donn -- I can see why Heron is attracted to you, you're a lot of woman.  But...
not my kind of woman, I think.  Stick to the Heron, he may have cold feet, but he's
reliable. -- Peter Pequin

Umbreakable -- Apparently so. -- Sarlow

Oshan -- Actually, I'm glad you don't kill houseplants.  They add something to the
ambience of the home, and *I* sure can't keep 'em alive. -- Fillis Bouy

Hammir -- Jorja tells me you have a "well-omened" name, apparently simply because she
graduated someone of that name from... Tobir, maybe, or Caleam. -- Big Minnow

Not going to get our replacement in today. -- Jorja, Fisherman's Wharf

Abbie Donn -- No, you just use a short spear, which kills 'em fine.  If it hits, of
course.  You have to be fast and accurate, but, you know, they're just FISH.  No
armor, no weapons, no tactics. -- Heron
