                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  NIYTYOLE ISLAND needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Like, THE 
WARBIRDS had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by GIRL SCOUT 
COOKIES!  Way to go GIRL SCOUT COOKIES!  What was the name of that team who got 4-1-0 
this turn for a total 7-4-0 you ask?  (Sure)  I'M DAN, MAN's their name, and 
fighting's their game!  MVP award for DROP DEAD DAN?  I'M DAN, MAN's proud of him 
after beating EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and getting 15 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  
TEMPE's match with KING FISHER cost it a loss of 3 points!  This Duelmaster is like 
something else!  SAVANNAH stopped CONVICTED ASSASSIN dead in his tracks!  Who was the 
wiseguy that said NIYTYOLE ISLAND's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Don't 
Drop Inn?  Don't look at me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  Like, is EAGLE popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all 
of NIYTYOLE ISLAND!  He's got a 6-9-0, is that good?  People were asking me did 
ORANGE PARK REALLY challenge FALLSWORTH?  (all right, maybe they didn't, but it 
sounded good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but FALLSWORTH wants me to 
write about it since he won victory over ORANGE PARK.  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.  How cruel!  THE WARBIRDS heartlessly sent 
hers to HAWK certain fate in the Dark Arena.  Is a 2-12-0 bad or something?  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 know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Orange Park -- Wow!  How'd you do that? -- Samoa

All -- Savannah graduates!  Yay!  In case you care, Savannah's a 13-10-8-17-11-8-17 
slasher.  Ad master init, Master attack, Experts in riposte and decise.  Favorites:  
great axe, high, very low.  Not awesome, but not bad either. -- Cookie Monster

Bird Master -- We're still here. -- Cookie Monster

Dameon D. -- Someone use a resurrection prize on you?  Say, what'd you end up using 
that +5 prize on?  I hope the answer isn't "one of my stinkin' P-strikes!"

BTW, I run 'I'm Dan, man' here now.  You gonna be active for awhile?  If so, I may as 
well run.  I'd love to kick the crap out of Ryanator! -- Shoto or Hoffa or whatever I 
called myself here...

     Dameon Darkheart -- It is my pleasure to meet you, sir.  May your team always 
     fight well. -- Livia

     Arenamistress `Sugar' -- In case you have failed to note the fact, you are the 
     arenamistress (the gods know why) of ARVAT, not of Niytyole Island.  Please 
     confine your opinions and comments to your won little newsletter. -- Arenamaster 
     Kaghal of Niytyole
     P.S.  Do you employ the denominative `Sugar' in the hope of distracting people 
     from the faint but inerradicable odor of fish and river mud that lingers about 
     your admittedly `well-rounded' person?

     Kaghal -- Frankly, I think your ragged-tailed, ship-wrecked gladiators would be 
     happier with a warm, friendly person like me than with a stiff-necked old megorst 
     like you.  I'm a lot more fun. -- Sugar

Bird Master -- Dunno.  Serious vanishing act, tho. -- Coeur
