                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  NIATOLI ISLAND needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Too bad, 
RAVAGING LORDS, but THE SEWING CIRCLE was just too good to be stopped.  MVP award for 
WINDMILL WILLY?  THE SEWING CIRCLE's proud of him after beating THE USEROUS MERCHANT 
and getting 17 points.  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think 
ZOMBIFIED should let DIRTY HOWEL be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about 
it.  Who was the wiseguy that said NIATOLI ISLAND's Duelmaster was paying for drinks 
at The Don't Drop Inn?  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 RAVAGING LORDS must be getting 
lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  
I don't know what LIVING HELL's been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting 
many fights from RAVAGING LORDS, that's fer sher.   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  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 know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte
