                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in CLIFFHOME!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for STABBING EASTWARD? 
TEAM FLOYD's proud of it after beating SAUVARN MAUR and getting 21 points.  Talk 
about yer major upsets!  BASKERVILLE PIG's match with ARGONATH cost him a loss of 14 
points!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  MY DEER WATSON stopped FAITH dead 
in hers tracks!  I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep. 
They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  Like, is 
ZANDER popular, or what?  It was challenged the most in all of CLIFFHOME!  It's got a 
9-2-0, is that good?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  It was kind of sad, seeing old SAUVARN 
MAUR stumbling around the arena, before STABBING EASTWARD finished him off.  Oh well! 
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.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte
