                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out ZENSU to see 
what's new.  MVP award for LON CHANEY JR.?  MEN OF 1,000 FACES' proud of him after 
beating HAMILTON and getting 11 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  DACEANA LINZ's 
match with CAPTURED ORC cost her a loss of 4 points!  Was that a tear I saw in CHUCK 
ELVIS' eye, as he took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't BELA LUGOSI fit to be tied!  
I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want 
photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  The warriors of LETHAL LEGION must be getting lonely. 
They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  Is there 
some deep dark secret why MEN OF 1,000 FACES' been avoiding LETHAL LEGION so much?  
Or is it just that they're too scared?   
     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!  VABOROUGHS heartlessly sent 
his to ARCOLA certain fate in the Dark Arena.  Is a 11-9-0 bad or something?  I hear 
VABOROUGHS sent REMINGTON to the Dark Arena.  What, is that like not well-lit, or 
what?  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 gotta leave.  ZENSU is like such a dump, and you guys smell 
too much!  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

The Userous Merchant?  Like I care. -- Chuck Elvis

Bella's right about the Ambitious Guard.  A nice enough guy, but not a whiz on the
sands.  They SAY he's actually better than we see, but his contract prevents him
showing his stuff.  That's easy to say. -- Elda Mainz
