                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  KATI-TEI needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  BIRDS like really 
fought hard to move up to 8th from 11th.  Way to go!  Don't you think the Duelmaster 
is being unfair?  I think MARS should let NOBLE ASSASSIN be Duelmaster for a while, 
without fighting about it.  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.  GLAD TO MEAT 
YOU was KATI-TEI's most avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  I don't know 
what LOOD FOOD's been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from 
GLAD TO MEAT YOU, that's fer sher.  Can CLAN BATTLEAXE's ARRIVED be more popular than 
me?  He was challenged the most, but is that really the same?  People were asking me 
did EGGS OVERLY EASY REALLY challenge JEHU?  (all right, maybe they didn't, but it 
sounded good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but JEHU wants me to write 
about it since he was bested by EGGS OVERLY EASY.  Satisfied?  HOLY SCHLITZ must not 
be a good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  He challenged OSTRICH.  13 is a big 
difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I thought HOLY SCHLITZ showed great 
skill and promise when he was defeated by OSTRICH.  All right, so I slept through it! 
Big deal!   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Like was that some Bloodfeud, or what?  
(S&M&MS vs. OSPRY, that is.) 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 gotta leave.  KATI-TEI is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

All Readers -- Due to the pressures resulting from preparing for and dealing with the
Face to Face, no spotlights will be written until it's over. -- the Scribe

17 July 2004
I am currently trying to put together a favorites chart for AD warriors.  I
desperately need help with this.  What I need are style, favorite rhythm (ex.:
hi/low), favorite weapons, and tactics.  What would be great is if you could send me
a copy of the invite with the warrior's name, id#, and arena blacked out.  This way,
I can verify that this is an actual warrior.  Minis will work, too!

For those interested, I have both a challenge style vs. style and a match-up style
vs. style chart.  There's about 250 fights calculated in these charts, and I'll be
happy to send a copy to anyone who asks.  You can contact me (if you're a free world
player) at: Rick Stringer, Merit/East, SCI, P.O. Box 500, Georgetown, DE 19947-0500.
If you're in prison, just send a diplo to:  Baphomet, Mgr. Knights Templar (568), DM
#47--North Fork.  (I also have a lot of other charts and info for anyone who wants
it.)  Thanks!
