                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in RODEKI!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  THE HYPHEN-DASH thinks its 
15-6-0 and studly character is good enough to face up to the Duelmaster.  Any bets?  
And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome 
THE HYPHEN-DASH.  Aren't COLOR ME SUAVE proud.  (Oh, my.) 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.  Can DELVERS' 
DACIMOUSEL be more popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that really 
the same?  BIG DISAPPOINTMENT must not be a good enough fighter to get in fair 
fights.  He challenged FAROMAN.  11 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what they 
tell me.) I thought BIG DISAPPOINTMENT showed great skill and promise when he was 
overcame by FAROMAN.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     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.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte
