                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for VEASTIAN.  Talk about yer big time losers! 
SELINSIA got smashed by DANGEROUS CRIMINAL, and lost 9 points!  What a putz!  MUSHAD 
fights so hard to be Duelmaster, then quits fighting and loses the title.  No one 
said he was a genius...  Was that a tear I saw in SOLDIER 2's eye, as he took over 
Duelmastership?  And wasn't DAI ZE DAI fit to be tied!  Is the Duelmaster really 
being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  Can MEDAL OF 
HONOR 27's SOLDIER 2 be more popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is 
that really the same?  For sure, I was holding my breath when I found out DAI ZE DAI 
challenged SOLDIER 2.  After all, haven't TERMAGANT VOTARY and MEDAL OF HONOR 27 had 
a long standing duel in VEASTIAN?  It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but 
SOLDIER 2 wants me to write about it since he dealt death to  DAI ZE DAI.  Satisfied? 
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All VEASTIAN ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  SOLDIER 2 of MEDAL OF HONOR 27 wasn't planning on killing 
DAI ZE DAI, I bet.  Now he has to worry about being Bloodfeuded, and getting put on 
lists...  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you?  
Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     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

Sjordhal -- I was winning.  Let me catch my breath. -- Dolt Dimwit

Worthless Ando -- Just when I thought I was going to the Dark Arena, there you were,
giving me another chance. -- Urijah Trigg

Ragin' Bulls' -- 5-0-1 is nice, but if you really want to impress us, pull a 5-0-5
turn. -- Noachian, mgr. Termagant Votary

Dolt Dimwit -- You know, somebody really did an unfair number on you, naming you
that.  You may not be great, but you're okay.  You should be on our team! -- Sjordhal

Urijah Trigg -- Damn, don't DO that.  Yeah, sure, our records are still mirror
images, but I wanted another win!  I'm trying to prove to all my teammates and my
manager that I do NOT deserve the name that was hung on me, any more than your
teammate Dolt deserves his. -- Worth Lissando

Peace -- Weird name for a gladiator, but then you Easterns are strange, aren't you?
And I won, so no serious complaints here. -- J'Korou

Dangerous Criminal.  What is it with these dangerous criminals in the arena?  Did
somebody think they needed weapons training?  They're ALREADY dangerous, and even the
Commission, not noted for its perception, has figured that out. -- Noriltenne

I defeat the Userous Merchant and he gives me a discount coupon?  Why does this sound
too good to be true? -- Selinsia
