                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in VEASTIAN!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Like, LUROCIAN ROYALTY had to be 
so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by THE FAMILY!  Way to go THE FAMILY! 
MVP award for LORENJIE?  THE FAMILY's proud of her after beating CAPTURED ORC and 
getting 17 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  PRINCE JACKSON's match with BITT 
BETRO cost him a loss of 4 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  
I think ELOWAN should let PRINCE CONNOR 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.   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     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.  VEASTIAN is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Prince Connor -- I knew I didn't like royalty, you just confirmed it. -- Bitt Betro

Xargoth -- I never have cared for my brothers, or yours either. -- Vaistinie

Steel Spar -- I'd like to see someone lower a boom on you, but I don't think it'll be
me. -- Senjiro

This Convicted Thief is pathetic.  A voice in the stands said so, and it's true. --

An Embezzling Scribe, that's good, too.  Even better than the Mordant Deserter--more
skills for me. -- Lorenjie
