                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out VEASTIAN to see 
what's new.  MVP award for PRINCESS EMILY II?  LUROCIAN ROYALTY's proud of her after 
beating ELDARRAN and getting 20 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  ELDARRAN's 
match with PRINCESS EMILY II cost her a loss of 8 points!  This Duelmaster is like 
something else!  PRINCE CONNOR stopped SENJIRO dead in his tracks!  I hear the top 
team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters 
for PR photos.   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  The warriors of THE FAMILY 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 SUPERHEROES!'s been avoiding THE FAMILY so 
much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?   
     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!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  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

Well, I didn't.  Now I'm back to befuddle and frustrate you with my senseless
