                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  VEASTIAN needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Too bad, WARRIORS OF 
STEEL, but IS THAT A CLUE? was just too good to be stopped.  MVP award for TORN 
CLOTH?  IS THAT A CLUE?'s proud of her after beating JEREMIAH BROADBLADE and getting 
18 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  JEREMIAH BROADBLADE's match with TORN CLOTH 
cost him a loss of 17 points!  Our Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to VETERAN 
MERCENARY, BUT VAISTINIE is still the Duelmaster because she has the most recognition 
points!  Who was the wiseguy that said VEASTIAN's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at 
The Swinging Aardvark?  Don't look at me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All VEASTIAN ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  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.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte
