                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out VEASTIAN to see 
what's new.  MVP award for RUWANA?  THE FAMILY's proud of her after beating FRATSFA 
SLAVE and getting 15 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  HASHIN got smashed by 
DOWN, and lost 1 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think 
PLASTIC MAN should let M. CHARDINEE be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about 
it.  Who was the wiseguy that said VEASTIAN's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The 
Dripping Blade?  Don't look at me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All VEASTIAN ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to 
hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  I had a fun 
time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Still only six fights, none in the Dark Arena, and three standbys, two for us.  Two-
three for the Family, if I'm reading this right.  There's been rain, and it blurs
things, you know, including newsletters. -- Ruwana

Stillgard -- I don't see the two of us reviving two arenas on the same day, but if
you want to try, well, I can't offer more than I did in Cliffhome, but I *will* offer
that. -- Jorja
P.S.  But not today, because my schedule is a mess.  I will TRY to reorganize my time
to squeeze in a little more role-play and spitlights (smaller than spotlights) for
these two arenas and maybe (gasp!) even others!  Lapur comes to mind, for one,
doesn't need it so much but might enjoy it.  Hmm.

                                  LAST WEEK'S FIGHTS
