                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I don't know what Extrusion thought he was doing, but then, who can second-guess
a golem?  They don't think like people.  Having the title and a winning record is
cool, but I suppose it won't last.  Somebody's bound to come along and try to take it
away from me.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out SNOWBOUND to 
see what's new.  Cut this out and put it in your scrapbooks, CRIMINAL MINDS!  'Cause 
they got 4-1-2 and moved up to 2nd!  MVP award for JOHN DILLINGER?  CRIMINAL MINDS' 
proud of it after beating EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and getting 13 points.  Talk about yer 
big time losers!  PETRA QUORD got smashed by MRS. VAUGHN, and lost 8 points!  Don't 
you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think INGLEMORT JULS should let DOMJON 
be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  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.  MIDDLE WAY 6 
was the most avoided team.  Is a 191-269-7 record really that scary?  Is there some 
deep dark secret why LIFE IMPACTS' been avoiding MIDDLE WAY 6 so much?  Or is it just 
that they're too scared?  Like, is PETRA QUORD popular, or what?  She was challenged 
the most in all of SNOWBOUND!  She's got a 15-22-0, is that good?  HOOPS must not be 
a good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  It challenged CASS DOLAN.  8 is a big 
difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I thought HOOPS showed great skill and 
promise when it won victory over CASS DOLAN.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big 
deal!   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  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 gotta leave.  SNOWBOUND is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby 
Tonte
