                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out SNOWBOUND to 
see what's new.  MVP award for SPECTRA?  PUBLIC ENEMY's proud of her after beating 
SAXAPHONE and getting 23 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  SAXAPHONE got 
smashed by SPECTRA, and lost 8 points!  And I was just getting used to the 
ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome NEFARA.  Aren't PUBLIC ENEMY proud.  
(Oh, my.) 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?  PUBLIC ENEMY was SNOWBOUND's most 
avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are LIFE 
IMPACTS?  PUBLIC ENEMY, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to 
accept an invitation!  Like, is GARUTH HOLM popular, or what?  He was challenged the 
most in all of SNOWBOUND!  He's got a 11-10-0, is that good?  I'm not so sure OWN 
GOAL knew all the facts when he challenged ZURISDAY of PUBLIC ENEMY.  I saw OWN GOAL 
stumbling and dribbling at The Victory Tavern last week...  OWN GOAL was so studly 
out there in the sands!  Beating ZURISDAY and getting 26 points.  BASH BROS HOCKEY 
must be proud, for sure!   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  I hear MESOPOTAMIA sent CONSORT OF APSU to the Dark Arena.  What, is 
that like not well-lit, or what?  I'm always kinda bummed when a decent warrior gets 
killed.  MISSING TEETH, of BASH BROS HOCKEY had a 6-4-0 when he got bumped off by 
BERT & ERNIE.  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 know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte
