                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out ROCANIS to see 
what's new.  Too bad, INCONSISTENT FURY, but MIDDLE WAY 20 was just too good to be 
stopped.  What was the name of that team who got 3-0-2 this turn for a total 53-56-8 
you ask?  (Sure)  THEM's their name, and fighting's their game!  Talk about yer big 
time losers!  BERNILLA DANZ got smashed by GARNET, and lost 16 points!  What a putz!  
RYVAS VOLKMAURI fights so hard to be Duelmaster, then quits fighting and loses the 
title.  No one said he was a genius...  And I was just getting used to the 
ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome RUBY.  Aren't ON THE ROCKS proud.  
(Oh, my.) I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They 
want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  INCONSISTENT FURY was the most avoided team.  Is a 
425-327-34 record really that scary?  I don't know what ON THE ROCKS' been doing.  
They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from INCONSISTENT FURY, that's fer 
sher.  For sure, I was holding my breath when I found out RUBY challenged DEBRA 
FARIN.  After all, haven't ON THE ROCKS and MIDDLE WAY 20 had a long standing duel in 
ROCANIS?  It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but DEBRA FARIN wants me to 
write about it since she was bested by RUBY.  Satisfied?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  What a bunch of heartless!  I couldn't 
believe how many people were snickering when SMASH killed ONYX.  So he had a 5-4-0, 
that's no excuse!  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.  Its been 
really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Ryvas Volkmauri -- Don't look at me!  It was Abelinda that was all hot to fight you.
-- Debra Farin

Ruby -- I know a good place for hot baths to soothe that knee.  We could take a
little wine, a loaf of bread, stuff like that, and make a night of it. -- Erbin Goetz

Agate -- Incredibly good skills, my thanks!  I didn't know I had it in me to learn
that much. -- Bernilla Danz

That was a whole SQUAD of Rirorni Soldiers!  I thought the duels were supposed to be
one on one. -- Forlis Hooler

Hal'igge Joyroc -- Hmm.  I didn't care much for the way the fight turned out, but at
least the Commission got my race correct this time.  I guess I'd better forego the
mustache, which is a shame.  I really LIKED that mustache. -- Hal Jeevers

Note -- We are still looking for additional teams in Arvat, DM 32.  I still have a
number of good team rollups available FREE for whoever wants one.
     Contact the Devil Advocates ASAP to join the fun!  You can either reach me by
diplo or on the RSI site.
     Also, whoever sent me the diplo with no name on it requesting a rollup /
information on how to get into Arvat, I'm embarassed to admit that the diplo slipped
out of my folder and was lost.  Please just send me another one with your mailing
address and I'll get a rollup to you ASAP.  Sorry about that!
