                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in ROCANIS!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for BACK?  GET's proud 
of him after beating NICKOLI DRYBONE and getting 15 points.  Talk about yer big time 
losers!  NICKOLI DRYBONE got smashed by BACK, and lost 13 points!  Like MIDDLE WAY 
20's ERBIN GOETZ is sweating since he got challenged by Duelmaster SMASH!  Was that a 
tear I saw in ERBIN GOETZ's eye, as he took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't SMASH 
fit to be tied!  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?  The warriors of INCONSISTENT FURY must be getting 
lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  
Is there some deep dark secret why THEM's been avoiding INCONSISTENT FURY so much?  
Or is it just that they're too scared?  Like, is ERBIN GOETZ popular, or what?  He 
was challenged the most in all of ROCANIS!  He's got a 23-15-1, is that good?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Like was that some Bloodfeud, or what?  
(DEBRA FARIN vs. IEZA VON DRAKA, that is.) CHEBOB ERLE really fought hard against 
MANZA WIGGLES.  That'll teach INCONSISTENT FURY not to go and kill any of MIDDLE WAY 
20's guys again, huh!  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

Rirorni Saboteur -- Hard to win when all your weapons are broken and in the dirt. --
Nickoli Drybone

Debra Farin -- Ack, bad match for me!  Let's not do it again, please. -- Hal'Igge
oyroc

Rirorni Assassin -- Shouldn't you be using a dagger?  The big axe doesn't really seem
to be, ah, ya know, stelathy -- but it sure does work! -- Ieza Von'draka

Whomp -- Ahh, you defended very well.  Maybe next time I hit/crush ya. -- Rathnok
Malroot

Ilbar Kamo -- Okay, so maybe no wins in your future.  Put you out of your misery. --
Manza Wiggles

Smash -- Damn, I hate you guys who figure you have to live up to your names.  I mean,
I try to be the most Erbin of the Goetzes, but it isn't the same as you being the
smashingest Smash. -- Erbin Goetz

Hal'igge Joyroc -- It's probably the apostrophe.  It slows you down. -- Debra Farin

Cobra -- Ack. -- Forlis Hooler
P.S.  If I had some clue that you were paying attention, I'd try to be wittier, but
you just slither along and bite people, so what's the point, eh?

Manza Wiggles -- Do you know that my manager just said, "Good riddance!"?
Outrageous.  So I had a losing record, I'd have picked up with it, dammit. -- Ghost
of Ilbar Kamo
P.S.  Low con doesn't help.

A Rirorni Archer.  Hmm.  Not much of an archer, he had no bow. -- Chebob Erle
