                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out ROCANIS to see 
what's new.  Too bad, MIDDLE WAY 20, but INCONSISTENT FURY was just too good to be 
stopped.  MVP award for SNAKE BITE?  SERPENTS' HOLD's proud of it after beating 
GERHART ERVIN and getting 24 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  GERHART ERVIN's 
match with SNAKE BITE cost him a loss of 20 points!  This Duelmaster is like 
something else!  LINKIN LOGGER stopped DRAKEN-KORIN dead in its tracks!  Who was the 
wiseguy that said ROCANIS' Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Wanton Troll?  
Don't look at me!   
     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 
588-432-46 record really that scary?  I don't know what TREXTRAS' been doing.  They 
certainly haven't been accepting many fights from INCONSISTENT FURY, that's fer sher. 
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All ROCANIS ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out 
of a job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  ROCANIS is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  Its 
been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte
