                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  ROCANIS needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for NEWTON 
PYNE?  MIDDLE WAY 20's proud of him after beating ROO and getting 9 points.  Talk 
about yer big time losers!  ROO got smashed by NEWTON PYNE, and lost 8 points!  What 
a putz!  NIGHT CRAWLER fights so hard to be Duelmaster, then quits fighting and loses 
the title.  No one said he was a genius...  Was that a tear I saw in FRANKLIN E. 
SIGLER's eye, as he took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't DENNA FEYL fit to be tied!  
Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  MEN OF STEEL was ROCANIS' most avoided team.  Is 
there some award for that?  I don't know what GRIZZLED VETERANS' been doing.  They 
certainly haven't been accepting many fights from MEN OF STEEL, that's fer sher.  
Like, is DENNA FEYL popular, or what?  She was challenged the most in all of ROCANIS! 
She's got a 18-26-0, is that good?  See if I ever talk to FRANKLIN E. SIGLER again!  
DENNA FEYL was so low when He challenged he.  Hhmph!  FRANKLIN E. SIGLER beat DENNA 
FEYL.  No surprise about that.  Really I'm not surprised FRANKLIN E. SIGLER would do 
such a scummy thing, either.  For sure, I was holding my breath when I found out 
PRIVATE 4 challenged NICHOLAS.  After all, haven't MEDAL OF HONOR A11 and MEN OF 
STEEL had a long standing duel in ROCANIS?  It wasn't a spectacular fight, or 
anything, but NICHOLAS wants me to write about it since he bested PRIVATE 4.  
Satisfied?  SERGEANT 3 must not be a good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  He 
challenged HOUSTON FARMER.  15 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what they tell 
me.) I thought SERGEANT 3 showed great skill and promise when he beat HOUSTON FARMER. 
All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     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!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Three-two, with two of the wins being over standbys.  Nothing wrong with that!  Of
course, *I* defeated a real warrior, one who had at least two thirds as many regular
arena fights as I do!  Maybe he's done tourneys, maybe not, who knows?  Still, I
salute a valiant effort.  And what the heck, I salute our new team member, too.
She's a cute little thing. -- Newton Pine
