                                      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 HOUSTON FARMER?  
MIDDLE WAY 20's proud of him after beating FRANCIS THUG and getting 27 points.  Talk 
about yer big time losers!  SERGEANT 2 got smashed by NEWTON PYNE, and lost 22 
points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think KRAIT should let 
FERRIA HOUGH be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  Who was the 
wiseguy that said ROCANIS' Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Wanton Troll?  
Don't look at me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  MEDAL OF 
HONOR A11 was the most avoided team.  Is a 86-49-5 record really that scary?  Is 
there some deep dark secret why THEM's been avoiding MEDAL OF HONOR A11 so much?  Or 
is it just that they're too scared?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All ROCANIS ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  It was kind of sad, seeing old HELENA JONES stumbling around 
the arena, before GHOST finished her off.  Oh well!  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 gotta leave.  ROCANIS is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  I 
had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

The high number of deaths as compared to the active population here continues, but at
least WE didn't add to it from either side.  Of course, we went two-three, with the
wins being over standbys and the losses to real warriors, mostly snakes, so it was
not all sweetness and light at our guildhouse. -- Newton Pyne
P.S.  Not that we'd know what to do with sweetness and light if we got it.
