                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out ILLIS to see 
what's new.  MVP award for I'M A BASHER?  BASHAHOLICS ANON's proud of him after 
beating ROSE SHELL and getting 18 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  ROSE 
SHELL got smashed by I'M A BASHER, and lost 11 points!  Don't you think the 
Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think DERELICT should let KUNG-FU MASTER be Duelmaster 
for a while, without fighting about it.  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?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  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.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

I'm a Basher -- Are you sure this is something to boast about? -- Rose Shell
P.S.  Or is it a confession?  I've got my doubts about public confessions, they seem
like backhanded boasting.

I'm Powerless -- That's probably because batteries were not included. -- Kirrala

Lee's Revenge -- Wow, you must've really annoyed her to get thrown into the arena for
revenge! -- Kona Quail

And even more, to get thrown in twice in one day. -- Stingaree

Mini-Pumpkin -- If you're a small one, I'd hate to see a MAXI-Pumpkin. -- Kalaboosha
