                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in JURINE!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Too bad, STAR WARS, but SHEWISH 
BUFFET was just too good to be stopped.  MVP award for ARKAN BARNES?  MIDDLE WAY 16's 
proud of him after beating DARTH VADAR and getting 23 points.  Talk about yer big 
time losers!  DARTH VADAR got smashed by ARKAN BARNES, and lost 18 points!  Don't you 
think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think HORSE D'OEUVRE should let VINDA YARRO 
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?   
     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, who is this guy???  RED SHIRT #2 
gets sent to the Dark Arena, battles HIGH ELF, and returns to tell of it!!!  I bet 
TREXTRAS manager is surprised!  It was kind of sad, seeing old HESTER INGMAR 
stumbling around the arena, before ZENSU LASAGNA 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.)  
     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.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte
