                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in VALAMANTIS!  I still haven't told Mom I'm 
writing Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for WALKER?  
ZOMBIE SQUAD's proud of him after beating ROSWELL and getting 19 points.  Talk about 
yer major upsets!  ROSWELL's match with WALKER cost it a loss of 17 points!  What a 
putz!  MOOSEHEAD fights so hard to be Duelmaster, then quits fighting and loses the 
title.  No one said he was a genius...  And I was just getting used to the 
ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome NEEVAN POVAR.  Aren't MIDDLE WAY 10 
proud.  (Oh, my.) Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't 
ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  FLOYD'S BREWERY was VALAMANTIS' 
most avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are 
COVER-UP?  FLOYD'S BREWERY, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to 
accept an invitation!   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  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 gotta leave.  VALAMANTIS is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby 
Tonte
