                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for CHAVEZ RAVINE.  MVP award for SUM OF ALL 
MEN?  FORCE OF FIVE's proud of him after beating GREEN DISEASE and getting 15 points. 
Talk about yer big time losers!  TEASE got smashed by JELLO BOY, and lost 9 points!  
The Duelmaster isn't going to stop just cause he's Number One!  RIOT ACT knows this.  
He was challenged by the Duelmaster.  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair? 
I think MAX FACTOR should let RIOT ACT be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting 
about it.  Who was the wiseguy that said CHAVEZ RAVINE's Duelmaster was paying for 
drinks at The Crystal Wheel?  Don't look at me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  INSIGNIFICANCE was CHAVEZ RAVINE's most avoided team. 
Is there some award for that?  I don't know what CORPS' been doing.  They certainly 
haven't been accepting many fights from INSIGNIFICANCE, that's fer sher.  Can SAND 
DANCERS' DONSTAN be more popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that 
really the same?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All CHAVEZ RAVINE ever talks about is 
fighting!  Me, I'm more laid back.  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.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Max Factor -- My congratulations to you on your graduation, as I congratulate myself
on mine.  But (smugly) I was the only one to get skills out of that fight, even if
you were the one who won!  On the whole, I am well satisfied, and I thank you and
wish you well. -- Tilaen tyl Sanh
P.S.  All right, all right, that wasn't the absolutely politest personal I could have
written, I suppose, but...I wanted to go out on a win!

Riot Act -- Mantor!  Nobody told me my opponent was going to READ to me!  I am NOT a
read-to-me sort of person.  Heck, if you want the truth, I'm not a read-to-myself
sort of person, either.  In fact, rioting sounds like a lot more fun!  How about if
we go riot together? -- Donstan

Arm -- And you're a strong one, too.  I really, really didn't like it when you "put
the arm on" me.  And you a sneaky, hairy Dwarf, besides! -- Pelak ten Zorn

Pansy Parkinson -- Well, you know, you're a cute kid, even if you are a beanpole.
Eight inches taller than me?  I don't think we're ever going to be a couple, kiddo,
but you'll do fine when you find a taller man. -- Tsirell
P.S.  Men don't like it when women tower over them.  It makes us feel insecure.
P.P.S.  Threatened, even, especially when they've got sharp pointy things in their
hands.

Fatal -- Your team name is wrong.  You should be on a team called Inconvenience, not
Insignificance.  Because, if you want to know the truth, I would consider fatal
things not at all insignificant.  It's an aspect of the old "try to stay alive"
instinct. -- Ronsevan

17 July 2004
I am currently trying to put together a favorites chart for AD warriors.  I
desperately need help with this.  What I need are style, favorite rhythm (ex.:
hi/low), favorite weapons, and tactics.  What would be great is if you could send me
a copy of the invite with the warrior's name, id#, and arena blacked out.  This way,
I can verify that this is an actual warrior.  Minis will work, too!

For those interested, I have both a challenge style vs. style and a match-up style
vs. style chart.  There's about 250 fights calculated in these charts, and I'll be
happy to send a copy to anyone who asks.  You can contact me (if you're a free world
player) at: Rick Stringer, Merit/East, SCI, P.O. Box 500, Georgetown, DE 19947-0500.
If you're in prison, just send a diplo to:  Baphomet, Mgr. Knights Templar (568), DM
#47--North Fork.  (I also have a lot of other charts and info for anyone who wants
it.)  Thanks!

30 July 2004
The total number of fights calculated was reported as 250 fights.  This is a
misprint.  It should have read "over 2,500 fights." -- Baphomet
