                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of NIANIA!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with TEH HADDOCK?  He 
actually beat THE RUNAROUND's HARDY BART, and walked away with 22 more points from 
the fight.  Laughs were big at THE GOLDEN FISH while they watched TEH HADDOCK clobber 
HARDY BART.  He lost 20 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  
NIANIA has a Duelmaster who doesn't sit back and get lazy.  He Dark Arena Challenged 
DARK ARENA's SHEWISH GIANT (0-0-0), which should prove (ahem!) interesting.  SHEWISH 
GIANT was reminded on the sands why ARCHED EYELID is Duelmaster.  I suppose you want 
to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  The 
most avoided team was THE RUNAROUND.  The bums at STINKY MEAT couldn't face the 
challenges from THE RUNAROUND!  No excuse for that!  What do people see in GLITTERING 
REEF?  His 2-1-0?  THE GOLDEN FISH ain't talkin', but he's got 9 points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Who will dare fight ARCHED EYELID, after he 
returned from the Dark Arena?  (For the record 22-8-1 is 111, and has he points) Many 
a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!  
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
The end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want 
to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Our congratulations to Arched Eyelid.  We still think he looks, um, odd, with his
eyelid hiked up like that, but a Lord Protector is allowed to be odd.  Way to go. --
Jorja and the Golden Fish

Also, we salute the participants in the Summer tourney with a special cheer for
tourney victors Burglar and Golden Drake and tourney Champions P.M.S. and Two Piece

Toenail.  And we commiserate with them on the nomes de guerre they got stuck with. --
Jorja and the Golden Fish
P.S.  How could anyone write an adventure for a Two Piece Toenail?

Two-three this time, and I'm graduating.  No telling what the team will do without
me.  I just hope they can learn to BE a team and not a handful of primadonnas. --
