                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in SUNSET since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Phhbltt!  Too much 
drinking and too little dodging gave D.R.I. a 0-0-0!  I got a good laugh out of it!  
Ya gotta be quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out 
the pain!  GRIM FANDANGO is now ranked 5th with a 4-1-2 turn.  It seems so recently 
people were saying WAR ZONE was washed up, finished.  But 4-1-0 moved them up 6.  I 
guess they're washed no more...  Welcome to SUNSET, KENDER INVASION!  We need more 
teams who can get a 4-1-0 their first time out!  What's with SYFF?  He actually beat 
FORCE OF FIVE's SORAKA, and walked away with 20 more points from the fight.  Laughs 
were big at BEN'S BAZAAR while they watched MONSTROSITY clobber DARK CURSE.  He lost 
9 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  What a role model for 
SUNSET's young 'uns!  PRIA becomes Duelmaster, but don't bother to fight no more!  
I'm sure SUNSET is excited about SUGAR SMACK, the new Duelmaster from THE CEREAL 
KILLERS.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  Wouldn't it be nice 
to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of 
convicted prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, BIG LAKE 
TERROR!  The bums at GRIM FANDANGO couldn't face the challenges from BIG LAKE TERROR! 
No excuse for that!  What do people see in DARK CURSE?  His 4-4-0?  BIG LAKE TERROR 
ain't talkin', but he's got 16 points.  Fighting is a better craft than farming, KHAN 
MAN, but you have to pay your dues.  Being challenged by DARK TORMENT, 21 points 
above you, is dues.  DARK TORMENT beat KHAN MAN.  BIG LAKE TERROR calls this 
fighting?  In my day...  Keep challenging up 31 points, SWAN, and I won't have to 
write about you much longer.  SEJUANI always accepts those kind of challenges...  
SWAN found one way to advance:  challenging SEJUANI and losing, but getting 5 points. 
No brain, no pain.  I hate going to the effort of writing about the kind of fights 
that HELLAHURT gets in.  He fights people like DARK THINKING, 9 points below.  I 
thought HELLAHURT showed great skill and promise when he killed DARK THINKING.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Death is no stranger to a warrior.  FORCE OF FIVE's 
SORAKA led a good life before leaving SUNSET.  Many would be proud to leave behind a 
9-5-0.  And this week the Duelmaster--whoops!  GOLGOTHA'S BLOOMS has one week left to 
avenge LA TIGRESA's death by excessive hits on the part of SUGAR SMACK of THE CEREAL 
KILLERS.  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  The 
end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want to 
overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

                     PAYMENTS BY CHECK AND MONEY ORDER -- CHANGE

Please note that because of new bank regulations, we can no longer accept any check or 
money order drawn off a non-US bank, even if it is in US Funds.  We were just informed 
by our bank that the fee to process these checks is $40, which is crazy high!

Many apologies to our foreign players, but you will need to either get a check from a 
US bank (Chase, Citigroup, etc.) or pay via credit card.  

  Armsilbar liked being Master of the Stronghold Academy, all except for one part.

He had to talk to Sheila Greywand at least once a week, usually oftener.  She was 
getting more erratic.  More chaotic.  That would be the effect of the Grey Wand.  It 
was a powerful chaotic artifact, and she kept it with her always.  She had turned his 
predecessor into a frog--or 164 frogs--and then summoned all the members of the 
Academy to a frog-leg dinner.  That had been, ah, bad.  Yes, very bad.
     But here he was entering her chambers.  With, well, it couldn't be called GOOD 
news.  And the look she turned on him--she was in an orcish mood today, all scowling 
black brows and bared fangs--that made him nervous.  But some things had to be done.  
He cleared his throat, which seemed to have a frog in it, and said, "It's about the 
next tourney prize, Lady.  I know it's more than two months away, but this isn't too 
soon to start thinking of some new, exciting prize--"
     "I have no intention of thinking about 'new, exciting prizes'," she snapped.  Or 
was that a snarl?  "These managers are getting above themselves.  They act like I 
created the arena system for their amusement!  There will be one standard prize for 
all the tourneys.  Just one."
     He had a horrible vision of all the managers walking out in a mass.  Perhaps it 
wouldn't be that bad, but it wouldn't be good.  And if he said the wrong thing, well, 
the next frog-leg dinner might be him. "Er, ah, perhaps a specific prize for each 
tourney--a spring prize, a summer prize, and so on?  The managers expect--"
     She exploded.  A literal explosion, the force of the blast blew his hair off.  
She said several things in an obsolete dialect of orcish.  He stepped backward, then 
again.  The blast had blown the door open behind him.  If he could make it out before 
something else happened--
     "Ribbit!  Ribbit!"
