                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in LYRATILAN since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Biff!  Pow!  LYRATILAN 
watched with glee as WHEEL OF TIME got knocked off top spot by SAY MY NAME!  Ya gotta 
be quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the pain!  
THE MIDDLE WAY 4 is now ranked 4th with a 2-3-0 turn.  I can barely restrain my 
enthusiam for SAY MY NAME's outstanding member, Duelmaster BLOODY MARY.  I suppose 
you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     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, SAY MY NAME!  
The bums at ARCANE BOOKSHELF couldn't face the challenges from SAY MY NAME!  No 
excuse for that!  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, 
ARAM!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  NELLIE QUARRELS 
didn't quite know what to make of a challenge she received from THE SOVEREIGN of HELL 
TO PAY, who is 19 points below her.  THE SOVEREIGN perhaps got his just desserts, 
seeing as he subdued NELLIE QUARRELS and ended up with 66 recognition points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  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.  
Are you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm 
writing it before you read it.  Oh, well.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now. 
Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Only five dead, I guess we'll survive.

One-four again, but at least no one died this time.  Maybe we'll survive the rest,
worst, of the winter. -- Keokuk Moon, drafted to be team spokesman
