                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in NIATOLI ISLAND since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf 
Modeen adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Hmmmph!  I always 
thought DEATH PENALTY was an over-rated team and they proved it with a 0-2-0!  Up 'n 
down.  Up 'n down.  Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  
Well, LUDUS TYRANNUS' 6th moved them up to 3-2-0 place.  Some people say I ramble too 
much, I don't say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I ramble.  Well SLORBUST 
moved up 0, to 2nd.  What's with LACY?  She actually beat BAD BREAD's GAUCHE BRIOCHE, 
and walked away with 23 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at RAVAGING LORDS. 
JUNEAU lost 16 points to HELL RAZOR.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe JUNEAU 
will provide more easy wins...  See how the Duelmaster Dark Arena Challenged DARK 
ARENA's GERELIN LOSTFIRE?  That sort of initiative is how he got where he is now.  
Try as he might, GERELIN LOSTFIRE wasn't good enough at persuading CUT DROOL to step 
down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to 
practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, DEMONSPAWN!  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at SLORBUST ain't reelin'!  DEMONSPAWN's mad! 
How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, PUT LIGHTS UP!  
Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  Fighting is a better craft 
than farming, GREVINE, but you have to pay your dues.  Being challenged by ABADDON, 
16 points above you, is dues.  Just who can ABADDON beat?  I mean, the last matchup 
with lesser-ranked GREVINE shoulda been a piece of cake!   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Who will dare fight CUT DROOL, after he returned from the Dark 
Arena?  (For the record 20-10-6 is 120, and has he points) GAUCHE BRIOCHE, with his 
forgettable 11-13-1,  was dispatched by LACY in a forgettable match.  BAD BREAD 
didn't seem to mind very much.  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, 
places to go...   
     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

RUG #44 -- You can do better than that, if they are not stupid they are Giants. -- 
Chad

     They might be giants -- but what are you gonna do unless they are? -- RUG #44

Hell Razor -- Ok, ok, ok, you got yourself a winner!  How much did you pay the RUG's 
for your initial roll-up because my gifts do not seem to be enough. -- Chad

Den 1-2 not sure where you get your numbers. -- Hastur 

Hastur -- I don't think I like your attitude, so you can forget any chance of interest 
on our part.  So, keep raising your sheep, or whatever it is you do over there on the 
east side of the Island, weirdo. -- Den

Consortium Folk -- Pretty much nobody in this arena wants to hear your pathetic 
sniveling disease-infested comments.  Your time in this arena has come and gone, much 
like bell-bottoms, your hair, Sprite's deodorant, folk music, food stamps (much to 
your chagrin), Binaca (much to the chagrin of anyone that talks to you), your future, 
and Dr. Kevorkian (much to my chagrin).  My dislike for you is as high as your 
neighbors fences.  Hey, here is a question; what has two thumbs and does not like you?  
Me, well and everyone else I have ever talked to.  Go spew your garbage somewhere 
else, Ratman the Hypocrite. -- Den

Vart -- If I were indeed tending to the needs of Scorpio the Lord of Idiocy I would 
simply need some stain fighter, a large box of Mac-n-Cheese, and a year's supply of 
tissues.  That degenerate needs little else I am certain. -- Lauri the Tramp, still 
the arena's most well used asset
