                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in XOCHITHLAN since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Woof!  BASH BROS BABY were 
a bunch of dogs after THE MIDDLE WAY got through with 'em!  3rd ain't so sweet as 
1st!  What's with WOVERN YANSY?  He actually beat PARKLAND's CWM, and walked away 
with 12 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at THE MIDDLE WAY while they 
watched WOVERN YANSY clobber CWM.  It lost 8 points and got bruised from objects 
thrown from the stands.  Try as he might, HORVANTH IRNDE wasn't good enough at 
persuading SOVEREIGN 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.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  
XOCHITHLAN thinks CHAOS WARRIORS and their 21-19-1 is too much!  If at first you 
don't succeed, give up...  Management must be dealin', as the boys at PARKLAND ain't 
reelin'!  CHAOS WARRIORS' mad!  How well I know the feeling of being the most 
challenged warrior, DOESN'T SLEEP!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to 
haunt you.  Fighting is a better craft than farming, ULRIK VENN, but you have to pay 
your dues.  Being challenged by MASTEMA, 20 points above you, is dues.  MASTEMA won 
victory over ULRIK VENN.  I bet MASTEMA could beat two-year-olds, too.  Well, THE 
MIDDLE WAY knows who to set their sights on.  Taunt your opponent ZAQIEL!  That was 
my lucky charm when I was unfairly challenged.  (and by 21 points!)  AERY should have 
an easy win.  AERY defeated ZAQIEL.  PARKLAND calls this fighting?  In my day...   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  So BASH BROS BABY sent DOESN'T SLEEP to the Dark 
Arena.  Big deal.  Plenty more fighters where DOESN'T SLEEP came from.  Dime a 
dozen...  Now, Spyreporters...  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many 
skills, fight dirty.   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  All work 
and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Spectre -- If Assur doesn't answer--he's at the Face to Face in Tempe today--I can
say that the mail-in tourneys fall in the spring and autumn.  The spring tourney is
usually in the first half of April, the fall tourney in the last half of October,
more or less.  There should be announcements with your turn when one impends, and any
mini-overviews received at that time will also list the tourney due-date. -- Jorja

Two-three, wins over standbys and losses to managed warriors.  The age of miracles
withdraws.  Oh, well. -- Salome Torene
