                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to RODEKI once again!  What's with NISSA BREEZE?  She actually beat 
RODEKI's EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, and walked away with 20 more points from the fight.  
Laughs were big at DEALER'S CHOICE while they watched 21 clobber SILVER LADY.  She 
lost 6 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Try as he might, 
ANVIL wasn't good enough at persuading RAZZ to step down from the Duelmaster's 
throne...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  RODEKI thinks DELVERS and 
their 896-1179-22 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  In my day, 
no team with a 894-1176-22 would scare me off!  What's the problem, THE SOVEREIGN?   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting 
younger every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     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.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Jade -- I heard those Zarlany always have horses, they're famous breeders or
something.  Of course, if you LEFT, maybe you didn't get along with horses?  I mean,
they're big and kinda dumb and they step on people, right? -- Joseph George

Scorpio -- Death happens.  Our gladiators are out there with real weapons, and it
isn't always necessary to SEEK "the death stroke" or whatever, sometimes it just
happens.  As to the "death intent statements," those are totally not related to
whether or not the warrior in question has a high or low Kill Desire; they are purely
a function of the loser's condition. -- Harby

Four-one?  Is this the right team?  Has someone rung in a bunch of competent warriors
to replace my miners? -- Harby

Our congratulations to Razz. -- Harby and the Delvers
P.S.  We'll hoist a drink to you as you leave.

Long-N-Slim -- Is this a death wish on your part?  I have six times your fights.  So
I lose a lot, doesn't mean I'm not skilled.  And you aren't wearing enough armor. --
Joseph George

Blue Smoke -- Either you're really lacking in accuracy, or you're trying to kill me.
Either does not meet with my approval. -- Silver Lady

Stud -- That was just weird. -- Rocksnail the surprised

They said the Vet was a dwarf, and I was all set to fight a dwarf, and then he came
out and he was TALL.  Threw me off, okay?  And it's just LIKE a dwarf to be sneaky
that way.  Probably built-up soles in his boots. -- Anvil

Oh, for the cat's sake!  I am NOT a dwarf.  I want that FIXED. -- Downer
P.S.  All miners are not dwarfs, you know.

Ike Nightshield -- Well, we were a pair out there, weren't we?  Looks like both of us
need to do a little work. -- Downer
