                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome MORDANT.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Biff!  Pow!  MORDANT 
watched with glee as SWEORDMASTERS got knocked off top spot by MANNEQUIN'S BEST!  
Hmmmph!  I always thought SHE'S CRAFTY was an over-rated team and they proved it with 
a 0-0-0!  Ya gotta be quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  
Block out the pain!  JGW PERISHABLE is now ranked 5th with a 4-0-0 turn.  DEATH'S 
DOOR showed MORDANT what they were made of as they fought with a vengeance to walk 
off with 3-1-0.  What's with COMICUS?  He actually beat LIVE FROM MOSCOW!'s ZIMA, and 
walked away with 27 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at LIVE FROM MOSCOW!.  
ZIMA lost 23 points to COMICUS.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe ZIMA will 
provide more easy wins...  MANNEQUIN'S BEST's hatred of ROMAN EMPIRE surfaced again 
as SWEET STUFF challenged MORDANT's top dog.  I'm sure MORDANT is excited about SWEET 
STUFF, the new Duelmaster from MANNEQUIN'S BEST.  (remember?)  But when you've seen 
as many as I have...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about 
your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  MORDANT thinks LAB 
EXPERIMENTS and their 373-375-42 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give 
up...  In my day, no team with a 371-374-42 would scare me off!  What's the problem, 
JGW PERISHABLE?  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, 
MAKESHIFT ANCHOR!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.   
     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!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
MORDANT is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  I don't 
want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Vengence -- You accused me of scumming you in the recent tourney, but how can you
really know my strategy when you didn't make it past turn 3?  In any case, Hericane
will be avenged and we'll send cupcakes afterwards. -- Tankerbell

Last week, Chark Forkbeard and Silisa the Snake had their BEST...WEEK...EVER.
Desolate Temple, not so much.

Mannequin -- Given the numerous deaths of my warriors at your warriors hands I take
satisfaction of finally getting a bloodfeud win against you.  It was an unfortunate
matchup of a new warrior against an established warrior that lead to the death, so I
will not challenge you again for this matter.  Good showing, sir.  You have my utmost
respect. -- JGW

Super Glue -- Why, you are a pesky sort.  I nearly had to go to reserve power to peel
the lid off your can.  Next time you'll think twice before offing a fellow warrior of
the stable. -- Lost Soul

SwineTiger -- Well, I'm here for a while, and ready to party.  Hope you brought the
dip.  I've got the bag of chips. -- JGW

Vengence -- For a warrior of a team that has a lot to say, you really didn't speak
volumes during your fight. -- Bess Amie

Gangrel -- Another minute and you would have been mine.  Next time you may not be so
lucky. -- Loyola

Tanker Bell -- You are scum!  Next time, I'll be ready! -- Undertaker

Bess Amie -- Good fight.  Thank you for the skills. -- Vengence

Loyola -- I'm not laughing at you.  The heck I'm not! *giggle* -- Gangrel

Death's Door -- I didn't want you to feel unchallenged. -- Kas, mgr. the Ministry
