                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome NIANIA.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with STANISLOE 
DRELL?  He actually beat THE RUNAROUND's FOGSTORM, and walked away with 21 more 
points from the fight.  Laughs were big at NIANIA while they watched MORDANT DESERTER 
clobber PILSEN.  He lost 11 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  NIANIA has a Duelmaster who doesn't sit back and get lazy.  He challenged 
GNU TEAM's GNU BOOK (11-5-1), which should prove (ahem!) interesting.  GNU BOOK was 
reminded on the sands why CHARLIE HORSE is Duelmaster.  Advice to fighters with a 1 
will--give up fighting!   
     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, GNU TEAM!  The bums 
at THE FUNNY FARM couldn't face the challenges from GNU TEAM!  No excuse for that!  
What do people see in GNU BOOK?  His 11-5-1?  GNU TEAM ain't talkin', but he's got 88 
points.  Taunt your opponent HARKRANZ!  That was my lucky charm when I was unfairly 
challenged.  (and by 65 points!)  I. M. WEASEL should have an easy win.  I have to 
get this off my chest.  What a low dog, I. M. WEASEL!  He can't set himself up in a 
real match.  I was sorry to see HARKRANZ lose.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  I like to see warriors put young whippersnappers in their 
place.  I guess you could say THE GOLDEN FISH'STANISLOE DRELL did just that.  Right 
THE RUNAROUND?  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.  
All work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Hmm, we're moving up fast as a "Team on the Move."  How does this happen?  Can it
be... that someone on this team is doing things right? -- Jorja
P.S.  And I see Harkranz has gotten most of those points at plus twenty-six.  I gnu
he could do this.

Gnu I Knew -- So there! -- Harkranz

Tooth Pick -- Maybe that'll teach you to run around on me! -- Uethinria

Gnu Recruit -- Not THAT way, good gods!  You need to fight someone else where you can
do better. -- Kinthira
P.S.  Not that I *minded* the win.

Maul on Wheels -- Are you *allowed* to bring that... that battering ram chariot into
the arena?  Gods, maybe I should try a mobile siege tower! -- Korbrizt Horon
P.S.  How could I possibly teach you all that?  I don't *know* all that!

Robot Chicken -- Oh, gods, how embarrassing!  Next time, please!, lose to me!  And
teach me more than one skill. -- Stanisloe Drell
