                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of JHELUM!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with FUZZ BALL?  He actually 
beat LOTHLORIEN's ETHERIAL, and walked away with 15 more points from the fight.  
Laughs were big at JHELUM while they watched VENOMOUS VIXEN clobber BORE-O-ME.  He 
lost 11 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  CONVICTED 
ASSASSIN was reminded on the sands why LEGALASS is Duelmaster.  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.  How 
well I know the feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of 
practive, THE BOG!  The bums at THE SHALLOWSHIP couldn't face the challenges from THE 
BOG!  No excuse for that!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Hmm...  More surprises must remain in store for me, 
if VAGABOND can return from the Dark Arena.  Here's some advice:  study your 
opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     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.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good 
skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Appendicitis, Bursitis, Epimonidas -- They're all bad diseases.  I need a medic. --
Aragant

Howard -- How do you expect to get any better if you don't last past the first
round?  I'll send you some willow bark mead to sooth your skull. -- Bore-O-Me

I think it's time load the Dogs onto the Shallowship and sail off to the Gray Havens
and leave the rest of the orcs and scum to decompose. -- Scandalf

Bore-O-Me -- Yeah, me, too. -- Howard

Gimlet -- Shouldn't that have lime or something? -- Jimmy Custer

Aragant -- Don't let it betray you into foolish action, son. -- Epimonidas

Ah, a Cult Member.  We haven't fought a Cult Member in a year and a half.  It was
time. -- Hannibal

The Mordant Deserter is just dumb, as the Mordanti so often are. -- Challon

Unnamed -- If we knew who you were, we'd likely agree. -- Dogs of War

11 April 2006
To all those lookin' for some easy pickins:  I, Elfwine, manager of The Shallowship,
the most feared team in all of Jhelum, invite all who seek wide open spaces for pubs
and other such establishments of limited debauchery, to visit this deserted city and
help me clear up some of the dust.  I'm just about ready to have my guys face off
against each other to get some new action.  Guess I'd better join a tournament or
something...hmmmm, there's a thought.
