                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I salute you, Kid Koala.  A fine warrior and doubtless well-timed for the
tournament.  And... much to be preferred to fighting Elderly Women.  Some managers
have peculiar senses of humor, if that's what it is.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome JHELUM.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Bein' on top is great while 
it lasts, DOGS OF WAR.  But how many friends do you have now?  What's with GRRR?  It 
actually beat PEARL JAM's MIKE MCCREADY, and walked away with 14 more points from the 
fight.  KID KOALA was reminded on the sands why JAEGER 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.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  The most avoided team 
was DOGS OF WAR.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at LEGIONS' OF HELL ain't 
reelin'!  DOGS OF WAR's mad!  How well I know the feeling of being the most 
challenged warrior, BUNKER BILL!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt 
you.   
     Warriors of JHELUM unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Many a warrior has 
met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  The 
end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

We salute Kid Koala.  Show 'em what's what in the tournament! -- Jorja and the Dogs
of War

Eddie Vedder -- Well, you HAD to win slimly, didn't you?  Because you had to be slim
to slide through the chinks in my defense.  I suppose that counts as "well done." --
Bunker Bill, feeling depressed, but it's probably just seasonal affective disorder

Mike McCready -- Well, you were cready, and I was cnapping, I guess. -- Bran Mac Morn

Arrgh -- Zombies.  Argh. -- Raj Fenris

Grrr -- Yeah, what he said. -- Sun Tree

ALL -- MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL IN ALASTARI!!!
May your year end in peace and the new year hold great things for you and your
families. -- Gentleben (Sunset-21, Morya-28, Arvat-32 and Talahya-100)
