                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in KALTOS since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with DERBIE FOYLE?  
He actually beat CRAYOLA KILLERS' BURNT OCHER, and walked away with 45 more points 
from the fight.  Laughs were big at KALTOS while they watched VENOMOUS CONCUBINE 
clobber FOLIE HANNA.  She lost 4 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  What a role model for KALTOS' young 'uns!  BULL DURHAM becomes Duelmaster, 
but don't bother to fight no more!  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for THE MIDDLE 
WAY 5's outstanding member, Duelmaster DERBIE FOYLE.  Wouldn't it be nice to have 
live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted 
prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  DERBIE FOYLE proved too determined for BURNT OCHER. 
BURNT OCHER was lucky to go in the ring, with 13-5-0 to his credit.  He will be 
remembered.  Better to die a quick death in the prime of life than to endure an 
eternity of constant pain, eternal boredom...  Does CRAYOLA KILLERS agree?  How long 
have I been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  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

Samantha Fox -- A good try, but I can try hard, too. -- Beliss Don
P.S.  I'd recommend you take a night off partying, though.

Bull Durham -- A classic effort, very impressive. -- Folie Hanna

What does it TAKE to please that Venomous Concubine?  I tried everything! -- Faron
Harn

Hoffa -- That was a joke, right? -- Derbie Foyle
P.S.  Why doesn't A-Sop find someone else to warriors after?  There are WAY too many
Hoffas around these days.

The Userous Merchant had some very strange ideas.  But then, I had a few ideas of my
own, too. -- Jad Ladrue

19 August 2003
     Citizens of Ghea (only the ignorant fail to note Lirith Kai is not in Alastari),
no new day is rising, but the sun is setting on just another beautiful evening.
While you were sleeping, an irksome rabble has entered the always fair Aruak City.
Of course they fought alongside our warriors, most not so treasured, as all
gladiators do.  They drank with themselves, and slept with themselves.  Whether they
had masks, who cares.
     Warriors, don't be afraid.  For years Aruak has been one of the safest cities in
Ghea, and that custom has been continually cultivated, and will continue to be by
those who have called it home for years and those who live, fight, and die by the
same ethics.  There is no contest, nor has there ever needed to be one for many
years.  A conflict of personalities has arisen, and the city has been 'invaded' by
pests.
     Any rules that are annouced will be purely for the joy of the lemmings' own
little world.  Those who are being targeted have no interest in participating except
to defend the integrity of an arena that is different from others.  Whether you
choose to come to Aruak, do it for your own reasons, not theirs.
    Competing in Aruak City has never been for the faint of heart or the weak willed.
Combat is combat, wherever you go.  Blood will flow as always, and now many innocents
will be caught in the middle, but those who defend Aruak's traditions never target
those who bring respect of Aruaki customs with them to our home.
    So ignore the private ranting announcement brought by the stuporous
Frothingsloshers.  If you choose Aruak City, do not choose it for an unsanctioned and
bogus 'contest', choose it for the tradition.  Choose it because Aruak is different.

                     The Sealer says, "Hi, I'm the dealer."
                     Papa Bear says, "It's not my f****n fault."
