                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to KALTOS once again!  Ya gotta be quick on yer feet!  Keep your 
elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the pain!  SCOUNDRELS is now ranked 6th with 
a 0-0-0 turn.  What's with ERLOI GILL?  He actually beat JOHNS' ZAKAU, and walked 
away with 26 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at THE MIDDLE WAY 5 while 
they watched ERLOI GILL clobber ZAKAU.  He lost 23 points and got bruised from 
objects thrown from the stands.  Try as he might, FREDERICK DOUGLASS wasn't good 
enough at persuading MANUTE BOL to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Advice 
to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     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, I'M HISTORY!  The bums at LARGE LOSERS couldn't face the challenges from 
I'M HISTORY!  No excuse for that!   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, 
fight dirty.   
     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!  I don't want to 
overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Scoundrels -- I wanted to let you know that Gator Bait will not be running in the
arena again until after the MI.  I regret that this will effect your potential blood
feud.  If you would like to blood feud let me know and I will do my very best to have
him back in the arena the next turn after the MI.  I know how it is to have someone
kill one of your warriors and then quit running. -- Polarius, mgr. of Blitzkrieg

Embezzling Scribe?  The Commission expects ME, a gladiator of, ahem, unplumbed
talents, to fight an Embezzling Scribe?  The man was helpless without his quill.  He
kept trying to write things in the sand with his toe, which understandably distracted
him from the fight.  He is lucky I didn't just come right out and kill him. --
Ferghan Hohl

I know it looks like three of us fought the same standby, but it actually wasn't so.
The three Convicted Thieves were members of a gang.  Brothers.  The Johns Gang or
something like that, I didn't actually catch the names. -- Erloi Gill

Erloi Gill -- You're too soft.  Death to all Thieves! -- Ingold Kerr

Flimsy sorts, aren't they? -- Norle Parth

Buzz -- Of course you have.  But I don't use a mere BATH, I cleanse myself in boiling
water.  I'd like to see YOU do that. -- Chester the well-boiled Egg

Ferghan Hohl -- I was just trying to work out the odds so as to place the most
advantageous bet on our fight. -- Lurvayne to'Kass
P.S.  I didn't EMBEZZLE.  I just borrowed a little money out of the till in order to
place a SURE THING bet on a horse.

Ingold Kerr and Norle Parth -- You will pay. -- Hector Jones, of the Famous Jones
Brothers, Robbers of Banks

Flynn -- You think you've got something to crow about, don't you?  Just wait, eh?
There'll be alleys. -- a Guardsman

Zakau -- This does not cancel the money you owe me.  Indeed, the interest rate has
just gone up. -- a Merchant
