                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in TRANSEL since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Woof!  THE VOLS were a 
bunch of dogs after MEDAL OF HONOR B6 got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so sweet as 
1st!  What's with GRUNT 31?  He actually beat THE VOLS' MINNIE PEARL, and walked away 
with 26 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at MEDAL OF HONOR B6 while they 
watched GRUNT 31 clobber MINNIE PEARL.  She lost 20 points and got bruised from 
objects thrown from the stands.  Har har har!  Did FORLORN wimp out, or just get 
lazy?  Anyway, he's not Duelmaster anymore.  I'm sure TRANSEL is excited about GEN. 
JACKSON, the new Duelmaster from THE VOLS.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many 
as I have...  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.   
     Warriors of TRANSEL unite.  You have only your games to lose!  How long have I 
been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  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.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

I have not been receiving my physical turns in a reliable manner lately.  If there
are diplos with the turns that go missing, they're gone for good.  So if you send me
a diplo and do not see an acknowledgement of receipt in the personals, know that I
have not gotten it (yet).  If you have email, contact me at Livia AT reality DOT com.
If you don't have email, keep trying with the diplos.  We are working on this
problem. -- the Scribe/Jorja/Leeta
P.S.  If you email me, put "Re DM" on the subject line.
