                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of TRANSEL!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  GOLDEN DAWN showed TRANSEL what 
they were made of as they fought with a vengeance to walk off with 4-0-0.  What's 
with RIDLEY SCOTT?  He actually beat TRANSEL's EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, and walked away 
with 19 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at GOLDEN DAWN while they 
watched HEINKEL clobber DAVID FINCHER.  He lost 8 points and got bruised from objects 
thrown from the stands.  What a role model for TRANSEL's young 'uns!  MR. GHERKIN 
becomes Duelmaster, but don't bother to fight no more!  I can barely restrain my 
enthusiam for GOLDEN DAWN's outstanding member, Duelmaster ACOLYTE 1.  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.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  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?  
TRANSEL is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  
Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- 
Olaf Modeen

Hmm, Master Rholenn thinks he can hide by not using the official title, maybe, but
he's WRONG.  Kung-Fu is unmistakable, and that's what he was using.  What a beast. --
Normal Nan
P.S.  Actually, he IS a beast, he's Aruaki.  I never did care for cats.

Austin Nordell -- You want direction, we'll give you direction.  Go directly to jail,
not passing Go or collecting two hundred dollars.  See if we care!  Go go go. -- Eve
and Emma

David Fincher -- AAAAGGGH!  A golem!  No, get away from me!  I HATE GOLEMS!  They're
evil and they're out to GET us all! -- Not-a-Nut Jones

Ridley Scott -- You should buy me dinner.  I think I probably earned it. -- Happy
Harriet
P.S.  Besides, I want a Happy Hour.  With an olive in it.
