                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome TRANSEL.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with SON OF JOHN?  
He actually beat TRANSEL's EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, and walked away with 20 more points 
from the fight.  Major screwup at PSYCHO SQUAD.  SHIRLEY KNOTT lost 15 points to 
WARWIND.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe SHIRLEY KNOTT will provide more easy 
wins...  Try as she might, DAZEY MAY wasn't good enough at persuading INK AND STEEL 
to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  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?  All 
work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Alarond the Scribe -- Now, I only did that once back on turn 453, and still you speak
of it.  I was young, besides Nick said it would be funny and it wasn't like Doc Steel
was going to miss him. -- Liam

Transel -- Hey, have not been home in a long time, and where is everyone? -- Liam the
Goth

     Mazatlan.  Well, the Delarquans.  The Andorians go to the Catskills, and the
     Free Blades are all over the place.

Jorja -- Hey you, stop by Northfork and see they are in TW8 or so, I think I'll be
here for a bit.  How's the fishing this time a year? -- Liam

Ink and Steel -- What?  Oh... okay.  Whatever you want.  I guess I wasn't paying
attention.  What? -- Dazey May

What the fork?  What the SPOON?  Dazey May gets this Xenoria babe all stirred up and
then SICS her on me? -- Sweet Freddy

Shandy -- Not now, I've got other things to worry about. -- Lizzie Broadaxe,
sharpening her axe and keeping an eye on Sweet Freddy

What a bunch of idiots!  I was "barely slain"?  Does that mean I'm only "slightly
dead"?  Idiots. -- Really Annoyed Ghost of Surly Shirley

One. -- Shirley Knott
