                                      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.  Ya gotta be quick on yer 
feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the pain!  BLACK AND BLUES 
is now ranked 2nd with a 3-2-0 turn.  What's with ALICE AIN'T HERE?  She actually 
beat BLACK TIDE's JUMBO, and walked away with 18 more points from the fight.  Major 
screwup at BLACK TIDE.  JUMBO lost 12 points to ALICE AIN'T HERE.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe JUMBO will provide more easy wins...  INK AND STEEL was 
reminded on the sands why JOE WILLIAMS is Duelmaster.  I suppose you want to hear 
some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     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.  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.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Embezzling Scribe -- Who do you think you are?  Throwing crits at me like that.
What's next, the Duelmaster for you? -- Evil Fingers

Jorja -- See, magic & Arcanum acting funny.  Hey, you should get Ketchum a pegasus
without that magical restraint, and some BBQ shampoo. -- Liam
P.S.  That'll teach him to be a bully.

Sweet Freddy -- Congrats to you, have fun on the Isle. -- Liam

Jorja -- Well I'm out of gold for the arenas, with HW eating up all my gold.  Should
be back after the new year.  It's been fun as always. -- Liam

Well, FINALLY, that dumb Freddy is out of the way and *I* can start to get the
recognition I deserve! -- Lizzie Broadaxe

think they should go into the newsletter, you know?  Good fight. -- Not-A-Nut Jones,
earlier graduate of the Psycho Squad, stepping in to keep some kind of pieces

Wegerin Greatblade, disgusting little walking tin can of a dwarf that he is, can put
THAT in his pipe and smoke it. -- Lizzie Broadaxe

Fly -- You're a nasty little thing.  I believe I used to deal with nasty little
things like you, but I have a notion--it could be wrong, someone seems to have messed
with my head so that I can't hear the voices as clearly, but I *think* some
INTERFERING SON OF A FEMALE DOG has SERIOUSLY messed with my head lately. -- Son of

Big Bill Broonzy -- Damn. -- Shirley Knott

Cool!  A win, I always wanted one of those. -- Doophus
