                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome BONSUR.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with WOOD CHUCK?  He 
actually beat UNDER JOLLY ROGER's CAT-IN-THE-HAT, and walked away with 28 more points 
from the fight.  Laughs were big at EAGER BEAVERS while they watched WOOD CHUCK 
clobber CAT-IN-THE-HAT.  He lost 13 points and got bruised from objects thrown from 
the stands.  Ya gotta watch yerself all the time.  Even being on top don't mean yer 
safe.  I'd have CLARITIN JUNKIE agree with me, but PESCHISOLIDO killed it.  I suppose 
you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  BONSUR thinks BRAIN and 
their 21-15-0 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  In my day, no 
team with a 21-15-0 would scare me off!  What's the problem, WASTELAND II?   
     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.   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
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

Splice -- I don't understand at ALL what you're getting at.  I guess that's the
chaoticness of it, right?  But if we had a gazebo, I would be able to understand. --
Beach Betty the Gazeboless
P.S.  Why aren't you a Jolly Roger?

Claritin Junkie -- Gods, I hate it when you finally DO sneeze.  There aren't enough
umbrellas in the WORLD for that.  And it's totally gross, and it doesn't MATTER
whether or not we have a gazebo.  A gazebo wouldn't help. -- Umbrella Man

Well, I'll tell you what *I* think, what I think is, the Ambitious Guard should be
sent out Under Jolly Roger and he'd learn some MANNERS, or at least how to fight.
And he wouldn't be here when I needed a fight and I met get someone who could TEACH
me something. -- Laguna Lil the Annoyed

So maybe the Vicious Pirate could teach manners to the Ambitious Guard, though he's
not much of a teacher, and his manners are frankly deplorable.  But they could beat
each other up, and the rest of us could stand around and cheer them on. -- Salton
Seahorse

Tonya -- Aren't you glad you fought me and not some standby?  Because I taught you
stuff.  I'm generous that way.  Also, you should be happy because I'm an orc, and I
can teach other stuff that is REALLY important, like how to get a man.  What you need
is a lasso, or maybe a net, which some prefer.  And a club to make sure they're
submissive once you've GOT them.  It's really very simple. -- Sandy Shore

We of the Desolate Empire Alliance want to announce with glad hearts that Heathen
