                                      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 BLUEBURN?  He 
actually beat BEACH BABES' SALTILLA, and walked away with 21 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at SENTINELS while they watched BLUEBURN clobber SALTILLA.  
She lost 19 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Try as she 
might, EPEE MYSTIQUE wasn't good enough at persuading HIDA YAKAMO to step down from 
the Duelmaster's throne...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was 
CHURCH LADIES.  The bums at SENTINELS couldn't face the challenges from CHURCH 
LADIES!  No excuse for that!  How well I know the feeling of being the most 
challenged warrior, CHAOTIC DEATH!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to 
haunt you.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting 
younger every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  The 
end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Congratulations to our outgoing Duelmaster and Lord Protector--hopefully you can use
your immortality to your advantage in the tournament.  The team also made it to 100
wins last turn--worthy of Thunderous Applause, I suppose. -- Nomad and the Sentinels

Doh!  I beat the deserter (And who wouldn't want to escape Mordant?) but I wasn't
supposed to fight--that is really going to mess up my tournament. -- Kronos

Venus -- We will do that again sometime with a different result.  Nice win. --
Blueburn

A slave?  Am I the only one around here who finds that idea displeasing?  Give me a
Babe anyday.  And a free babe at that. -- Baldassare

     The Slaves are grandfathered into the system.  All the grandfathers have 'em.

Jeebus -- I won't miss you, little guy.  Perhaps I can go back to matching up with
your teammate every turn. -- Epee

Candy Cane -- Well!  You're a most unlikely church lady, unless it's a very strange
church. -- Palmetta Patty

The Preacher -- I dislike having someone preach at me, which isn't what made me hit
you, of course.  I hit you because you challenged me and it was my JOB to hit you.
But it's why I buried you in the sand. -- Saltilla

Rev. Jimmy -- Really, it's amazing what this arena is coming to!  It seems like
there's hardly anybody to invite over for a tankard of smash.  Although I suppose we
could call it a libation if that would help. -- Rose o' the Reef

Blueburn -- Ah, great stuff, sunscreen.  If one uses the really good stuff, it
screens out more than sunburn, you know. -- Little Venus
P.S.  Not that I have a tendency to burn, which I don't, I just tan to a pleasing
golden shade.

Blueburn -- Certainly!  And do be sure to come by the cabana tonight, as we're having
a lot of fried chickens.  That's the best kind of chickens, of course, and normally
we wouldn't be having FIVE at once, but the Farmer Next Door left the door of his
chicken coop open and they came over and made a mess of our early garden and Sam,
Surfer Sam, you know, it's his vinyard where we have the cabana, he graduated YEARS
ago, Sam was annoyed.  It isn't like we haven't told the Farmer Next Door about the
bad latch on his coop and that we wanted him to keep the chickens home, but he just
doesn't listen well.  So we're eating them.  Let him put THAT in his pipe and smoke
it! -- Saltilla

Baldassare -- Oh, yes, we SHOULD!  Tonight, after the chickens and the smash? -- Rose

Our congratulations to Hida Yamako. -- the Beach Babes

Kronos Grimholt -- Listen, if you'd been to Mordant lately, you'd have left, too. --
Elvisnith, late of Mordant

Lord Protector Hida Yamako -- Word's gone out about Gifts for Graduating Gladiators
again, and we're supposed to "find something" for you.  Arenamaster Ilhume' won't do
it, he says it isn't his job.  Chancellor Grendal won't do it, he says he's too busy
chancelling.  So it looks like it falls to me, even though I don't want the job,
because I didn't get out of the way fast enough.  You'll have to give me until next
time to look around and find out what is available, although I can tell you now that
it won't be lands.  All the lands belong to people, and none of them are prepared to
give any away, not so much as a square inch.  Tedious of them, but I suppose I
shouldn't grumble, if I had lands, I wouldn't be giving them away, either.  Nor would
I be fighting in the arena, come to that.  Anyway, I shall study the possibilities, I
believe there's a back room at the arena that has odds and ends of possibilities
stuffed into it, and let you know next cycle. -- Alainensiel, Highest Elf of Bonsur
