                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in BONSUR since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with AVALON?  He 
actually beat FORCE VENGERS' DARE DEVIL, and walked away with 17 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at SENTINELS.  WHISKEYJACK lost 14 points to BALOR.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe WHISKEYJACK will provide more easy wins...  DELLEA DOVER 
was reminded on the sands why EILEEN is Duelmaster.  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.  The 
most avoided team was BEACH BABES.  In my day, no team with a 911-1254-27 would scare 
me off!  What's the problem, CHURCH LADIES?   
     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

Skara Brae -- Do you know how annoying it is to have to enter the shrine of
spirituality at midnight during a Lunar Eclipse? -- Manager

Annie -- I almost thought I had my 5th win there.  Almost. -- Chaotic

Brae -- Just because I started with negative base skills does not mean I don't hit
hard. -- Chaotic

Ghost of Nikki Nails -- Wow, we never expected to see that happen!  We will dedicate
a keg of smash to your memory. -- the Beach Babes

Ozawindib -- Okay... whatever it was.  I mean, it was two weeks ago.  I should
remember that far back? -- Bellamore

Ozawandib -- You should've stuck to fighting Bellamore.  *I* don't need this
aggravation. -- Moma from Maui, sulking

Skara Brae -- Cool!  So often, an "uneven" fight runs against us, it was a pleasure
to have one run in my favor.  And you got a bunch of skills out of it, so that wasn't
all bad for you, either. -- Dellea Dover

Whiskeyjack -- That makes us one-two against the Sentinels this time.  Okay.  Come on
out to the cabana, and we'll show you a different kind of one-two. -- Annalee

Woodchip Willa -- Well, of course!  I'm sure woodchips have their uses, but they
aren't ideal for reclining on a beach.  Better than sharp gravel, but I'd rather have
honest (or dishonest) sand.  Smooth, yielding, warm.  Especially, this time of year,
warm. -- Bellamore the Chilled

Mary Ann -- People don't act like that in *my* church. -- Pearl White
