                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in ZUKAL since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen adapts 
to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with PUSS?  He actually 
beat LETTER BOMBS' N. DORFIN, and walked away with 14 more points from the fight.  
Major screwup at BLUE MOON.  AZURITA lost 9 points to COPY CAT.  Some new strategies, 
perhaps?  Maybe AZURITA will provide more easy wins...  Try as he might, BLUE HAVEN 
wasn't good enough at persuading TOP CAT to step down from the Duelmaster's throne... 
I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  
Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  So LETTER BOMBS sent T. BONE to the Dark Arena.  Big deal.  
Plenty more fighters where T. BONE came from.  Dime a dozen...  Now, Spyreporters...  
Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take 
note!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  The end 
of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want to 
overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Top Cat -- You cursed feline!  You barfed all over my BEST shoes, then chewed them up
and buried them in the sand!  I can NOT go out barefoot, so I will have to retire
from the arena. -- a thoroughly dejected Blue Suede

Who was that warrior in the stands?  I want his name NOW!  He has no IDEA what it
takes to defeat the Khalhums Dwarf, and I will show HIM "pathetic."  He MIGHT survive
the experience, but then again.... -- Blue Haven

Rastilin -- You're too heavy for me. -- Azurita

Vincent -- Unlike my teammate Azurita, I can handle weight.  In fact, I can bench-
press a whole suit of armor! -- Steele

I am in the process of moving house, and spotlight writing for the next two months
will be very hit-and-miss. -- the Scribe

ATTENTION ALL YOU ALLIANCE-TYPE PEOPLE:
For the purposes of tourney newsletter alliance listings (when I am able to do them),
you may only be listed in ONE alliance.  In other words, you have to choose!  If you
are a part of Englebert's Alliance and Englebert's Alliance is "part" of Ruthrauf's
Alliance, I will list you EITHER as part of Englebert's Alliance OR as part of
Ruthrauf's Alliance, NOT both.  The default would be the top-level alliance,
Ruthrauf's, in this example.  If you'd rather be listed separately, let me know and I
will do so, but that will be the only listing you get. -- The Saint, keeper of ever-
more-complicated lists
