                                      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 STEELE?  He actually 
beat HEAVY METAL's XAMOT, and walked away with 14 more points from the fight.  Major 
screwup at HEAVY METAL.  XAMOT lost 11 points to STEELE.  Some new strategies, 
perhaps?  Maybe XAMOT will provide more easy wins...  BLUE HAVEN was reminded on the 
sands why TOP CAT is Duelmaster.  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty 
gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  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 -- What a trouble you are to us all. -- Blue Haven

Copy Cat -- Do you HAVE to copy what your teammate does? -- Azurita

This isn't our week.  I can tell.  First my teammates lose to those cats, and then I 
lose to a Free Orc.  It's too much. -- Steele

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

The Company of Brothers (TCB) welcomes two new members to our alliance...Liam the
Goth and Buddy Lee.  We have no doubt that they will prove to be assets to our
alliance and the general dueling community. -- Baphomet, co-founder, T.C.B.
