                                      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 EIGHTH MATE?  She 
actually beat BLUE MOON's BISBEE BLUE, and walked away with 20 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at SEA DOGS while they watched EIGHTH MATE clobber BISBEE 
BLUE.  He lost 14 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Try as 
she might, MORAVIA MAUVE wasn't good enough at persuading SEA LEGS to step down from 
the Duelmaster's throne...  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on? 
I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, places to 
go...   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  All work 
and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Sea Legs -- They're great legs, but... isn't there anything MORE to you? -- Blhu
Murther

Hollin the Mercenary -- If you'd surrendered faster, you wouldn't have had to stand
up for so long. -- Saffira

The Kung-Fu Master is incredibly rude!  The places the little pipsqueak put his
hands!  I have seldom been so shocked. -- Moravia Mauve

Yeah, and whatever places those were--I couldn't see--they inspired the guy to be
really mean to his NEXT opponent.  Ouch. -- Bisbee Blue

Eighth Mate -- What's a fine elf like you doing in a situation like that?  Let me
take you away from it all. -- Kingfisher

EPEE with a deftness and wit of nine?  Are they crazy? -- Moravia Mauve

     Yes, probably. -- Zrof One-Eye

     There has been a run lately of personals and columns turning up in the wrong
     arenas.  When you email in something, check and make sure you have the correct
     arena number!  It's easy for a finger to slip onto the wrong key.  When the
     receipt comes back, check again to be sure it went where you intended!
     Vigilance is your friend, and mine too. -- the Editor
