                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of ZUKAL!  Once again I've been called out of retirement for 
my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Bein' on top is great while it lasts, 
DARK WARDS.  But how many friends do you have now?  What's with BLACK PRIEST?  He 
actually beat CRIMSON DEATH's GLINDORA, and walked away with 13 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at ZUKAL while they watched AMBITIOUS GUARD clobber PORTHOS.  
He lost 13 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Apparently 
ZUKAL isn't filled with as many gutless wonders as I thought.  The Dreaded Duelmaster 
got 2 challenges this turn!  CRIMSON DEATH's hatred of DARK WARDS surfaced again as 
TRAKE DARROWS challenged ZUKAL's top dog.  TRAKE DARROWS was reminded on the sands 
why VENTRIIE is Duelmaster.  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip 
about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was 
BATTEL BLADES.  In my day, no team with a 25-15-0 would scare me off!  What's the 
problem, DARK WARDS?  Maybe CRIMSON DEATH's DEBARROWS is one of those guys who likes 
pain, or something.  That's what he'll get next week, after challenging up 32 to 
KATANA.  Who knows what was running through DEBARROWS' head, but KATANA rearranged it 
for him.  How soon will DEBARROWS make a challenge like that again?   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master 
many skills, fight dirty.   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  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.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

interesting.  Never knowing what comes next. -- Jed Tarran Dapp
P.S.  I think I should graduate.  Any time now, I should graduate.  I'm done with my
work here.

Midnight -- Black beats blue, I guess. -- Blue Streak

Katana -- I was all set to blow things sky high when... you darned near drowned me in
your bathtub. -- Blammo

Glindora -- Aha!  My great thanks for letting ME be the only gladiator on this team
to get a win.  I like that.  Sure, it would've been fine if my teammates had gotten
wins TOO, but if it was only to be one of us, ME, that's the right one. -- Blue Funk
