                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of ARUAK CITY!  Once again I've been called out of 
retirement for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Ya gotta be quick on yer 
feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the pain!  THE ASSEMBLY is 
now ranked 3rd with a 4-1-0 turn.  What's with PARAGON?  He actually beat BULLDOGS' 
BULL MOOSE, and walked away with 22 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at 
THE ASSEMBLY while they watched PARAGON clobber BULL MOOSE.  He lost 17 points and 
got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  ANIMAL FARM's hatred of THE 
HITCHHIKERS surfaced again as ROSE ROOSTER challenged ARUAK CITY's top dog.  I can 
barely restrain my enthusiam for ANIMAL FARM's outstanding member, Duelmaster ROSE 
ROOSTER.  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow 
fighters?  Tough!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  How 
well I know the feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of 
practive, THE HITCHHIKERS!  In my day, no team with a 83-75-3 would scare me off!  
What's the problem, BULLDOGS?  How well I know the feeling of being the most 
challenged warrior, TAPIK!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  
COWABUNGA! didn't quite know what to make of a challenge he received from SHADOW 
MEERKAT of FURRY FURY, who is 23 points below him.  SHADOW MEERKAT perhaps got his 
just desserts, seeing as he beat COWABUNGA! and ended up with 56 recognition points.  
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting 
younger every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  All 
work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

do. -- Woof Woof

at the tavern, and blood on the sand! -- Froot E Bowl, mgr The Assembly

Dog's Life -- I think you got our dance steps wrong, it's supposed to go... you hit me

-- Jadow

Kyler Snee -- Nice fight, I'm sure we'll be doing it again soon. -- Esterbrook

Cult Members are easy, and it gives me the only win on the team today.  Works for me. 
-- Georgie Boy

Benjy Mouse -- I don't like mice, okay?  One ran across my cradle when I was a kid, 
and they give me a grue ever since. -- Wilbert Frue

Esterbrook -- Oh... I guess that's what they mean when they say I've got to "pay my 
dues," huh?  I don't like it. -- Kyler Snee
