                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome RIZTAB.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Biff!  Pow!  RIZTAB watched 
with glee as SWEET MAGIC got knocked off top spot by DREAMERS!  Some people say I 
ramble too much, I don't say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I ramble.  Well 
CARDS moved up 1, to 3rd.  What's with KNAVE?  He actually beat RIZTAB's WILLIE THE 
RAT, and walked away with 16 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at RIZTAB 
while they watched SHORT PETER clobber EMPEDOCLES.  He lost 8 points and got bruised 
from objects thrown from the stands.  Try as he might, LI KO THE CLUMSY wasn't good 
enough at persuading SOPHOCLES to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  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.  How well I know the feeling 
of being the most challenged warrior, DORA BELL!  Don't make idle boasts, they may 
come back to haunt you.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You 
young rapscallions, take note!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  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.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Riztab -- We have taken a few turns off to prepare for the fall tourney.  Barring the
untimely demise of our team, we shall be back and fighting next turn. -- Sea Dogs

Sophocles -- Dammit, you didn't have to DO that!  I'm going to become a Venomous
Concubine or something and go AFTER you. -- Ghost of Kissa Belle

Joy of Losing -- You may win, but you fail to convince.  If you really thought losing
was so great, you would DO losing. -- Dora Bell

Are standbys supposed to do stuff like that? -- Ghost of Fennelinda

A victory over a different standby doesn't really redress the wrong done us by Leovar
the Proud, but it's what we can do. -- Donnamira

Plus another victory over Willie the despicable Rat. -- Gaylene Vollar
