                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of TOBIR!  Once again I've been called out of retirement for 
my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with SCRUFF?  He actually beat 
NO-HALF STEPPING's SHOWSTOPPER, and walked away with 17 more points from the fight.  
Laughs were big at THE DOGHOUSE while they watched TIPAR KUROO clobber CLOWN.  He 
lost 10 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  What a role 
model for TOBIR's young 'uns!  DANISH PASTRY becomes Duelmaster, but don't bother to 
fight no more!  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for THE DOGHOUSE's outstanding 
member, Duelmaster SCRUFF.  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?  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, 
fight dirty.   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
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

Showstopper -- Listen, what's the point in that?  I keep hearing people say "the show
must go on," and you want to stop it?  Really confusing, you know?  I'm just an old
dog, and it's beyond me.  So you do whatever you figure you should, and I'll just lie
here in the sun and relax. -- Scruff

Codecracker -- What kind of cracker is that?  (sniff, sniff)  Smells like...cheese,
maybe.  Well, that's fine, I like cheese.  But...is that fish?  I'm not so sure about
fish, I knew a dog once that CHOKED on a fishbone!  Which has got to be something
really bad, because bones are mostly great things.  Do you have any bones handy?  I
do like bones. -- Whole Mutt

100% -- (recoiling)  Of COURSE I didn't steal my daddy's armor.  He was a low dog
(mostly dachshund, I think), and his armor wouldn't have fit me, on account of mom
being a great dane. -- Tipar Kuroo
P.S.  You think it can't happen?  She was lying down taking a nap when dad snuck up
on her.

No Honest Merchant would fight like that, he must be secretly Userous. -- Echanosarah
the Deeply Suspicious

Enemy Combatant -- Ha!  A cat!  I knew it.  (growl, snap, nip-and-jump, snap, grip-
and-shake, proudly dragging his opponent around by the ankle)  Ah!  I know what to do
with a cat! -- Ginkor

I have not been receiving my physical turns in a reliable manner lately.  If there
are diplos with the turns that go missing, they're gone for good.  So if you send me
a diplo and do not see an acknowledgement of receipt in the personals, know that I
have not gotten it (yet).  If you have email, contact me at Livia AT reality DOT com.
If you don't have email, keep trying with the diplos.  We are working on this
problem. -- the Scribe/Jorja/Leeta
P.S.  If you email me, put "Re DM" on the subject line.
