                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of MALCORN!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Up 'n down.  Up 'n down.  Rankings 
always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, DR. SEUSS' 3rd moved them 
up to 3-2-0 place.  What's with CAT IN THE HAT?  It actually beat BLOODSWORN's 
ASHENRAGE, and walked away with 17 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at 
STARBASE 5.  INDEMOS lost 8 points to PATTERSON PINE.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  
Maybe INDEMOS will provide more easy wins...  Apparently MALCORN isn't filled with as 
many gutless wonders as I thought.  The Dreaded Duelmaster got 4 challenges this 
turn!  Another fighter (STRADA 12-5-0) challenged another Duelmaster (CHARISMATIC 
33-25-0).  Life goes on.  Try as he might, STRADA wasn't good enough at persuading 
CHARISMATIC to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Advice to fighters with a 1 
will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was 
MEAT MARKET.  In my day, no team with a 54-65-4 would scare me off!  What's the 
problem, DARK CREATION?  LOTRUAXE of BLOODSWORN knows how to pick 'em.  He challenged 
JESSALIN of GREENWARDENS who is up by 21.  Now was this a wise move?  LOTRUAXE 
perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he was overcame by JESSALIN and ended up 
with 42 recognition points.  I hate going to the effort of writing about the kind of 
fights that HOMUNCULUS gets in.  He fights people like DEGALONIAN RUK, 15 points 
below.  I thought HOMUNCULUS showed great skill and promise when he subdued 
DEGALONIAN RUK.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     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.  
The end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Jessalin -- Uuuhhh...Uuhhuh...Huuhh? -- Somnambulant" is the more archaic version,
"One who is infected with the virus Solanum," believed to be the progenitor of the

Indemos -- While I avenged the death of a great warrior, Xane Reaver, I learned one
very important lesson; maybe I am not as skilled as I thought with the quarterstaff.
We are well met. -- Slayver

Degalonian Rok -- Please, do not be discouraged.  Always remember, Homunculus, is

Lotruaxe -- I take what you might call a professional interest in axes, but I don't

to the roots, eh?  But maybe, just maybe, a little too far back? -- Tree Shadow

Butcher -- What is this, shoe leather?  It SAYS "round steak," but it doesn't look
round to ME.  And who taught you to cut up a chicken?  What the HECK kind of piece is
this?  And listen, if I wanted to eat your thumb, I'd have you cut if off, but it
isn't even CLEAN, so get it off the scales! -- Jessalin

Tender Loin -- Nope, can't do it in a no-stick skillet, gotta have at least a half-
inch of fat to fry it up properly.  Otherwise the breading is just blah. -- Patterson

Filet Mignon -- Very tasty, very tender.  Not really manly, though. -- Hob L. D'Hoy

Baby Back Ribs -- That's gross. -- Periwinkle

The Dark Knights sat at the Dark Table with grim faces.  All present knew that there
could be no quarter.  The Forces of Desolation would be unleashed.  There would be no
turning back, no mercy and no hesitation to do what was necessary.  Teeth gritted and
knuckles whitened with fury as the IMPERIAL PROCLAMATION was signed by each Dark
