                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in MALCORN since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Bein' on top is great 
while it lasts, TERMINUS.  But how many friends do you have now?  What's with 
LYLYANNA?  She actually beat MALCORN's KHALHUMS DWARF, and walked away with 20 more 
points from the fight.  Laughs were big at DARK CREATION while they watched WENDIGO 
clobber ZIRCON.  He lost 6 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  MOSSROCK was reminded on the sands why THE WITCH-KING 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 
TERMINUS.  In my day, no team with a 66-43-1 would scare me off!  What's the problem, 
DARK CREATION?  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, 
WIND RIDER!  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?  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, places to 
go...   
     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

Lylyanna -- You may be a dark creation, I suppose your manager would know, but on you
it looks good.  Mysterious.  Even alluring.  Come allure me privately some time, hmm?
-- Stump

The Witch-King -- Listen, you may have won that, but I've got your number know.  All
I have to do is get a knife from a barrow wight (escaping with my life, of course)
and have a sex change, and you are *toast*! -- Mossrock
P.S.  Figures you'd be left-handed

Wendigo -- Did you just *have* to do that?  I really don't like hospitals. -- Wind
Rider
P.S.  It would improve matters if you came to visit me in the hospital.
P.P.S.  Seems like one or another of us is always fighting you.  Seems a shame.

Marduk -- You damned gods!  Laugh heartlessly at the prospect of slaying me, will
you?  I suppose you think you can get away with anything just because you're a god.
But every god has enemies, bub, and I'm asking around for yours! -- Redthorn

I would have ended the fight with the Persistent Beggar quickly; I took no pleasure
in torturing him.  But he would *not* give up.  Too much persistence in the wrong
place can be a bad thing. -- Thornwood

31 May 2008
Any and all who live in the 805 area, I would like for you to call me so we can get
together for BBQ's, softball games, and so on.  It has been a while since the last
get together (several years).  It was a blast and I am sure the next one will be
also.  We just have to do it.  All alliances are welcome.  Just because my warriors
leave your warrior beaten and bloody in defeat does not mean we can't have a beer or
five together.  I'll even buy the first round.  So call 805-588-3419 and ask for Dave
a.k.a. Misfit, former member of the Green and Purple Polka Dot Alliance (GAPPDA).
