                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to MALCORN once again!  What's with MGR THE MAGICIAN?  He actually 
beat TERMINUS' PHOBETOR, and walked away with 20 more points from the fight.  Laughs 
were big at TERMINUS while they watched HAVOC clobber BADGER.  He lost 14 points and 
got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Try as he might, TAEDIUM wasn't 
good enough at persuading NO RAIN to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  
Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is 
looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  The 
most avoided team was CRUCIAL TAUNT.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at 
TERMINUS ain't reelin'!  CRUCIAL TAUNT's mad!  What do people see in SNOWFOOT?  His 
8-14-0?  GREENWARDENS ain't talkin', but he's got 38 points.  I hate going to the 
effort of writing about the kind of fights that THE DARK KNIGHT gets in.  He fights 
people like SNOWFOOT, 8 points below.  I thought THE DARK KNIGHT showed great skill 
and promise when he subdued SNOWFOOT.  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?  STOLEYOURSPOT looked pretty sick and surprised when he learned 
BASH BROS PARKING is sending him to the Dark Arena!  Whadd'he expect with a 14-6-0?  
Some people are wondering why BASH BROS PARKING sent STOLEYOURSPOT (14-6-0) to the 
Dark Arena.  Just be glad you're not on their team.  NO RAIN killed TAEDIUM, and 
expects revenge from TERMINUS.  The dead are better off dead--they have no worries.  
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

Loved the spotlight, whoever printed that...  Very funny take on my warrior's name.
-- Assur

     I think it was hal.

No Rain -- Assur would have said very nasty things about you had you actually killed
me, but all is good.  Enjoy your reign, because you got the spot that time! --
StoleYourSpot

StoleYourSpot graduates with masters in Attack and Initiative and an advanced expert
in Defense.  Faves of MO/VH SS are enough to make me keep running him at least for
awhile -- Assur
P.S.  I'll be leaving Malcorn, but who knows how the RUGs will treat me and even if
they do their worst, I could bring another team here some day.

Looks like hal got the due date for this newsletter wrong!

We congratulate StoleYourSpot.  May you find the perfect parking place and lay
permanent claim to it. -- Jorja and the Greenwardens

For the rest, we went one-four and are not celebrating.  Our punishment for doing so
badly is to shovel snow.  Not that Jorja's into punishment as such, but she says the
snow needs moving, and since we "aren't good for anything else," we can do it. --
Badger, for the Greenwardens
