                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in ALJAFIR since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with BRADLEY?  He 
actually beat MIDDLE WAY's ALIDA BERN, and walked away with 10 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at THE GENERALS.  HANNABLE lost 16 points to FRATSFA SLAVE.  
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe HANNABLE will provide more easy wins...  I can 
barely restrain my enthusiam for MIDDLE WAY's outstanding member, Duelmaster GRISHORT 
HURM.  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?  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every 
day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
ALJAFIR is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time for 
my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

I'd leave the title to Dugald Hammerhand, Khalhums (or somewhere) Dwarf, if the
Commission would allow it.  But they won't, so I won't.  Life is full of unfairness.
-- Yarek Zurn

Huh.  Yarek lost to the Dwarf, I beat the Kung-Fu Master, *I* should be duelmaster.
Damned silly rules. -- Grishort Hurm

The Kung-Fu Master seems to be having an off-day.  Not a problem.  Though I might, if
I were inclined to argue, point out to Grishort that I, too, defeated the Kung-
Fusiast.  And *I* have a winning record.  Therefore *I* should be duelmaster, if
anyone is.  But since I'm graduating, that is no longer an issue with me. -- Salara
Lormin

Cult Members are fools. -- Alida Bern

The North Fork Rabble's a fool, too. -- Zebd Arvin
P.S.  Or they are fools, depending on how many you're talking about.

                                  LAST WEEK'S FIGHTS

SALARA LORMIN devastated M. CHARDINEE in a 2 minute mismatched fight.
