                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome ALJAFIR.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with WINFIELD?  It 
actually beat ALJAFIR's NORTH FORK RABBLE, and walked away with 13 more points from 
the fight.  Laughs were big at MIDDLE WAY while they watched KAIREEN LAMAR clobber 
CORNBREAD STUFFING.  She lost 1 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  What a role model for ALJAFIR's young 'uns!  ZOMBIE becomes Duelmaster, but 
don't bother to fight no more!  I'm sure ALJAFIR is excited about KAIREEN LAMAR, the 
new Duelmaster from MIDDLE WAY.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I 
have...  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team 
is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...   
     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...   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  Are 
you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

We salute the tourney participants, and turn down a cup for Junior Vasquez who met
with the ultimate in bad luck.  May the gods of his choice look with favor on him. --
Jorja and the Middle Way

Zombie -- It was with great pleasure that I defeated you, I never cared for golems,
and with even greater pleasure I leave you the duelmaster's title.  I think I'm
allergic to it. -- Alida Bern

Candied Yams -- I *told* you that the marshmallows would be your downfall, and they
*were*!  You got all soft and puffy. -- Bellona Chist

Reaper -- Listen, you!  I don't have *time* for you, I've got a *date*. -- Kaireen
Lamar

Green Beans -- And can you wonder at it?  Good green beans are delicious, but YOU!
Stale, left sitting too long somewhere until all the snap was gone, and then
overcooked.  Bleh.  I've eaten tastier string. -- Senlum Nosh

You Scream -- Well, of *course* I viciously subdued you!  What could you expect after
such a *rude* display? -- Barnum Chells

13 July 11
                                   Announcing!

          The No-Tourney ADM arena will be opening for business on the
          first of August of this year!
     It will be ADM Arena #107, making use of that idle installation down at Lirin
Kiv.  If the managers involved in this arena wish to rename it, suggestions will be
entertained through the months of August and September.
