                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in TALCAMA since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Phhbltt!  Too much 
drinking and too little dodging gave SKA ROBOT ARMY a 1-1-0!  I got a good laugh out 
of it!  Ya gotta be quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  
Block out the pain!  BURN N' PILLAGE is now ranked 7th with a 1-0-0 turn.  Some 
people say I ramble too much, I don't say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I 
ramble.  Well PENTARCHIE-18 moved up 2, to 6th.  What's with TREY ROMBLE?  He 
actually beat THUNDR + LITENING's SCATHING, and walked away with 25 more points from 
the fight.  Major screwup at THUNDR + LITENING.  SCATHING lost 20 points to TREY 
ROMBLE.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe SCATHING will provide more easy wins... 
CATAPHASIA was reminded on the sands why BOTHACH is Duelmaster.  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.  The most avoided team was 
CENTER FOR OLDS.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at WIZARDGUARD ain't 
reelin'!  CENTER FOR OLDS' mad!  What do people see in HOFFA?  His 19-29-0?  
ARROGANCE ain't talkin', but he's got 86 points.  SHEWISH WHALER expects the easy win 
by going 31 points down.  TOE PUPPET will find this a hard lesson!  SHEWISH WHALER 
subdued TOE PUPPET.  SEA DOGS calls this fighting?  In my day...  Keep challenging up 
29 points, PAPA ROTZI, and I won't have to write about you much longer.  JB BLAH 
always accepts those kind of challenges...  Sometimes what you expect to do (like in 
the fights) doesn't expect to turn out like you thought.  PAPA ROTZI defeated JB 
BLAH.  It don't make sense.  I hate going to the effort of writing about the kind of 
fights that CHOCO BOBA BABY gets in.  She fights people like NULN, 9 points below.  I 
thought CHOCO BOBA BABY showed great skill and promise when she beat NULN.  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?  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, places to 
go...   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  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

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).
