It is still anyone's ballgame for sure with no one jumping out to a huge lead as of
yet.  Sea Dogs took it in the shorts this turn with a rough 0-5 and welcome to
Mordraith who gets a solid 4-1 turn but a -1 score because he only fought 1
contestant and lost.

                                      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.  Biff!  Pow!  TALCAMA 
watched with glee as GHOST RIDERS TOO got knocked off top spot by ODIN'S CHOSEN!  
Hmmmph!  I always thought OF WOLF AND MAN II was an over-rated team and they proved 
it with a 0-0-0!  Up 'n down.  Up 'n down.  Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I 
think I'm gonna be...  Well, SUPERIOR FORCES 6N's 8th moved them up to 3-0-0 place.  
Some people say I ramble too much, I don't say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  
I ramble.  Well SKI-BUM 18 moved up 4, to 5th.  What's with AHIRA BANDYLEGS?  He 
actually beat TALCAMA's FROGS FORM THE SKY, and walked away with 20 more points from 
the fight.  Major screwup at WIZARDGUARD.  CHOCO BOBA BABY lost 13 points to 
DISSIDENT.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe CHOCO BOBA BABY will provide more 
easy wins...  See how the Duelmaster challenged LUROCIAN PRIDE's TAREK?  That sort of 
initiative is how she got where she is now.  Try as it might, TAREK wasn't good 
enough at persuading DIRT BATH to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Advice 
to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     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 THE GRATEFUL UNDEAD 
ain't reelin'!  CENTER FOR OLDS' mad!  What do people see in BATROY?  His 0-3-0?  
RAVENS SONG ain't talkin', but he's got 3 points.  SPARE ANCHOR expects the easy win 
by going 49 points down.  STEELE BRAIN PAN will find this a hard lesson!  I have to 
get this off my chest.  What a low dog, SPARE ANCHOR!  He can't set himself up in a 
real match.  I was sorry to see STEELE BRAIN PAN lose.  Taunt your opponent PHESA 
MURKSHADOW!  That was my lucky charm when I was unfairly challenged.  (and by 18 
points!)  DRIFTWOOD should have an easy win.  DRIFTWOOD overcame PHESA MURKSHADOW.  I 
bet DRIFTWOOD could beat two-year-olds, too.  Well, GHOST RIDERS TOO knows who to set 
their sights on.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  WILD WANDA was plum wore out after RANDGRITH pounded 'im silly 
in a Bloodfeud.  SKI-BUM 18'll have to get a little better before going after 
RANDGRITH again!  WHATAMONSTER larned his lesson (HELGA THE BLACK taught it well), 
and we right likely won't be seein' 'im fight any SKI-BUM 18 members with the same 
gusto.  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?  The 
end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Remember--a good 
fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

     There has been a run lately of personals and columns turning up in the wrong
     arenas.  When you email in something, check and make sure you have the correct
     arena number!  It's easy for a finger to slip onto the wrong key.  When the
