                                       TURN 8

This looks to be one of the better contests in a while with no one taking a huge lead
in the scores.  There are still a whopping 8 teams within 5 points of each other.
The leader Ghost Riders Too are only 1 point away from Odins Chosen (who took a small
hit with -1) and Run and Hyde who is steadily moving upward.  Superior Forces and
Ski-Bums both got a single point to edge them within 3 of the lead.  Another one to
mention is Sea Dogs with a big +3 jump pushing them into the positive.  On the
reverse side of positive, both the leader Ghost Riders and The Guardians took a big
-3 hit to thier scores this turn, although even at -4 The Guardians are still only 12
points away from the lead.  It's a long contest and anything can still happen and
probably will.  Good luck and keep on fighting!

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to TALCAMA once again!  Woof!  THE GRATEFUL UNDEAD were a bunch of 
dogs after OF WOLF AND MAN II got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so sweet as 1st!  
Phhbltt!  Too much drinking and too little dodging gave GHOST RIDERS TOO a 1-4-0!  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!  CENTER FOR OLDS is now ranked 8th with a 4-1-0 
turn.  It seems so recently people were saying LUROCIAN PRIDE was washed up, 
finished.  But 3-1-0 moved them up 1.  I guess they're washed no more...  What's with 
SWAIN PEAK?  He actually beat SEA DOGS' DRIFTWOOD, and walked away with 22 more 
points from the fight.  Laughs were big at THE GUARDIANS II while they watched CHAOS 
SLAYER clobber SHADERUNNER.  She lost 17 points and got bruised from objects thrown 
from the stands.  TALCAMA has a Duelmaster who doesn't sit back and get lazy.  He 
challenged LUROCIAN PRIDE's TAREK (6-2-0), which should prove (ahem!) interesting.  
I'm sure TALCAMA is excited about TAREK, the new Duelmaster from LUROCIAN PRIDE.  
(remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  Advice to fighters with a 1 
will--give up fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  The most avoided team 
was CENTER FOR OLDS.  The bums at CHAMPIONS couldn't face the challenges from CENTER 
FOR OLDS!  No excuse for that!  How well I know the feeling of being the most 
challenged warrior, ISA!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  
HELGA THE BLACK expects the easy win by going 22 points down.  ISA will find this a 
hard lesson!  HELGA THE BLACK won victory over ISA.  SKI-BUM 18 calls this fighting?  
In my day...  Maybe THE GRATEFUL UNDEAD's GRUMPY GHOUL is one of those guys who likes 
pain, or something.  That's what he'll get next week, after challenging up 34 to 
SPARE ANCHOR.  GRUMPY GHOUL bested SPARE ANCHOR (GRUMPY GHOUL getting 13 points, 
too!)--Ooh baby!  Now dat I likes!  Taunt your opponent STEELE BRAIN PAN!  That was 
my lucky charm when I was unfairly challenged.  (and by 19 points!)  DOT DOT DOT 
should have an easy win.  I have to get this off my chest.  What a low dog, DOT DOT 
DOT!  She can't set herself up in a real match.  I was sorry to see STEELE BRAIN PAN 
lose.  Fighting is a better craft than farming, ACHERON, but you have to pay your 
dues.  Being challenged by PLANKTON, 22 points above you, is dues.  PLANKTON overcame 
ACHERON.  I bet PLANKTON could beat two-year-olds, too.  Well, GHOST RIDERS TOO knows 
who to set their sights on.  WILD WANDA expects the easy win by going 18 points down. 
TOSHA will find this a hard lesson!  WILD WANDA subdued TOSHA.  SKI-BUM 18 calls this 
fighting?  In my day...   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  ELRON THE BOLD larned his lesson (AZAER taught it 
well), and we right likely won't be seein' 'im fight any OF WOLF AND MAN II members 
with the same gusto.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, 
fight dirty.   
     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.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen
