                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to ZUWAYZA once again!  Woof!  FUNKY FOLK were a bunch of dogs 
after THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so sweet as 1st!  What's 
with MODERN MATURITY?  It actually beat ZUWAYZA's THE USEROUS MERCHANT, and walked 
away with 20 more points from the fight.  Har har har!  Did SUE SHEE wimp out, or 
just get lazy?  Anyway, she's not Duelmaster anymore.  I can barely restrain my 
enthusiam for JAGUAR WARRIORS' outstanding member, Duelmaster ADARA AL ZAHRA.  Advice 
to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  How 
well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, SPORTS III!  Don't make 
idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover 
stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     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.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Jill Oppy -- I may not be a hot-shot carriage-mechanic, but there was no need to RUN
ME DOWN like that.  I was NOT the person who stole your tires!  It wasn't ME who
scratched your paint!  I am COMPLETELY INNOCENT here, and my insurance agent will be
calling on yours in the morning. -- Sports Ill.
P.S.  So there.

The Osksi Noble just doesn't appreciate a fast car, even when you hit him over the
head with it. -- Hot Rod
P.S.  Of course, he's a half-elf, which might explain a lot.

Theft is immature.  Anti-social.  Worthy of punishment. -- Modern Maturity
P.S.  Insufficiently remunerative.

Sue She -- Wow!  Nicely done!  I didn't think anyone here could beat me.  Master
Noachian says I'm one riposte skill away from graduating.  So I'm off to find that
last skill. -- Adara Al Zawra

Modern Maturity -- (sniffling piteously)  I was hungry, and I stole half a loaf of
bread.  It was stale, too.  I just want to live to grow up!  Why are you so mean to
me? -- Matarmal the Waif, cruelly convicted of theft

Hot Rod -- I see no reason to go heating rods.  They're effective at any temperature.
Well, so long as the temperature isn't extreme.  In fact, I am quite prepared to beat
you with one by way of demonstration.  Set a time and place, and I will be there with
a cool rod. -- Lortis of Osksi

Hot Rod -- You would make a cult of CARRIAGES?  What manner of uncultured barbarian
are you? -- Gorvwin, member in good standing of the Cult of the Hungry Wolf

Just a reminder to all you online type people.  It is much appreciated if you send
your personals in PLAIN TEXT, rather than HTML or formatted text.  HAL, in his
infinite wisdom, doesn't DO formatting, which means having to unsnarl your personal
ads from bunches of extraneous...stuff.  So, if your e-mailer has a plain text
option, let it be your friend. -- Ed.
P.S.  Sometimes it's the formatted text which makes ads go astray.  Not often, but
sometimes.
