                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in ZUWAYZA since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with HEMLOCK?  It 
actually beat MONOPOLY's WATER WORKS, and walked away with 17 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at MONOPOLY.  FREE PARKING lost 13 points to DESERT PLANTS.  
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe FREE PARKING will provide more easy wins...  
HAIR IN SINK was reminded on the sands why ERIC CARTMAN 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 
CUNNING RUNTS.  In my day, no team with a 140-87-4 would scare me off!  What's the 
problem, BASH BRO HOUSEMATE?  What do people see in COOKING LITE?  His 14-8-2?  THE 
MAGNIFICENT MAGS ain't talkin', but he's got 91 points.  Fighting is a better craft 
than farming, THE ENQUIRER, but you have to pay your dues.  Being challenged by DID 
NOT FLUSH, 16 points above you, is dues.  DID NOT FLUSH overcame THE ENQUIRER.  I bet 
DID NOT FLUSH could beat two-year-olds, too.  Well, THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS knows who to 
set their sights on.  I hate going to the effort of writing about the kind of fights 
that BLIZZARD gets in.  She fights people like NAPOLEON, 12 points below.  I thought 
BLIZZARD showed great skill and promise when she subdued NAPOLEON.  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?  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You 
young rapscallions, take note!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
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

Eric Cartman -- It is with my utmost thanks that I attend your send off to the Isle
of the Eye!  197 Recognition Points, wow!  I have greatly enjoyed our bouts, though
you clearly have my number.  Assur says now it is time to focus on my own invite and
award of immortality.  You've been a great teacher and though it isn't enough for me
to earn a spot on Assur's upcoming tourney roster, it should be enough to gather 5
wins quickly.  Perhaps we'll one day meet again. -- Milk is Out

The Enquirer -- I've now enjoyed 7 editions and I'm hooked.  Most people call you
trash, but I have to say otherwise.  I realize that not everything printed in your
pages is always an exact representation of truth, but that is okay, too.  Fiction is
quite entertaining.  Especially when doing business. -- Did Not Flush

Did Not Flush!  Failure of Sanitary Practices Threatens City with Plague!  Story on
page one! -- The Enquirer
P.S.  Hey, this can be serious, you know.

Mini Me -- Perhaps if I strip you of skills, it will be possible to reduce your girth
to a reasonable size? -- Cooking Lite

Free Parking -- I shall scatter your "parking lot" with caltrops.  The seeds of
Tribulis terrestris, you know.  Nasty things, introduced, of course, not native, but
they have their uses. -- Desert Plants

Shortline -- That isn't Art, it's just TECHNOLOGY.  Bah. -- Art of the World

Kim Jong-Il -- Ah, you're... a Shewish runt? -- Magic Today
P.S.  I didn't really expect that "buddha's hand" strike to work, amazing that it
did.

Our relieved congratulations to Eric Cartman. -- Jorja and the Magnificent Mags

27 September 10
Note -- We are still looking for additional teams in Arvat, DM 32.  I still have a
number of good team rollups available FREE for whoever wants one.
     Contact the Devil Advocates ASAP to join the fun!  You can either reach me by
diplo or on the RSI site.
     Also, whoever sent me the diplo with no name on it requesting a rollup /
information on how to get into Arvat, I'm embarassed to admit that the diplo slipped
out of my folder and was lost.  Please just send me another one with your mailing
address and I'll get a rollup to you ASAP.  Sorry about that!
