                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of ZUWAYZA!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  A team with purpose!  A team with 
the skill to back up their boasts!  Getting a 5-0-2 their first time out is MOM'S 
STUFF.  What's with PHONOGRAPH?  It actually beat ZUWAYZA's EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, and 
walked away with 22 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at MAN OR BEAST? 
while they watched WALTER PIDGEON clobber MR MONEY BAGS.  He lost 10 points and got 
bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  ZUWAYZA has a Duelmaster who doesn't 
sit back and get lazy.  It challenged MONOPOLY's FREE PARKING (20-25-2), which should 
prove (ahem!) interesting.  FREE PARKING was reminded on the sands why HEMLOCK is 
Duelmaster.  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  The most avoided team 
was THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS.  The bums at MAN OR BEAST? couldn't face the challenges 
from THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS!  No excuse for that!  How well I know the feeling of being 
the most challenged warrior, FREE PARKING!  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.  Who will dare fight MANLY, after he returned from 
the Dark Arena?  (For the record 1-0-1 is 33, and has he points) 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.  ZUWAYZA 
is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Remember--a good 
fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen
