                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome ZUWAYZA.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with AARP!?  It 
actually beat ZUWAYZA's EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, and walked away with 20 more points from 
the fight.  Laughs were big at ZUWAYZA while they watched FRATSFA SLAVE clobber 
BALTIC AVE.  She lost 16 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  
MISSOURI WILDLIFE was reminded on the sands why WATER WORKS 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.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, MONOPOLY!  The bums 
at SEINFELD couldn't face the challenges from MONOPOLY!  No excuse for that!   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, 
fight dirty.   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  The end 
of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want to 
overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Dragon -- As always, your pages are full of wisdom! -- Dont Pay Rent

Assur -- Yes, and there were many other play-by-mail games advertised, too.  Fallen
by the wayside now.  Are any others left at all? -- Dragon

Vandal -- Perhaps you would get along better with charlie-horses if you gave them
more respect.  Charles-horses.  Everyone needs respect. -- AARP!

Dont Pay Rent -- I'm sulking. -- Dragon

Water Works -- Aaaagh!  You're always DOING that, taking an innocent valley that is
the only home to, let us say, the rare Sapphire-Throated Wood Sparrow or the
endangered Zebra-Striped Tree Frog, and putting a DAMN across it!  Flooding it out!
Aaaagh! -- Missouri Wildlife

Bella Donna -- You're too young for me.  I prefer women with some mileage on them. --
AARP!

Uncle Leo -- I knew I had it right that time!  My potion turned you into a pussycat.
-- Alchemist's Monthly

Extradition!  Bounty Hunter Captures Mordant Deserter!  Deserter to Be Returned to
Mordant!  Request for Asylum Denied!  Interview and story on page 3. -- Pocket News

Trickster -- Of all the times I forget to wear my crash helmet... note to self:
strap on the skid lid first. -- Vandal

Taxes Due -- Thanks for being available for my challenge.  I'm after top-tier
recognition; so, since I've been wondered by another manager whether I was a scout, I
thought I'd make myself obvious to be on the sands to win by honor of my style's
prowess (armorless).  You were a bit much for me this early in my development; but I
survived, so I'll hope to match up late down the line.  Congrats. -- T'ai-ku

Cosmo -- I tell my manager, "Let Drago fight his own way."  Manager tells Drago, "You
need to work on your defenses."  I tell manager, "Defenses?  That's not how Drago was
trained in Mother Frafrejan Empire.  You want sometone to defend, perhaps you should
have hired a total parry."  Hey Cosmo, maybe Drago get us rematch contract in June...
fighting fight of Mother Frafrejan Empire. -- Drago

Tambone -- Well, Lady Ratani, we swapped the blood of the Bloodfued that I was
obligated to seek.  No harm, no foul; good fight... between you and me, though, I
could've used that learn I got out of it "earlier." -- Krush

AARP! -- Who's your mama, 'ole timer!?  (This is where you say, "You are Mistress
Pretty Lady.") -- Belladonna
