                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of ZUWAYZA!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Biff!  Pow!  ZUWAYZA watched with 
glee as THE MOTHERSHIP CC got knocked off top spot by VISIONS V2!  Hmmmph!  I always 
thought THE MOTHERSHIP CC was an over-rated team and they proved it with a 0-0-0!  Up 
'n down.  Up 'n down.  Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  
Well, JESSIE'S SPUDS' 2nd moved them up to 5-0-0 place.  What's with FLOOIE?  He 
actually beat ZUWAYZA's EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, and walked away with 18 more points from 
the fight.  Major screwup at VISIONS V2.  KELVIN lost 10 points to THE USEROUS 
MERCHANT.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe KELVIN will provide more easy wins... 
POCKET NEWS was reminded on the sands why DONKEY HOTAY 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.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  
ZUWAYZA thinks THE MOTHERSHIP CC and their 24-13-3 is too much!  If at first you 
don't succeed, give up...  In my day, no team with a 24-13-3 would scare me off!  
What's the problem, MAN OR BEAST??  How well I know the feeling of being the most 
challenged warrior, MISSOURI WILDLIFE!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to 
haunt you.  I hate going to the effort of writing about the kind of fights that DONT 
PAY RENT gets in.  He fights people like MISSOURI WILDLIFE, 10 points below.  I 
thought DONT PAY RENT showed great skill and promise when he was defeated by MISSOURI 
WILDLIFE.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Warriors of ZUWAYZA unite.  You have only your games to lose!  SERINGE looked 
pretty sick and surprised when she learned HAPPY REAPERS TOO is sending her to the 
Dark Arena!  Whadd'she expect with a 10-5-0?  Some people are wondering why HAPPY 
REAPERS TOO sent SERINGE (10-5-0) to the Dark Arena.  Just be glad you're not on 
their team.  Hmm...  More surprises must remain in store for me, if SHARK NORMAN can 
return from the Dark Arena.  DRAGON, with his forgettable 4-20-0,  was dealt death by 
CROSSEYES in a forgettable match.  THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS didn't seem to mind very 
much.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so 
young, so gloriously!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
All work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Missouri Wildlife -- "4th time is a charm!"  "Never give Up!  Never Surrender!"  "If
at first you don't succeed, try, try again!"  So many quotes that could be applied to
me finally beating you on the sands.  I concede the series to you, though. -- Dont
Pay Rent

Donkey Hotay -- You've gathered a 14-0 record on a quest for windmills!?!  I am so
glad that I have not contributed to that undefeated record and I can only hope I do
not do so in the future. -- Assur (windmills...)

Donkey Hotay -- I have to warn you that I am, in fact, sponsoring a wind-generator
project.  Power from windmills!  A renewable resource, and thus a good thing. --
Missouri Wildlife
P.S.  But only in a small, specific location.

Dont Pay Rent -- As usual.  You don't have your hunting license, either. -- Missouri
Wildlife

Spud with a Bone in It!  Freak of Nature!  Read all about it, story on back page. --
Pocket News

Garret -- Well, of course.  Everybody knows you can't do alchemy in a garret!  Stone
cellars, or maybe stone towers, that's what is needed. -- Alchemist's Monthly

Dab1 -- You just do that to annoy, don't you?  Everyone wants to go around talking
about how they subdued a dragon.  Well, listen, if they would let me use my breath
weapon in the arena, it would be a different story! -- Dragon

Paxton -- An unusual fellow, I see, but still, too young. -- AARP!
