                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome ZUWAYZA.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Bein' on top is great while 
it lasts, THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS.  But how many friends do you have now?  What's with 
PUTRID DEFILER?  He actually beat VISIONS V2's TREME, and walked away with 14 more 
points from the fight.  Laughs were big at KARNHORN KARNAGE while they watched PUTRID 
DEFILER clobber TREME.  He lost 7 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  HOUSE BEAUTIFUL was reminded on the sands why RAMEX is Duelmaster.  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.  
ZUWAYZA thinks VISIONS V2 and their 98-86-10 is too much!  If at first you don't 
succeed, give up...  The bums at MAN OR BEAST? couldn't face the challenges from 
VISIONS V2!  No excuse for that!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Some people are wondering why KARNHORN KARNAGE sent 
GELEB FLAMEFINGER (2-0-0) to the Dark Arena.  Just be glad you're not on their team.  
MODERN PHRENOLOGY of THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS didn't know when to quit.  When you've got 
a 15-23-0, that's a good sign.  Now he's dead.  Someone told EVERYBRIDE that MAN OR 
BEAST? never Bloodfeuded, that she'd have an easy kill.  Well, I'm sure whoever 
misled you is right sorry.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many 
skills, fight dirty.   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
ZUWAYZA is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  I don't 
want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Oh-five.  Depressing.

Ramex -- I suppose SOME people like that decorating style, but I NEVER will.
Uncouth. -- House Beautiful

Zyane -- The lumps you have forced upon me have had a remarkably negative effect on
my ability to Play Well with Others.  I now feel an overwhelming urge to walk around
the streets and alleys of Zuwayza carrying a large mallet and flattening everyone I
meet.  And as they are mostly not gladiators, I believe I can do that.  And it's all
your fault! -- Modern Phrenology

Dottle -- I suppose that kind of thing has its PLACE in the ecology, but I can't see
why. -- Mother Ghea News

Lannier -- I pity whoever ends up marrying YOU. -- Everybride

Catfish Hunter -- They tell me revenge is petty. -- Hammer Review
