                                      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.  A team with purpose!  A 
team with the skill to back up their boasts!  Getting a 4-1-1 their first time out is 
DOOM BRIGADE.  What's with MALICE?  She actually beat ZUWAYZA's EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, 
and walked away with 21 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at GENTLE THINGS 
while they watched CANARY clobber TRAVEL WEEKLY.  She lost 6 points and got bruised 
from objects thrown from the stands.  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for THE 
MAGNIFICENT MAGS' outstanding member, Duelmaster HAMMER REVIEW.  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 
MAN OR BEAST?.  In my day, no team with a 188-102-13 would scare me off!  What's the 
problem, MAN OR BEAST??   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Some people are wondering why MAN OR BEAST? sent ROBIN 
WILLIAMS (2-0-0) to the Dark Arena.  Just be glad you're not on their team.  Many a 
warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
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

Three-two again.  Travely Weekly SAYS he killed the Osksi Noble in revenge for
Everybride, but I don't believe it.  HE can be annoying, too.  This new person,
Lonely Hearts, isn't as bad as I feared, but... pink?  You simply CANNOT decorate a
WHOLE HOUSE in pink.  The very idea is enough to make me bilious. -- House Beautiful
P.S.  Even her HAIR is pink!  Well, strawberry blonde, anyway.
