                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to SUNSET once again!  Biff!  Pow!  SUNSET watched with glee as 
SWORD OPERA got knocked off top spot by GRIM FANDANGO!  Hmmmph!  I always thought 
CARNAGE CANARIES was an over-rated team and they proved it with a 0-0-0!  Ya gotta be 
quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the pain!  
RAGE is now ranked 10th with a 2-1-0 turn.  COSMIC FREAK OUT showed SUNSET what they 
were made of as they fought with a vengeance to walk off with 3-1-0.  What's with BAD 
ACID?  It actually beat THAT 70'S TEAM's BELL BOTTOMS, and walked away with 24 more 
points from the fight.  Laughs were big at GRIM FANDANGO while they watched BLAK MASK 
clobber PEPPER BANDIT.  He lost 14 points and got bruised from objects thrown from 
the stands.  Try as she might, SKA-D-LITE wasn't good enough at persuading THE 
BUTCHER to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Wouldn't it be nice to have 
live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted 
prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  The most avoided team 
was KILL AT WILL.  In my day, no team with a 22-20-5 would scare me off!  What's the 
problem, GRIM FANDANGO?  What do people see in RUDI JAMOS?  His 23-21-0?  SWORD OPERA 
ain't talkin', but he's got 90 points.  EMNITY expects the easy win by going 17 
points down.  RUDE BUDDHA will find this a hard lesson!  EMNITY defeated RUDE BUDDHA. 
I bet EMNITY could beat two-year-olds, too.  Well, MINISTRY OF SKA knows who to set 
their sights on.  LIQUID GOLIATH didn't quite know what to make of a challenge he 
received from STELLA ARTOIS of REAL BEER, who is 24 points below him.  STELLA ARTOIS 
perhaps got hers just desserts, seeing as she was overcame by LIQUID GOLIATH and 
ended up with 40 recognition points.   
     Warriors of SUNSET unite.  You have only your games to lose!  MIRANDA GRACE of 
SWORD OPERA didn't know when to quit.  When you've got a 12-21-1, that's a good sign. 
Now she's dead.  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?  All 
work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Dazey -- It's ok, you don't owe me anything for the lesson. -- Infidel

C. Canary -- I suppose that if you had broken my other shield you might have had a
slim chance of winning.  On the other hand, if monkeys had flown out of your butt and
attacked me you would have won too.  Neither one happened so I won. -- Heretic

Iron Tails -- Thanks for the welcome. -- Master Tazo, Mgr. The Dark Path

Persiana Ska D'lite -- You haven't even taken the time to dance with me and you call
me all these names?  Hey look, don't get all riled up at me because your manager has
decided to be a big jerk.  I know that our styles lend the win to you pretty much on
a plate.  I would be more than happy to meet you on the sands if it will make you
feel better.  Why not go for the duelmastership instead though? -- Emnity

Rude Booty -- Your true colors are finally showing, you rude little dancing machine.
Thank you for oking the feud.  (heh)  I don't know what I would have done without
your blessings in said endeavor.  I will do my best to make some small impression on
your warriors when I can.  "The world according to Myrdrin."  It's actually spelled
Myrdin but I am sure you misspelled it in your excitement to finally be rude and live
up to your moniker.  This is a start but I am looking forward to much more rudeness
coming from the likes of you, it lends a smile to my face every time I see you
talking schmack, warm fuzzies and a gentle tear wells up in my eye even.  I am glad I
have been able to return the favor and contribute to your own mirth and as far as
getting your attention, I think that I have done quite well in getting your
attention, now can I keep it?  Hmm...let's see what to do, what to do...two total
parries vs. a lunger and an aimed blow.... -- Myrdin

Persiana -- You can change your name but mine will stay the same.  Let us see how
well you do against me when we play this silly game.  Best of luck to you and I hope
your skill outshines your beauty. :) -- Rogan Stormchilde

Toadlicker -- The very idea is disgusting. -- Ace

Liquid Goliath -- You've got a mean slosh-and-splash routine there. -- Lugo Beloski

C. Canary -- Er, I didn't really MEAN to say you were funny.  One of the ushers was
holding up the cue card, I noticed it, and the statement just popped out.  I wasn't
laughing. -- Rudi Jamos

I See Sounds -- Why not just hear them?  Wouldn't it be less trouble? -- Miranda
Grace

Dazey -- Were I not a golem (and who did THAT, I wonder?) I would admire the symmetry
of your form and various other points. -- John Darling

Ed. -- Ah?  Hmm, I would never have guessed.  Folding screens and shadow plays...
could be interesting.  It'd all be a question of the dramatic gesture and sinister
voice, wouldn't it?  Hmm, I could get into that.  Thanks for clearing it up. -- Lugo
Beloski

     Always happy to help. -- Ed.

Cat Kabob -- Heh, heh.  Nice try and thanks for the skills. -- Razor Melody

Lug Beloski -- I thought you would be a much more terrifying villain than that with
all your kills. -- Liquid Goliath

Blasphemer -- "... and you will know my name is the lord, when I lay my vengeance
upon thee." -- Plump Friction

Ron Ron Clou -- A pleasure doing business with you, sir. -- Pepper Bandit

Little Fujiko -- You found my secret.  Sniff, sniff. -- Belly Jelly

12 July 2004
All Readers -- Due to the pressures resulting from preparing for and dealing with the
Face to Face, no spotlights will be written until it's over. -- the Scribe

I am currently trying to put together a favorites chart for AD warriors.  I
desperately need help with this.  What I need are style, favorite rhythm (ex.:
hi/low), favorite weapons, and tactics.  What would be great is if you could send me
a copy of the invite with the warrior's name, id#, and arena blacked out.  This way,
I can verify that this is an actual warrior.  Minis will work, too!

For those interested, I have both a challenge style vs. style and a match-up style
vs. style chart.  There's about 250 fights calculated in these charts, and I'll be
happy to send a copy to anyone who asks.  You can contact me (if you're a free world
player) at: Rick Stringer, Merit/East, SCI, P.O. Box 500, Georgetown, DE 19947-0500.
If you're in prison, just send a diplo to:  Baphomet, Mgr. Knights Templar (568), DM
#47--North Fork.  (I also have a lot of other charts and info for anyone who wants
it.)  Thanks!
