                                      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 
COSMIC FREAK OUT got knocked off top spot by GRIM FANDANGO!  Phhbltt!  Too much 
drinking and too little dodging gave IRONIC TAILS a 0-5-0!  I got a good laugh out of 
it!  Up 'n down.  Up 'n down.  Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm 
gonna be...  Well, FEVER PITCH's 10th moved them up to 2-0-0 place.  MINISTRY OF SKA 
showed SUNSET what they were made of as they fought with a vengeance to walk off with 
3-1-0.  What's with C. CANARY?  He actually beat THAT 70'S TEAM's BELL BOTTOMS, and 
walked away with 18 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at MINISTRY OF SKA 
while they watched SKA-D-LITE clobber I SEE SOUNDS.  It lost 12 points and got 
bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  SUNSET has a Duelmaster who doesn't sit 
back and get lazy.  He Dark Arena Challenged DARK ARENA's QUICKSILVER (0-0-0), which 
should prove (ahem!) interesting.  Try as he might, QUICKSILVER wasn't good enough at 
persuading I ATE A PUTY TAT 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.   
     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, GRIM FANDANGO!  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at COSMIC FREAK OUT ain't reelin'!  GRIM 
FANDANGO's mad!  What do people see in RONALD REAGAN?  His 14-13-0?  SONS OF SATAN 
ain't talkin', but he's got 102 points.  Fighting is a better craft than farming, 
ACE, but you have to pay your dues.  Being challenged by ASYLUM, 18 points above you, 
is dues.  I have to get this off my chest.  What a low dog, ASYLUM!  She can't set 
herself up in a real match.  I was sorry to see ACE lose.  BLAK MASK expects the easy 
win by going 17 points down.  FALSE PROPHET will find this a hard lesson!  BLAK MASK 
defeated FALSE PROPHET.  I bet BLAK MASK could beat two-year-olds, too.  Well, THE 
DARK PATH knows who to set their sights on.  THE HIPPY didn't quite know what to make 
of a challenge it received from SIMON COWELL of SONS OF SATAN, who is 19 points below 
it.  SIMON COWELL perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he lost to THE HIPPY and 
ended up with 43 recognition points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Hmm...  More surprises must remain in store for me, 
if I ATE A PUTY TAT can return from the Dark Arena.  Who will dare fight EXECUTIONER, 
after he returned from the Dark Arena?  (For the record 1-0-1 is 33, and has he 
points) Someone told CAT KABOB that SONS OF SATAN never Bloodfeuded, that she'd have 
an easy kill.  Well, I'm sure whoever misled you is right sorry.  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?  Are 
you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

All -- Sorry for my muteness the last couple turns, real life craziness.  I shall now
return to my usual blathering ways! -- Stik

Duelmaster Puty Tat -- Congrats on your return to the throne and your invite, you
earned it.  Now how about a farewell column! -- Grim Fandango

B. Breaker -- You broke, all right.  How I loooove beating your type! -- Drane, the
scummiest scum that ever scummed in this town!

Floyd -- How the hell'd you get The Hippy back?!??  I'm not pleased. -- Stik
P.S.  Just couldn't let me have top team for two turns, could ya!  It was nice....

Bully -- Whiff, bang, done.  Damn.  Didn't think you'd hurt a pretty lil' thing like
me! -- Dazey

Infidel -- Nice challenge, but as you can see, I'm getting better faster.  See you
and the rest of your team around.... -- Blak Mask

Metaru Yona -- Many thanks for the excellent duel and the most excellent skills! --
Skydancer

Ace -- That was just what I needed! -- Blevins, looking to get over .500

Dark Path -- You running anything besides scum??  Who's the manager behind the
stable, anyway? -- Stik and GF

Crip -- Well, I certainly hope you'll stick around for a while this time.  Sunset
needs a few more big name managers, and what better place to duel than the jewel of
the Delarquan Federation! -- Stik and GF

Ace -- Speaking for the women of Sunset, we can't help it if you guys fall over
drooling at the sight of a little leg...or hip...or midriff, or....roll your tongue
back up, son, you're embarrassing your gender! ;) -- Skydancer and Dazey of GF

Welcome back to Scragitarious and Fever Pitch.  Stop by the Broken Bone post-fights
for a free grog on us!! -- Grim Fandango

Sylvester Froth -- Congrats on your TC at the face; the gold comes home to Sunset!
Well done, Tourney Champ Desecration and all other Sunset tourney victors! -- Stik
and GF

There will be no new act in the Sword Opera today, courtesy of Gencon.  But next
time, with luck and good scheduling, maybe. -- Nick

Hi-Jinx -- I love those high kicks!  Come dance with me, beautiful woman! -- Rudi
Jamos
P.S.  Butterfly will be jealous, but who cares about that?  She can't do more than
shriek and swoop up and down cursing.  Uh...maybe pull your hair, too....

Blevins -- You think maybe you're hot spit around here because you're Fratsfan, huh?
So you're blond, who cares?  Women like us DARK guys.  Around HERE, Fratsfans are
slaves, so just WATCH OUT! -- Ace

Ronald Reagan -- (false look of surprise)  Gosh, I didn't realize that you Sons of
Satan just BORED people to death.  I am just SOOO impressed. -- Lugo Beloski
P.S.  Okay, truth in advertising or whatever, I was NOT impressed.

Animate Tofu -- What a totally revolting idea!  Not that I haven't entertained
certain dark suspicions about tofu in the past, but nothing like that.  (shudder) --
John Darling
P.S.  Somehow I thought you'd be shorter.
P.P.S.  And kind of oozy around the edges.

Flesh Gordon -- I'm new to this gladiating stuff, so if there's something I should be
saying, you'll have to clue me in. -- Djininski
P.S.  Actually, I'm not even sure I LIKE this gladiating stuff.  Maybe I should quit
while I'm alive....

Sylvester -- Dang it!  Ya got me. -- C. Canary

Sons of Satan -- I guess you should thank me for getting rid of your lousy warrior.
-- C. Canary

Minos -- Bah!  Next next time. -- C. Canary

Plump Friction -- Great fight!  Back and forth.  We should do it again. -- C. Canary

Grim Fandango -- Wow, brainless!!  You just opened up a bigger can of worms than you
can possibly handle!  A challenge down of 21 points is the move of a toothless moron!
The war is on, pal.  And since you threw the first punch, it stands to get real ugly
from here.  So stand by, freak!  Here it comes!! -- The Clan

I Ate A Putty Tat -- Nice Fight.  Glad you got the throne, and congrats on your
graduation.  Share stats if you can. -- Razor Melody

Skull Stroker -- Eh, we meet again.  You are faster than me.  At least there was good
skills for both of us.  Salute Saua. -- Liquid Goliath

Plague of Feathers -- Again a nice fight, but the results kind of suck. -- Plump
Friction

Blasphemer -- Worth a shot.  Couldn't do much worse.  Good luck. -- Pepper Bandit

False Prophet -- Be scared, by very scared of Kerry. -- Scared of Kerry

30 July 2004
The total number of fights calculated was reported as 250 fights.  This is a
