                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome SUNSET.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Phhbltt!  Too much drinking 
and too little dodging gave D.R.I. a 0-0-0!  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, SWORD OPERA's 1st moved them up to 4-1-0 place.  What's with SUPPURATING 
CORPSE?  She actually beat KANO CLAN's MATSUDA KAO, and walked away with 19 more 
points from the fight.  Laughs were big at SWORD OPERA while they watched DJININSKI 
clobber TUSK.  He lost 11 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands. 
I can barely restrain my enthusiam for SWORD OPERA's outstanding member, Duelmaster 
ACE.  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow 
fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  The most avoided team 
was KANO CLAN.  The bums at GRIM FANDANGO couldn't face the challenges from KANO 
CLAN!  No excuse for that!  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged 
warrior, DJININSKI!  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 SCYTHE gets in.  He 
fights people like XAPHAN, 8 points below.  I thought SCYTHE showed great skill and 
promise when he overcame XAPHAN.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Warriors of SUNSET unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Is it my 
imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so 
gloriously!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
SUNSET 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

One Armed Bandit -- Good to see you here!  Have fun and congrats on the T.V.! --
Toker, Equites Virtues (535)

Djininski -- Hey, nothing personal, o.k.? -- Arturius

Reaganomics -- That was a little dicier than I was expecting...ah, who am I kidding,
it's ME we're talking about!  How 'bout those learns, eh?  I think we should have
another go, what say?!??  Well, you don't have much of a choice, do you?  Heh, heh...
unless you wuss out and start ducking.  Don't think you will, though.... -- Bonedust
P.S.  Your trickle-down theory sucked!

Damion -- Funny, I threw a couple challenges your way as well, and none of them went
through!  Just glad I got the better end of that random matchup. -- Stik

Sweet, a couple free fights for Christmas!! -- Stik

Couch Slouch -- My DEAR girl, that may work in the arena, but the effect on your
posture!  Horrid.  Straighten up.  A woman who can stand well can move well, and a
woman moving well is a delight to the eye. -- Djininski

Horace -- (with an y-curled lipp)  I fere your brainne is o'er heated. -- Breakspere

M. Chardinee -- Bah.  You're worthless. -- Duckbert

M. Chardinee -- Pig! -- Ace the unimaginative

Doozie Bastnado -- You are, indeed, abysmal.  Go hold your head in a bowl of water!
-- Diva Nashona

Burm'n'hamm -- Why?  Come to some place where everyone talks with disgusting detail
and pleasure of eating HUMAN with orange sauce! -- Duckbert the incensed

Calpurnia -- You are better than your record.  Keep tryin'!. -- Arabesque

Azrael -- You should be dead!  You've got some good defenses there!  We'll have to
fight again! -- Malori Brood

Diva Nashona -- All right, you got the better of me.  Next time I'm going to hurt
you! -- Doozie Bastnado

Soltice -- Now you know why I am a Candidate for the Dark Arena! -- Anan Yauyos

Sundog -- You gave up too soon!  I wasn't done with you.  I'll save a death blow for
ya. -- Max Rage

Sunset -- We are back!  But we're still Abysmal.  But improving every day! --
Noachian, mgr. The Abysmals

Stik -- The Servants are back!  May the blades of Kjarran taste your blood! --
Noachian, mgr. The Abysmals, Servant of Kjarran

Az -- I'm glad to see you aren't going anywhere.  I love sharing arenas with you!  Oh
yea, the avoids, I expected some downchallenging! (grin) -- Toker

Damion -- You talk about coming back and killing.  Well, it seems you accomplished
your goal!  Too bad it was on the most promising warrior I had on my stable.  Oh
well, easy come, easy go!  I don't know if it will do me any good, but I will be
sending a B.F. at you! -- Toker, mgr. Equites Virtus (535)

All -- Arturius was a ST.  11-11-14-17-15-5-11, blessed with Great Damage.  Still
young in his career so didn't learn too many skills.  About 2.9 a fight.  He was fun
to run, even if he didn't last long! -- a mourning Toker
