                                      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 
GRIM FANDANGO got knocked off top spot by SEA DOGS!  Up 'n down.  Up 'n down.  
Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, DEATH MOB 4's 
2nd moved them up to 5-0-1 place.  What's with ROCK?  He actually beat SEA DOGS' 
SURLY DECKHAND, and walked away with 25 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at 
SEA DOGS.  SURLY DECKHAND lost 17 points to ROCK.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  
Maybe SURLY DECKHAND will provide more easy wins...  Another fighter (ZIGGY WOLFSBANE 
21-12-0) challenged another Duelmaster (MAST MONKEY 12-2-1).  Life goes on.  ZIGGY 
WOLFSBANE was reminded on the sands why MAST MONKEY is Duelmaster.  I suppose you 
want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was 
NOMADIC TRIBE.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at GRIM FANDANGO ain't 
reelin'!  NOMADIC TRIBE's mad!  What do people see in BARON TONE?  His 8-8-0?  SWORD 
OPERA ain't talkin', but he's got 32 points.  I hate going to the effort of writing 
about the kind of fights that BLEDD gets in.  It fights people like DICK, 14 points 
below.  I thought BLEDD showed great skill and promise when it was subdued by DICK.  
All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  MAST MONKEY killed ZIGGY WOLFSBANE, and expects 
revenge from NOMADIC TRIBE.  The dead are better off dead--they have no worries.  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?  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.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Surly Deckhand -- Surly, Surly, Surly.  You certainly can take a licking and keep on
ticking. -- Dick

Hammett -- Your groin okay?  Sorry it was so short....  The fight that is. -- Fred

Iopia -- Girl, you taught me a lot.  My blood stains really do come out if I soak the
leather in mead.  Thanks. -- Graham

Goldenbeard -- You broke my long spear!  (and we all know how painful that can be)
Fred was right.  Your yellow chin brush really can be distracting. -- Reed

Baron Tone -- Enjoyed grappling with you once again. The fun we could have had if
only you hadn't worn me out.  Same time next turn? -- Rock

M. Butterfly -- Think I would have liked dancing with you better before you entered
the cocoon.  Now you are just too flighty. (wink) -- Rock

Merry Leona -- Our earlier communique via this forum asked if you would be our
"lady".  In truth, "lady" = "hag" where "hag" is a term of extreme endearment within
certain social circles to which we at Pentagonal Pink belong.  Our merry band of
merry men merrily ask you once again, Merry Leona...would you be our hag? -- The PP
Boys

SUNSETlers -- Recently there have been references to the performance of Pentagonal
Pink.  Some have kindly offered directions to the Dark Arena.  Considering the
respect, loyalty and affection we share for each other, the DA does not exist in our
stable.  We are family.  Our numbers may appear dismal.  Our rankings may be beyond
low.  Even so, we accept any ridicule with pride.  We may not be the best stable in
the arena, but we just might be the most committed...or should be committed.
Numerically successful or not, our unified camp will continue to defeat and be
defeated.  Just imagine the celebration should one of us miraculously become
Duelmaster.  Call us sentimental fools, but don't call us late for the party. --
Captain Billy, PP Patriarch

Monkey -- "Fall of the House of Bullwinkle" was not a good episode.  Maybe I need to
give up Monkeys and go back to pulling rabbits out of a hat.  But I thought I had you
after that first hit.  Just one more swing, that's all I needed!  But I didn't get
it.  'Grats on the throne--a nice little prize for your return from the dead. --
Bullwinkle

Xian Ping -- I must admit down-challenges leave a bad taste in my mouth.  Yours is
the only team currently here eligible for one since you are the only team to have
done it to the Tribe.  But still, I can see why Nomad normally doesn't allow them.
Distasteful things. -- Dante Furioso

Whitman -- Hadn't we done that once before with very different results?  Strat change
on your part?  If so, I don't think it was a good one.  Nice try. -- Tengri Khan

Tilt -- I must admit you made that much more difficult than I imagined.  I'm happy
with the victory, but you put up a good fight.  Plus, the win earned me my graduation
notice, so you will always be remembered for that!  But the medium shield?!  That
goes in the off-hand!  Who wants a shield as a favorite?!  If it is a "favorite"
shouldn't I get some say in that!? -- Lord Protector Ziggy "How can you beat a wolf
with a shield?" Wolfsbane

Misashi San -- Yeah, I thought that might be coming.  Nice challenge.  Perhaps I
shall get the next one. -- Ursa Minor

Vulge -- You slipped it under the door?  Your grand plan for winning the title of
Duelmaster of Sunset, the Jewel of the Delarquan Federation, was to slip a note under
a door?  Were you also going to pass notes in the stands?  Come on man!  You have to
have a better plan than that!  To help you develop an ingenious plan I have
generously (and painfully!) left the throne open for you.  Now you can try your hand
at that Monkey on the throne and try and claim your last 5 points.  Just remember--
the key will be a weapon, not a note! -- Bullwinkle

Bent Blades -- Hail and welcome to Sunset!  Drinks on us down at the Broken Bone
tonight post-fights.  Get Bent, baby!! -- Grim Fandango

Death Mob 4 -- Nice 5-0! -- Stik and G.F.

Duelmaster Mast Monkey -- I'm sorry, what??  We're hearing crickets already.... --
G.F.

Cannon Fodder -- To quote a teammate you may be familiar with...(ahem!)....
#%^&*!$%^!!!!!!! -- Nevermoor

Reed -- Hmm?  I thought you WERE persistent beggar. -- Stay Gold

Knothandler -- You could've handled that better.... -- Bledd, happy to not be doing
the bleeding this turn

Breakspere -- A-HAH!!  And a win this time!  Good thing you switched weapons! -- Stay
Gold

Salty -- That you are. -- Slythr

Nice job Sunset!  Barring the two odd Avians stuck in our newsletter, every single
warrior listed fought last turn!  Yah gotta love that sort of participation! -- Nomad
and his Tribe

Rock -- Your stolid and abrupt manner is more appropriate for a dwarf than an elf.
You are, of course, too tall for anyone but the Commission to take you for a dwarf,
even with that hirsute growth attached to what I assume would be your face if you
removed it.  (By the way, you might want to see about that removal.  Some of these
parasitic skin growths can be dangerous and cause the most unsightly scarring!)  But
you might plausibly be a Shew.  Have you considered this?  I am told there are
magicians who specialize in race-change work. -- Baron Tone

Rake -- Is that an allowed weapon?  I don't like it!  Some of the tines wobble, and
my scars won't be parallel.  If I have to have them, they should be done RIGHT.
Parallel.  Come by our guildhouse and I will demonstrate on YOUR hide. -- Rossmont
P.S.  In a way, this was a good thing.  Madam Butterfly is very annoyed, but she says
I can't POSSIBLY play a major role with this scarring.  All may even be for the best,
who knows?

Gutshot -- The very concept is revolting.  I suspect it comes of, or goes with,
drinking rotgut, which is also revolting.  (Yes, I did try it, but only one sip.  I'd
sooner drink lamp oil!) -- Merry Leona

Stay Gold -- What's the point in that, if we come off the gold standard?  I know it
doesn't make sense, but even gold can be, and will be by the perversity of the
government, devalued.  There is something to be said for having a queen:  queens
value gold and do not treat it lightly. -- Breakspere

Drim Nox -- So?  Killing houseplants isn't something to BOAST about, you know.  It's
ecologically unsound, reducing the oxygen in the house.  Oxygen is critically
important if you plan to do any thinking in your house.  Of course, some people
don't.... -- Skellia

Bullwinkle -- If the fans here do not appreciate the spectacle of a moose dancing, it
may be that they need to be educated.  How about a cameo appearance in our projected
production of (shudder) the Camel and the Pussycat? -- Djininski

Reed -- That...doesn't make a lot of sense, unless you have unusual tastes and
habits. -- Merry Leona

Captain Billy -- This is an interesting proposition.  Would you care to drop by my
place (I have a private apartment separate from the Opera Guild) so we can discuss it
in depth? -- Merry Leona
P.S.  I do like a man in uniform.

Our congratulations to Ziggy Wolfsbane. -- Jorja and the Sword Opera crew

     As threatened, here is a current manager list for this arena.  Let me know if
     I've gotten anyone's name wrong! -- The Saint, keeper of lists
