                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in SOLVEN since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Hmmmph!  I always thought 
CONSPIRACY INC. was an over-rated team and they proved it with a 0-0-0!  Up 'n down.  
Up 'n down.  Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, 
SHADOWRIGHT's 4th moved them up to 2-0-0 place.  It seems so recently people were 
saying JUST CHILLIN was washed up, finished.  But 4-1-1 moved them up 1.  I guess 
they're washed no more...  What's with SILVERSCALES?  He actually beat THE 
REPUBLICANS' SUPPLY SIDE, and walked away with 17 more points from the fight.  Major 
screwup at THE ZOO.  ZEBROE lost 15 points to BROOKS AND DUNN.  Some new strategies, 
perhaps?  Maybe ZEBROE will provide more easy wins...  I'm sure SOLVEN is excited 
about EASY BREEZE, the new Duelmaster from JUST CHILLIN.  (remember?)  But when 
you've seen as many as I have...  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, THE REPUBLICANS!  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at KELLUMBO'S KIDS ain't reelin'!  THE 
REPUBLICANS' mad!  What do people see in NON SEQUITUR?  Its 4-1-0?  NONSENSICAL ain't 
talkin', but it's got 25 points.  ZOOIE didn't quite know what to make of a challenge 
he received from ORON of WAY OF THE SWORD C5, who is 24 points below him.  ORON 
perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he defeated ZOOIE and ended up with 49 
recognition points.  I hate going to the effort of writing about the kind of fights 
that HARD LUCK WOMAN gets in.  She fights people like TAMMY, 8 points below.  I 
thought HARD LUCK WOMAN showed great skill and promise when she won victory over 
TAMMY.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Warriors of SOLVEN 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!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  The end 
of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want to 
overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

ATTENTION ALL YOU ALLIANCE-TYPE PEOPLE:
For the purposes of tourney newsletter alliance listings (when I am able to do them),
you may only be listed in ONE alliance.  In other words, you have to choose!  If you
are a part of Englebert's Alliance and Englebert's Alliance is "part" of Ruthrauf's
Alliance, I will list you EITHER as part of Englebert's Alliance OR as part of
Ruthrauf's Alliance, NOT both.  The default would be the top-level alliance,
Ruthrauf's, in this example.  If you'd rather be listed separately, let me know and I
will do so, but that will be the only listing you get. -- The Saint, keeper of ever-
more-complicated lists
