                                      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.  Biff!  Pow!  SOLVEN 
watched with glee as JUST CHILLIN got knocked off top spot by KELLUMBO'S KIDS!  Ya 
gotta be quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the 
pain!  TEAM COUNTRY is now ranked 4th with a 2-3-0 turn.  Some people say I ramble 
too much, I don't say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I ramble.  Well THE 
REPUBLICANS moved up 1, to 2nd.  What's with JOHN ROBERTS?  He actually beat TEAM 
COUNTRY's COUNTRY, and walked away with 13 more points from the fight.  Major screwup 
at TEAM COUNTRY.  COUNTRY lost 10 points to JOHN ROBERTS.  Some new strategies, 
perhaps?  Maybe COUNTRY will provide more easy wins...  Try as he might, NOBLE 
ASSASSIN wasn't good enough at persuading UP to step down from the Duelmaster's 
throne...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, THE 
REPUBLICANS!  In my day, no team with a 471-461-27 would scare me off!  What's the 
problem, KELLUMBO'S KIDS?  What do people see in FROZEN FANNY?  Hers 16-23-1?  JUST 
CHILLIN ain't talkin', but she's got 72 points.  Fighting is a better craft than 
farming, FROZEN FANNY, but you have to pay your dues.  Being challenged by DONNETTA, 
29 points above you, is dues.  DONNETTA beat FROZEN FANNY.  I bet DONNETTA could beat 
two-year-olds, too.  Well, JUST CHILLIN knows who to set their sights on.  I hate 
going to the effort of writing about the kind of fights that GRANDPA RAT gets in.  He 
fights people like OH WELL, 12 points below.  I thought GRANDPA RAT showed great 
skill and promise when he subdued OH WELL.  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.  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover 
stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
All work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Country -- Good to finally see some new blood...err new faces in Solven.  I sent a
few "welcome back" challenges your way.  Hope you have fun. -- Kellumbo

All -- The contest Judge and I had at the start of the year was great fun.  With a
few new people in the arena, maybe we can figure out a contest we can have.  I am
open to ideas, especially ones that involve Judge's guys dying.  :) -- DK

Up -- I simply refuse to think that I need more than one back-up against you.  I
think that fight was going to be close till I broke that second weapon.  Lucky you.
--Donnetta

John Roberts -- Looks like I need to learn just a few more parry skills.  Well done.
-- Tashell

Frozen Fanny -- Just trying to keep you away from our TP.  Nothing personal. --
Grandpa Rat

All -- I support Vendetta Cartel's observation of The Dark Knights!  If war is
declared on V.C. by The Dark Knights, then war is also declared on The Dark Knights
of the Desolate Empire by The Avengers of Light!  We have been quietly awaiting such
a chance to expose ourselves (all interested parties contact me c/o The Barbarians:
DM 31, Attn: Timothias)!  Come, Vendetta Cartel, let us show these broke-down
"Knights" what true warriors are! -- Gemini Goldphoenix, Overlord of The Avengers of
Light
