                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome ZORPUNT.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Woof!  GANG GRENE-BAX were 
a bunch of dogs after KRILL CAVALRY got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so sweet as 1st! 
What's with TIRALEA FLETE?  She actually beat ZORPUNT's EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, and walked 
away with 20 more points from the fight.  Try as he might, BILL POOLE wasn't good 
enough at persuading KING BROWN SNAKE 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.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  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.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

King Brown Snake -- Have you considered redecorating?  I mean...brown.  Blah.  Might
as well be saying, "I'm a drab, uninteresting fellow, good only for killing."  You
need bright and snazzy, maybe white with sequins or something.  Interpret your name
in the light of "king" rather than "brown," or even "snake."  Live a little. -- Bill
Poole

Stonefish -- Five skills!  Wow, I don't even MIND losing for five skills.  (Because I
don't get the skills if I die, so getting the skills means that I didn't, right?  Of
course I'm right.  Five skills....  Way to go. -- Bubba Jones

That's it?  An Embezzling Scribe comes out and tells me he knows a great investment
deal but I have to come up with the cash right away, and that's IT for my first
fight?  Because I would've creamed ANYBODY who made such a suggestion to me, wherever
we were when he made it, so it seems, I dunno, sort of wasted. -- Teri Lark

It seems wrong, somehow to beat up a guy simply because he left Mordant.  Leaving
Mordant makes SENSE.  Especially for an Aruaki, they probably put him in a zoo!  It
shouldn't be allowed. -- Mikela Poole
P.S.  And it seems, I don't know, kind of, well, it just doesn't seem RIGHT to beat
him up when he gets away and comes home.  I don't like it.

Just a reminder to all you online type people.  It is much appreciated if you send
your personals in PLAIN TEXT, rather than HTML or formatted text.  HAL, in his
infinite wisdom, doesn't DO formatting, which means having to unsnarl your personal
ads from bunches of extraneous...stuff.  So, if your e-mailer has a plain text
option, let it be your friend. -- Ed.
P.S.  Sometimes it's the formatted text which makes ads go astray.  Not often, but
sometimes.
