The Kung-Fu Master, Bendiso of Osksi, did his best by the arena and the general body of gladiators, but when matched with one of his own style actually carrying a sword, he was not up to the job. So it goes. I salute his attempt. Kerman Jones SPY REPORT Much has changed in ZORPUNT since last I was here. Never fear, Olaf Modeen adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters. MINGALOIDS showed ZORPUNT what they were made of as they fought with a vengeance to walk off with 3-0-0. What's with WENDELL? He actually beat MEDAL OF HONOR A3's DA2, and walked away with 22 more points from the fight. Laughs were big at ZORPUNT while they watched KUNG-FU MASTER clobber TRAVIS T FLETE. He lost 18 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands. Try as he might, KUNG-FU MASTER wasn't good enough at persuading KERMAN JONES 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. If at first you don't succeed, avoid. That'll get you in the Spyreports. A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing. Some fighters don't accept this. The best do. Here's some advice: study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty. Who knows what the future holds for a warrior. More fights, there's no doubt. The end of another Spyreport! That's cause for celebration in my book! I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen DUELMASTER W L K POINTS TEAM NAME KERMAN JONES 4745 13 5 0 100 KRILL CAVALRY (403) CHAMPIONS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME TRAVIS T FLETE 4728 21 7 3 78 KRILL CAVALRY (403) CHALLENGER ADEPTS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME MANUEL PEREZ 4759 4 1 1 63 MEDAL OF HONOR A3 (488) ADEPTS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME ASH LEELA 4749 4 0 0 51 MINGALOIDS (486) MIRESSEA POOLE 4744 13 8 1 48 KRILL CAVALRY (403) CHALLENGER INITIATES W L K POINTS TEAM NAME FRANK PEREGORY 4757 4 1 0 28 MEDAL OF HONOR A3 (488) BABY KARLIE 4750 2 2 0 28 MINGALOIDS (486) DA1 4758 4 1 1 27 MEDAL OF HONOR A3 (488) INITIATES W L K POINTS TEAM NAME WENDELL 4763 1 1 0 23 MINGALOIDS (486) MITCHELL PAIGE 4760 3 2 0 22 MEDAL OF HONOR A3 (488) MORLIN POOLE 4761 4 3 0 15 KRILL CAVALRY (403) DA2 4756 3 2 0 11 MEDAL OF HONOR A3 (488) '-' denotes a warrior who did not fight this turn.
