                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to LYRATILAN once again!  Biff!  Pow!  LYRATILAN watched with glee 
as THE MIDDLE WAY 4 got knocked off top spot by ERRATA!  What's with MENTAL?  He 
actually beat THE MIDDLE WAY 4's VELOND WOK, and walked away with 19 more points from 
the fight.  Major screwup at FUNKY FOLK.  ROBIN BANKS lost 14 points to COLJ.  Some 
new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe ROBIN BANKS will provide more easy wins...  So SPARK 
finally bought it, eh?  I thought he too sure of himself, always strutting around.  
RICK O'SHEA, there's a lesson here!  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty 
gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  
LYRATILAN thinks THE MIDDLE WAY 4 and their 174-173-7 is too much!  If at first you 
don't succeed, give up...  In my day, no team with a 172-170-7 would scare me off!  
What's the problem, ERRATA?  What do people see in VELOND WOK?  His 29-18-0?  THE 
MIDDLE WAY 4 ain't talkin', but he's got 105 points.   
     Warriors of LYRATILAN 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!   
     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!  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

                                     PERSONAL ADS

Mental -- Yep, you are, I am, all us gladiators are mental. -- Velond Wok
P.S.  But, at least in my case, also courageous, charismatic, and trustworthy.

Robin Banks -- Gotta go where the money is, I guess.  But wouldn't it be better to
find some OTHER place with money?  (pause for thought)  Then again, IS there any
other place?  Oh, well.  I'm too old for retraining, guess I'll just stick with this.
-- Quia Salian

Somehow, I have an idea the Guard has forgotten how to "just say no" to his
Ambitions.  Bet he wishes he could. -- Beltran Foss

Colj -- I guess when you're that tall, nobody says, "Colj, your name is spelled
wrong."  Goodness knows *I* won't say it.  I wouldn't want to offend you!  Maybe I'll
just say, hmm, how about, "Good fight!" -- Davia Hannas

Vince -- Well, this whole thing is very pleasing, and I didn't expect it to be!  I
said to myself, "Erhlie, you're too short.  They'll never call you Fratsfan."  And I

did so want to be blonde!  And then...the Commission came THROUGH for me!  It's
wonderful, and I'm SURE I'm going to have a lot of fun. -- Erhlie Fay, blonde and
happy

Lord Protector Velond Wok -- Well, aren't you the clever dog, to get yourself invited
to the Isle.  Do they know you're an incurable couch hound?
     This form letter from the Commission, which I am instructed to deliver to you,
mentions "lands."  You will notice in your own copy how unspecific it is.  What I
think it actually MEANS is that you get a couch all your own.  Go be a potato, with
our good will. -- Arenamaster Jyo

5 November 2005
It is with a proud heart that I announce the newest member of the Desolate Empire
alliance.  Dok Sik will be known from here forth as Dark Knight Dok Sik, of the
Desolate Empire.  May he be blessed with victory and courage.  May his enemies' blood
flow freely! -- The Dark Knights Wasby and Toker
