                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of LYRATILAN!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with FEDER JORNIS?  He 
actually beat MADTOWN's MAELSTROM, and walked away with 25 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at MADTOWN.  MAELSTROM lost 13 points to FEDER JORNIS.  Some 
new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe MAELSTROM will provide more easy wins...  FLEX was 
reminded on the sands why SYMPATHY is Duelmaster.  Wouldn't it be nice to have live 
subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted 
prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  LYRATILAN thinks MADTOWN 
and their 188-131-10 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at ERRATA ain't reelin'!  MADTOWN's mad!   
     Warriors of LYRATILAN unite.  You have only your games to lose!  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.  
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.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- 
Olaf Modeen

"The battle begins amid the crowd's approval."  I could say some really scathing
things about the crowd and what they could do with their approval, but Jorja'd
probably have me tossed in the river for it.  Peculiar wench, but then, they all are.
The latest survey she's conducting is to discover whether there's a link between the
"sentence of the day" that introduces all of this cycle's fights here, and which
golem does the spy report.  To go with this sentence today I note that we have Debby
Tonte.  Could be worse, I guess. -- X. Rolph Tupp

Flex -- That's DISGUSTING, the way you stand there and "flex" various parts of your
body.  GROSSLY physical.  How can the Commission allow you to do that in public? --
X. Rolph Tupp the Outraged

My, my, the Ambitious Guard is a fine figure of a werewolf, I will say that for him.
But since *I* am not a werewolf, I believe I can resist his masculine charisma.  And
he has no choice but to take no for an answer, since I have demonstrated my ability
to enfoce that answer. -- Trellin Xiss

Hipployta -- Damn.  I know it wasn't you who dropped me on the way to the Infirmary,
but if it hadn't been for you, I wouldn't have been GOING to the Infirmary, so I
consider you responsible for my untimely demise.  You're probably one of those wolf-
killing golems, aren't you?  (heavy sigh)  Damn. -- Ghost of Doberum Hannis

Maelstrom -- I never did like storms.  They make my hackles go up every time, they
make my ears pop and crackle, and my teeth snap.  And a male storm is the worst. --
Foirene Ilmer

Stan Dauff -- Clever name.  At least, that's what Jorja says.  I don't study stuff
like that myself.  Why not use your skills to take out the insurance agents that
batten on the arenas like leaches on drowning pig? -- Feder Jornis
