be.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome CALEAM.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with WARBRIDE?  She 
actually beat CALEAM's SHIFTYEYED VOLUNTEER, and walked away with 51 more points from 
the fight.  Laughs were big at CALEAM while they watched NOBLE ASSASSIN clobber 
BOUNCER.  He lost 1 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  
CALEAM, set your sights on NOBLE ASSASSIN.  He'll be happy to entertain all requests 
after defeating POPPA LODE.  BOUNCER looked pretty Duelmasterlike as he took CALEAM's 
top spot with 82 points.  Now, what will POPPA LODE do?  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...   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  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?  All 
work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

                                     PERSONAL ADS

Leeta/Inquisition--Greetings and Salutations!  Just wanted to stop by and visit,
chat, and soak up some freebie fight credits.  No offense intended, but my reasons
for coming to Caleam are less than altruistic.  Okay, downright mercenary.  But I
love to play, and if I can find ways to run more teams on little or no money, I will.
     I do, however, write personal ads, and the occasional spotlight (however, I
usually do those for ADM).  Hopefully, not too many ads will be directed towards
Stand-ins.
     I am an aggressive manager, when I have time to dissect the newsletter, so be
prepared for challenges and avoids.  This being an Andorian arena, I shall refrain
(as is my usual custom, anyway, unless at 'war') from downchallenging.
     My finances are my limit to my play in Caleam.  As long as my main team in
Mordant keeps earning fight credits, and as long as the two teams cost no more than a
single team to run, I'll be here. -- Lord Xiang & Vortex

Delicious -- Well, you have the dubious (from our side, anyway) honor of being the
only managed warrior we fought, and our only loss.  And I KNOW it isn't an honor that
I was the one who lost to you.  Don't do that again! -- Golden One

19 September 2005
I'd like to say hello to everyone I know that is still around after my being gone for
five years.  Hope to see you all on the sands, and may your weapons strike true and
your shields protect you (except, of course, against MY warriors *grin*)!! -- Lord
Xiang, D2-101

5 October 2005
To those once of Willaf -- It's time to come back to the sands.  I'm back,
exclusively at Willaf.... -- Kurd the Vivisectionist, Your Better

12 October 2005
Magic Man -- You are a fellow Canadian, are you not?  Where do you hail from?  I live
in Kelowna, B.C. -- Maximillian, 8,13, 28, 47, 54
