                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome CALEAM.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Bein' on top is great while 
it lasts, HERE TO PHOENIX.  But how many friends do you have now?  What's with SUPER 
FREAK?  It actually beat GOLDEN CANYON's CLEMMIE, and walked away with 20 more points 
from the fight.  Laughs were big at WARCKERS while they watched SUPER FREAK clobber 
CLEMMIE.  She lost 16 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  
CALEAM has a Duelmaster who doesn't sit back and get lazy.  It challenged SHERWOOD 
FOREST's YUCKY TUCKY (12-5-1), which should prove (ahem!) interesting.  I'm sure 
CALEAM is excited about YUCKY TUCKY, the new Duelmaster from SHERWOOD FOREST.  
(remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  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.  CALEAM thinks SHERWOOD 
FOREST and their 203-164-25 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  
In my day, no team with a 200-162-24 would scare me off!  What's the problem, HERE TO 
PHOENIX?  What do people see in YUCKY TUCKY?  His 12-5-1?  SHERWOOD FOREST ain't 
talkin', but he's got 115 points.  I hate going to the effort of writing about the 
kind of fights that COLORADO SPRINGS gets in.  It fights people like SAILOR VENUS, 11 
points below.  I thought COLORADO SPRINGS showed great skill and promise when it 
defeated SAILOR VENUS.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Warriors of CALEAM unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Methinks 
INQUISITION SL4's desire for revenge against HERE TO PHOENIX passes with each passing 
moment...  One week left guys!  Let's get on with the show!  Many a warrior has met 
his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  All work 
and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

All we fought were standbys?  Only eleven active warriors left in the whole arena?
Whatever happened to the rush of teams that was going to put Caleam back on the
dueling map?  Gods, this is...unfortunate. -- Leeta, Golden Canyon

I did not sew a seam for the Visiting Orc, no, I opened several.  It was good for
him.  All the best physicians recommend bleeding to balance the humors. -- Un-
Seamstress
P.S.  Not that the Visiting Orc has any humor.  I have never heard him laugh.

The Ambitious Guard must rate as a prime example of stupidity and inability to learn
from his errors.  Such as his error in thinking that his ambition would be reasonably
applied in the arena.  What a waste of a man! -- Clemmie

It was my pleasure to give the Shiftyeyed Volunteer a little of what he had coming to
him. -- Golderie

     The Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire want to announce the joining of a new
member who cherishes the same ideals, respect and loyalty that we hold dear.
     From this day forward let all know that Blackstorm is now a Dark Knight of the
Desolate Empire Alliance.  With him as our chosen brother, our alliance only becomes
stronger.  Let all his foes become ours, and ours his.  May all our enemies' blood
flow freely and give NO quarter in war.
     This is also a warning to any cowards, bullies, etc....  If you play with fire,
you WILL get burnt!!!

To those involved, no, I have not abandoned your stories.  But I've been letting them
drift, and that has to stop, so I am taking the time to make sure that I know where
they are going, more than just "what happens next" dreamed up on the fly, before
resuming work on them.  No new stories will be started until at least one of the old
ones has concluded, for the same reason:  quantity can't substitute for quality.
Your patience in this matter is appreciated. -- the Scribe
