                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in LAPUR since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen adapts 
to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Woof!  EQUESTORS were a bunch of 
dogs after ESCAPADE got through with 'em!  3rd ain't so sweet as 1st!  Hmmmph!  I 
always thought FORLORN was an over-rated team and they proved it with a 1-2-0!  Ya 
gotta be quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the 
pain!  WILL DUEL 4 MEAD is now ranked 7th with a 3-2-0 turn.  Some people say I 
ramble too much, I don't say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I ramble.  Well 
MID EARTH moved up 1, to 5th.  What's with AKUMU?  He actually beat WILL DUEL 4 
MEAD's REWRITE, and walked away with 23 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big 
at MEN while they watched LANCE clobber VEGA.  She lost 17 points and got bruised 
from objects thrown from the stands.  See how the Duelmaster Dark Arena Challenged 
DARK ARENA's ARENAMASTER KYALL?  That sort of initiative is how she got where she is 
now.  The crowds were amazed this turn, as ARENAMASTER KYALL killed the Duelmaster, 
YOUR MAMA, leaving STREET WALKERS in mourning.  So now TESSA gets to be LAPUR's 
Duelmaster.  But what comes around goes around.  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.  How 
well I know the feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of 
practive, EQUESTORS!  The bums at ARMY OF DARKNESS couldn't face the challenges from 
EQUESTORS!  No excuse for that!  How well I know the feeling of being the most 
challenged warrior, ENERGIZER BUNNY!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to 
haunt you.  Maybe VENUSIANS' MENSA is one of those gals who likes pain, or something. 
That's what she'll get next week, after challenging up 26 to MORRIGAN.  MENSA bested 
MORRIGAN (MENSA getting 22 points, too!)--Ooh baby!  Now dat I likes!  I hate going 
to the effort of writing about the kind of fights that TESSA gets in.  She fights 
people like PIER, 9 points below.  I thought TESSA showed great skill and promise 
when she subdued PIER.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Sending a warrior to the Dark Arena reminds the 
others they'd better shape up.  Tough beans, ENERGIZER BUNNY.  That's what a 9-10-0 
gets you.  Who will dare fight SIREN, after she returned from the Dark Arena?  (For 
the record 9-7-1 is 55, and has she points) How long have I been here?  I got people 
to see, places to go...   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  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

Cloud Tiger -- Wow, that was over fast. I'll take the win, but I sure could have used
some training. Better luck next time! -- Peiton

Turtle -- Great fight! I started well but ended up punching myself out and you
capitalized on my mistake. My team will be watching out for you. -- Thaar

Ares -- Thank you sir, may I have another? Seriously, you just kicked my butt all
over the arena sands. We've had the pleasure of doing battle with your son's warriors
on Noblish Island and it is with great honor and trepidation that we make your
acquiantance. I hope some of our meetings prove favorable for my team. -- Parede

We are excited to be here in Lapur. The reputation of this fine arena is well-known.

Even in the isolated arenas of Noblish Island, where we began our career. We look
forward to many meetings with the best Lapur has to offer. -- Reegan Ironbeard
(promoter, No Quarter)

Wanna bring me Mincers on back ta Lapur. Come on Ora, let's git a goin'.  Like a
reunion, 'n, all.  See? -- Oremaster

Oremaster -- You old coot, you said we were retired. I was sort of enjoying the
peace. But, for better or worse.... -- Ora

Sky Falling -- Well the sky fell on one of us and I know it wasn't me. -- Lysias

Aronwe -- Why the aversion to protecting yourself.  You hit me 10 times, I hit you 3.
Who got the "W?" -- Longinus

Morrigan -- If I was a mortal man your fourth hit (it was a crit) would have probably
killed me. -- Gallienus

Agasaya -- 43 fights and I have never been beat like this. -- Gallienus

Lapur -- Say hello to Proconsul Marcus Aponius Saturninus (whoops more than 15
characters) governor of Moesia.  We'll just call him Aponius. -- Spartacus

Connie -- Nothing personal about the 8 point down-challenge...I'm just trying to
retire, I'm tired and don't want to fight anymore. -- Your Mama

Sporkis -- I told you if you used that strategy against Brickhouse and didn't kill
her then Tessa would be open season....you used it I still have a scum on my team.
Girls get your guns, shoot first and ask questions later!!!! -- Roadkill

Snowshoe -- Guess just saying "OOOOWWWW", really doesn't cut that butt whooping you
just put on me.  I'll try to get better for the next time we meet. -- Goldie

Zero Visability -- That kind of surprised me, was it the glare off my shiny new
weapon, or the watering of your eyes from my smell that gave my the jump? -- Dirty
Sanchez

Tessa -- Go away.......................... -- Brickhouse

Camulus -- Hey, we have to play with the cards dealt us, you have to admit I'll never
be able to sneak up on you.  Even if I'm down wind. -- Dirty Sanchez

No Quarter and Abyssal Plains -- Welcome To Lapur!!!  I'm sure you both will be a
great addition to the fine teams and managers already here. -- Roadkill and the
Street Walkers

Sanchez -- Don't sweat it.  At least you have a style you can do well against.  The
only style that hasn't beaten me yet is a ripper.  Wait, have I fought one yet? --
Camulus

Sporkis -- Camulus said he met his guy named Barry and he's been helping him train.
Now I can't get him to come in and train with us because he's out hitting something
called "home runs." -- Sovereign

Rosemary -- I know it's been said many many times before, but I really hate the Spice
Girls. -- Camulus

Gallienus -- Sorry about the harst treatment, but I couldn't have my last fight here
be a loss. -- Agasaya

Weipa -- That was fun.  Sorry about the headache. -- Morrigan
P.S.  Did you ever get all the splinters out of you forehead?

Weipa -- By the time you read this, you should either have beaten or killed Camulus.
If you didn't win, well let me be teh first to laugh at you. -- Sovereign

Mensa -- Gods that was a great fight.  I didn't expect you to fight back like you
did. -- Enyalius

Congrats Mama on a well deserved invite. -- Sovereign and the Gods
P.S.  My money's on Snowshoe to be the next one to go and finally give someone else a
shot at popularity leader.

Wecome No Quarter and Abyssal Plains.  My son has told me much about both of you.
Good luck and if you need any help, just ask. -- Sovereign

Urat -- Be it know we dance the sands with honor.  Though it pains us greatly to lose
Lyric so young, we challenge not below our rank.  Watch you we will, until such time
our rank is even. -- Lazarian of Abyssal Plains (Necromancer and Ahringol Priest)

Lapur -- Ahhh, it is good to breath the air of Lapur; the bloody, sweaty, heady air.
The three week vacation I took was great....of course, leaving the guild under the
tutelage of Whirlwind may not have been the best of ideas...a 4-6 showing during the
two turns I was away (he manages the way he fights....poorly). -- Storm Front. mgr.
Force of Nature

S'tou -- Yeah...the whole broken weapon thing and the way the fight ended...kinda
falls in line with the Whirlwind way of doing things.  Way to hang in there tough. --
Storm Front, mgr. Force of Nature

Sparkle -- My plan was to pluck all your feathers off to get you down to no
coverings.  Maybe you would have run off the field in shame and I would have won. --
Wendy

Roadkill -- Thanks for the vote of confidence about that 5-0 turn.  They are VERY
rare for me with the kind of warriors I tend to let fight for me. -- Storm Front,
mgr. Force of Nature

Your Mama -- I'm trying to become something someday somehow. -- Tye Foon

Thanks to all who congratulated me for my invite.  I will retire peacefully, which is
what I was doing before Storm Front conscripted me to fight for a mediocre guild.
Here are my sub-par stats: Waste -- 13(2)-11(2)-15-10(3)-21-13(3)-13(2).  My normal
intel held me back.  I grad with an Ad Expert in Attack, I favor the Morning Star
(could have sworn I loved the Great Axe); Low Offensive/Low Activity, and I learned
Attack skills...oh and I was an Ambi, 22-24-0,99. -- Whirlwind

Kyoko -- You're right.  My grad come not come soon enough. -- Whirlwind

Dirty Sanchez -- You could not have gotten a better random match up.  Nice style
match up for you, and a whole fist full of learns.  I was clearly out classed.  Now
if I can grad out of here, Storm Front may actually like sending all his warriors
into battle. -- Zero

Jon -- I will have to fight you again.  I need to see if that was a fluke. -- Wendy
Day

Vega -- You didn't have to hit me so many times.  If you would have just asked me to
lay down and let the Areamaster count me out, I would have. -- Fyre Raynes

All -- Sorry for the lack of personals I was away on vacation and yes, now I need a
vacation from my vacation!  I hope to have my team whipped back into shape soon.  It
seems that they have been visiting the many taverns of Lapur since I have been gone.

I would like to give all those who are graduating and who have graduated a hearty
congratulation:  Marius, Beleg, Connie, Agasaya, Whirlwind and Your Mama.  Good luck
in your futures whatever they may be. -- Venus

Buzzsaw -- You must have a keen eye to have gleaned so many skills off me when I
didn't even get to raise my weapon! -- Ankaa

Enyalius -- I'm never leaving this arena, am I? -- Mensa

Pro-Ana -- You're a quick sucker for such a large elf. -- Lynx

Fyre Raynes -- Not today. -- Vega

Celadus -- You have sealed my doom...Thanks...Thanks a lot. -- Acrux

Welcome to our newest citizens of Lapur from Noblish Ise and then some.  May the gods
bless you with good fortune and tidings.  Your going to need them just to keep your
head above water around here.  Trust me.  If you ever down by the tavern (I think
were renaming it to 'Shenanigans') pop in and have a round, half price.  Oh and I'll
have those miscreants on my roster try their best not to kill any of you..  I won't
make any promises though.  Blades have a habit of going places they shouldn't be when
your seeing double vision -- Sporkis

Roadkill -- You avoided me????.....  I did not even noticed.  Whenever the Street
Walkers are mentioned in the newsletter, I tend just to skip over it.  I don't like
reading the funny pages. -- Sporkis

Your Mama -- ...Mmmmm.. what to say?  What to say?  Here you are moving on with life
after Lapur..  Congrads?...No.  Good luck on your promising future in ADM?....  HA!
Thats a good one...  Make sure you get the money up front?....  I think you already
know that one.  Mmmmm....  How about, don't let the door hit you on the @ss on way
out?...Yeah that will do. -- Tessa
P.S.  Does the House of Pleasure double as a retirement home or are you just put out
to pasture?  Wait never mind, I don't really care.

Brickhouse -- ....What!?!  I can't make a gimmie challenge for once? -- Tessa

Whirlwind -- Just thought I give you a send off to ADM that you were familar to.
P.S.  Look on the bright side of things since you were out flat you didn't have any
motion sickness when you traveled. :)

Midnight Ruin -- *blank stare* *drool* .... Goo hit with sword.  Fall down.  Goo get
candy now.  Heeeeeeeeee!!!!  *drools some more* -- Goo

Goldie -- Whew!  For a minute there, I thought you might be a Croc.  Then I realized
that you're MUCH more shapely.  In fact... very shapely indeed.  Perhaps we should
get together somewhere NOT in the arena?  With privacy, eh? -- Snowshoe

Petunia -- And a pretty little flower you are, buttercup, but I don't go through that
door.  Ah... I didn't mean to rip your face off, not really, just to straighten your
nose. -- Red Lily
P.S.  I never could wear, or wanted to wear, those girlie colors.  Fuchsia!
(shudder)

Peiton -- That was well done, but why didn't YOU learn any skills?  Jorja is
concerned about it. -- Cloud Tiger
P.S.  What *I* was concerned about was not getting KILLED in that match.  Ouch!

Lysias -- Well, damn.  Jorja said I should do better, win fights, that kind of thing,
but she wasn't the one out here getting mashed like a darned melon.  Ouch, ouch. --
Sky Falling (which is when I'll win a fight, I bet)
P.S.  Aren't you a little tall for a dwarf?

Daemon -- I don't see why I should give you advice so you can defeat me, but Jorja's
VERY insistent.  She says you should be faster off the mark. -- Firefly
P.S.  And that a letter is about half written at this point.

Ed. -- There is that. -- Snowshoe

Your Mama -- Oh, good, you're leaving!  Bon voyage and all that stuff. -- Cardow
