                                      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.  Ya gotta be quick on yer feet!  
Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the pain!  BOHICA is now ranked 
3rd with a 2-0-0 turn.  What's with DEADMAU5?  It actually beat LAPUR's VENOMOUS 
CONCUBINE, and walked away with 19 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at 
EVIL EATER BUNNIES while they watched THE WHITE RABBIT clobber RAVAGE.  She lost 9 
points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Try as she might, HOPE 
wasn't good enough at persuading THE CLEAR to step down from the Duelmaster's 
throne...  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...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, METAL 
MINCERS!  In my day, no team with a 719-482-21 would scare me off!  What's the 
problem, BLACK SAMURAI?  What do people see in ENIGMA?  His 6-5-1?  THE TAKEN ain't 
talkin', but he's got 56 points.  BUTTERFACE of BOHICA knows how to pick 'em.  She 
challenged SNOWFLAKE of CARDOW HUNTERS who is up by 19.  Now was this a wise move?  
BUTTERFACE perhaps got hers just desserts, seeing as she beat SNOWFLAKE and ended up 
with 42 recognition points.   
     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!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
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

Ghost of Double McDipper -- Sorry, I got carried away.  Must've been the winter storm
that came through, and my teammate Wintersong egging me on. -- Windflower

Windflower -- Hey!  Don't blame ME! -- Wintersong

Hope -- The fact that you could devastate me gives me hope!  This winter has seemed
to get a second wind and is really bearing down on us. -- Wintersong

Buzzard -- Not your day, and I'm glad of that.  I see buzzards around, I know they
serve a useful purpose in the world, but I don't have to LIKE them. -- Windflower
