                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to LAPUR once again!  Woof!  THE TAKEN were a bunch of dogs after 
BOHICA got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so sweet as 1st!  Up 'n down.  Up 'n down.  
Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, CARDOW HUNTERS' 
4th moved them up to 2-3-0 place.  What's with WINTERSONG?  She actually beat THE 
TAKEN's BUZZARD, and walked away with 12 more points from the fight.  Major screwup 
at THE TAKEN.  BUZZARD lost 5 points to WINTERSONG.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  
Maybe BUZZARD will provide more easy wins...  Try as she might, HOPE wasn't good 
enough at persuading THE CLEAR to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Advice 
to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  The 
most avoided team was BLACK SAMURAI.  The bums at BOHICA couldn't face the challenges 
from BLACK SAMURAI!  No excuse for that!  What do people see in CHISAHARU?  His 
17-11-0?  BLACK SAMURAI ain't talkin', but he's got 70 points.  WINDFLOWER didn't 
quite know what to make of a challenge she received from DEADMAU5 of BOHICA, who is 
24 points below her.  DEADMAU5 perhaps got its just desserts, seeing as it killed 
WINDFLOWER and ended up with 135 recognition points.   
     Warriors of LAPUR unite.  You have only your games to lose!  DEADMAU5 proved too 
determined for WINDFLOWER.  WINDFLOWER was lucky to go in the ring, with 22-13-1 to 
hers credit.  She will be remembered.  Tut, tut.  How well I know and share CARDOW 
HUNTERS' grief over the loss of WINDFLOWER.  How well I know DEADMAU5's pride at 
killing a higher-ranked!  Someone told SINISTER FINN that ARCANE PHARMACY never 
Bloodfeuded, that he'd have an easy kill.  Well, I'm sure whoever misled you is right 
sorry.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  The end 
of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want to 
overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Butterface -- Hmm, but it IS the best butter, I see.  And you won't have to worry
about being chapped.  So I suppose there's at least a little sense in it.  But the
"greasy face" look has limited appeal, and if you're hoping for a date, well... don't
hold your breath. -- Snowflake

Buzzard -- You probably need to buzz more. -- Windflower
P.S.  Hey, don't laugh!  Buzzing is a good defensive tactic.  People think it's bees
and keep their distance.

Chicaharu -- I didn't start out meaning to be vicious, but you annoyed me. --
Wintersong

Hambone -- (muttering) Dem bones, dem bones, where's the beanpot when you need it....
-- Stormrunner

Captain Janeway -- Is Jane's way better?  I could try it. -- Dancing Cat
