                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to LAPUR once again!  Woof!  STREET WALKERS were a bunch of dogs 
after THE TAKEN got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so sweet as 1st!  What's with RISUI? 
He actually beat ALMOST EXACTLY's BLOOD MAKES NOISE, and walked away with 25 more 
points from the fight.  Major screwup at ALMOST EXACTLY.  BLOOD MAKES NOISE lost 23 
points to RISUI.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe BLOOD MAKES NOISE will provide 
more easy wins...  I'm sure LAPUR is excited about SHINE, the new Duelmaster from THE 
TAKEN.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  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, THE TAKEN!  In my day, no team with a 712-625-35 would scare me off!  
What's the problem, ALMOST EXACTLY?  How well I know the feeling of being the most 
challenged warrior, BAK SHIELDBORN!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to 
haunt you.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  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.  
Are you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm 
writing it before you read it.  Oh, well.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now. 
Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

LOL!!  Ali Boombah Yay 133 points vs. Nekoda 76 points??  Seriously?  Fifty-seven
points advantage is NOT a match-up, that's a freebie handout win.  Puh-leeze.  What
does any of the rest of us have to do in order to get one of those??

Same thing applies for Risui 55 points vs. Depravation 27 points, as well as others.
What the he!!??  Match-ups are apparently being determined by the inept and
illiterate.  Can we ever expect _some_ degree of equity at least??

     Well, you could issue challenges.

Blood Makes Noise -- I see you didn't fight me this time, but that's okay.  I'm not
likely to go anywhere soon, unless I get killed.  So come along any time. --
Sandstorm, still stunned at where he's gotten to now

Two-three this time, BUT we got three awards.  I don't understand that, but I won't
complain! -- Red Mare, for the Cardow Hunters

Miley Virus -- You are a true lady, and I thank you for the chance to call myself
duelmaster.  I have no illusions as to how long I can hold the title, but it's cool
anyway. -- Sandstorm

Maul Rat -- You rat!  I should get a serious cat in here to hunt YOU. -- Hunter

Jessie James -- Believe it, boy. -- Red Mare

Toadsmacker -- Cheese louise!  Go smack a toad, which I am NOT. -- Windglass

Bak Shieldborn -- And there you are again.  I was confused by the rain turning to
snow; it threw off my rhythm. -- Dances with Rain

From:       The Office of Accurate Census Reporting, Gladiatorial Commission
To:         All Managers

In the interest of preserving our natural resources and preventing managerial writer's 
cramp, census forms will be provided for warriors by request only, effective 
immediately.  Managers may register their warriors' races and/or favorite sayings by 
simply writing them on a separate piece of paper and submitting them to the 
Commission.  Each warrior may have up to 15 favorite sayings.  Each saying must be 
categorized Jeer, Gloat, Boredom, Ouch, Victory and may be up to 80 characters long.  
For any questions, please contact the Gladiatorial Commission.
