                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in ARVAT since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen adapts 
to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Bein' on top is great while it 
lasts, DEVIL ADVOCATES.  But how many friends do you have now?  Ya gotta be quick on 
yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the pain!  CHRISTIAN 
ROCK is now ranked 7th with a 2-3-0 turn.  ROMAN HEROES showed ARVAT what they were 
made of as they fought with a vengeance to walk off with 4-1-0.  What's with DARK 
SKY?  He actually beat ARVAT's EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, and walked away with 20 more points 
from the fight.  Major screwup at ROMAN HEROES.  ARTEMIDORUS IX lost 4 points to 
UNBREAKABLE.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe ARTEMIDORUS IX will provide more 
easy wins...  DEVIL ADVOCATES' hatred of RILL'S GCSC2 surfaced again as DEE T. EMTER 
TV challenged ARVAT's top dog.  DEE T. EMTER was reminded on the sands why SNOWFLAKE 
is Duelmaster.  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 CHRISTIAN ROCK.  In my day, no team with a 4-8-0 would scare me 
off!  What's the problem, ROMAN HEROES?   
     Warriors of ARVAT unite.  You have only your games to lose!  ABBIE DONN larned 
hers lesson (FATTY BOLGER taught it well), and we right likely won't be seein' 'im 
fight any FOR THE SHIRE members with the same gusto.  How long have I been here?  I 
got people to see, places to go...   
     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.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Rumor of the Week:  If one more total parry joins the arena, pushing the scum total
to ten in Arvat, a cataclysm will rock the city and destroy the Temple of Ahringol.

Rufus Burrows -- Too slow, my fine chap.  Better luck next turn.  Remember, two more
turns and then I'm holding out. -- Abbie

Artie V -- That's for all the beatings you've put on Awe and Lou. -- Dee

Snowflake -- Time for a title shot, my friend.  Of course, last time I was in this
position, I was ambushed by a duck.... -- Dee

     Gotta watch out for those ducks.
