                                      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.  Up 'n down.  Up 'n down.  
Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, LUROCIAN GUARD's 
3rd moved them up to 3-1-0 place.  It seems so recently people were saying ANGELS OF 
PAIN was washed up, finished.  But 3-0-0 moved them up 1.  I guess they're washed no 
more...  What's with ABSOLUTION?  He actually beat ARVAT's PERSISTENT BEGGAR, and 
walked away with 19 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at FISHERMAN'S WHARF.  
HANNANNA lost 12 points to ITEM.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe HANNANNA will 
provide more easy wins...  I'm sure ARVAT is excited about LARA, the new Duelmaster 
from LUROCIAN GUARD.  (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.  The 
most avoided team was DEVIL ADVOCATES.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at 
ANGELS OF PAIN ain't reelin'!  DEVIL ADVOCATES' mad!  How well I know the feeling of 
being the most challenged warrior, LADY!  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.  RL of THE WILLBURYS got 10 points for removing 
another young punk.  Tough luck, ASSORTED!  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.  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.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

A.S. Modeus -- So long as the roll isn't my betty nore, the Cinnamon Pecan Roll.  If
I get on too many of those, forget moving fast in the arena. -- Psirena

Domination -- Seems to me I recall that Nero Wolfe had a different recipe.... --
Catfish Annie

     _Death of a Dude_?  There was brown sugar in it.  Very strange.

Hmm, the tourney.  We salute all the participants, but special note goes to Swerk,
nine-three in the Initiates.  Are we going to see Swerk here any time soon? -- Jorja
and the Fishermen

D. Dave Ell -- Not what I wanted, but what I got.  Good fight, and at least I can
console myself that it took you three minutes to get me down. -- Fizzgigue

Tgg -- I won that fight before the announcer had figured out how to pronounce your
name.  Not bad. -- Hannanna

Ydal -- Ah, you elves.  You may be slim and graceful and draw all the men at a party,
but in the arena you're on the flimsy side. -- Psirena

Thomaso -- I really didn't need that.  I hope you sit on a fishhook. -- Catfish Annie

Rose -- More thorn than flower.  Ouch! -- Hannamarie
