                                    TEAM SPOTLIGHT

Managers of Niya.. Niyo.. oh, heck, Niatoli (that's the way it's pronounced here in 
the Commission offices) -- Might I have your attention for just a few moments?  I 
would very much appreciate knowing who manages which team here.
     Properly, of course, Debby should have asked you, or even the UnknownSpymaster, 
but, well... (shrug)  Unknown is having one his `mysterious' phases and hasn't been 
seen except briefly; we all assume that he (or possibly even she!) has slipped into 
some identity we don't know about and is doing whatever Unknown does at times like 
that.  And Debby... (sigh)  She flitted in to where I was doing some back filing (I'm 
working as a clerk for the Commission, at the moment) and mentioned something about 
`checking out the tanning season' in Mazgourrah, which is about as far south as she 
can get and stay in touch with the Commission at all.  She asked me to `keep these 
boring old lists up to date', which of course I will do for her.  I've suspected that 
sooner or later this job would end up on my desk; so many do. She's exasperating, but 
really quite a nice person, good-hearted, once you know her, even if she is a little 
careless about things like deadlines. (aside)  I don't know how she ever came to be a 
spy reporter, though.  It seems so far from her main interests.
     So, anyway, from reading the last few newsletters, and using the list of teams in 
the cycle 299 newsletter, this is where I stand for Niatoli:
     Animal Dezire -- manager unknown
     Assassins Five -- manager unknown, though I have my suspicions
     Assassins X -- manager The Elder
     Girl Scout Cookies -- manager Cookie Monster
     Homes -- manager Coeur
     I'm Dan, Man -- manager Hoffa.  Dan Hoffa?
     Impressions -- manager False
     Obsidian Hall -- manager unknown
     Snotzi's II -- manager unknown
     The Warbirds -- manager Bird Master
     The Wild Hunt -- manager unknown
     Could I just take a minute here, managers of N. Island, and suggest that you join 
me in petitioning the Commission to regularize the spelling of this arena's name?  I 
can NEVER remember how to spell it, and if I see it written, I can't remember how to 
pronounce it.  I realize that my convenience is a very small point in the life of N. 
Island and it's people, but I just thought I'd bring it up.
     Thank you all for your assistance; I do appreciate your cooperation. -- Livia

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in NIYTYOLE ISLAND 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, HOMES.  But how many friends do you have now?  Up 'n down.  Up 
'n down.  Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, 
OBSIDIAN HALL's 4th moved them up to 1-0-0 place.  What's with SAVANNAH?  It actually 
beat HOMES' PASADENA, and walked away with 11 more points from the fight.  Major 
screwup at HOMES.  PASADENA lost 11 points to SAVANNAH.  Some new strategies, 
perhaps?  Maybe PASADENA will provide more easy wins...  See how the Duelmaster 
challenged GIRL SCOUT COOKIES' KOOKABURRA?  That sort of initiative is how he got 
where he is now.  Try as it might, KOOKABURRA wasn't good enough at persuading BEAG 
LOICH 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.  
NIYTYOLE ISLAND thinks HOMES and their 106-112-4 is too much!  If at first you don't 
succeed, give up...  Management must be dealin', as the boys at THE WILD HUNT ain't 
reelin'!  HOMES' mad!  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged 
warrior, KOOKABURRA!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.   
     Warriors of NIYTYOLE ISLAND unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Many a 
warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  NIYTYOLE 
ISLAND is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen
