                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of NIATOLI ISLAND!  Once again I've been called out of 
retirement for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with SCREWFACE?  
He actually beat HALCYON DAZE's FAIZA HUSNA, and walked away with 26 more points from 
the fight.  Laughs were big at HALCYON DAZE while they watched NIBERA DESHRET clobber 
IRINKESTA.  She lost 7 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  I 
can barely restrain my enthusiam for SACKETT'S & CO.'s outstanding member, Duelmaster 
LONIGAN.  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team 
is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.   
     Warriors of NIATOLI ISLAND unite.  You have only your games to lose!  How long 
have I been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  NIATOLI 
ISLAND is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Remember--a 
good fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Well!  This is a fine how-de-do!  We didn't fight anything but standbys this time.
And, of course, neither did the OTHER two active warriors.  This arena is pathetic.
-- Jorja, The Sewing Circle

Why should I write to the Ambitious Guard?  *I* am not the one who wants to have
dinner with him!  *I* am not the one who--  (sound of scuffling)  Oh, all right.
"Good fight, Ambitious Guard." -- Thimbell
P.S.  And no, I will NOT use his personal, out of the arena name!  We aren't on those
terms.

Finally, I get the better of the Dangerous Criminal.  Assuming that was "the better."
There is a value judgment implied there, and they can be so tricky.  After all, from
HIS point of view, that might count as "the worse." -- Irinkesta

I have no sympathy at all for Convicted Thieves.  If they were worth the space they
occupy, they would go steal their contracts out of the Commission office, sell their
life stories to the Andorian Star, and retire to the Isles of the South. --
Rintirisse
P.S.  Wish I could!

Oh, good gods, that was RIDICULOUS.  Flails wildly, it says here.  And I was
PRACTICING.  I'm getting better!  Really.  I am getting better.  Trust me on this,
would I lie?  It isn't like I have to fear the Dark Arena.  Not on OUR team. --
Korienellis

Korie -- Ah, but you get to fear a training encounter with ME. -- Jorja
P.S.  And if you don't fear it, you should.

30 December 2005
Just a reminder to all you online type people.  It is much appreciated if you send
your personals in PLAIN TEXT, rather than HTML or formatted text.  HAL, in his
infinite wisdom, doesn't DO formatting, which means having to unsnarl your personal
ads from bunches of extraneous...stuff.  So, if your e-mailer has a plain text
option, let it be your friend. -- Ed.
P.S.  Sometimes it's the formatted text which makes ads go astray.  Not often, but
sometimes.
