                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of MURSKA!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Bein' on top is great while it 
lasts, CHILDREN OF LLYR.  But how many friends do you have now?  What's with HUCKLE 
CAT?  He actually beat THE BEARS' TAKE COVER, and walked away with 16 more points 
from the fight.  Laughs were big at BUSY, BUSYTOWN while they watched HUCKLE CAT 
clobber TAKE COVER.  He lost 7 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  What a role model for MURSKA's young 'uns!  BUMP 'N' JUMP becomes 
Duelmaster, but don't bother to fight no more!  I'm sure MURSKA is excited about 
FATHER CAT, the new Duelmaster from BUSY, BUSYTOWN.  (remember?)  But when you've 
seen as many as I have...  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.  How 
well I know the feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of 
practive, THE BEARS!  Management must be dealin', as the boys at BUSY, BUSYTOWN ain't 
reelin'!  THE BEARS' mad!  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged 
warrior, TAKE COVER!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  I 
hate going to the effort of writing about the kind of fights that DINGO DOG gets in.  
He fights people like KAI, 10 points below.  I thought DINGO DOG showed great skill 
and promise when he subdued KAI.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  So THE BEARS sent GRIZZLY to the Dark Arena.  Big 
deal.  Plenty more fighters where GRIZZLY came from.  Dime a dozen...  Now, 
Spyreporters...  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
MURSKA 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

Father Cat -- I didn't need that. -- Ghost of Dallow
P.S.  Didn't my terribly high charisma have ANY effect?

Dingo Dog -- You're too busy.  Relax a little.  Sleep on the couch, go for a walk,
chase a cat.  Chase Father Cat. -- Kai

Bump 'N' Jump -- For me, that means "trip 'n' fall." -- Cadal Coontz

Mr. Fixit -- Thanks!  I was pleased to keep my winning record. -- Faron
P.S.  But let's not meet again.  I have a feeling that luck entered into that
victory.

I stabbed the Embezzling Scribe with his steel-nibbed quill.  Ha! -- Balin
P.S.  Now he has ink poisoning.

To all those lookin' for some easy pickins:  I, Elfwine, manager of The Shallowship,
the most feared team in all of Jhelum, invite all who seek wide open spaces for pubs
and other such establishments of limited debauchery, to visit this deserted city and
help me clear up some of the dust.  I'm just about ready to have my guys face off
against each other to get some new action.  Guess I'd better join a tournament or
something...hmmmm, there's a thought.

All -- I've seen what's on the forum.  So I'm prey, am I, Max.  You and all your
devious buddies will become my prey, even those I thought okay.  I don't have to
explain anything I do, much like yourselves so bring it on.  Feel free to come over
to 31 for a thrashing.  Oh, by the way, I am also in a new alliance.  They tend to
share my sentiments about the VC.  If they follow me or not, we will see; I'm not at
liberty to talk for them.  The VC may be on their last stand!!!! -- Blackstorm
