                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome JHANS.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have I 
fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Woof!  UNKNOWNS were a bunch 
of dogs after LITTLE GIRLS LIKE... got through with 'em!  4th ain't so sweet as 1st!  
Hmmmph!  I always thought ERRATA was an over-rated team and they proved it with a 
0-1-0!  It seems so recently people were saying REVELATIONS was washed up, finished.  
But 3-1-1 moved them up 1.  I guess they're washed no more...  Well, WAY OF THE SWORD 
C4, 2-3-2 isn't a complete rout.  But the Duelmaster has nothing to fear from you 
guys!  What's with THE MAESTRO?  She actually beat EVER AFTER's CURTIS JAMES, and 
walked away with 18 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at ILL STRATEGY 
while they watched THE MAESTRO clobber CURTIS JAMES.  He lost 15 points and got 
bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  I'm sure JHANS is excited about KNOCKED 
UP!, the new Duelmaster from UNKNOWNS.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as 
I have...  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some 
team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was 
UNKNOWNS.  The bums at IRON TIGERS couldn't face the challenges from UNKNOWNS!  No 
excuse for that!  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, 
SHIRLEY!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.   
     Warriors of JHANS unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Who will dare fight 
SILVER SIDE UP, after it returned from the Dark Arena?  (For the record 5-4-3 is 44, 
and has it points) So EVER AFTER sent CRAPPY TP #1 to the Dark Arena.  Big deal.  
Plenty more fighters where CRAPPY TP #1 came from.  Dime a dozen...  Now, 
Spyreporters...  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, fight 
dirty.   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
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

An Announcement Concerning the Brotherhood of the Blade Alliance:
     I have chosen to withdraw my membership from the Brotherhood of the Blade
alliance.  The years I have spent in the alliance have been the best of my DM career.
I leave the alliance with many great friends and will always remain close to my
former brethren.
     The Brotherhood of the Blade will not skip a beat without my membership.  It
remains in very capable hands and its roster is among the strongest in the game.
With the return on some of its founding members to DM, I know the BOB will continue
to grow in strength and prestige in the years to come. -- The Sandman
