                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to JHANS once again!  What's with BLACKWIND?  He actually beat 
ENGINES 'O' DEATH's THE LIMITER, and walked away with 16 more points from the fight.  
Laughs were big at VOW TO DESTROY while they watched BLACKWIND clobber THE LIMITER.  
He lost 4 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  See how the 
Duelmaster Dark Arena Challenged DARK ARENA's WURM KIN?  That sort of initiative is 
how he got where he is now.  The crowds were amazed this turn, as WURM KIN killed the 
Duelmaster, OBSIDIAN, leaving VOW TO DESTROY in mourning.  So now BLAIN gets to be 
JHANS' Duelmaster.  But what comes around goes around.  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 the most challenged warrior, FROZEN CHARLOTTE!  
Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  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.  
JHANS is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  I don't want 
to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

All -- I've been...out of circulation for the last couple of months, and my lists
are not up to date.  If you've announced a manager name, a new alliance, or changed
a manager name or alliance since the middle of February, let me know in the ads, via

diplo, or in an e-mail (Sue (at) solberg-mathews (dot) com).  For that matter, if
you just want to make sure I've got things right, you can always do the same. -- The
Saint, keeper of lists
