                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome JHANS.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have I 
fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Woof!  5440 OR FIGHT! were a 
bunch of dogs after VOW TO DESTROY got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so sweet as 1st!  
What's with EDGECRUSHER?  She actually beat STILLMATIC's THIS CAMEL, and walked away 
with 22 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at VOW TO DESTROY while they 
watched EDGECRUSHER clobber THIS CAMEL.  He lost 18 points and got bruised from 
objects thrown from the stands.  Har har har!  Did KERN wimp out, or just get lazy?  
Anyway, he's not Duelmaster anymore.  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for 
STILLMATIC's outstanding member, Duelmaster REBUILD.  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.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  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.  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

Ripples Dorrigan -- Sadly, effort is in short supply in Jhans these days.  Few
warriors show up to fight, fewer still take part in the verbal sparring that we used
to be known for.  I hope to see our Arena become one of the most feared in Alastari
once more. -- Mordraith, 5440 or Fight

     A worthy desire.

Kern -- Enjoy the Throne.  I doubt anyone here could Usurp you, and my last fight
will be by torchlight. -- 'Werd

Six dead in the Dark Arena (it counts of one of ours dies, you know), and the city is
on the brink of perishing.  Right now, with this cold being handed back and forth, I
think the perishing might be GOOD. -- Ripples Dorrigan

Oh, and seasons greetings and joys and all that.  Including the colds.  I don't see
why this Yule festival has to be held in the winter.  Late spring would be much more
confortable. -- Ripples

And one more thing, congratulations to 'Werd.  If no one else will do it, we will. --
Ripples Dorrigan and the arena staff
