                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in CLIFFHOME since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Woof!  BOY O'S were a 
bunch of dogs after JINDA-BAN got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so sweet as 1st!  
What's with CONNIE PAKKIT?  She actually beat CLIFFHOME's THE USEROUS MERCHANT, and 
walked away with 9 more points from the fight.  Har har har!  Did ENTEI wimp out, or 
just get lazy?  Anyway, he's not Duelmaster anymore.  I can barely restrain my 
enthusiam for JINDA-BAN's outstanding member, Duelmaster DASHER.  I suppose you want 
to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.   
     Warriors of CLIFFHOME unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Many a warrior 
has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  The end 
of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Entei -- It's too bad that one really good win can't count for several on your
record.  Then you could GRADUATE.  We would be glad to cheer you off. -- Dasher

Scrod Boy -- Euwh, fish!  Burn it to a crisp! -- Riquettie, disdaining the fishy and
unclean

I'd feel more sympathy for the Fratsfa Slave if he wasn't an elf and me an orc.
There's been a lot of hard feelings between our two races. -- Connie Pakkit

Matteo -- You just LOVE scratching my paint, don't you?  Gods, I hate that. -- Bent
Fender
P.S.  I can't even keep a simple coat of PRIMER on without someone coming along and
scratching it.

Alonzo -- Back and forth I go, back and forth.  My best efforts, and I still can't
bury you in the sand or anywhere else.  Damn. -- Carter Pillar

M. Carlston Chardinee -- I want you to know that I enjoyed your lunch very much.  I
really did.  I wouldn't mind doing it again some day. -- Dasher

9 July 2007
I have not been receiving my physical turns in a reliable manner lately.  If there
are diplos with the turns that go missing, they're gone for good.  So if you send me
a diplo and do not see an acknowledgement of receipt in the personals, know that I
have not gotten it (yet).  If you have email, contact me at Livia AT reality DOT com.
If you don't have email, keep trying with the diplos.  We are working on this
problem. -- the Scribe/Jorja/Leeta
P.S.  If you email me, put "Re DM" on the subject line.
