                                      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.  What's with DIONYSUS?  He 
actually beat JINDA-BAN's BENT FENDER, and walked away with 16 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at OLD SCHOOL while they watched HEPHAESTUS clobber 
KARTIKAYA.  He lost 7 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  I 
can barely restrain my enthusiam for BOY O'S' outstanding member, Duelmaster MATTEO.  
Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  CLIFFHOME thinks JINDA-BAN 
and their 482-636-10 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  In my 
day, no team with a 480-633-9 would scare me off!  What's the problem, BOY O'S?  How 
well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, BENT FENDER!  Don't 
make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.   
     Warriors of CLIFFHOME unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Some people are 
wondering why BOY O'S sent ATILLIO (5-0-1) to the Dark Arena.  Just be glad you're 
not on their team.  Some people in CLIFFHOME think BOY O'S was too harsh when they 
sent VITO (2-0-1) to the Dark Arena.  Them's the breaks, I say.  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.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now. 
Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Shogun -- I leave you to it, and hope you are properly grateful for a manager who
doesn't insist that you "say a few words" just because you're the duelmaster. --
Connie Pakkit

Pelagaeus -- Bad match for you, good for me, so I like it.  Better luck next time,
against someone else. -- Carter Pillar

Dionysus -- Ah, I suppose you are not the person I should rely on to remind me not to
take a drink before the fight, hmm? -- Redd Corvait

Cyprian -- I was feeling chivalrous?  That's my story, and I'm sticking to it. --
Bent Fender

20/20 -- To see clearly is not enough.  One must also act. -- Kartikaya

All Finesse -- You're doing this on purpose, aren't you?  Trying to extort some kind
of concessions out of us, eh?  But you may have gone too far this time, our Wurm Kin,
though posing as "normal," is of a demonic essence and may well decide that your
guildhouse makes a good larder.  You have been warned. -- Melatas, Spymaster of
Cliffhome
P.S.  The poor troll had to lie down in a dark room with a damp cloth on its
forehead.  It just isn't "up" for numbers like that.
