                             Notes from the arena champ.

     A welcome back to the Master Darque's Darque Angels.  It looks like they will be
up here preaching from the throne very soon.  In comparison, the Ducks are a little
wet under their feathers, and not really up to the task of taking on Angels.  But a
duck never backs down, so we will do our best.

Duelmaster of Xochitlan

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to XOCHITHLAN once again!  Some people say I ramble too much, I 
don't say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I ramble.  Well STEEL WOLVES 2 moved 
up 1, to 4th.  What's with BLACK GUARD?  He actually beat THE MIDDLE WAY's SALOME 
TORENE, and walked away with 24 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at THE 
MIDDLE WAY.  SALOME TORENE lost 21 points to BLACK GUARD.  Some new strategies, 
perhaps?  Maybe SALOME TORENE will provide more easy wins...  Another fighter (MALICE 
12-2-3) challenged another Duelmaster (PEKING DUCK 15-6-0).  Life goes on.  I can 
barely restrain my enthusiam for DARQUE ANGELS' outstanding member, Duelmaster 
MALICE.  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.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, DUCKS UNLIMITED!  In 
my day, no team with a 183-124-13 would scare me off!  What's the problem, THE 
ROUGHRIDERS?  What do people see in ULRIK VENN?  His 13-14-0?  THE MIDDLE WAY ain't 
talkin', but he's got 53 points.  I hate going to the effort of writing about the 
kind of fights that SELAANE gets in.  It fights people like GRAYDEN VALE, 14 points 
below.  I thought SELAANE showed great skill and promise when it was bested by 
GRAYDEN VALE.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  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.  The end 
of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Remember--a good 
fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Bettina Chim -- Our barn-burning fights seem to be getting longer and longer.  Any
more, and I might be considered overdone. -- Peking Duck

Desslock Cain -- There's more than one way for a duck to skin you. -- Duck With
Swords

Mahovlich -- Similar question, I'd ask Frank or Pete, but there's really only one
acceptable answer, so I won't bother asking. -- Scrooge McDuck

Grayden Vale -- It might be time to consider golfing season. -- Mighty Duck

Horvanth Irnde -- I knew I was beginning to feel a little too big for my britches. --
Howard the Duck

Morgana Black -- Well, that wasn't what I expected!  I can tell you were all fired up
after your meeting.  Or hungry.  We had poutine at OUR meeting, which may have been a
mistake. -- Selaane

Scrooge -- Okay, admit it.  You all used to play for the Mighty Ducks, didn't you?
Only hockey players can fight like this! -- Mahovlich

     I went to the fights and a Hockey Game broke out?! -- NAIEI

Mastema -- That wasn't as fun as my first fight last time.  Ouch, my groin!  My leg!
my abdomen!  My stomach!  That wasn't fun at all, actually. -- Hakkinnen

Morgan Black -- Pas de quoi! -- Mahovlich

Peking Duck and the Ducks Unlimited -- Be assured that we do!  But as we said to
another manager a few days ago, you're here for your manager's enjoyment, and if he
doesn't feel like writing you some personals, so be it.  It isn't REQUIRED. -- Jorja
and the Middle Way

Lobo -- It is sad, but understandable, to see some of your old standbys go.  Good
little spotlight (spitlight?).  We bid farewell to Bash Artadi and Sylah Ventress. --
Jorja

Duck With Swords -- She says that pretty much describes HER Ski Mask.  Especially the
"red all over" part. -- Bettina Chim

Scrooge McDuck -- Well, hand me some, and I'll help you count! -- Ulrik Venn

Selaane -- (smirk) -- Wovern Yansy
P.S.  Actually, Smirk was on the Cheap Shots team here and graduated quite a while
ago.  Just as well, he was maddening.

Koivu -- Nice for YOU, maybe, but *I* didn't want it. -- Horvanth Irnde

Howard the Duck -- Ah!  Perfect. -- Horvanth Irnde

Peking Duck -- I had an appointment to get my hair done after the fights, and I
MISSED it because of you! -- Bettina Chim
P.S.  You'd think I could have learned something gladiatorial during sixteen minutes,
but I find it hard to read the body language of a Duck.

Malice -- How MALICIOUS of you. -- Salome Torene

Israfel -- This is the working out of some kind of curse, isn't it? -- Wovern Yansy

Black Guard -- That wasn't luck, it was superior skill. -- Ulrik Venn
P.S.  And possibly an input error on your part, but I don't mind.
