                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome XOCHITHLAN.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with HORVANTH 
IRNDE?  He actually beat WORLD BLADES 8's BRUNEI, and walked away with 25 more points 
from the fight.  Laughs were big at THE MIDDLE WAY while they watched HORVANTH IRNDE 
clobber BRUNEI.  He lost 23 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  Har har har!  Did GRAPHIC VIOLENCE wimp out, or just get lazy?  Anyway, it's 
not Duelmaster anymore.  I'm sure XOCHITHLAN is excited about MALICE, the new 
Duelmaster from DARQUE ANGELS.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I 
have...  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team 
is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...   
     Warriors of XOCHITHLAN unite.  You have only your games to lose!  How long have 
I been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
XOCHITHLAN is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time 
for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Duck with Swords -- We gotta tell you, having seen it in the feather, a Duck in a ski
mask looks really odd.  At best.  And it is seldom at any kind of "best." -- those
who follow the Middle Way

Graphic Violence in the arena?  What a surprise!

Howard the Duck -- How can I do otherwise?  I'm taller. -- Wovern Yansy

Peking Duck -- Yes, well, there were moments. -- Bettina Chim

Mighty Duck -- NOT what we expected! -- Horvanth Irnde, speaking for the whole team

Our congratulations to Graphic Violence. -- Jorja and those who walk the Middle Way

We salute the mail-in tourney participants, with a special nod for Ra, tourney
victor.  That means you return to regular arena life, right? -- Jorja and company,
again

Howard the Duck -- Well, that's one way to keep us tall guys from looking down on
you:  knock us down.  Ouch. -- Horvanth Irnde

Israfel -- It doesn't seem to help that my religion doesn't recognize "angels" as a
category of being.  Whatever you are, you're mean. -- Bettina Chim

Scrooge McDuck -- Well, I'm glad, I guess, that you're well-suited to your weapon,
but I would rather you'd lost.  Just one of those things, you know. -- Salome Torene

Dammit, what's hard to believe about me defeating the Janissary? -- Ulrik Venn the
Insulted

Ghost of Mighty Duck -- What the heck?  Sure, you were inviting death, coming out
with no armor and a "dies easily" style, but still.  It was unintentional, but I
don't seem to have hit my aiming location ONCE.  And it was NOT an "assassination."
That implies premeditation, and I did not premeditate that. -- Wovern Yansy
