                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in XOCHITHLAN since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Bein' on top is great 
while it lasts, THE MIDDLE WAY.  But how many friends do you have now?  Ya gotta be 
quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the pain!  
PARKLAND is now ranked 2nd with a 3-1-0 turn.  What's with PARRY-SLICE?  He actually 
beat WORLD BLADES 8's BRUNEI, and walked away with 22 more points from the fight.  
Laughs were big at ANYWAYUSLICEIT while they watched PARRY-SLICE clobber BRUNEI.  He 
lost 18 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  ULRIK VENN was 
reminded on the sands why SOVEREIGN is Duelmaster.  Wouldn't it be nice to have live 
subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted 
prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was 
DUCKS UNLIMITED.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at CHAOS WARRIORS ain't 
reelin'!  DUCKS UNLIMITED's mad!  How well I know the feeling of being the most 
challenged warrior, SWAN!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  
MASTEMA expects the easy win by going 27 points down.  BETTINA CHIM will find this a 
hard lesson!  MASTEMA bested BETTINA CHIM.  I bet MASTEMA could beat two-year-olds, 
too.  Well, THE MIDDLE WAY knows who to set their sights on.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Sending a warrior to the Dark Arena reminds the others they'd 
better shape up.  Tough beans, AERY.  That's what a 7-4-0 gets you.  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.  
XOCHITHLAN is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  
Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- 
Olaf Modeen

Parkland -- A 21 point down challenge when you had reachable opponents above you?
I'm not against down challenging, I did it myself last turn.  But, you will note
there was no one above me to challenge.  Even we villains have our code of honor, no
matter how skewed.  Consider yourself now on the shortlist of teams that I will down
challenge at will.  I would suggest protecting vitals if you are ever in range of my
team. -- Master Darque, mgr. Darque Angels

Jorja -- Obligatory apology for the down challenge. -- Master Darque

Our congratulations to Duck with Swords.  Keep those skyjackers out of the
Missississippi Flyway! -- Jorja and those who walk the Middle Way

Three-two, with two of the wins being over standbys and the third being "lucky."  Oh,
well. -- Salome Torene
