                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome KATI-TEI.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Bein' on top is great 
while it lasts, WANDERERS.  But how many friends do you have now?  What's with KIWI?  
She actually beat KATI-TEI's POLITE BEGGAR, and walked away with 15 more points from 
the fight.  Laughs were big at FLAGG'S FIVE while they watched NYPD clobber ZEPHYRE.  
She lost 8 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Har har har!  
Did GWYN AP NUDD wimp out, or just get lazy?  Anyway, he's not Duelmaster anymore.  
I'm sure KATI-TEI is excited about AFRICAN GREY, the new Duelmaster from BIRDS.  
(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...  The most avoided team 
was FLAGG'S FIVE.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at BIRDS ain't reelin'!  
FLAGG'S FIVE's mad!  What do people see in FARMER'S GIRL?  Hers 17-28-1?  WANDERERS 
ain't talkin', but she's got 80 points.   
     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...   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
KATI-TEI 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

We did finally get our turn, but I don't see anything of unbearable interest that we
need to say, so...on with the current turn. -- Schendirk, Wanderers

Jehan -- I believe I'll name the replacement Jehu.  Seems fitting. -- Schendirk
P.S.  We are so glad you finally relieved us of Midl ofthe Road.  He was something of
a pest around the house.  Never picked up his socks.

Nypd -- That was sort of a "slam bam thank you ma'am" wasn't it?  Absolutely one-
shotted me. -- Farmer's Girl

Gwyn ap Nudd -- You write a splendid column.  Do it often. -- Zephyre

M. Chardinee

African Grey -- Ah...we've done this before, haven't we?  It all seems so familiar.

All -- Remember to put your arena number on your strategy sheets.  Strategies turned
in without an arena number run the risk of missing the turn. -- NAIEI

To All -- Fellow managers, I humbly request your help.  My team (Ex Oblivione) was
started in Monuntial (DM 34) back in '92.  They were active for seven months.  I have
lost all early traces of them.  If any of you can help with copies of relevant
newsletters or, if you fought one of my warriors, copies of the fights, I would
greatly appreciate it.  I only have one of my original warriors left from the early
team now active in DM 60.  You can diplo me with any info here in the wonderful city
of Aradi.  Thank you in advance. -- Enigma, manager Ex Oblivione

Assurnasirbanipal invites all to use his computerized warrior management tool.  The
program is the most extensive management tool ever created.  It was meant to run on a
PALM OS PDA, but will run (emulated) on a PC or MAC.  You can get this program on the
web at: http://www.geocities.com/assurnasir

27 May 2003
A note to everyone regarding manager names and manager lists -- If you're running a
team incognito, all you have to do is let me know and I won't put your name on any
manager lists.  It has seemed though, that more people want their names listed, even
if they do not announce themselves, than the other way around.  Also, I do maintain
the list more or less by hand and errors do creep in.  You have but to say I've made
an error and no one will be the wiser (except thee and me, of course). -- The Saint,
keeper of lists
