                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome KATI-TEI.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with SKELLIE?  
It actually beat THE PLAGUE's N'KAI, and walked away with 23 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at ZOMBIE SQUAD while they watched SKELLIE clobber N'KAI.  He 
lost 20 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  See how the 
Duelmaster challenged THE STORM FRONT's WROLLING THUNDER?  That sort of initiative is 
how he got where he is now.  WROLLING THUNDER was reminded on the sands why 
FIREHYDRANT DEFILER is Duelmaster.  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.  The most avoided team was 
THE STORM FRONT.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at DA DOG POWNDAZ ain't 
reelin'!  THE STORM FRONT's mad!  What do people see in GRIMM LURCHER?  His 22-24-0?  
WANDERERS ain't talkin', but he's got 90 points.  Taunt your opponent TORE NAYDO!  
That was my lucky charm when I was unfairly challenged.  (and by 27 points!)  OLD 
YELLER should have an easy win.  I have to get this off my chest.  What a low dog, 
OLD YELLER!  He can't set himself up in a real match.  I was sorry to see TORE NAYDO 
lose.  I hate going to the effort of writing about the kind of fights that ENGLISH 
BULLDOG gets in.  He fights people like GRIMM LURCHER, 12 points below.  I thought 
ENGLISH BULLDOG showed great skill and promise when he overcame GRIMM LURCHER.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  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.  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

English Bulldog -- That's the kind of fight that makes me really grim.  Well done on
your part. -- Grimm Lurcher

Dust Devil -- Sometimes I get really tired of the dust, you know?  It's just too
much.  Then I get out the dust cloths, the dust mop, all that anti-dust gear.  You
picked a bad day to challenge me. -- Stella Marie

Dastardly Dog -- Ah... well, um, my teammates tell me that a loss will make me a
better, "more rounded" gladiator.  I don't see it, myself, but since I *have* the
loss now....  But only the one!  No more losses for me.  Remember that. -- Dancing
Shadow
P.S.  I don't see how a shadow can or *should* be "more rounded."

The Hand of Dog -- I knew a dog that was always "shaking hands" with people.  It was
all a trick while he figured out how to grab their pizzas. -- Samara

Trustworthy Scribe?  As if! -- Stray Cat
