                             Notes from the arena champ.

      Huh, M. Chardinee this time.  An orc.  He was easy.  I laughed at him, too.

                                       Rockjaw

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to RODEKI once again!  Bein' on top is great while it lasts, 
DELVERS.  But how many friends do you have now?  What's with BADGER?  He actually 
beat KLK RANGE HAMMERZ's JOHN WAYNE HAMMER, and walked away with 12 more points from 
the fight.  Laughs were big at RODEKI while they watched KUNG-FU MASTER clobber 
FREDIBAR.  He lost 11 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  M. 
CHARDINEE was reminded on the sands why ROCKJAW is Duelmaster.  I suppose you want to 
hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  RODEKI thinks KLK RANGE 
HAMMERZ and their 8-10-1 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at COLOR ME SUAVE ain't reelin'!  KLK RANGE 
HAMMERZ's mad!  What do people see in WOLVERINE?  His 2-1-0?  BEASTIAL LEGION ain't 
talkin', but he's got 28 points.  Taunt your opponent FERRET!  That was my lucky 
charm when I was unfairly challenged.  (and by 27 points!)  MOP should have an easy 
win.  MOP dealt death to  FERRET.  I bet MOP could beat two-year-olds, too.  Well, 
BEASTIAL LEGION 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?  MOP had a sure-fire victory when she challenged FERRET, 27 
points below her.  Was anyone really surprised when FERRET bit it?  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

Oh, FINE, Rockjaw stirs up the Khalhums Dwarf last time, and then *I* draw him and
he's MAD.  JUST what I needed to cap my week. -- Handsome Does

No wonder that assassin was caught and convicted.  He's an orc, and however deadly
they are, they just don't do subtle at all well. -- Fredibar

Dangerous Criminal and I won?  Outtasight!  Makes my day. -- Leafcutter Beal

And to finish the "nothing but standbys" line-up for us, the Fratsfa Slave.  A joke.
-- Rocksock

Unknown Stinky Person -- I like to take my time and do things correctly. -- Rocksock

All -- I support Vendetta Cartel's observation of The Dark Knights!  If war is
declared on V.C. by The Dark Knights, then war is also declared on The Dark Knights
of the Desolate Empire by The Avengers of Light!  We have been quietly awaiting such
a chance to expose ourselves (all interested parties contact me c/o The Barbarians:
DM 31, Attn: Timothias)!  Come, Vendetta Cartel, let us show these broke-down
"Knights" what true warriors are! -- Gemini Goldphoenix, Overlord of The Avengers of
Light

26 August 2006
The Avengers of Light.  Another VC lackey?  What's the matter VC, are you scared?
Bringing in reinforcements.  It matters not, bring your avengers and they shall be
crushed!  I am Dark Knight Blackstorm and I represent the Desolate Empire and can
easily be found in 8, 28, 31, 47, 54, and 106.  I reply with steel and your women
shall cry when they start the body count!!!!!!!!!  Remember to sign your posts to
whoever from the VC wrote that earlier Ad. -- Dark Knight Blackstorm
