                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in RODEKI since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  INTELLECTS OF HIPHOP 
showed RODEKI what they were made of as they fought with a vengeance to walk off with 
3-1-0.  What's with KARLIGRENA?  She actually beat COLOR ME SUAVE's C-PAPPY, and 
walked away with 18 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at DELVERS.  ELIFAS 
KENT lost 14 points to TALIB KWELI.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe ELIFAS KENT 
will provide more easy wins...  KOOL MOE DEE was reminded on the sands why SOCKLESS 
CRITIC 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.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  SLASH 
of SHREDDERS knows how to pick 'em.  He challenged JURGENHALEN of DELVERS who is up 
by 25.  Now was this a wise move?  SLASH perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he 
subdued JURGENHALEN and ended up with 25 recognition points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  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.  
RODEKI 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

Pasdanous -- Why did...?  Oh, okay.  The fans have it out for you, and I beat you,
so... they like me.  Fickle beast, the fans. -- Elifas Kent
P.S.  And, of course, I'm an orc, which means a splendid physical specimen.

Trugoy the Dove -- My momma has a great recipe for dove pot pie.  Better than
chicken, you know, because the meat is a little gamey.  Gamy?  Some people like that,
and it's a good excuse for cooking with wine. -- Karligrena
P.S.  Good skills, thanks.

C-Pappy -- If you say so. -- Isengalen the dubious

Talib Kweli -- I couldn't hiphop fast enough to keep UP with you.  Ouch. --
Jurgenhalen

I look on the Mordant Deserter with scorn. -- Igrina Sockinette
