                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of RODEKI!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Biff!  Pow!  RODEKI watched with 
glee as FLAGG'S FIVE got knocked off top spot by SHREDDERS!  What's with HIPPO 
HUNTRESS?  She actually beat SHREDDERS' SLASH, and walked away with 17 more points 
from the fight.  Major screwup at SHREDDERS.  SLASH lost 12 points to HIPPO HUNTRESS. 
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe SLASH will provide more easy wins...  Another 
fighter (RIMA ADLER 24-14-1) challenged another Duelmaster (C-PAPPY 21-11-0).  Life 
goes on.  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for FLAGG'S FIVE's outstanding member, 
Duelmaster RIMA ADLER.  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...  RODEKI thinks SHREDDERS 
and their 100-72-7 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at FLAGG'S FIVE ain't reelin'!  SHREDDERS' 
mad!  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, TRUGOY THE 
DOVE!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  MONDAY NITE FOOTBALL of COLOR ME SUAVE didn't know 
when to quit.  When you've got a 5-4-0, that's a good sign.  Now it's dead.  Is it my 
imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so 
gloriously!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  All 
work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Gaven Adler -- No, no, you're doing FINE. -- Elifas Kent

Hippo Huntress -- Word has reached us that Osksi's Hungry Hippo is graduating!
You'll find that one on the Isle.  And you're correct, there seems to have been
another one floating around (in so far as a hippo floats) during the tourney.  Maybe
one of the transfer arenas?  Anyway, good luck with them!  I'll help if I can. --
