                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in VEASTIAN since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with QUEEN RANDI?  
She actually beat THE FAMILY's J'KOROU, and walked away with 25 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at CIV LEADERS while they watched CYRUS clobber PRINCE 
JACKSON.  He lost 17 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  
PRINCE CONNOR was reminded on the sands why KRYSTAL MEYERS 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...   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Sending a warrior to the Dark Arena reminds the others they'd 
better shape up.  Tough beans, DAVID CROWDER.  That's what a 8-7-0 gets you.  Yeah, 
yeah, EMBEZZLING SCRIBE killed OMNASIN, who was "too young to die."  Well, he was a 
fighter, and that's what you have to face.  I like to see warriors put young 
whippersnappers in their place.  I guess you could say VEASTIAN'EMBEZZLING SCRIBE did 
just that.  Right THE FAMILY?  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger 
every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  VEASTIAN 
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

Kyrstal Meyers -- It's all yours!  Enjoy it. -- J'Korou

Queen Randi -- Ma'am, it was an hornor to encounter you.  Why, the way you hit a man
upside the head was a revelation.  I'm sure no one would dare question your edicts.
-- Bitt Betro

Mechan -- Not obscure enough, apparently. -- Senjiro

A Convicted Thief?  How... petty. -- Taliskia

The Mordant Deserter hardly seemed worth the effort. -- Omnasin

Lord Protector J'Korou -- So you're graduating, I congratulate you.  But gifts?  Do
you think we're made of money here?  I see no point in wasting a gift on someone
who's leaving, well, except in a few particular sorts of cases.  And you haven't made
yourself so objectionable that we have to bribe you to leave.  You're getting
agelessness, job security, and guaranteed resurrection, and it seems to me that this
should be enough for any man.  Especially for one who is not of the True Blood, but I
don't suppose you can help that.  For what it is worth, you have my congratulations
and doubtless that of the rest of the arena staff. -- Zhorg Enkharaj, Arena Manager
