                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in STORMCROWE since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Woof!  AMOEBA were a bunch 
of dogs after A DEAL'S A DEAL got through with 'em!  6th ain't so sweet as 1st!  
Hmmmph!  I always thought AMOEBA was an over-rated team and they proved it with a 
0-0-0!  What's with B.F. GOODRICH?  She actually beat NORTHERN LIGHTS' FROSTBITE, and 
walked away with 15 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at NORTHERN LIGHTS 
while they watched ICELINIA clobber LULU.  She lost 8 points and got bruised from 
objects thrown from the stands.  Try as she might, ZOEY wasn't good enough at 
persuading DEATH FOG to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Wouldn't it be 
nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses 
of convicted prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was 
SUPERIOR FORCES.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at DARQUE FORCES ain't 
reelin'!  SUPERIOR FORCES' mad!  How well I know the feeling of being the most 
challenged warrior, PYROTECHNICS!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to 
haunt you.   
     Warriors of STORMCROWE unite.  You have only your games to lose!  How long have 
I been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  The 
end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want to 
overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Frank Sinatra -- Croon all you like, Liverlips, t'will avail you not.  That was
"Liverlips" not "Swivelhips".  Wrong crooner, Chairman. -- Bertha

Pyrotechnics -- They don't make em like they used to. (hope you buy those by the
dozen) Or maybe I'm just that much better than I used to be.  Naaawwwww.  Still
lost...but I'm the moral type and that could be considered a moral victory. (what
with our fight differentials and all)  Course'n nobody's setting them up for moral
victories.  And the guys don't swoon over moral victories.  And the boss doesn't
bonus moral victories.... -- Zoey

Rose Guard -- Well, don't you go home smelling nice, guarding roses all the day long.
Boss says I'm the one who came out smelling like a rose on that one.  Boss's
inspirational imaginational comments need upgrading. -- Aunty Macassar

     Better 'n smelling like greasy kid stuff, I should think. -- Ed.

The Bride -- I feel a bit the heel, spoiling your grand debut and all.  You tripping
over your train, getting sand in your veil and...well, you know. -- Irene

Raggedy Ann -- That was a darque trick indeed, fluttering all those rags so I
couldn't see where, exactly, you were. -- Icelinia

Lulu -- Don't hit me there!  I'll blubber. -- Walrus

Who cares what happens to a Convicted Assassin?  Not me. -- Frostflare

(recoiling)  M. Chardinee's a Karnhorn!  KILL HIM! -- Shard

Santa -- I'm surprised to see you out in the busy season. -- Frostbite
P.S.  Cold enough to freeze your pseudopods, isn't it?

L. Protector Death Fog of Superior Forces -- Where did you come from?  I haven't
heard your voice in the arena!  Go away!  No lands, no, NO, NO! -- Arenamaster Nhor

Lady Protector Mother -- If you're set on having lands to go with the title, then go
find the person who gave you the title and demand lands from HER. -- Arenamaster Nhor
P.S.  Also, why should I care about litigation?  I'm not the one who'll have the
headache.
P.P.S.  But I hear that the King has a contract from the Isle which makes NO mention
of Stormcrowe providing land for anything except the building of the arena itself.
