                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of TEMPLE OF ABARSIS!  Once again I've been called out of 
retirement for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Biff!  Pow!  TEMPLE OF 
ABARSIS watched with glee as ALASKAN PIPELINE got knocked off top spot by VEGAN 
CANNIBALS!  Who can explain it?  Not you, not me, not DARQUE FORCES' opponents, after 
watching them shoot up the ranks from 17th to 5th.  VEGAN CANNIBALS showed TEMPLE OF 
ABARSIS what they were made of as they fought with a vengeance to walk off with 
5-0-0.  What's with AGOSERIS?  She actually beat BLACK LIGHTNING's DARTANYON, and 
walked away with 34 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at DARQUE FORCES 
while they watched STARSCREAM clobber BLADE.  He lost 17 points and got bruised from 
objects thrown from the stands.  Apparently TEMPLE OF ABARSIS isn't filled with as 
many gutless wonders as I thought.  The Dreaded Duelmaster got 6 challenges this 
turn!  Another fighter (RACECAR 16-21-1) challenged another Duelmaster (KATIE 
15-8-2).  Life goes on.  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for PALINDROMES' 
outstanding member, Duelmaster RACECAR.  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.  TEMPLE OF ABARSIS thinks 
ALASKAN PIPELINE and their 63-34-2 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give 
up...  Management must be dealin', as the boys at PALINDROMES ain't reelin'!  ALASKAN 
PIPELINE's mad!  Taunt your opponent HAWKEYE!  That was my lucky charm when I was 
unfairly challenged.  (and by 23 points!)  PARTY TRAP should have an easy win.  PARTY 
TRAP beat HAWKEYE.  I bet PARTY TRAP could beat two-year-olds, too.  Well, SECOND 
BANANAS knows who to set their sights on.  TIA RELWAN didn't quite know what to make 
of a challenge she received from DILECTONON FERIO of IN QETERNUM, who is 18 points 
below her.  DILECTONON FERIO perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he bested TIA 
RELWAN and ended up with 25 recognition points.  I hate going to the effort of 
writing about the kind of fights that ULTIMA REGUM gets in.  He fights people like 
LUCCIO, 9 points below.  I thought ULTIMA REGUM showed great skill and promise when 
he was defeated by LUCCIO.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Sending a warrior to the Dark Arena reminds the 
others they'd better shape up.  Tough beans, SCOTT.  That's what a 13-11-0 gets you.  
ISA KOBBES looked pretty sick and surprised when he learned LES TURFISTES is sending 
him to the Dark Arena!  Whadd'he expect with a 6-6-0?  Sending a warrior to the Dark 
Arena reminds the others they'd better shape up.  Tough beans, SLOPPY FOE.  That's 
what a 5-6-0 gets you.  CARLOS looked pretty sick and surprised when he learned TEAM 
BLACKSTAFF is sending him to the Dark Arena!  Whadd'he expect with a 3-8-0?  AGOSERIS 
proved too determined for DARTANYON.  DARTANYON was lucky to go in the ring, with 
17-10-0 to his credit.  He will be remembered.  Many a warrior has met his fate in a 
hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
TEMPLE OF ABARSIS is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  
I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen
