                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of TRICORUS!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with VARGOI?  He actually 
beat RAISING R'LYEH's COLOROUTOFSPACE, and walked away with 16 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at RAISING R'LYEH.  COLOROUTOFSPACE lost 13 points to VARGOI.  
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe COLOROUTOFSPACE will provide more easy wins...  
I'm sure TRICORUS is excited about THE JONAH, the new Duelmaster from BLACK 
CONVENTICLE.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  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.  The 
most avoided team was DARK HORSEMEN.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at 
RAISING R'LYEH ain't reelin'!  DARK HORSEMEN's mad!  How well I know the feeling of 
being the most challenged warrior, JAROMIR!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come 
back to haunt you.  I hate going to the effort of writing about the kind of fights 
that RAMBLE ON gets in.  He fights people like JAROMIR, 10 points below.  I thought 
RAMBLE ON showed great skill and promise when he overcame JAROMIR.  All right, so I 
slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Warriors of TRICORUS unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Someone told 
COLOROUTOFSPACE that DARK HORSEMEN never Bloodfeuded, that he'd have an easy kill.  
Well, I'm sure whoever misled you is right sorry.  VOICES IN MY HEAD was plum wore 
out after WHOLE LOTTA LUV pounded 'im silly in a Bloodfeud.  RAISING R'LYEH'll have 
to get a little better before going after WHOLE LOTTA LUV again!  Is it my 
imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so 
gloriously!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
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

R.P.P. -- So your down challenge on turn 471 doesn't count?  Please...be any way you
like, just be consistent.... -- Voices in My Head

R.P.P. -- I will endeavor not to miss any further turns.  My travels caused me to
miss several turns in various arenas last month.  We can keep this up as long as you
like. -- Reaper, Mgr. Raising R'lyeh 

Voices In My Head -- I don't know how you avoided my bloodfeud again!  I'll try as
long as necessary. -- R.P.P.

All -- My record here has not been great.  Maybe after this turn, I'll get decent
replacements. -- R.P.P.

     *What are you bribing the RUG's with?

All -- I am not a rookie, I've been around the game for about 5 years.  Starting this
turn, try to guess who I am.  I will give a clue each turn.  Clue #1:  My first
alliance was the V.C. -- R.P.P.

Rambleon -- I'll give you one more chance! -- R.P.P.

Ramble On -- Oh, dear.  Tell your manager to check his charts and get you a different
weapon.  That line about unorthodox is a style conflict.  Get yourself a weapon to
which you are well-suited and you may do better. -- Kalmbargh

I would gladly have killed that Osksi Noble.  Who do they think they are to come here
and swank around? -- Garanh

Voices in My Head -- That's good, you'll never be lonely. -- Vargoi

Convicted Thief?  Bah. -- Saralai

Jaromir -- An unlucky match for you, especially in that you didn't learn anything.  I
was teaching, but you were not paying attention. -- Tialvai Graywind

Our congratulations to Cargo, tourney victor. -- Jorja and the Dark Horsemen
