                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome TRICORUS.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Ya gotta be quick on 
yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the pain!  VENTURE 
BROS. is now ranked 2nd with a 1-1-0 turn.  What's with TRUCKULES?  He actually beat 
TRICORUS' FRATSFA SLAVE, and walked away with 11 more points from the fight.  Har har 
har!  Did BAIT 4 wimp out, or just get lazy?  Anyway, it's not Duelmaster anymore.  I 
can barely restrain my enthusiam for WEIRD STUDENTS' outstanding member, Duelmaster 
TAME TODD.  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, 
places to go...   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  TRICORUS 
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

For your Yuletide bloodletting pleasure, sung to the tune of "Winter Wonderland."

                          Slay bells ring, are ya listenin'?

                         A grisly sight, we're happy tonight,
                         Watchin' all the Dark Arena fights!

                       In the daytime we can catch the action,
                         as the Duelmaster defends his crown!
                         All the criticals and bloody drama,
                     and if you're nasty you can challenge down!

                              Later on, by tavern fire,
                             managers, they'll conspire,
                        to face unafraid, the challenges made,
                            Duelin' in that Alastari land!

Wishing all good D2 managers a Happy Holidays!
