                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of FRATSFA!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Woof!  WAH CHING were a bunch of 
dogs after BASH BROS ROAD SIGN got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so sweet as 1st!  It 
seems so recently people were saying DRAGONS GUARD II was washed up, finished.  But 
3-1-0 moved them up 1.  I guess they're washed no more...  What's with SEI BHAT PO?  
She actually beat FLOWER GIRLS' HATEFUL HASTA, and walked away with 19 more points 
from the fight.  Laughs were big at WAH CHING while they watched SEI BHAT PO clobber 
HATEFUL HASTA.  She lost 18 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  FLOWER GIRLS' hatred of JADE WARRIORS surfaced again as GLOATING GARDENIA 
challenged FRATSFA's top dog.  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for FLOWER GIRLS' 
outstanding member, Duelmaster GLOATING GARDENIA.  Advice to fighters with a 1 
will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  
FRATSFA thinks WAH CHING and their 73-64-8 is too much!  If at first you don't 
succeed, give up...  The bums at FLOWER GIRLS couldn't face the challenges from WAH 
CHING!  No excuse for that!  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged 
warrior, HU YAN ZHUO!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, 
fight dirty.   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  The end 
of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want to 
overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Lord Protectors Jasmin and Lui Ki -- Congratulations on your graduation.  Perhaps a
last fling at The Flower House is a terrific way for you to celebrate?  You will be
glad you did. -- Lady Fern

Duelmistress Jasmin -- Kudos!  For you a special honor--both DM and LP--all five
Flower Girls want to help you celebrate at their expense.  Expect to stay up all
night and to be very well satisfied. (wink) -- Lady Fern

Assur -- Perhaps your problem with communications and information is that it has just
been way too long since you have been fulfilled.  A visit to The Flower Shoppe should
set things right. -- Lady Fern and The Flower Girls

Deadly Rage -- Thanks for picking me and letting me finish on top.  I just loved it!
-- Petulant Pansy, Flower Girls

Li Kui -- I am glad you enjoyed that.  Fewer people seem to enjoy mud wrestling these
days.  (sigh)  I loved the way you tickeled my fancy. -- Caustic Crocus, Flower Girls

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all. -- Lady Fern and The Flower Girls
P.S.  Yes, The Flower Shoppe is open both days for your holiday pleasure.

Assur -- Well, that tells me half of it, because I didn't send Corpse Rat in to
fight.  It would seem that my teams are trying to tell me something:  One, that they
like you more than me, and two, that I'm not giving them enough sand time.  I'll have
to pick one arena and put all my time & money to them.  Ten years I have been at this
and only have put one of my undead to AD--man, I need to get off my hands and run a
team to the end. -- Liam the Goth
P.S.  Hope TW is going well for you.

Lady Fern -- Good to see that you are in good form as always.  Buddy Lee had me sign
my first team over to him at sword point, then he sends to Baylars to take my second
team, and moves it to 54.  So here is team #3, who seems to have jumped the axe on
me--goes that way.  I'll be here in Jan or Feb for 2 or 3 turns, then I need to sit
down and come up with what I'm going to do as a manager.  I should ask Oz, but Oz may
say no, he's much too worked up with the TW and the movie of his life story and all.
So I stand at the crossroads wondering what it is I should do, and where I should
fight--yes, that's the big Q on my mind.  Maybe I should join one of those groups, or
get a pet hellcat, or an ice cream cone, or etc.... -- Liam

     Pick an arena to focus on, and I can promise at least one other will take up the
     same focus.  Who knows what might happen then?  Jorja promises spotlights to
     match spotlights you might write. -- Ed.

Middle Way -- There's nothing wrong with being grumpy, no sirree.  You could get a
pet winged horse, that will stir up all kinds of fun for you.  No time to be grumpy
with a flesh-eating horse at the club house.  In fact, I'll send one over with one of
my custom rain spells, on the house. -- Liam

All -- Happy Christmas and New Year to one and all, and hope to see some of you in
Jan-Feb. -- Liam

Lashing Lily -- Now that the DA has had its way with you, welcome to unlife.  I have
a place for you on this team--I have to end two of my ghouls and you, my pretty,
would fit in nicely. -- Liam
P.S.  Flesh-eating Lily or Rotting Lily has a nice sound to it. *evil laugh*

Unreadable -- Good fight.  You should have won, but I'm a Consortium-built flesh
golem. -- Corpse Rot

Liam -- See what happens when you don't fight us?  We get Assur to do it for us--he's
twice the manager you are and he's not on a blood diet like you are, and the Sun
likes him, too. -- Corpse Rot (sticking tongue out)

Corpse Rot -- Gee thanks, just what I wanted to hear from my team.  Why do I do this?
-- Liam

Be out of touch 'til the new year. -- Liam

Has Crip lost it without the NHL?  The last time was scary, yes it was. -- Liam

Our congratulations to Jasmin and Li Kui. -- Jorja and those who walk the Middle Way

Wei Yan -- Yep, you're a devastating guy.  I don't mind. -- Ursila Rilvar
P.S.  Although skills would be good.

Jasmin -- You deserve your Invitation to the Isle.  I salute you. -- Salina Rees

Unreadable -- Especially at normal highway speeds. -- Ellis Tate, not sure where he's
going

ALL -- MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL IN ALASTARI!!!
May your year end in peace and the new year hold great things for you and your
families. -- Gentleben (Sunset-21, Morya-28, Arvat-32 and Talahya-100)
