                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in FRATSFA since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with HOT 
HONEYSUCKLE?  She actually beat FRATSFA's TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE, and walked away with 21 
more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at DRAGONS GUARD II while they watched 
LEIA clobber FAT LIP.  It lost 16 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  See how the Duelmaster challenged MIDDLE WAY 8's SALINA REES?  That sort of 
initiative is how it got where it is now.  Try as she might, SALINA REES wasn't good 
enough at persuading DARGON 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.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  
FRATSFA thinks OTTO'S PARTS and their 340-311-17 is too much!  If at first you don't 
succeed, give up...  Management must be dealin', as the boys at BASH BROS ROAD SIGN 
ain't reelin'!  OTTO'S PARTS' mad!  How well I know the feeling of being the most 
challenged warrior, SALINA REES!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt 
you.   
     Warriors of FRATSFA 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?  Are 
you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Congrats to new Duelmaster Dargon.  We want a piece of that! -- The Flower Girls

you. -- Massive Migraine

Massive Migrain -- You sure are. -- Moe

Wei Yan -- Destroying our signs is a no-no.  Expect to see me for the full time of
the bloodfeud, though Assur's idea of vengeance is only victory, not blood for blood.
-- Hidden

Sun Qian -- Thanks for the skills. -- Graffiti

                                NAME CHANGE-O-RAMA

    There was a line outside the Gladiatorial Commission's registry office.  There 
often was, but surely not now?  Alarond the Scribe, who had drawn office duty today, 
frowned at them.
    A stocky, fit, moderately handsome gladiator stepped up to the counter.  "I want a 
name-change," he said.  "How can I do my best known as," he shuddered, "'Dangling 
Eyeball'?  My name is Joe, and I want to use it."
    A small and very shapely woman stepped up beside him.  "And I am really tired of 
being known as 'DA Bait'."  She smiled, causing Alarond to sway where he stood.  "I'd 
like to be known as... Aphrodite, I think."
    The others crowded forward, each advancing a claim, the babble of voice rising to 
a roar, the crowd beginning to look like a mob--and every member of it armed and 
dangerous.
    Alarond raised his hands to quiet them, without much success.  He raised his 
voice, too.  "We'll do it!  A Name-Change-O-Rama, as soon as we can get the paperwork 
lined up!  Two or three months, maybe--"
    The gladiators howled in protest at the delay.
    "No, listen!  The files here are HUGE, it will take time to get everything 
straight.  You've got to be patient.  It WILL happen!"
