                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome FRATSFA.  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!  WEATHER is now 
ranked 4th with a 4-1-0 turn.  Some people say I ramble too much, I don't say 
anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I ramble.  Well THE CHOSEN ONES moved up 2, to 
3rd.  What's with URSILA RILVAR?  She actually beat THE CHOSEN ONES' ABU JR., and 
walked away with 16 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at THE CHOSEN ONES.  
ABU JR. lost 13 points to URSILA RILVAR.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe ABU 
JR. will provide more easy wins...  Apparently FRATSFA isn't filled with as many 
gutless wonders as I thought.  The Dreaded Duelmaster got 2 challenges this turn!  
Try as he might, GRAFFITI wasn't good enough at persuading SETI to step down from the 
Duelmaster's throne...  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.  The 
most avoided team was DRAGONS GUARD II.  In my day, no team with a 134-119-13 would 
scare me off!  What's the problem, FREEDOM FARCE?   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  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.  
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

Another oh-fer!  We need standbys! -- Ursila Rilvar

Graffiti -- It would have HELPED if, when you "turned the corner," you hadn't stopped
to write all over it!  The city has to pay someone to come along behind you and clean
it off, you know.  It makes the authorities bitter and spiteful. -- Ursila Rilvar

Strahd -- You're a little tall for a dwarf, aren't you? -- Ellis Tate, just curious,
not critical.

In the interest of preserving our natural resources and preventing managerial writer's 
cramp, the census form has been eliminated, effective immediately.  Managers may 
register their warriors' races and/or favorite sayings by simply writing them on a 
separate piece of paper and submitting them to the Commission.  Each warrior may have 
up to 15 favorite sayings.  Each saying must be categorized Jeer, Gloat, Boredom, Ouch, 
Victory and may be up to 80 characters long.  For any questions, please contact the 
Gladiatorial Commission.
