                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in TROCAR since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with LEVANDAR?  He 
actually beat KIWI CONNECTION II's DENMARK, and walked away with 21 more points from 
the fight.  Major screwup at KIWI CONNECTION II.  DENMARK lost 17 points to LEVANDAR. 
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe DENMARK will provide more easy wins...  Try as 
she might, WYON wasn't good enough at persuading TONG PAK FU 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.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...   
     Warriors of TROCAR unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Many a warrior has 
met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  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.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

We salute the tourney participants. -- Jorja and the Traders of Trocar

Tong Pak Fu -- I found you confusing, couldn't decide if I should haul out my
chopsticks and dipping sauce or run for my life.  In the end, I did neither, which
was a mistake.  But I couldn't find a really good dipping sauce anyway. -- Worzeel

Qiong Ying -- Clearly, you are a delicate flower, too fragile for this arena life.
If you would care to allow me to take you under my protection, to shelter you from
the harshness of the world, it would be an honor to me and a great pleasure. --
Harazim Koreh

Zhuge Liang -- That just seems WRONG, since I'm so much larger (and probably more
magnificent, though one cannot, of course, judge oneself objectively).  Maybe you
should be... Zhmall Liang? -- Levandar

Dacre -- Oh.  For some reason, I thought you were either a dagger, or a bamboo cane.
Ah... maybe you're a bamboo sword-cane! -- Desert Pearl

Sage -- If that isn't JUST LIKE a woman, always having to be FIRST.  Rats. -- Hazzan
Kazzar
