                                      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 DALAN HILLEI?  
He actually beat ASIAN INVASION's MEI LU, and walked away with 19 more points from 
the fight.  Major screwup at ASIAN INVASION.  QUI GONG lost 10 points to LEVANDAR.  
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe QUI GONG will provide more easy wins...  DESERT 
PEARL was reminded on the sands why DIAN WEI is Duelmaster.  I suppose you want to 
hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  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.  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

Seems like my last two personals were printed on last week's newsletter. *shrug*  The
scribes writeth... -- Lobo, mgr SW5

Mei Lu -- Not the fighting style I expected, or I wouldn't have been so quick to
challenge...turned out fine, though. -- Jax Nazareth

Dalan Hillei -- didn't know what to expect or who had the style advantage against
who, in our case.  My manager has little to no experience against or with your style
either, so I believe a few avoids are in order... -- Fernia the Red

Perhaps as a spellcaster, the mage's apprentice would fare better? -- Asmodeus Asorii

     Nah, he's hopeless.

Ditto. -- Igraine Le Fay

Congratulation, Dian Wei.  Way to hold it down. -- Lobo and the Steel Wolves

All -- Sorry, no personals at all from us today (beyond this, of course).  Stuff has

come up, as it does from time to time, and time has gotten away from us.  I fact,
it's galloping away from us.  Darned if we know what's going on. -- whichever of
Jorja's teams is running here.
