                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to ROCANIS once again!  What's with DROXINE?  She actually beat 
INCONSISTENT FURY's FRANKIE TOO, and walked away with 14 more points from the fight.  
Major screwup at MIDDLE WAY 20.  MERVIN OLDES lost 12 points to SNAKE BITE.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe MERVIN OLDES will provide more easy wins...  Har har har! 
Did LOIS THUG wimp out, or just get lazy?  Anyway, she's not Duelmaster anymore.  I 
can barely restrain my enthusiam for THEM's outstanding member, Duelmaster POW!.  I 
suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  
Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, STRAIGHT UP THUG!  In 
my day, no team with a 75-64-4 would scare me off!  What's the problem, INCONSISTENT 
FURY?   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  DRAKEN-KORIN was plum wore out after LINKIN LOGGER pounded 'im 
silly in a Bloodfeud.  MEN OF STEEL'll have to get a little better before going after 
LINKIN LOGGER again!  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.  The end 
of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want to 
overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Inconsistent Fury -- Sorry about missing last turn for your bloodfeud.  I'll try to
stay active for the next couple of turns. -- Howlin' Wolf

Tam Tam -- I hope it's a GOOD apple tree.  You know this team took over the Bad
Apples guildhouse. -- Ghost of Chebab Erle

Kulgan -- It was bitter disappointment that led me to that perhaps-excessive
violence.  I'd thought you were the water-treatment guy coming to improve our well.
-- Gerhart Ervin

Francis Thug -- Ouch. -- Mervin Oldes
P.S.  "Patched up and sent home"?  Like I was a pair of old shoes.

Mage's Apprentices should be subdued at every opportunity.  Bunch of reckless,
feckless idiots. -- Gaston Ipps

Droxine -- It must've been the mickey-finn in my water bottle. -- Denna Feyl

Snake Bite -- Yow!  I was jumping around like a Mexican bean to stay away from your
fangs. -- Ferria Hough
