                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of ROCANIS!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with SWYTAI?  She actually 
beat MEDAL OF HONOR A11's SERGEANT 3, and walked away with 15 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at MEDAL OF HONOR A11.  SERGEANT 3 lost 10 points to SWYTAI.  
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe SERGEANT 3 will provide more easy wins...  I'm 
sure ROCANIS is excited about NIGHT CRAWLER, the new Duelmaster from THEM.  
(remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  Advice to fighters with a 1 
will--give up fighting!   
     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, FAVORITE SAYINGS!  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at GRIZZLED VETERANS ain't reelin'!  FAVORITE 
SAYINGS' mad!   
     Warriors of ROCANIS 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.  All work 
and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

around here! -- Ferria Hough

As if!  You're just BLOCKING us.  We'll rise to new occasions. -- Denna Feyl, for the
