                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in COLLUSION COVE since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf 
Modeen adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Phhbltt!  Too much 
drinking and too little dodging gave HIT ME WITH... a 0-3-0!  I got a good laugh out 
of it!  Ya gotta be quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  
Block out the pain!  RED DOG GANG is now ranked 2nd with a 3-1-0 turn.  What's with 
APEP?  He actually beat HIT ME WITH...'s BLUE ICE, and walked away with 27 more 
points from the fight.  BUSTED NUTS was reminded on the sands why RAZOR XXV is 
Duelmaster.  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some 
team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  The 
most avoided team was ELOQUENT KNIGHTS.  In my day, no team with a 182-116-8 would 
scare me off!  What's the problem, NIHILISTIC ENDEAVOR?   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  We all knew it had to happen sooner or later.  A warrior can't 
stick around with a 12-14-0, and APEP easily took care of BLUE ICE.  Here's some 
advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  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

Shmegma -- I won't!  What a rotten idea. -- Flummax

Green Disease -- I don't understand that kind of thing.  Is it like eating grass?
Cows have that, and look at them. -- Little Big Dog

Iron Hyde -- Wow, you mean not even a Rolled Up Newspaper can hurt you?  That's
amazing. -- Lassie

There's something SUSPICIOUS about a Beggar.  They're just ASKING to be bitten. -- BB
Bully Boy

I suppose this is an improvement of sorts, since only the Beggar was called out to
fight.  And who cares about a Beggar, anyway, polite OR persistent?  Still, only ten
fights, and two of them Dark Arena matches?  Not promising. -- Arenamaster Harkon
P.S.  And the Crazy Creeps didn't fight.  A very bad sign.
