                                      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.  Ya gotta be quick 
on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the pain!  OK, WE'RE 
HERE is now ranked 6th with a 0-0-0 turn.  What's with IMOTO-CHAN?  She actually beat 
RED DOG GANG's LITTLE BIG DOG, and walked away with 9 more points from the fight.  
Laughs were big at COLLUSION COVE while they watched TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE clobber ORLA 
GREY.  She lost 9 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  NOBLE 
ASSASSIN was reminded on the sands why SHMEGMA 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.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master 
many skills, fight dirty.   
     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

Well, that Pheasant made ME Happy.  I like chasing pheasants better than ducks, their
feathers aren't as oily. -- Lassie

Iron Hyde -- Damn, you are.  I tried to put the bite on you--it's my job as a dog--
and I couldn't.  Almost broke a tooth, in fact! -- Little Big Dog

Imoto-Chan -- You learn new tricks good, and I guess that means I teach 'em good,
huh? -- Flummax

The Visiting Orc deserved every bite!  Every one. -- BB Bully Boy

Our congratulations to Shmegma, I guess. -- Spot and the Red Dog Gang

We salute the tourney participants. -- the Red Dog Gang

To all Aradi -- It's been a long journey from Monutial to here and now to the Isle.
Thank you all for making this parry lunger's career exciting!  'Til I see you on the
sands again! -- Samatha Hain

Spot & The Red Dog Gang -- Thanks for the congrats.  It has been quite a journey. --
Enigma

Shmegma -- Even if I had found Merven's stash of Goodies for Grads, I 
wouldn't give you anything.  I'm feeling churlish today, and I don't 
see why you shouldn't suffer for it. -- Arenamaster Harkon
