                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of ARADI!  Once again I've been called out of retirement for 
my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with ARLENE?  She actually beat 
MEDAL OF HONOR B11's SERGEANT 4, and walked away with 15 more points from the fight.  
Laughs were big at MEDAL OF HONOR B11 while they watched SERGEANT 5 clobber THE 
BLUNDERDOG.  He lost 5 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  
Our Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to KHALHUMS DWARF, BUT DAISY DAWG is still the 
Duelmaster because she has the most recognition points!  Advice to fighters with a 1 
will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  ARADI thinks UNNAMEABLES and 
their 113-88-2 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  The bums at 
MEDAL OF HONOR B11 couldn't face the challenges from UNNAMEABLES!  No excuse for 
that!  What do people see in ARLENE?  Hers 11-14-4?  RED DOG GANG ain't talkin', but 
she's got 62 points.  WALL OF FUR didn't quite know what to make of a challenge he 
received from WONDERWORKS of ORLANDO OR BUST, who is 25 points below him.  
WONDERWORKS perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he bested WALL OF FUR and ended 
up with 51 recognition points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  SERGEANT 4 of MEDAL OF HONOR B11 didn't know when to quit.  
When you've got a 5-4-0, that's a good sign.  Now he's dead.  Many a warrior has met 
his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     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.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Wonderworks -- The "crowd" is anti-Duck, else they would not have been pleased. --
Duckett

Well, there it is again.  One-four for the pack.  At least this time I won my fight
and defeated that nasty Noble Assassin.  Any Good Dog knows what to think about
people that sneak around.  "Noble," my left toenail. -- Daisy Dawg
