                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome JURINE.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Bein' on top is great while 
it lasts, DOCTORS.  But how many friends do you have now?  What's with WALLIS YENT?  
He actually beat DOCTORS' PETER DAVISON, and walked away with 20 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at DOCTORS.  PETER DAVISON lost 15 points to WALLIS YENT.  Some 
new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe PETER DAVISON will provide more easy wins...  VONNER 
WESS was reminded on the sands why HUGH GRANT 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...   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, places to 
go...   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  The 
end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want to 
overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Hugh Grant -- What a surprise to meet you on the sands.  Isn't there anyone else
fighting at the higher levels?  (pause to check)  No.  Oh, well. -- Vonner Wess

Peter Davison -- Huh, the arenamaster was disgusted?  How does he think *I* felt? --
Barlo Chells

David Tennant -- Our overall strategy here is to let you guys have the top ranks, so
any reactivated hotshot will go for you rather than for us. -- Wallis Yent
P.S.  That's our story, anyway.

The Fratsfa Slave?  Really, is it too much to ask that this guy be Fratsfan?  Or else
be renamed for whatever he is, such as a... hmm, maybe he's an Imprisoned Debtor? --
Dellea Eramin

Donna -- There seems to be something wrong with your face, but I have no idea what.
-- Zakalus Ardon
P.S.  You probably need to see a doctor.

Hugh Grant -- Well, yes.  They seem to die rather easily.  Geraniums are the hardest
to kill, perhaps they're the Total Parries of house plants? -- Vonner Wess

David Tennant -- The sonics came unscrewed?  They were inscrutable?  I'm not getting
this. -- Wallis Yent
