                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome VALAMANTIS.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Biff!  Pow!  
VALAMANTIS watched with glee as DEATH MOB got knocked off top spot by MIDDLE WAY 10!  
What's with IED?  He actually beat FLAGG'S DEVASTATORS' RABID BLITZER, and walked 
away with 19 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at EOD while they watched 
IED clobber RABID BLITZER.  He lost 14 points and got bruised from objects thrown 
from the stands.  Try as he might, CONVICTED ASSASSIN wasn't good enough at 
persuading DEATH MAGE to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  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 THE BEARS.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at FLAGG'S 
DEVASTATORS ain't reelin'!  THE BEARS' mad!  How well I know the feeling of being the 
most challenged warrior, WOLF RIDER!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to 
haunt you.   
     Warriors of VALAMANTIS unite.  You have only your games to lose!  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!  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Mastiff -- Ha, you think YOU are stiff?  That's nothing.  Try standing around for two
hours, in a cold house, bracing a ladder.  Then tell me about stiff, eh. -- Gormoduc
Irn

Crouching Bear -- Shouldn't there be a tiger in your tank? -- Isombard Korl

Chatti -- It drives me nuts when a woman goes on and on and won't shut up even though
she doesn't have anything to say.  Urg. -- Invur Kreb

The Baron -- (hopeful look)  Any chance of pizza? -- Chea Edel, suddenly hungry

Salty Dog -- Odd, I'd expected you to be a sea dog.  Not that the Trier, which is, of
course, the only handy sea to Valamantis, is salty, but just as a general thing. --
