                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to VALAMANTIS once again!  What's with KOLBERT MOON?  He actually 
beat HORSE LAKERS' SMELLY SHELLY, and walked away with 20 more points from the fight. 
Major screwup at HORSE LAKERS.  SMELLY SHELLY lost 19 points to KOLBERT MOON.  Some 
new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe SMELLY SHELLY will provide more easy wins...  Try as 
he might, MAX WEBER wasn't good enough at persuading MOOSEHEAD to step down from the 
Duelmaster's throne...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  I hate going to the effort 
of writing about the kind of fights that SHLITZ gets in.  He fights people like 
GILBERN JUSS, 11 points below.  I thought SHLITZ showed great skill and promise when 
he won victory over GILBERN JUSS.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, 
fight dirty.   
     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

We salute the tourney participants, whichever tourney it was they participated in. --
Jorja and the Middle Way

Hobgoblin -- You aren't really there.  Or at least, you don't really have glowing red
eyes.  It's just whatever I drank last night. -- Kolbert Moon

B.F. Skinner -- I'd like to skin you. -- Gilfmet Ivers
P.S.  But the arenamistress won't let me.  She says we need you and your teammates.
Seems iffy to me.

Smelly Shelly -- Phew! -- Gilbern Juss

Maniacal Marty -- Eat that, eh? -- Imrom Llews

Larry da Loser -- Your name strikes again.  Last personal for the last arena of the
day's line-up, you just don't get scintillating wit.  Arenas with low numbers
(Mordant, for instance) get the wit, you just get the tired old blah.  Sorry about
that. -- Neevan Povar

13 July 11
                                   Announcing!

          The No-Tourney ADM arena will be opening for business on the
          first of August of this year!
     It will be ADM Arena #107, making use of that idle installation down at Lirin
Kiv.  If the managers involved in this arena wish to rename it, suggestions will be
entertained through the months of August and September.

From:       The Office of Accurate Census Reporting, Gladiatorial Commission
To:         All Managers

In the interest of preserving our natural resources and preventing managerial writer's 
cramp, census forms will be provided for warriors by request only, effective 
immediately.  Managers may register their warriors' races and/or favorite sayings by 
simply writing them on a separate piece of paper and submitting them to the Commission.  
For any questions, please contact the Gladiatorial Commission.
