                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in AMEN-TEI since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with SHINDEN-KAI?  
He actually beat AMEN-TEI's VETERAN MERCENARY, and walked away with 11 more points 
from the fight.  Laughs were big at COLOURED PEOPLE while they watched RED GREEN 
clobber HITCH HIKER.  He lost 3 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  I'm sure AMEN-TEI is excited about STILL HERE, the new Duelmaster from NO 
INDICATION.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  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.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, 
places to go...   
     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

out.

Raiden -- Unlike my teammate last time, I'm not a wuss. -- Hitch Hiker
P.S.  You've got to be tough to travel my way.

Judicator -- Does this mean my cause is just? -- Roadblock

ATTENTION ALL YOU ALLIANCE-TYPE PEOPLE:
For the purposes of tourney newsletter alliance listings (when I am able to do them),
you may only be listed in ONE alliance.  In other words, you have to choose!  If you
are a part of Englebert's Alliance and Englebert's Alliance is "part" of Ruthrauf's
Alliance, I will list you EITHER as part of Englebert's Alliance OR as part of
Ruthrauf's Alliance, NOT both.  The default would be the top-level alliance,
Ruthrauf's, in this example.  If you'd rather be listed separately, let me know and I
will do so, but that will be the only listing you get. -- The Saint, keeper of ever-
more-complicated lists

The Company of Brothers (TCB) welcomes two new members to our alliance...Liam the
Goth and Buddy Lee.  We have no doubt that they will prove to be assets to our
alliance and the general dueling community. -- Baphomet, co-founder, T.C.B.
