                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome AMEN-TEI.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with DIS-POSAL? 
He actually beat AMEN-TEI's TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE, and walked away with 20 more points 
from the fight.  Major screwup at WAYFARERS.  LENNALGIRE lost 6 points to BERRA.  
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe LENNALGIRE will provide more easy wins...  I'm 
sure AMEN-TEI is excited about DIS-GRUNTLE, the new Duelmaster from DIS-TEAM.  
(remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  Advice to fighters with a 1 
will--give up fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, WILD OATS!  
The bums at UN couldn't face the challenges from WILD OATS!  No excuse for that!   
     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.   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
Are you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm 
writing it before you read it.  Oh, well.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good 
skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Cle -- Well, that's a relief!  I'll gladly say "uncle" to you this time.  Better than
trying to think of something to say to the, ah, "crowd." -- Slippery
P.S.  And four skills!  Hot stuff!

M. Chardinee.  Oh, dear.  Well, a win is worth having, and he did teach me a (one)
skill.  That's not something to sneeze at.  I could be dead, after all! -- Tom-Tom
Tora

I'm really not getting it with the Ambitious Guard.  You'd think after all this time,
he'd quit. -- Valnakaur

Okay, I admit that the Visiting Orc did not immediately try to eat everything in
sight.  Of course, he's not an orc, so that may explain it.  But he was darned
personal in the hall after the fight, and I don't like it.  Can't something be done
about this?  Maybe if we got a real orc...I wouldn't mind feeding him as an
alternative to having this Fratsfan pawing at me. -- Lennalgire

Apiti -- Indeed, it is. -- M.T. Lane

Gladstone -- Now, you seem like a pleasant fellow.  That business in the arena, I
don't hold that against you, it's just a case of both of us doing our jobs.  But
after the fights, ah!  How about a beer? -- Tick Malone, Friendly Constable

Lennalgire -- Dear lady, do not be so cool!  I would honor you with my attention. --
Orlanj of Zensu, "Visiting Orc"

Valnakaur -- Your behavior anent the current Ambitious Guard, young Trellian was,
perhaps, justified as teaching him not to neglect the little observances (a silver
eagle here and there, for instance) that keep the handicapper sweet and prevent such
serious mis-matches.  However, the orderlies request that you do not, on some future
occasion, render him incapable of walking out under his own power.  They say he's too
heavy.  I did suggest they remove his armor before carrying him, but still, they do
have a point. -- Maurice Karn, Captain of the Ambitious Guards

Tom-Tom Tora -- Young woman, I will not say "young lady" because your status is
debatable, your behavior toward your elders leaves much to be desired.  You need to
work on those little demonstrations of respect which we expect and deserve. -- M.
Golodor Chardinee
