                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome DAL SHANG.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with XYLOID?  
He actually beat SAND DANCERS' LORAND TEN SORN, and walked away with 16 more points 
from the fight.  Laughs were big at SCRABBLE while they watched XYLOID clobber LORAND 
TEN SORN.  He lost 4 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  I 
can barely restrain my enthusiam for SCRABBLE's outstanding member, Duelmaster 
XYLOID.  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow 
fighters?  Tough!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  How 
well I know the feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of 
practive, SCRABBLE!  In my day, no team with a 23-6-1 would scare me off!  What's the 
problem, BASH BROS EVANGELIST?  What do people see in KALDAN TEN KARAN?  His 19-11-0? 
SAND DANCERS ain't talkin', but he's got 95 points.  DRIVING A ROLLS of BASH BROS 
EVANGELIST knows how to pick 'em.  He challenged KALDAN TEN KARAN of SAND DANCERS who 
is up by 19.  Now was this a wise move?  DRIVING A ROLLS perhaps got his just 
desserts, seeing as he was bested by KALDAN TEN KARAN and ended up with 70 
recognition points.   
     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...   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
All work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Norvan -- That was a lot closer. -- Driving a Rolls

Jorja -- Are you conspiring to not get PP's?  Nice trick getting both your top
warriors to the same recognition level so neither gets the throne.  I am not amused.
Get your warriors outta here so my Rolls driving Evangelist can get those last wins
against NPCs or something. -- Assur

It's intensely frustrating when we tie our selves for top recognition and thus
neither one gets the title. -- Lorand and Norvan

Driving a Rolls -- The script must have been written in invisible ink. -- Norvan ten
Kogan
P.S.  I don't do "collapse from exhaustion."  Not in two minutes, anyway.

Causey -- Ouch? -- Gorban ten Skora

And for the rest, three wins over standbys.  Making a four-one turn, which isn't a
bad thing, even if they WERE standbys. -- the rest of the Sand Dancers
