                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in DAL SHANG since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Bein' on top is great 
while it lasts, SAND DANCERS.  But how many friends do you have now?  Up 'n down.  Up 
'n down.  Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, 
TOLBIN'S GEMS' 1st moved them up to 5-0-0 place.  It seems so recently people were 
saying BASH BROS EVANGELIST was washed up, finished.  But 4-1-0 moved them up 1.  I 
guess they're washed no more...  What's with MATTHEW HALE?  He actually beat MEDAL OF 
HONOR C11's SERGEANT 8, and walked away with 17 more points from the fight.  Laughs 
were big at BASH BROS EVANGELIST while they watched MATTHEW HALE clobber SERGEANT 8.  
He lost 14 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  DRIVING A 
ROLLS was reminded on the sands why KALDAN TEN KARAN is Duelmaster.  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.  DAL 
SHANG thinks TOLBIN'S GEMS and their 41-18-2 is too much!  If at first you don't 
succeed, give up...  The bums at BASH BROS EVANGELIST couldn't face the challenges 
from TOLBIN'S GEMS!  No excuse for that!  What do people see in SERGEANT 8?  His 
6-4-0?  MEDAL OF HONOR C11 ain't talkin', but he's got 28 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...   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  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

Kaldan -- With all the effort we've place in you, I'd have expected you to convert
just to get us off your back.  Regardless, good luck! -- Driving a Rolls

Sfc 3 -- Believe it!  I find it satisfying.  Very satisfying. -- Gorban ten Skora

Driving a Rolls -- That's always a problem with arena communities.  They draw
villains like rotten meat draws flies.  Gamblers and thugs, thieves and cutthroats,
vampires and black magicians.  Some of them even become gladiators themselves,
although most end up as managers. -- Kaldan ten Karan

Matthew Hale -- Ugh.  You're one of those "hale fellow, well met" types, aren't you?
A glad-hander.  Horrible. -- An Yee
P.S.  The last time someone tried to slap me on the back, in "a comradely fashion,"
he had a dagger in his hand.  I was not amused.

Wayne Bent -- Bend farther. -- Norben the Lesser

Shoko Asahara -- You gave ME a "shoko" when you came out, but I recovered well, did I
not? -- Karanza the Wild
