                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to KYR'TERR once again!  Phhbltt!  Too much drinking and too little 
dodging gave SUPERIOR FORCES ZC a 0-1-0!  I got a good laugh out of it!  What's with 
PERRY SATURN?  He actually beat THE ZOO's PANAMA OATS, and walked away with 18 more 
points from the fight.  Laughs were big at OUT OF THIS WORLD while they watched PERRY 
SATURN clobber PANAMA OATS.  She lost 10 points and got bruised from objects thrown 
from the stands.  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for WESTERN FRONTIER's 
outstanding member, Duelmaster ALBUQUERQUE.  I suppose you want to hear some rumors 
and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.   
     Warriors of KYR'TERR unite.  You have only your games to lose!  We all knew it 
had to happen sooner or later.  A warrior can't stick around with a 5-4-0, and 
HALIFAX easily took care of DONNIE ELFAND.  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.  
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.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now. 
Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

It's been eight long years, Kyr'Terr!  Tryptophan is the first graduate of mine in
years that I'm excited about!  Hopefully one day you will all see why.  Back soon. --
Manager

Kung-Fu Master.  Just so.  But I don't fight kung-fu style, and he couldn't master
me.  Ha. -- Faizun Gote

They should have let me bury the Fratsfa Slave in the sand.  It's all he was good
for. -- Lotta Mous

Lotta's too impatient.  He still had some good target-dummy left in him. -- Panama
Oats

The Mordant Deserter's pathetic, isn't he? -- Donnie Elfand

Our congratulations to Tryptophan. -- Jorja and The Zoo

A salute to all who participated in the tourney. -- Jorja and The Zoo

You once thought of me,
As a white knight on a steed.
Now you know how happy I can be...

It's true.  I'm gone.  I've punched my ticket to Immortality and I'm off to the Isle.
I know a lot of you are wondering what it is about me that has made me so successful.
I wish I knew for sure.  I think it has more to do with intangibles (knack) than it
does with design, bonuses and favorites.  I'll let you decide.

Daydream Believer (PR) 17-14-4-17-7-8-17  Poor Endurance--Good Damage
I -- 8 (+1)  R -- 13  A -- 14 (+4)  P -- 14 (+4)  Df - 8  Dc - 6 (+3)

I know what you're thinking, "WTF, that guy looks like a 98 lb weakling!"  Sigh...I
prefer to think my physical characteristics are ideally suited for a finesse style.
As for my bases, I know they aren't much to look at.  After all, I am a PR.  I'm
fortunate to be blessed where I need it the most--attack and parry.

Okay, so I've got nice bases with bonuses in the right spots.  What about favorites?
Did I know them in advance or did I change them?  The answer is no, I had no idea
what they were for sure until I recieved my graduation announcement.  I would be
happy to tell you what my favorites are but I don't think my clone, Jumpinjack Flash,
would be very happy with me if I did.  Let's just say that from the moment I stepped
on the sands as a Rookie I used the same strategy in EVERY fight.  The only thing I
ever changed was armor (early on vs. TP's) and attack/defend locations.  That should
give those of you who have faced me more than once something to think about.

You may be interested to know that I am all natural.  I haven't had a prize of any
type used on me.  I'm a freak of nature.  It just goes to show you never know when a
guy like me will walk into your guildhouse looking for work as a gladiator.  It's up
to you to spot the potential and nuture it along.

I'm going to list my tourney results and records versus each style.  It isn't meant
to be a brag--I just thought you might find it interesting and a lot easier than
looking it up yourself.  Enjoy!

As you can see, the only style I had trouble with is the ABs.  I think that has more
to do with which ABs I fought rather than the style as a whole.  I was 3-1 vs ABs
early on (Rookies-Champs) and 4-10 in Challengers.  I was 1-5 vs Marv, 0-1 vs Marv Jr
and 0-3 vs Soulsnare.  I am going to make an educated guess and assume they all had
skills or prizes added to them to make them competetive at the Challenger level where
so few ABs are.  I could be wrong, though I doubt it.

See you on the Isle,
    Daydream Believer
