at Fascist Federation closed FDA's lead by 78 points, down to 302!
     There were no big point fights this cycle.  Three were worth 16 pts and that
pales compared to the Spy Report points!  Peace Makers had 6 mentions this time!

     Ok, folks...there they are!  2 more TW2 reports coming, then the winner will be
declared!  Yes, I'm fighting this turn, no it's not as The Company.  I never declared
'ritezu VII, so they'll be scored as Indeps.
     C'mon Fizban you can *DO* it...catch that O.P.A. (over-protective-agency).  M.D.
and the rest...worry about catching The Compruns!

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to ERINIKA once again!  Who can explain it?  Not you, not me, not 
WORLDWIDE GORE's opponents, after watching them shoot up the ranks from 21st to 6th.  
You know what they say about the herd of lions who studied a judge...  STORM TROOP 
moved up 13 places, to 12th.  Who can explain it?  Not you, not me, not KIWI 
CONNECTION's opponents, after watching them shoot up the ranks from 33rd to 20th.  
You know what they say about the herd of lions who studied a judge...  BLACK & BLUE 
moved up 13 places, to 22nd.  Looking for a good fight, confident, skilled, tough 
opponents.  Well don't look at THE INANIMATES, cause they dropped by 16.  Who can 
explain it?  Not you, not me, not KINGS OF PEACE's opponents, after watching them 
shoot up the ranks from 52nd to 40th.  You know what they say about the herd of lions 
who studied a judge...  DARQUE FORCES VII moved up 11 places, to 43rd.  PERFECTION 
QUEST bit the big one as they could not win.  They dropped from 31st down to 44th!  
Are you guy giving lessons or what?  Ever take one of those association tests?  You 
know, he says black, you say white.  Water-Lake, Sky-Blue. Try this:  Flop.  FLAMING 
FIST!  GARDEN GUMBIES bit the big one as they could not win.  They dropped from 36th 
down to 50th!  Are you guy giving lessons or what?  Looking for a good fight, 
confident, skilled, tough opponents.  Well don't look at FEMME FATALE, cause they 
dropped by 23.  Some people say I ramble too much, I don't say anything relevant.  I 
repeat myself.  I ramble.  Well DRAKE'S LODGE moved up 3, to 3rd.  What's with PRINCE 
RAESENE?  He actually beat MYSTERIOUS' CONUNDRUM, and walked away with 26 more points 
from the fight.  Major screwup at MYSTERIOUS.  CONUNDRUM lost 28 points to PRINCE 
RAESENE.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe CONUNDRUM will provide more easy 
wins...  DARQUE FORCES VIII's hatred of PEACE MAKERS surfaced again as PIXIE BLIGHT 
challenged ERINIKA's top dog.  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for DARQUE FORCES 
VIII's outstanding member, Duelmaster PIXIE BLIGHT.  Advice to fighters with a 1 
will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  The 
most avoided team was DRAKE'S LODGE.  The bums at ALPHABET SOUP couldn't face the 
challenges from DRAKE'S LODGE!  No excuse for that!  How well I know the feeling of 
being the most challenged warrior, P.D.Q.!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come 
back to haunt you.  Keep challenging up 29 points, CONSPIRACY THEORY, and I won't 
have to write about you much longer.  ASPHYXIATE always accepts those kind of 
challenges...  I don't get it.  CONSPIRACY THEORY goes and challenges ASPHYXIATE, way 
above him, but gets 7 points after he loses!  Is this a new strategy?  I hate going 
to the effort of writing about the kind of fights that BOP gets in.  He fights people 
like RED RUEPHIN, 15 points below.  I thought BOP showed great skill and promise when 
he lost to RED RUEPHIN.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  We all knew it had to happen sooner or later.  A 
warrior can't stick around with a 12-21-4, and F.U.B.A.R. easily took care of 
TOMBSTONE.  SUSIE was plum wore out after THE BHAUM pounded 'im silly in a Bloodfeud. 
FEMME FATALE'll have to get a little better before going after THE BHAUM again!  How 
long have I been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  The 
end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want to 
overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Asmo -- "Kat" is "Femme Fatale" champion. -- Angel

Vrock -- What happened?  You were my second challenge.  It is so enlightening being a
Delarquan. -- Justice with (19 FE)
P.S.  Feel free to bloodfeud.

Asmo -- It's as you've pointed out several times in your spotlights tracking the Turf
War, Manic Depressant, Goat, No Honor (as opposed to no honors, (or honour/honours
when written in the proper Queen's English). -- Crip

     If you're using the Queen's English, does that mean we here in the south have to
     use the President's English?  Horrid thought. -- Ed.

Mannaz Thorsson -- Occasionally, we will challenge to win, but mostly it's for
scouting for info for future wins. -- Mongol Horde

The Bhaum -- I'm so made I feel like I'm going to Ecksplode. -- Cross Czech

Heilstorm -- Much better on your part, certainly wasn't expecting the counter attack.
Will have to try again later. -- I.R.S.

Kantryp -- Gothca.  Not sure how.  For I am.... -- F.U.B.A.R.

Gohon -- Remember to take no prisoners. -- M.I.A.

Scrag's Lizard -- Welcome back, but why the change in ID#, both for you and your
team? -- I.O.U.

Kasenko -- If I'm going to lose, best to lose to a fellow EPA. -- Red Hot Chile Papa

King Rat -- Yeah, what papa said, I knew I could smell something wrong. -- Yankee
Doodle

Blue Blood -- ^*#@%$ knockdowns. -- Knitted Afghan

Frisian -- !#(&# size 3's. -- Bull Frog

Black Book -- #(!#(! scum! -- Bull Market

Sneezy Smurf -- ^!@$)) Smurfs! -- P.D.Q.

Asmo -- Not that it matters much at this point, but Odin's Chosen's total should have
been +62 on turn 136 and the War Wizards should only have been -2.  Also, will the
next mail-in count towards the final tally or not? -- Heathen

Crip -- I think it's funny you would accuse me of making nothing but downchallenges,
when I've only gotten 14 challenges through in the last eleven turns--6 of which went
up and 8 down.  Sure, the last few turns I've been headhunting, but there's a war on
or hadn't you noticed?  Maybe you could offer some tips on getting challenges
through--you seem to do pretty well, even when I avoid you!  I find it ironic that
Mannaz DOUBLE challenged Justice and the latter got matched up instead, yet your
challenge made it through to Mannaz, though he'd avoided you! - Heathen

Master Darque -- Where to next?  47, 45 or Aruak?  Would like to get all the Cartel
in one arena so that I can get to know who is Cartel and be able to complete with
them against another alliance. -- Goat

Drake -- Fantastic Annual Review!  I'm even considering forgiving your blatantly
biased attitude towards UU Doespellcheckingdisaterwanakno and disparaging comments
regarding Punchy D....  I am only considering it, mind! -- Spawn

Yankee Doodle -- Go doodle your yank elsewhere!! -- King Rat

Whahl of Phorse -- Too hotly engaged to draw my back-up weapon??  For two minutes??
Go figure!!  Nice finish for you though, well done! -- Hannibal

The Key -- Exactly when do you give up?? -- Pinch Hitter

Sauced Seer -- Hmm...not much fun. -- Dixie C

General Smurf -- And I thought Smurfs were meant to be fun! -- Sacrifice

Gungnir -- Gotcha!  (It's taken a while to get that challenge through!) -- Asphyxiate

Pixie Blight -- Gutsy challenge, great win!  Mind if I try to regain some honor with
a repeat challenge back?! -- Gai-Jin

25 August 2003
To any that care -- The CDC is back; our current roster is:
     Malaquar -- Minion of Guardian
     Pip the Troll -- Burly Enforcer Type
     mouse -- Official Sneaky Bastard
     Papa Bear -- Elder Statesmen
                     The Sealer says, "Hi, I'm the dealer."
                     Papa Bear says, "It's not my f****n fault."
Guardian -- Paper Figurehead

An Announcement Concerning the Brotherhood of the Blade Alliance:
     I have chosen to withdraw my membership from the Brotherhood of the Blade
alliance.  The years I have spent in the alliance have been the best of my DM career.
I leave the alliance with many great friends and will always remain close to my
former brethren.
     The Brotherhood of the Blade will not skip a beat without my membership.  It
remains in very capable hands and its roster is among the strongest in the game.
With the return on some of its founding members to DM, I know the BOB will continue
to grow in strength and prestige in the years to come. -- The Sandman
