                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to ERINIKA once again!  Biff!  Pow!  ERINIKA watched with glee as 
BAATANAR'RITEZU got knocked off top spot by DUDS!  What's with DUNCE?  He actually 
beat BAATANAR'RITEZU's ANDRAMELOCKAMON, and walked away with 10 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at BAATANAR'RITEZU.  ANDRAMELOCKAMON lost 8 points to DUNCE.  
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe ANDRAMELOCKAMON will provide more easy wins...  
Try as she might, DEMOGORGON wasn't good enough at persuading BULL MARKET to step 
down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up 
fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  ERINIKA thinks 
BAATANAR'RITEZU and their 98-85-7 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give 
up...  In my day, no team with a 98-83-7 would scare me off!  What's the problem, THE 
BULLS?  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, DEMOGORGON! 
Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.   
     Warriors of ERINIKA unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Many a warrior 
has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  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

Andy Melon -- Or whatever you are called, you are soooo out of it.  You are just
learning what competition is.  North Fork, bah, humbug.  By the way, didn't they
rename that place for some wimpy winners?  (Not you, of course.) -- Bimbo

Andra Whatever -- By the way, good job beating that NPC.  What a surprise, huh?  I
know it was a tough match for someone with your hidden (really, really hidden)
talent. -- Bimbo

Erinaka -- Two turns in a row as "Top Team On The Move".  Bow down deeply to Royalty.
-- Amy A. Airhead, Duds Princess

Bull Market -- Way to go!  We are betting on you. -- All Us Duds

Quasit -- How kind of whatshisname to send you challenging me.  I appreciate the
gift. -- Lug

Moloch -- Yu be apple my eye.  Easy win me like.  Easy win me like. -- Endu Endu

How interesting!  Another 3-0 turn for The Royalty.  Uh let's see now, who did we
pass on the W/L record list?  Was it the same team that went 0-3 against us?  This is
so cool.  Know what we mean, Baats? -- Amy A. Airhead, Duds Princess

Bimbo Airhead -- Do you want a real DC?!  Here, then.  I sure hope Lug's Tourney XP
helps him. -- Asmo Dius, TCB

ATTENTION ALL YOU ALLIANCE-TYPE PEOPLE:
For the purposes of tourney newsletter alliance listings (when I am able to do them),
you may only be listed in ONE alliance.  In other words, you have to choose!  If you
are a part of Englebert's Alliance and Englebert's Alliance is "part" of Ruthrauf's
Alliance, I will list you EITHER as part of Englebert's Alliance OR as part of
Ruthrauf's Alliance, NOT both.  The default would be the top-level alliance,
Ruthrauf's, in this example.  If you'd rather be listed separately, let me know and I
will do so, but that will be the only listing you get. -- The Saint, keeper of ever-
more-complicated lists
