                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to ERINIKA once again!  What's with RED WING?  It actually beat 
ERINIKA's EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, and walked away with 16 more points from the fight.  Try 
as he might, KHALHUMS DWARF wasn't good enough at persuading APPLE DANISH 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 DARK RUNES 
and their 19-10-1 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  In my day, 
no team with a 19-10-1 would scare me off!  What's the problem, FAMILY JEWELS?  How 
well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, DIAMOND EAR RING!  
Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  DIAMOND EAR RING didn't 
quite know what to make of a challenge she received from MARLIN of PLAY BALL, who is 
20 points below her.  MARLIN perhaps got its just desserts, seeing as it was overcame 
by DIAMOND EAR RING and ended up with 5 recognition points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover 
stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
ERINIKA is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  
Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- 
Olaf Modeen

11 April 2006
To all those lookin' for some easy pickins:  I, Elfwine, manager of The Shallowship,
the most feared team in all of Jhelum, invite all who seek wide open spaces for pubs
and other such establishments of limited debauchery, to visit this deserted city and
help me clear up some of the dust.  I'm just about ready to have my guys face off
against each other to get some new action.  Guess I'd better join a tournament or
something...hmmmm, there's a thought.
