                                      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 ULTOR TAK?  He actually beat 
FORT REAPER's CAPT. JACK, and walked away with 17 more points from the fight.  Laughs 
were big at MIDDLE WAY 18 while they watched ULTOR TAK clobber CAPT. JACK.  He lost 
14 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  ROS QUIN was reminded 
on the sands why DEATH SUCKS is Duelmaster.  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.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every 
day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  ERINIKA 
is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  I don't want to 
overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Death Sucks -- This is not news.  Small arenas suck more. -- Ros Quin

Squeeze -- Men!  You're all alike. -- Salinda Renn, not an orange to be squeezed

Extortion -- And stingy, too.  I teach you four skills, you get two ratings along
with 'em, and I don't get anything? -- Ultor Tak

Ultor -- You get away with your life, that had better be enough for now. -- Jorja

The Captured Orc embarrassed me terrible, because *I* am an orc and he isn't.  This
is so unfair!  I mean, the whole idea of capturing orcs, like they were... I don't
know, foxes or bears or something, it's just sick. -- Panama Oats

If the Ambitious Guard ever wants to make something of himself, he'd better get a
different style. -- Lilas Keeler
