                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to ERINIKA once again!  Some people say I ramble too much, I don't 
say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I ramble.  Well KNIGHT OF THE ABYSS moved 
up 1, to 4th.  What's with LILAS KEELER?  She actually beat ERINIKA's VETERAN 
MERCENARY, and walked away with 21 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at 
BLACKMAIL while they watched RIMN clobber ULTOR TAK.  He lost 6 points and got 
bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Try as he might, VETERAN MERCENARY 
wasn't good enough at persuading EXTORTION to step down from the Duelmaster's 
throne...  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some 
team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  I 
hate going to the effort of writing about the kind of fights that YELLOW gets in.  He 
fights people like R U DMB, 12 points below.  I thought YELLOW showed great skill and 
promise when he subdued R U DMB.  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.  I like to see warriors put young whippersnappers in 
their place.  I guess you could say COLORS'BLACK did just that.  Right H8 2 TXT?  
Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     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

Extortion -- What the heck?  I mean, I wasn't going to pay, publish and be damned and
all that, okay, not *publish* in your case, but still.  So what's the point in
killing me?  It won't get you your money--  Ah, an example to your other victims?
Fie on 'em. -- Ghost of Ros Quin

Adultery -- Amazing the games adults play, isn't it? -- Salinda Rees

It might feel like something, after all, orcs are tough, if this WAS an orc.  As it
stands, this thing is now a grease spot. -- Ultor Tak

Note to self, if I ever become a Guard, avoid Ambition.  It's the ruination of
