                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to CHAVEZ RAVINE once again!  Bein' on top is great while it lasts, 
INSIGNIFICANCE.  But how many friends do you have now?  What's with TEASE?  She 
actually beat CHAVEZ RAVINE's LALVO OF THE PEN, and walked away with 21 more points 
from the fight.  Try as she might, TILAEN TYL SANH wasn't good enough at persuading 
MAX FACTOR to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  I suppose you want to hear 
some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.   
     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!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  Are 
you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Max Factor -- A winning factor, apparently.  I'll take that graduation notice with
great pleasure and who cares about the loss? -- Tilaen

Lord Taylor -- Where'd you get that GREAT suit? -- Donstan

Riot Act -- I refuse to read you. -- Pelak ten Zorn

Fatal -- Let's hope not! -- Ronsevan

All Readers -- Due to the pressures resulting from preparing for and dealing with the
Face to Face, no spotlights will be written until it's over. -- the Scribe

17 July 2004
I am currently trying to put together a favorites chart for AD warriors.  I
desperately need help with this.  What I need are style, favorite rhythm (ex.:
hi/low), favorite weapons, and tactics.  What would be great is if you could send me
a copy of the invite with the warrior's name, id#, and arena blacked out.  This way,
I can verify that this is an actual warrior.  Minis will work, too!

For those interested, I have both a challenge style vs. style and a match-up style
vs. style chart.  There's about 250 fights calculated in these charts, and I'll be
happy to send a copy to anyone who asks.  You can contact me (if you're a free world
player) at: Rick Stringer, Merit/East, SCI, P.O. Box 500, Georgetown, DE 19947-0500.
If you're in prison, just send a diplo to:  Baphomet, Mgr. Knights Templar (568), DM
#47--North Fork.  (I also have a lot of other charts and info for anyone who wants
it.)  Thanks!
