                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome CHAVEZ RAVINE.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the 
fights have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with 
GARMON CHANG?  He actually beat CHAVEZ RAVINE's CRINGING CUTPURSE, and walked away 
with 13 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at CHAVEZ RAVINE while they 
watched DANGEROUS BON LOKAR clobber KORBA KLEE.  He lost 11 points and got bruised 
from objects thrown from the stands.  Har har har!  Did RETRIBUTION wimp out, or just 
get lazy?  Anyway, he's not Duelmaster anymore.  I can barely restrain my enthusiam 
for LORDS OF VIRTUE's outstanding member, Duelmaster LOVE.  Advice to fighters with a 
1 will--give up fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...   
     Warriors of CHAVEZ RAVINE unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Is it my 
imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so 
gloriously!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  The 
end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Remember--a good 
fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Sand Dancers -- I would like to apologize for the for the death of Jaego Klee.  It
was not an intentional kill.  I was merely attempting to learn some skills.  I hope
the soul of Jaego Klee rests well.  Again, my apologies. -- Love, Lord of Virtue

Love -- They tell me that "men have died and worms have eaten them, but not for
love."  Couldn't prove it by me. -- Ghost of Jaego Klee

Green Disease -- Why do I have...what is it, algae?  Why is it all over me?  I don't
LIKE it. -- Ronsevan

Yeah, well, I'm just glad they didn't let the Street Sweeper bring his BROOM into the
arena.  He's lethal with that, but fairly useless with a sword. -- Korba Klee

Malakai -- You know, lots of my relatives are going to be upset about this. -- Ghost
of Kinlo ten Zorn

That's it?  One-shot a standby, and I'm "introduced to the arena"?  Seems a little
thin. -- Kim Chi

Due to requests, the Turf War IV will be postponed until turn 225 (approx May/June
2005).  Sorry about the inconvenience. -- Baphomet, host of TW 4

On Jhans turn number 476 (due on Feb. 16, 2005) the Second Annual kLk St. Valentine's
Massacre Kill Contest will begin.  The rules are simple; the team with the most kills

DOOMcorps crush all challengers?  Will the kLk prevail?  Or will you be the
independent manager to show that alliances aren't all that?  Come on to Jhans and
let's find out!
     Prizes are:  1st.  Renaming of a Dark Arena monster and five roll-up
                        certificates or $25.00 deposited in your account.
