                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome DAYLA KIV.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Bein' on top is great 
while it lasts, GURTARG'S AXES.  But how many friends do you have now?  What's with 
GLAERIKIM?  He actually beat SAND DANCERS' MITRILLAO, and walked away with 20 more 
points from the fight.  Major screwup at FACING WORLDS.  MALAKAI lost 11 points to 
KORBA KLEE.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe MALAKAI will provide more easy 
wins...  DAYLA KIV has a Duelmaster who doesn't sit back and get lazy.  He Dark Arena 
Challenged DARK ARENA's TALL SHARO-SKA (0-0-0), which should prove (ahem!) 
interesting.  TALL SHARO-SKA was reminded on the sands why AULDRYMBREI is Duelmaster. 
I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  
Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, SAND DANCERS! 
The bums at GURTARG'S AXES couldn't face the challenges from SAND DANCERS!  No excuse 
for that!   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Hmm...  More surprises must remain in store for me, if 
AULDRYMBREI can return from the Dark Arena.  GLAERIKIM proved too determined for 
MITRILLAO.  MITRILLAO was lucky to go in the ring, with 8-5-2 to his credit.  He will 
be remembered.  MITRILLAO found himself really over-matched when he faced GLAERIKIM.  
MITRILLAO found himself grossly dead at the end of the match.  Here's some advice:  
study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     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!  I don't want to 
overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Going five-oh against nothing but standbys hardly seems a good thing.  There are too
many standbys active here, which means not enough regular warriors.  Sir Chester,
can't you bring in some friends? -- Li Dan
P.S.  In fact, out of ten fights here last time, ALL TEN involved a standby.  Next
thing you know, we'll see the standbys out here fighting each other!

Glaerikim -- I was brought up in a country district that never saw a dwarf from one
year to the next, and so we naturally considered them a bit odd, maybe even a little
suspicious.  But you're a regular guy.  I think we could be friends.  I know a place
down in Rivertown where the drinks are good.  Care to go with me? -- Mitrillao

Sir Chester -- My first graduate came from this arena, also.  Gods, that was a long
time ago!  Gladiatorially, she's trapped in Primus now, but inactive.  In actual
fact, she's out and about doing something responsible and energetic.  (shakes head)
These youngsters! -- Li Dan

Lord Protector Auldrymbrei -- Your teammate will hardly have had time to decided
about HIS lands, and now we're offering them to you, eh?  Maybe you would like to
wait a month or so to see how his deal works out?  A note indicating whether you want
your lands immediately or a little later, in the next newsletter, will be sufficient
indication.
     And accept our congratulations for you, your teammate, and your manager.  It is
always a momentous occasion when a warrior graduates, but the FIRST graduates are
even more so. -- Harizon, Arena Steward

5 November 2005
It is with a proud heart that I announce the newest member of the Desolate Empire
alliance.  Dok Sik will be known from here forth as Dark Knight Dok Sik, of the
Desolate Empire.  May he be blessed with victory and courage.  May his enemies' blood
flow freely! -- The Dark Knights Wasby and Toker
