                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in DAYLA KIV since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with IV?  He 
actually beat SAND DANCERS' GORBLE, and walked away with 19 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at SAND DANCERS while they watched MARDEL TEN VAREN clobber 
10.  She lost 10 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  CHANDAR 
LO was reminded on the sands why POLYNIKES 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...   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  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.  All work 
and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Somehow, this looks all too familiar.  Us, Gates of Fire, and a random unchartered
team.  Oh, well.  It's a job....

Dienekes -- You just burn me up. -- Mardel ten Varen
P.S.  You don't want stupid puns, you have to open a topic of conversation here.

The Street Sweeper.  Huh.  I hear we once had a teammate in this arena who bore that
exact same arena name, chosen to be aggravating.  This guy... not terribly
aggravating, though I wouldn't have minded a second skill. -- Riella tyl Tahl

One -- Tchah. -- Gorble

10 -- Tchah to the next order of magnitude. -- Hesti tyl Varen

IV -- Aha!  Take that, you wretch! -- Nimini tyl Zo

We salute Dayla Kiv's tourney participants, all three of them. -- Jorja and the Sand
Dancers
