     I shall abdicate.

     This arena should sow Wild Oats at the top.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of LIN TIRIAN!  Once again I've been called out of 
retirement for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Bein' on top is great 
while it lasts, MAGIC ARTISTS.  But how many friends do you have now?  What's with 
CON MAN?  It actually beat LIN TIRIAN's EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, and walked away with 18 
more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at WILD OATS while they watched 
QUICKLIME clobber CONJURER.  She lost 7 points and got bruised from objects thrown 
from the stands.  What a role model for LIN TIRIAN's young 'uns!  NECROMANCER becomes 
Duelmaster, but don't bother to fight no more!  I'm sure LIN TIRIAN is excited about 
QUICKLIME, the new Duelmaster from WILD OATS.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as 
many as I have...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your 
fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  The 
most avoided team was MAGIC ARTISTS.  The bums at WILD OATS couldn't face the 
challenges from MAGIC ARTISTS!  No excuse for that!  What do people see in SHANA THE 
KNIFE?  Hers 20-27-0?  SAND DANCERS ain't talkin', but she's got 87 points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, 
places to go...   
     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

Tyler Durden -- It is in the eyes.  You have met your match. -- Necromancer

Tail Spin -- Perhaps I am in one. -- Medicine Man

It was but merely a Stray Cat.  Perhaps I should have saved it for lunch? -- Conjurer

Shana -- You are MINE.  The knife is harmless, you know. -- Necromancer

Quicklime -- Then we both share something in common--having risen from the dead. --
Necromancer

The Brotherhood AND Capitol Hill is ahead of us in career w/l?  What is this country
coming to?  Once magic stood for something. -- Houdini, Magic Artists

Conjurer -- The price for all that armor is your mystique. -- Stray Cat

Mirial -- If I pander to the common, it is by design. -- Meat Hook

Medicine Man -- I wish I was desperate all the time. -- Tail Spin

Sinister -- Now that's a clean favorite learn. -- Mr. Clean

Shana -- Sorry, I don't have any blood to spare.  Folks my size run about a quart
low. -- Quicklime

Houdini -- You'd better throw some sawdust in the gearbox you call a head 'cause it's
about to start grinding:  I estimate Quicklime has fifteen decise skills. -- Cadmus

Abjurer -- From a pH point of view, I'm basically mean.  Caustic even. -- Quicklime

Mirial Steel -- That's a wee bit edgier.  If I were you, I'd stick with romantic
comedy. -- Meat Hook

Deelar -- (recoiling)  You're the Sand Dancer!  Not that you guys are any worse than
the rest of the bums around here.  Tracking the stuff into the house, the guildhall,
everywhere!  Not to mention what it does for my armor chafe. -- Mr. Clean
P.S.  Want to have some fun?  I bet you have a disco ball at your guildhall.  Let's
hang it over Stray Cat's sandbox!

Jorja -- Thanks.  Remind me to never play low-ball poker with you. -- Cadmus

Meat Hook -- You're ridiculous.  What possible use would an oat have for a meat hook?
Rather petrophagic, oats. -- Mirial Adamant

Quicklime -- Augh, elves!  You can't trust 'em, even when they're half human.  Any
elf blood at all, you've got an elf, although it DOES help to let out as much of that
point-eared blood as possible.  I do my best. -- Shana the Knife

Fratsfa Slave?  Bah. -- Deelar Marion

And for the Persitant Beggar, double bah. -- Chelbagheera

Mr. Clean Green -- Have you considered bathing in whiskey?  That kills a lot of green
stuff! -- Deelar Marion

Cadmus -- If you've got email, I can send you the files that way.  Otherwise, hmm.
Maybe I can send 'em to Sandy, get her to print them out, and diplo them to you.
I'll see what I can do. -- Jorja
