                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to LIN TIRIAN once again!  Bein' on top is great while it lasts, 
DOMINATION.  But how many friends do you have now?  What's with CALEAM CHOWDER?  He 
actually beat SAND DANCERS' KURTAL DUCK, and walked away with 23 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at SAND DANCERS.  HAROUN SHADDAR lost 10 points to MIKE.  Some 
new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe HAROUN SHADDAR will provide more easy wins...  TESLA 
SHARPE was reminded on the sands why RALTUMAN OMELETTE is Duelmaster.  Advice to 
fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  LIN TIRIAN thinks 
DOMINATION and their 67-32-7 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  
In my day, no team with a 67-32-7 would scare me off!  What's the problem, SHEWISH 
BUFFET?  What do people see in TESLA SHARPE?  Hers 15-8-1?  SAND DANCERS ain't 
talkin', but she's got 86 points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  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!  Remember--a good 
fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Raltuman Omelette -- You're a bad egg, if I ever saw one.  And given the recruiting
venue for this team, I've seen a lot.  Everyone on this team (except me) is Not Nice.
-- Tesla Sharpe, the token Good Girl

Olaf Thorfin -- You don't have to make such an issue of your team name, you know. --
Delna Berin
P.S.  And ignore Tesla.  Her, a Good Girl?  As if!  She's an ELF, for the cat's sake!

Jorgen Thorfin -- You may have won NOW, but anything with fins will end up in the
water sooner or later, and THEN, I'll HAVE you. -- Kurtal Duck

A Convicted Thief, eh?  Not a smart one, that's for sure.  I could teach him a few
tricks, but why should I?  No need to encourage the competition. -- Haroun Shaddar

Lapur Bisque -- I don't think I like you.  Too much shell, not enough meat. -- Urik
Darkheart
