                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to SHADOWSPIRE once again!  Biff!  Pow!  SHADOWSPIRE watched with 
glee as JUNGLELAND got knocked off top spot by LA PENTARCHIE!  Phhbltt!  Too much 
drinking and too little dodging gave CAPITAL CARTEL a 1-4-0!  I got a good laugh out 
of it!  Ya gotta be quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  
Block out the pain!  SUMMERBORN is now ranked 13th with a 4-1-1 turn.  DARQUE AGES 
showed SHADOWSPIRE what they were made of as they fought with a vengeance to walk off 
with 4-1-0.  What's with '08 CHALLENGER?  He actually beat LA PENTARCHIE's CLASSIC 
NAPALM, and walked away with 34 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at 
LITERATE LOONS.  A.E. HOUSMAN lost 17 points to HEINRIK.  Some new strategies, 
perhaps?  Maybe A.E. HOUSMAN will provide more easy wins...  Apparently SHADOWSPIRE 
isn't filled with as many gutless wonders as I thought.  The Dreaded Duelmaster got 
12 challenges this turn!  Another fighter (PIT FIEND 13-9-1) challenged another 
Duelmaster (OUTLAW PETE 28-12-0).  Life goes on.  Try as he might, PIT FIEND wasn't 
good enough at persuading OUTLAW PETE to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  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.  How 
well I know the feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of 
practive, OF WOLF AND MAN!  The bums at AMERICAN MUSCLE couldn't face the challenges 
from OF WOLF AND MAN!  No excuse for that!  Keep challenging up 30 points, ZEVRAN, 
and I won't have to write about you much longer.  SINISTER SNOOPY always accepts 
those kind of challenges...  Sometimes what you expect to do (like in the fights) 
doesn't expect to turn out like you thought.  ZEVRAN overcame SINISTER SNOOPY.  It 
don't make sense.  Fighting is a better craft than farming, NO DICE SON, but you have 
to pay your dues.  Being challenged by SCUMPUNCHER, 19 points above you, is dues.  
SCUMPUNCHER's gonna be practicin' hard this week, after NO DICE SON, lower ranked by 
far, mashed him!  CICERO didn't quite know what to make of a challenge he received 
from ANGEROO of FURRY FURY, who is 19 points below him.  ANGEROO perhaps got his just 
desserts, seeing as he subdued CICERO and ended up with 62 recognition points.  I 
hate going to the effort of writing about the kind of fights that MACEO gets in.  She 
fights people like NYDERAWYN, 15 points below.  I thought MACEO showed great skill 
and promise when she bested NYDERAWYN.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!  
     Warriors of SHADOWSPIRE unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Hmm...  More 
surprises must remain in store for me, if FIVE can return from the Dark Arena.  NO 
DICE SON of SUMMERBORN got 24 points for removing another young punk.  Tough luck, 
BATTLE GRUNTS!  CLASSIC NAPALM, with his forgettable 17-15-1,  was put to death by 
'08 CHALLENGER in a forgettable match.  LA PENTARCHIE didn't seem to mind very much.  
'08 CHALLENGER of AMERICAN MUSCLE has spared CLASSIC NAPALM from the boredom of a 
warrior's retirement...  But I doubt LA PENTARCHIE is grateful.  GROWLER was plum 
wore out after VIRGINIA WOOLF pounded 'im silly in a Bloodfeud.  BATTLE GRUNTS'll 
have to get a little better before going after VIRGINIA WOOLF again!  How long have I 
been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
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

     A couple of notes:
     First, as you will have seen, no spy report from me this time.  As Jorja
     mentions below somewhere, the hands have been preempted by Olaf for the tourney
     spy report.  I'll try to get one written next time, Crysalis or no.
     And second, there was something in the files that claimed to be a Yellow Press
     report with information as of turn 37.  My guess was that it showed up by
     accident, and I left it out.  I didn't throw it away and will re-insert it next
     time if this is desired. -- Larkin

All, uh, what the heck!  Don't really know what happened.  No Cartel last round?
Pretty sure they were sent in advance due to the sorta two weeks off; or did the
Alzheimers set in?  Wanted 605 w/l; but did slipping below demoralize Agent, or
better yet, get him fired?  Could Agent have simply quit and said he is tired of this
Shadowspire rat race?  Could twelve rounds of golf in eight days grounded the old
man; or better yet, left him out of bounds or in a hazard?  Or ????????????? -- The
Capital Cartel Board Of Directors

La Pentarchie -- Seventy-six points?  You suck, er, ah, rock! -- An envious Agent,
who may, or may not, be in charge of Capital Cartel, but knows more about this sport
than any young whippersnapper they can hire (but is extremely weak in brown-nosing
skills)

Jager -- That isn't what I meant by a shot of Jager.  No way. -- Roundup

No Dice Son -- Bad FE match for you.  I feel your pain on that one.  See you around
the bend. -- JFQ

Poli Sarchis -- A shame to do what I did to legs like that but, I am sure a lady like
you can appreciate it when a man does his job even if he doesn't like it.  You seem
so sweet.  I thought we had good chemistry. -- Oakhurst

Kirlua Noris -- Did I leave you with any ideas? -- Suicide Seed

Aeneas -- Yeah, yeah, yeah.  Say one word and I'm going to come back at you and
remove your face. -- Creve Coeur

I bet the Cartel will come back from the woods with a vengeance! -- LP
P.S.  Top spot is nice, though!

All my condolences for the loss of the experienced Cyril...  My guys have been
killing a lot lately, but I really don't have a clue why... -- Le Pentarque

If Adieu means what I think, thanks and good luck to you, Suicide Seed! -- Fidget

Sorry, 71, I'm not a very good learner myself... -- Classic Napalm

Zog Cornerstone -- "Unbelievably bested" is right!!  Even with twice the FE, you're
still less than half the warrior I am.  Maybe if I hadn't been slipping around in
your blood... ah well, there's always next time.  Unless you die first... -- Pandera
Pax

Sisi Ba-Neteru -- Challenging above your station may earn lots of points, but
challenging above your abilities will only earn you a hard beating... and maybe
death. -- Patroclus

Benedict -- Seriously--what were you THINKING??  I'd have killed you if I hadn't been
laughing so hard! -- Hippodameia

Georgia ST Pierre -- We both seem to be experimenting with our strategies. -- Tydeus

Creye Coeur -- You must be named after some sort of foreign, exotic liquor.  Beating
on you tasted sweet!  It might even be addicting... -- Aeneas

All -- Ah, now that three have left for AD, there will be three rookies to contend
with.  Maybe now we'll see a large shift in the prizes and honors.  I hope. -- Kid
Arcane

Classic Napalm -- Well, for a little while it looked like I might be able to graduate
a size 19.  Guess not, at this time anyway.  9-13-19-17-9-6-11 Striker.  At least he
will take that riposte favorite learn with him to the grave. -- Nomad

Roundup -- Sometimes all a guy needs is to not see a car coming out of the other
entracne to the sands.  It can make a big difference. -- Jager

Silent Knight -- First I try one strategy.  Nope.  Then I try another.  Still, no.  A
third attempt?  Still no.  And somehow you folks seem to have benefitted from my
experiments a lot.  Just wait until I get this figured out! -- Ziggy

Doppleganger -- I think I know your problem.  It would seem that your species'
greatest gift just doesn't work very well in the arena.  I still know you're the
"other guy" so it doesn't matter.  Perhaps you could try disguising yourself as a
scum? -- Turin

Clan Longbeard -- After I sliced Elthor's chest open I found that he was immortal and

I had no claim to his soul even if I killed him.  I decided to let him live and enjoy
his time on the isle.  Congrats.  Now send me another whose soul is ripe for
devouring. -- Pit Fiend

     I think they don't come into season for another month or two.

Scumpuncher -- Nice job on jumping me, but I will be back to Drag You To Hell.  By
the way, love the name. -- Lamia

0-2...0-2!  Not the way I wanted to sssstart.  Thingsss will turn around sssoon. --
Lizard Man

Vanek -- Did I say "thanks for the welcome"? -- Jorja

Gentleben -- Thanks for the welcome.  I know Larkin expects the hands this time
around, but Olaf wants 'em for the tourney spy report, too, so there may be a
problem. -- Jorja

Ligdish Bang -- Ouch!  I don't like loud bangs, and I guess that makes me, ah...
testy.  Although I would have expected someone of your style and experience to follow
through better on the initial bang? -- Nin Quayne

Pizzarrhea -- Euwh.  Can't stand the stuff, myself.  It's why I focus on the pasta.
-- Malle Pennelis
P.S.  WHY am I a golem?  Nobody warned me about that, you know.  I went for YEARS
just being an ordinary person, and then, boom, the Commission says I'm a golem!  Who
told them they COULD?

Angeroo -- Huh, I would've expected someone as hot-tempered as you sound to fight
faster. -- Lugg Opar

Suicide Seed -- I didn't know you could grow that from seed.  And who'd want to? --
Kirlua Noris

Oakhurst -- Being Rirorni, I'm from the plains.  What would I know about oaks? --
Poli Sarchis

Corporate Idiots and Monster Manual -- Any chance we can just let by gones be by
gones and settle this over a fresh pint of ale?  No?  I didn't think so.  I await
both of your bloodfeuds then. -- Vanek, Manager of Warmasters

La Pentarchie -- Whooaaa...76 points!  That is very impressive sir! -- Vanek

Outlaw Pete -- Congratulations on successfully defending the throne.  Not an easy
thing to do here in this arena. -- Vanek

Silent Knight -- I don't need to keep my back to the wall against you.  I eagerly
await another match up with you.  Please challenge me. -- Flaccus

Jorja -- Nope, not Dayla Kiv.  We've only ever run in Zenzu way back in the day and
then a short stint in Sunset.  Other than that, we are pure Shadowspirians thru and
thru. -- Vanek

Charles Martel -- Absolutely, that was disappointing.  Back to the old drawing board,
as they say. -- Shillelagh Tor

Patroclus -- Great job.  The weapon seems to suit you. -- Sisi

Harold -- Thanks for letting me have A skill.  Nice haul for you. -- Ozy

Walker -- That could have gone either way.  It's nice to pull that out. -- Lizzie
Dusk

Spork -- If you sharpened up one side you could be Sporknife. -- Dawn Ceres

Otto -- I like your new names.  I saw Subprime Rip and came up with Patty Meltdown.
You could go with Tuna, I suppose. -- Bill the Bard

Congrats to the recent grads! -- Bill the Bard and The Red Blades

Outlaw Pete -- Nice run on the throne. -- The Red Blades

Welcome to the new and returning teams. -- Bill the Bard

Outlaw Pete -- You are doing quite well for yourself considering your skill, congrats
and keep it up. -- O'Holy Knights

Jungleland -- Well, I guess the shadows here are being cast by very big trees, good
luck holding top team; you are doing exceptionally well right now. -- O'Holy Knights

Vanek -- I asked the commission if they would give me credit for the death of
Titinius but they said No, and then they laughed, not sure what that was all about
but anywho, if you wish to give kill all your guys after I fight them I would not be
opposed and would understand. -- Harold Angel

Tyger -- You tiger, you can stuff me anytime. -- Stalking Stuffr

Snackpack -- Mmmmm...pudding filling, very refreshing. -- Wee Tree King

Ozymadias Nix -- Ozzy!  Is that you?  I'm so confused!!! -- Harold Angel

Ziggy Pike -- You're lucky you're are not Ziggy On A Pike, you come back again and I
will turn you into a puppet for Jeff Dunam. -- Silent Knight

Nathan -- Any there is more of that where that came from! -- Savior Strength

To all those that graduated from Shadowspire and fought in the tourney, I hope you
did exceptionally well. -- Gentleben and the O'Holy Knights

Well, grats to Powder Hound, this guy is a living shotgun, and the Cat was lucky to
hold the ground 4 mn!  The throne will be mine again (one day). -- Le Pentarque.

That French Capet guy is definitely tough, I will have to use some old fart to get
that bloodfeud done.  By the way, thanks to Darque for his work on statistics.

Condolences to Nomad.  Alanna was a valiant gal. -- Le Pentarque
P.S.  Write some ads, guys!  Take 5 min...

Darque -- I don't know what's gotten into my warriors but they really seem to dislike
yours.  One Death and 2 Death intents!  I don't run my warriors with high KDs either!
But according to the Yellow Press it seems I get 1 kill every 12 turns average! --
DeGotti

Alana -- Alas!  We will not be able to dance again unless it's in the afterlife! --
Flor

Shadowspire Yellow Press -- Great job!  I had no idea that my stable was that deadly!
I also thought I would have been much higher in the deaths category! -- DeGotti

In honor of Cult of Bacchus being current top team we are having a wine party in the
name of Bacchus!  May he guide us to more glory!  So come down to the guild house and
enjoy all! -- DeGotti 

Onyx -- Scum me?  Maybe.  OTP me?  No. -- Liath

Brutus -- Yesh!  That went way longer than I thought it would. -- Grath

Chaucer -- When I saw who I was fighting I was shocked at the outcome. -- Dexter

Angrendraug -- This is a very sad day.  A loss was not a surprise, but the death was
truly sad.  Alanna was a quality warrior and will be missed.  And hopefully avenged.
-- Dragonbane Guild

Borne -- It was a pleasure meeting you!  Perhaps youth has its priviledges. --
Balliol

Chupacabron -- Well, now that was a very interesting fight.  I'm not used to having
them last that long.  Intriguing.  And successful. -- Gron

Dominatrix -- Tired of us yet?  I'd been struggling a bit lately and needed that one!

Congrats to the new Duelmaster. -- Dragonbane Guild

Grath -- Your first victory was a fluke due to an error on the strategy sheet.  The
second victory however, was not.  Congratulations, you fought well and deserved that
second win. -- Brutus

Sponge Bath -- I couldn't help myself.  After you proved to be such an outstanding
teacher the first time, I was hoping for more of the same the second time.  Your
teaching skills however earned an F for the second time around. -- Lutherius

Dragonbane Guild -- Our condolences on the loss of Alanna.  We know the pain that
comes from lossing a very good warrior. -- Vanek, manager of Warmasters

Gladitorial Commissioner -- If I get one more 3 wit replacement, I maybe forced to
release the compromising photos I have of you and that circus midget.  Don't say I
didn't warn you! -- Vanek

All -- It's been fun but it's time for me to say goodbye.  I was involved in the
first title fight (I lost), Duelmaster for 2 turns and now on my way to AD. -- '69
Mustang Boss

Awl -- The sooner you die, the sooner we can be done with this. -- American Muscle

RUGS -- I have three coming your way. -- Elephant

All -- Sorry for my long silence. -- Elephant

Trip -- What's the score I lost count at 5-0 me? -- Elephant

18 March 11
All -- Be aware of the comeback of the Cajun and his stables of gladiators!  Just
sayin' -- The Cajun
