                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to DWES EG once again!  Biff!  Pow!  DWES EG watched with glee as 
ORIOLE MADNESS got knocked off top spot by IN SHINOLA!  You know what they say about 
the herd of lions who studied a judge...  MY FAMILY moved up 14 places, to 6th.  Who 
can explain it?  Not you, not me, not DRAWN TOGETHER's opponents, after watching them 
shoot up the ranks from 26th to 8th.  You know what they say about the herd of lions 
who studied a judge...  COUNTRY PEOPLE moved up 21 places, to 12th.  Who can explain 
it?  Not you, not me, not SOUL REAPERS' opponents, after watching them shoot up the 
ranks from 41st to 29th.  What's with FISH?  He actually beat GWAR's HORROR OF YIG, 
and walked away with 20 more points from the fight.  Try as he might, PEANUTS wasn't 
good enough at persuading MIRED to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Advice 
to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  The 
most avoided team was THIRSTY THUGS 0515.  The bums at CRESCENT SHIELD couldn't face 
the challenges from THIRSTY THUGS 0515!  No excuse for that!  What do people see in 
NOXIOUS FUMES?  His 4-1-0?  DEADLY ATTACKS ain't talkin', but he's got 23 points.  I 
hate going to the effort of writing about the kind of fights that ARABIAN gets in.  
He fights people like 3 WIT, 10 points below.  I thought ARABIAN showed great skill 
and promise when he was defeated by 3 WIT.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big 
deal!   
     Warriors of DWES EG unite.  You have only your games to lose!  PEANUTS, with his 
forgettable 12-14-0,  was killed by MIRED in a forgettable match.  ALLERGY didn't 
seem to mind very much.  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You 
young rapscallions, take note!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
DWES EG is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  
Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- 
Olaf Modeen
