                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to MORDANT once again!  It seems so recently people were saying 
UPSTARTS was washed up, finished.  But 4-1-0 moved them up 0.  I guess they're washed 
no more...  What's with PIMPLED FARTHING?  It actually beat BOOZE's CUERVO, and 
walked away with 15 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at RUN DMC while 
they watched KING OF ROCK clobber UG LEE.  He lost 11 points and got bruised from 
objects thrown from the stands.  PAXTON was reminded on the sands why PRAETTIG 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...  The most avoided team 
was COLORFUL.  The bums at UPSTARTS couldn't face the challenges from COLORFUL!  No 
excuse for that!  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, 
JACK B. NIMBLE!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  Fighting 
is a better craft than farming, JACK B. NIMBLE, but you have to pay your dues.  Being 
challenged by PROBLEM CHILD, 21 points above you, is dues.  PROBLEM CHILD bested JACK 
B. NIMBLE.  MANNEQUIN'S BEST calls this fighting?  In my day...   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Hmm...  More surprises must remain in store for me, 
if 1271015171013 can return from the Dark Arena.  Many a warrior has met his fate in 
a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  MORDANT 
is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Folks, I am leaving Duel II for personal reasons.  I have no idea whether I may 
return, but don't count on it.  I will remain active in Lapur (29) and Jade Mountain 
(75), and that's it.  I have enjoyed knowing you.  Fare you well. -- Jorja
