                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in RIZTAB since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with LINEKER?  He 
actually beat PURE POISON's SARIN, and walked away with 15 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at PURE POISON while they watched AGENT ORANGE clobber 
METRODORUS.  He lost 7 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  
See how the Duelmaster challenged DREAMERS' MYIA?  That sort of initiative is how he 
got where he is now.  MYIA was reminded on the sands why FLASH is Duelmaster.  
Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is 
looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, FANTASTIC 
FIVE II!  Management must be dealin', as the boys at PURE POISON ain't reelin'!  
FANTASTIC FIVE II's mad!  What do people see in METRODORUS?  His 5-6-0?  DREAMERS 
ain't talkin', but he's got 46 points.  Fighting is a better craft than farming, 
THING, but you have to pay your dues.  Being challenged by JIM BEAM, 29 points above 
you, is dues.  JIM BEAM bested THING.  I bet JIM BEAM could beat two-year-olds, too.  
Well, FANTASTIC FIVE II knows who to set their sights on.   
     Warriors of RIZTAB unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Is it my 
imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so 
gloriously!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  All work 
and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen
