                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of MALCORN!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with SNOWFOOT?  He actually 
beat BLOODSWORN's VITAE, and walked away with 26 more points from the fight.  Major 
screwup at BLOODSWORN.  VITAE lost 18 points to SNOWFOOT.  Some new strategies, 
perhaps?  Maybe VITAE will provide more easy wins...  I can barely restrain my 
enthusiam for THE GRAIL KNIGHTS' outstanding member, Duelmaster SIR TOO DUMB.  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.  The 
most avoided team was GREENWARDENS.  In my day, no team with a 936-1058-24 would 
scare me off!  What's the problem, THE GRAIL KNIGHTS?  How well I know the feeling of 
being the most challenged warrior, WHITE RABBIT!  Don't make idle boasts, they may 
come back to haunt you.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  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.  The end 
of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Three-two again.  Okay, two of the wins were over standbys, and ones which deserved
to be roundly defeated, too!  But they were wins.  And MY win was much worthier.  I
salute Sir Bubba for his challenge, too.  It takes nerve to rush onto someone's blade
like that. -- Badger
