                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to ALJAFIR once again!  Woof!  ALL THINGS FLOYD were a bunch of 
dogs after THE OFFENDERS got through with 'em!  5th ain't so sweet as 1st!  Phhbltt!  
Too much drinking and too little dodging gave ALL THINGS FLOYD a 0-0-0!  I got a good 
laugh out of it!  Up 'n down.  Up 'n down.  Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I 
think I'm gonna be...  Well, MIDDLE WAY's 4th moved them up to 2-3-0 place.  What's 
with GIDJIT HAYES?  She actually beat FISH THANGS' OFF THE HOOK, and walked away with 
15 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at FISH THANGS.  OFF THE HOOK lost 12 
points to GIDJIT HAYES.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe OFF THE HOOK will 
provide more easy wins...  Har har har!  Did T.G.I. FLOYD'S wimp out, or just get 
lazy?  Anyway, it's not Duelmaster anymore.  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for 
MIDDLE WAY's outstanding member, Duelmaster GIDJIT HAYES.  Advice to fighters with a 
1 will--give up fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  ALJAFIR thinks ALL 
THINGS FLOYD and their 56-35-4 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give 
up...  Management must be dealin', as the boys at NERDS RULE! ain't reelin'!  ALL 
THINGS FLOYD's mad!  What do people see in ULTRO PINKY?  His 14-10-1?  MIDDLE WAY 
ain't talkin', but he's got 56 points.   
     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 CHUM can return from the Dark Arena.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, 
master many skills, fight dirty.   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
ALJAFIR 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

Here we are, back again.  You just can't get rid of us.  One-four-one.  Not how we'd
visualized our return, but at least none of us died, and it was only a standby who
got killed--

Hey!  I count!  Getting killed HURTS. -- Sonji of Fratsfa

You're a Fratsfa Slave, not a real person, and the Arenamaster isn't likely to
bloodfeud us. -- Gidjit Hayes

And it isn't every total parry who can kill with a shield, either. -- Ultro Pinky
