                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to LAPUR once again!  LAPUR has a Duelmaster who doesn't sit back 
and get lazy.  He challenged CARDOW HUNTERS' DANCES WITH RAIN (12-9-0), which should 
prove (ahem!) interesting.  Try as she might, DANCES WITH RAIN wasn't good enough at 
persuading MAUL RAT to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  I suppose you want 
to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, THE TAKEN!  The bums 
at ALMOST EXACTLY couldn't face the challenges from THE TAKEN!  No excuse for that!  
How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, DANCES WITH RAIN!  
Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  I hate going to the effort 
of writing about the kind of fights that MISTER TWISTER gets in.  He fights people 
like TOADSMACKER, 9 points below.  I thought MISTER TWISTER showed great skill and 
promise when he was beat by TOADSMACKER.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big 
deal!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  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.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Mister -- A "credit account" sounds good.  Does that mean that we, too, can get
skills?  Useful things, skills.  Better than money, in the long run. -- Red Mare

Two-three yet again, but NO standbys.  This works. -- Red Mare, for the Cardow
Hunters

Maul Rat -- Can I get some of that "credit"? -- Sandstorm

Little Thin God -- Even though you're thin, you can't dance between the raindrops as
I do.  There's a special trick to it. -- Dances with Rain

Mister Twister -- Drat.  Shucks.  Other epithets as appropriate. -- Windglass

Bak Shieldborn -- You must not be training skills.  EVERY ONE of our other opponents
learned stuff, but you didn't. -- Hunter

Toadsmacker -- I wish you would stop smacking me with those toads. -- Red Mare
