                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of MURSKA!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with NO LOOK?  He actually 
beat HOUSE JHEREG's AMBRUS THE FAT, and walked away with 16 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at HOUSE JHEREG.  AMBRUS THE FAT lost 12 points to NO LOOK.  
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe AMBRUS THE FAT will provide more easy wins...  
Try as he might, VETERAN MERCENARY wasn't good enough at persuading GRAYSWAN to step 
down from the Duelmaster's throne...  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, 
PHILANTHROPISTS!  In my day, no team with a 517-390-34 would scare me off!  What's 
the problem, HOUSE JHEREG?  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged 
warrior, LAMBDA ARIETIS!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  
FEET CHARNO of HOUSE JHEREG knows how to pick 'em.  He challenged LAMBDA ARIETIS of 
ARIES who is up by 20.  Now was this a wise move?  FEET CHARNO perhaps got his just 
desserts, seeing as he was overcame by LAMBDA ARIETIS and ended up with 46 
recognition points.   
     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.  Are you 
as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen
