                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome RODEKI.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Biff!  Pow!  RODEKI watched 
with glee as DEALER'S CHOICE got knocked off top spot by DELVERS!  It seems so 
recently people were saying THE SOVEREIGN was washed up, finished.  But 3-1-0 moved 
them up 1.  I guess they're washed no more...  What's with BLUE SMOKE?  She actually 
beat DEALER'S CHOICE's EARLY OUT, and walked away with 11 more points from the fight. 
Laughs were big at THE SOVEREIGN while they watched BLUE SMOKE clobber EARLY OUT.  
She lost 8 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Try as he 
might, KHALHUMS DWARF wasn't good enough at persuading ROCKSNAIL 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.  RODEKI thinks DELVERS and 
their 919-1196-22 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  Management 
must be dealin', as the boys at THE SOVEREIGN ain't reelin'!  DELVERS' mad!  How well 
I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, SILVER LADY!  Don't make 
idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  Keep challenging up 26 points, 
LONG-N-SLIM, and I won't have to write about you much longer.  21 always accepts 
those kind of challenges...  I don't get it.  LONG-N-SLIM goes and challenges 21, way 
above her, but gets 4 points after she loses!  Is this a new strategy?  BEER of 
DEALER'S CHOICE knows how to pick 'em.  He challenged JOSEPH GEORGE of DELVERS who is 
up by 23.  Now was this a wise move?  BEER perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as 
he was defeated by JOSEPH GEORGE and ended up with 71 recognition points.   
     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!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
RODEKI 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
