                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome VALAMANTIS.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with STRIKE 2?  
He actually beat AQUILA's XI AQUILAE, and walked away with 11 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at MIDDLE WAY 10.  LENDIS OHLM lost 9 points to KUNG-FU MASTER. 
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe LENDIS OHLM will provide more easy wins...  Try 
as he might, VETERAN MERCENARY wasn't good enough at persuading LON OLBERT to step 
down from the Duelmaster's throne...  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.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover 
stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     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!  Remember--a good 
fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Our congratulations to Street Racer, who may reach new lengths of nuisantcy, or maybe
nuisancehood (a much less interesting word) on the Isle, where the streets are narrow
and crowed. -- Jorja and those who walk the Middle Way

It looks like two-three for us.  Not stellar, but I suppose we'll take it. -- Oder
Quin, feeling left behind, as in: *I* should have graduated, too!
