                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome LIN TIRIAN.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with DWARF 
FRICASSEE?  He actually beat LIN TIRIAN's CAPTURED ORC, and walked away with 18 more 
points from the fight.  Major screwup at SAND DANCERS.  ANN NASTY lost 8 points to 
CALEAM SEA BASS.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe ANN NASTY will provide more 
easy wins...  RIB IAYE was reminded on the sands why ROSS F. GRAY is Duelmaster.  
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...   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You 
young rapscallions, take note!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  All 
work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

     Yes!

Top team on the move?  I should think SO.  If you'd seen our two new teammates, YOU
would be on the move, too. -- Silver Slim

Three-two, not bad.  Only two of the wins were over standbys, too!  I guess the
