                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to MORDANT once again!  Phhbltt!  Too much drinking and too little 
dodging gave SWEORDMASTERS a 0-3-0!  I got a good laugh out of it!  Welcome to 
MORDANT, OUTTA PHASE!  We need more teams who can get a 4-1-0 their first time out!  
What's with STILE?  He actually beat MORDANT's GESHI SCRIVENER, and walked away with 
20 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at BEAUTY OF HELL.  ABOMINATION lost 12 
points to CHER.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe ABOMINATION will provide more 
easy wins...  I'm sure MORDANT is excited about LITTLE BEAR, the new Duelmaster from 
HOMICIDAL MANIACS.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  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.  How 
well I know the feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of 
practive, SWEORDMASTERS!  Management must be dealin', as the boys at MIGHTY MORALS II 
ain't reelin'!  SWEORDMASTERS' mad!  Fighting is a better craft than farming, CKYNST 
OAF, but you have to pay your dues.  Being challenged by HONESTY, 22 points above 
you, is dues.  I have to get this off my chest.  What a low dog, HONESTY!  He can't 
set himself up in a real match.  I was sorry to see CKYNST OAF lose.   
     Warriors of MORDANT unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Is it my 
imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so 
gloriously!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
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.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now. 
Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Hmm, looks like the Dark Arena is getting a workout.  Has Kakar hit you-all yet for
"torch money"?  Ten this time!

Honesty -- We're all amazed that the Oaf still steps out against you.  He's got more
grit, or maybe it's just stupidity, than we gave him credit for. -- the other Maniacs

Assur -- One thing I learned in alleys is patience. -- Random Maniac

Ah, I see the fans love me!  They know I give good value and keep the alleys clear of
trash. -- Random Maniac

Honesty -- Does it bother you when the Oaf lies down and invites you to trample him?
If that is what his gestures me, of course.  We think he may have conceived the
notion that you're female. -- Little Bear

Crater Face -- You're enough to scare a gargoyle, much less a simple bear. -- Little
Bear
P.S.  But the fans approve of my effort to (shudder) "face" you.

Waelgaest -- This will probably lead to Bad Things as the alley-lurkers get the
mistaken idea that I'm easy. -- Random Maniac

Cher -- So!  You're anti-cereal!  The truth comes out! -- Cereal Killer
P.S.  And you're a fake blonde.
P.P.S.  I don't understand why the fans booed me.

18 March 11
All -- Be aware of the comeback of the Cajun and his stables of gladiators!  Just
sayin' -- The Cajun
