                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in MORDANT since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Up 'n down.  Up 'n down.  
Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, LOW ROAD 3's 1st 
moved them up to 5-0-1 place.  What's with DELISE ORM?  She actually beat RUN DMC's 
DOWNWITHTHEKING, and walked away with 28 more points from the fight.  Major screwup 
at RUN DMC.  DOWNWITHTHEKING lost 22 points to DELISE ORM.  Some new strategies, 
perhaps?  Maybe DOWNWITHTHEKING will provide more easy wins...  See how the 
Duelmaster challenged RUN DMC's COLOSSEUM HALLS?  That sort of initiative is how he 
got where he is now.  COLOSSEUM HALLS was reminded on the sands why GRASSCUTTER 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...  MORDANT thinks RUN DMC 
and their 77-56-0 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  Management 
must be dealin', as the boys at SWEORDMASTERS ain't reelin'!  RUN DMC's mad!  What do 
people see in COLOSSEUM HALLS?  His 16-6-0?  RUN DMC ain't talkin', but he's got 97 
points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master 
many skills, fight dirty.   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  All work 
and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen
