                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to OSKSI once again!  Woof!  GAMES LIBRARY were a bunch of dogs 
after SORCERY COVENANT got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so sweet as 1st!  What's with 
KOVARAMANN VOTH?  He actually beat OSKSI's VENOMOUS CONCUBINE, and walked away with 
19 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at GAMES LIBRARY.  VANDELSHIMHAN TIRU 
lost 11 points to FARFALE.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe VANDELSHIMHAN TIRU 
will provide more easy wins...  Try as he might, RIGATONI wasn't good enough at 
persuading BUD GREEN to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  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...   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, 
places to go...   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  OSKSI is 
a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  I don't want to 
overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen
