                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome JHELUM.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Up 'n down.  Up 'n down.  
Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, DOGS OF WAR's 
4th moved them up to 4-1-1 place.  What's with MAT'ARI?  She actually beat TRIBAL 
COUNCIL's RUNNING DEER, and walked away with 30 more points from the fight.  Major 
screwup at TRIBAL COUNCIL.  RUNNING DEER lost 26 points to MAT'ARI.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe RUNNING DEER will provide more easy wins...  Try as she 
might, PUY wasn't good enough at persuading KENYA to step down from the Duelmaster's 
throne...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was 
DOGS OF WAR.  The bums at THE REPLACEMENTS couldn't face the challenges from DOGS OF 
WAR!  No excuse for that!   
     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!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
All work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Kenya -- Now, this did NOT amaze me.  The only amazing part is that you haven't
graduated, and I see that's happening forthwith.  Congratulations. -- Red Hammer

Running Deer -- So, you're back.  I guess this is good, though I would rather have
greeted you with a loss.  But we do as we must and as we can. -- Germaine Sheppard

Brave 1 -- Rats. -- Mat'ari

Snapping Turtle -- I'm fairly sure an amphibian should be going dormant by now.  You
need to work on that. -- Julian

Stroke Broker -- Heck, you broke my stroke! -- Cusster

Our congratulations to Kenya and Cassis, and a general salute to the tourney
participants. -- Jorja and the Dogs of War

Tokara -- You are one deadly pitviper at 3-0-1. -- Da Vinci Code

Wise Owl -- Oh, a wise guy huh? -- Wheel of Time

Ultimate Fighter -- I'd argue with the title if you didn't finish me in one hit. --
