                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome JHELUM.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Biff!  Pow!  JHELUM watched 
with glee as PEARL JAM got knocked off top spot by DOGS OF WAR!  What's with 
DARKSPEAR?  He actually beat JHELUM's EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, and walked away with 20 more 
points from the fight.  KID KOALA was reminded on the sands why VAR-KHAN 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.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  I hate going to the effort 
of writing about the kind of fights that SKULLHAMMER gets in.  He fights people like 
JAEGER, 8 points below.  I thought SKULLHAMMER showed great skill and promise when he 
was beat by JAEGER.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Warriors of JHELUM unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Here's some 
advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     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.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen
