                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in KALTOS since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with LHOTSE?  She 
actually beat THE MIDDLE WAY 5's INGOLD KERR, and walked away with 23 more points 
from the fight.  Laughs were big at EVEREST LLP while they watched LHOTSE clobber 
INGOLD KERR.  He lost 17 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  
BLABB was reminded on the sands why HOFFA is Duelmaster.  Advice to fighters with a 1 
will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  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.  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
