                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome KALTOS.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with ISOBEL KLINE?  
She actually beat KALTOS' KHALHUMS DWARF, and walked away with 8 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at KALTOS while they watched AMBITIOUS GUARD clobber OSWALD 
QUORN.  He lost 11 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  
NEWLIN PARRIT was reminded on the sands why Y THE BOLD 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.   
     Warriors of KALTOS unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Is it my 
imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so 
gloriously!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  The 
end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Hey, not bad!  Four-one for us.  True, the four wins were all over standbys, but they
WERE still wins.  We aren't going to complain.  In fact, we feel so good about things
today, we'll congratulate Y the Bold on his victory and on retaining the title.  So
there! -- Sairy Wells

looking forward to it and that we will see you there!
