                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome KALTOS.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Phhbltt!  Too much drinking 
and too little dodging gave 5TH DIRE LANCERS a 0-0-0!  I got a good laugh out of it!  
It seems so recently people were saying DUNGEON CELL was washed up, finished.  But 
3-1-0 moved them up 0.  I guess they're washed no more...  What's with HIGHWAY 
GAMBLER?  He actually beat THE MIDDLE WAY 5's OSWALD QUORN, and walked away with 18 
more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at U PAY I SLAY while they watched 
SEYMORE GUTTS clobber LUCIA NERON.  She lost 7 points and got bruised from objects 
thrown from the stands.  BABY BLUE was reminded on the sands why BLACK DEATH is 
Duelmaster.  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your 
fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, DUNGEON CELL!  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at IT'S ALL OVER NOW ain't reelin'!  DUNGEON 
CELL's mad!   
     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!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  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
