                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to TRANSEL once again!  Bein' on top is great while it lasts, KREWE 
OF DRUID.  But how many friends do you have now?  Ya gotta be quick on yer feet!  
Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the pain!  HI ROLLERS is now 
ranked 4th with a 2-3-0 turn.  What's with FLATLINER?  He actually beat MEDAL OF 
HONOR B6's GRUNT 29, and walked away with 24 more points from the fight.  Major 
screwup at MEDAL OF HONOR B6.  GRUNT 29 lost 16 points to FLATLINER.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe GRUNT 29 will provide more easy wins...  TRANSEL has a 
Duelmaster who doesn't sit back and get lazy.  He Dark Arena Challenged DARK ARENA's 
VAREN D'KENSIS (0-0-0), which should prove (ahem!) interesting.  The crowds were 
amazed this turn, as VAREN D'KENSIS killed the Duelmaster, BANKSHOT, leaving HI 
ROLLERS in mourning.  So now HOFFA gets to be TRANSEL's Duelmaster.  But what comes 
around goes around.  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.  The most avoided team was 
KREWE OF DRUID.  The bums at DARK PANTHEON couldn't face the challenges from KREWE OF 
DRUID!  No excuse for that!  What do people see in HOFFA?  His 23-31-0?  THE LADY'S 
LIST ain't talkin', but he's got 103 points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  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?  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
