                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in TRANSEL since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with NOT-A-NUT 
JONES?  He actually beat THE DIRECTORS' ORSON WELLS, and walked away with 21 more 
points from the fight.  Major screwup at THE DIRECTORS.  ORSON WELLS lost 12 points 
to NOT-A-NUT JONES.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe ORSON WELLS will provide 
more easy wins...  Our Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to WEGERIN GREATBLADE, BUT 
ACOLYTE 1 is still the Duelmaster because he has the most recognition points!  Advice 
to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You 
young rapscallions, take note!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
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.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- 
Olaf Modeen

Orson Wells -- Martians?  Bah!  You know nothing of fear. -- Normal Nan

Acolyte 2 -- A second-string flunky. -- Happy Harriet

Austin Nordell -- Well for you that you surrendered when you did.  Eve would have
killed you, and I wouldn't have tried to stop her. -- Emma and Eve

John Huston -- Of course you have monsters in your bathtub.  It's the special
effects, isn't it?  How'd you get that big a budget? -- Not-a-Nut Jones

All -- I know you all thought the old Wiz that is Fiz went off to die somewhere.
Well, I didn't.  Now I'm back to befuddle and frustrate you with my senseless
ramblings.  I look forward to reconnecting with all my old friends and enemies alike.
