                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of TRANSEL!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with ROBERT JOHNSON?  He 
actually beat TRANSEL's SIR RENARD D'KENSIS, and walked away with 11 more points from 
the fight.  Laughs were big at T IS FOR ... while they watched TAX clobber SHIRLEY 
KNOTT.  He lost 5 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  I can 
barely restrain my enthusiam for PSYCHO SQUAD's outstanding member, Duelmaster LIZZIE 
BROADAXE.  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some 
team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...   
     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!   
     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
