                                      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 ALICE AIN'T 
HERE?  She actually beat BLACK AND BLUES' BIG BILL BROONZY, and walked away with 24 
more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at PSYCHO SQUAD while they watched ALICE 
AIN'T HERE clobber BIG BILL BROONZY.  He lost 14 points and got bruised from objects 
thrown from the stands.  SIR RENARD D'KENSIS was reminded on the sands why SKIP JAMES 
is Duelmaster.  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your 
fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, 
fight dirty.   
     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.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen
