                                      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.  Woof!  BLACK AND BLUES 
were a bunch of dogs after MEDAL OF HONOR Y2 got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so 
sweet as 1st!  What's with SERGEANT 2?  He actually beat TRANSEL's EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, 
and walked away with 20 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at MACHINES OF 
WAR.  CRUSADER lost 15 points to SWEET.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe 
CRUSADER will provide more easy wins...  I'm sure TRANSEL is excited about 
JUGGERNAUT, the new Duelmaster from MACHINES OF WAR.  (remember?)  But when you've 
seen as many as I have...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  
TRANSEL thinks MEDAL OF HONOR Y2 and their 36-35-3 is too much!  If at first you 
don't succeed, give up...  In my day, no team with a 32-34-3 would scare me off!  
What's the problem, LIKE IT!?  What do people see in R.L.?  His 7-6-0?  BLACK AND 
BLUES ain't talkin', but he's got 46 points.  Fighting is a better craft than 
farming, ALICE AIN'T HERE, but you have to pay your dues.  Being challenged by 
DESMOND DOSS, 22 points above you, is dues.  DESMOND DOSS beat ALICE AIN'T HERE.  I 
bet DESMOND DOSS could beat two-year-olds, too.  Well, PSYCHO SQUAD knows who to set 
their sights on.  I hate going to the effort of writing about the kind of fights that 
MONEY gets in.  It fights people like R.L., 9 points below.  I thought MONEY showed 
great skill and promise when it overcame R.L..  All right, so I slept through it!  
Big deal!   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  SEIGE ENGINE looked pretty sick and surprised when he learned 
MACHINES OF WAR is sending him to the Dark Arena!  Whadd'he expect with a 10-3-0?  So 
MACHINES OF WAR sent SEIGE ENGINE to the Dark Arena.  Big deal.  Plenty more fighters 
where SEIGE ENGINE came from.  Dime a dozen...  Now, Spyreporters...  Many a warrior 
has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  All work 
and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen
