                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome ZUKAL.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have I 
fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with DRAUGLUIN?  He 
actually beat ZUKAL's CONVICTED THIEF, and walked away with 13 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at ARENA FELINES while they watched CAT-FU clobber STEELE.  
He lost 7 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Try as he 
might, BLUE HAVEN wasn't good enough at persuading TOP CAT to step down from the 
Duelmaster's throne...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about 
your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...   
     Warriors of ZUKAL unite.  You have only your games to lose!  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?  
ZUKAL is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Remember--a 
good fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen
