                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to ZUKAL once again!  What's with EELY JOE?  He actually beat BLUE 
MOON's SAFFIRA, and walked away with 20 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at 
BLUE MOON.  SAFFIRA lost 15 points to EELY JOE.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe 
SAFFIRA will provide more easy wins...  MORAVIA MAUVE was reminded on the sands why 
KEEL HAULER is Duelmaster.  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip 
about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     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?  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, 
fight dirty.   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  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
