                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to ZUKAL once again!  Bein' on top is great while it lasts, HOT 
STUFF.  But how many friends do you have now?  What's with MABUSHI?  It actually beat 
BLUE MOON's BITTERMAN, and walked away with 9 more points from the fight.  Major 
screwup at BLUE MOON.  BLAMMO lost 4 points to SERPENT 2.  Some new strategies, 
perhaps?  Maybe BLAMMO will provide more easy wins...  Har har har!  Did SHORT SKIRT 
wimp out, or just get lazy?  Anyway, she's not Duelmaster anymore.  I can barely 
restrain my enthusiam for SERPENTS HOLD 2's outstanding member, Duelmaster MABUSHI.  
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.  The 
most avoided team was HOT STUFF.  In my day, no team with a 76-52-8 would scare me 
off!  What's the problem, IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY?  How well I know the feeling of being 
the most challenged warrior, BLUE STREAK!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back 
to haunt you.   
     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.   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
The end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want 
to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen
