                                      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 CYONE?  She 
actually beat ZUKAL's DANGEROUS CRIMINAL, and walked away with 9 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at BLUE MOON.  WILKERSON lost 3 points to RED SPECIAL.  Some 
new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe WILKERSON will provide more easy wins...  I can 
barely restrain my enthusiam for KARNHORN KARNAGE's outstanding member, Duelmaster 
EXPENDABLE YOUTH.  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  ZUKAL thinks QUEEN and their 
149-81-10 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  In my day, no team 
with a 146-79-10 would scare me off!  What's the problem, KARNHORN KARNAGE?   
     Warriors of ZUKAL unite.  You have only your games to lose!  How long have I 
been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  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.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

One-four.  I am so totally not surprised.  I defeated a standby, and everyone else
lost to a managed gladiator.  Sometimes it's hard to remember that we do, now and
then, defeat managed gladiators also.  Just... not today.  Oh, well. -- Cyone
