                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in KOLACT since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with CRAZY OLD 
COOT?  He actually beat THE ABYSMALS' ESPINOSO, and walked away with 14 more points 
from the fight.  Major screwup at SPRINGBORN.  BUFFALO BOB lost 11 points to NESTOR 
ORDH.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe BUFFALO BOB will provide more easy 
wins...  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for THE MOONDOGS' outstanding member, 
Duelmaster PERSEA QUELL.  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.  How 
well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, MOOR O'NDUL!  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?  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every 
day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     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.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Thiaoo-Trigg -- Freeze!  You!...the soda jerk!  You're a good looking fellow, ever
act?  Get you, maybe, a part in my next picture....you can call me Otto. (can't get
the celluloid outta my blood) -- Crazy Old Coot

Icarus -- Fly little birdie, take wing. -- Devil Girl

Moor O'Ndul -- You're right, <bow> sir.  The capital "N" in your name does make a
difference.  And I guess spelling it with a small case "n" was an insult, but it
wasn't implied.  Course it is implied that you have to earn the respect your name
accrues, especially the capital "N". -- C.O.C.

Nestor Ordh -- I'm tying to develop the rhythm with my actions, that way I shouldn't
have to think about my next move.  Moves should naturally follow the previous flow of
the moment...rhythmically. -- Buffalo Bob

Odiosa -- Oof, check out my current opponent.  Guess it wasn't Apple Time. -- Annie

Sir Cumference -- I realize that the island of Kolact is a more pleasant place to
live than the island of the Eye, but gods, man, couldn't you GRADUATE?  You're
hanging around as long as any one of us might. -- Cynica

Convicted Assassin.  (sigh) -- Persea Quell

Buffalo Bob -- Okay, but I won't dance by the light of the moon.  Not enough light to
see by until way too late to be out and about. -- Nestor Ordh

Devil Girl -- Wow, that was a kiss that nearly peeled my face off!  Hot da--  Uh, hot
diggity, chick, do it again! -- Icarus
P.S.  Not to mention that you just about melted my wings.

Espinoso -- What a dame!  Graceful as a cat, but sinisterly left-handed.  I wasn't
sure what to make of you, so...I made chopped liver.  Only temporarily, of course. --
Moor O'ndul

Buffalo Bob -- Squares and circles both!  And if they want to dance in triangles,
provided they don't insist on only moonlight, I'm for it. -- Nestor Ordh

Crazy Old Coot -- What?  I should've looked somewhere?  Why didn't you SAY so?  I
can't stand it when people hint at things. -- Moor O'ndull
