                                      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.  Biff!  Pow!  KOLACT 
watched with glee as THIRSTY THUGS got knocked off top spot by ABOMINATION!  Hmmmph!  
I always thought THIRSTY THUGS was an over-rated team and they proved it with a 
0-4-0!  Ya gotta be quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  
Block out the pain!  JAY-Z is now ranked 3rd with a 2-2-0 turn.  Some people say I 
ramble too much, I don't say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I ramble.  Well 
ABOMINATION moved up 2, to 1st.  What's with 2012?  She actually beat ANTHROPOS 
KRATOS' GNAEUS MAGNUS, and walked away with 24 more points from the fight.  Laughs 
were big at JAY-Z while they watched ALLY YEAR MONEY clobber COUNT BLYTHE.  He lost 
20 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Try as he might, 
SALTY DOG wasn't good enough at persuading SLITHERING IDIOT to step down from the 
Duelmaster's throne...  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 ANTHROPOS KRATOS.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at 
THE MENTORS ain't reelin'!  ANTHROPOS KRATOS' mad!  How well I know the feeling of 
being the most challenged warrior, HAMMER!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come 
back to haunt you.  SCRAPY DORK of ORL 2013V knows how to pick 'em.  He challenged 
DARWIN of THE MENTORS who is up by 20.  Now was this a wise move?  SCRAPY DORK 
perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he subdued DARWIN and ended up with 53 
recognition points.  I hate going to the effort of writing about the kind of fights 
that RITA HAYWORTH gets in.  She fights people like 55 IN A 54, 9 points below.  I 
thought RITA HAYWORTH showed great skill and promise when she won victory over 55 IN 
A 54.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  2012 killed GNAEUS MAGNUS, and expects revenge from ANTHROPOS 
KRATOS.  The dead are better off dead--they have no worries.  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.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen
