                                      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.  Up 'n down.  Up 'n down.  
Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, VIKINGS' 2nd 
moved them up to 3-1-0 place.  It seems so recently people were saying THE HOLY 
LEGION was washed up, finished.  But 3-1-0 moved them up 0.  I guess they're washed 
no more...  What's with DAGG AXELJORG?  He actually beat THE MENTORS' HILLARY, and 
walked away with 26 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at VIKINGS while 
they watched DAGG AXELJORG clobber HILLARY.  She lost 22 points and got bruised from 
objects thrown from the stands.  What a role model for KOLACT's young 'uns!  KRAKO 
becomes Duelmaster, but don't bother to fight no more!  I can barely restrain my 
enthusiam for THIRSTY THUGS' outstanding member, Duelmaster COUNT BLYTHE.  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.  
KOLACT thinks ANTHROPOS KRATOS and their 53-81-1 is too much!  If at first you don't 
succeed, give up...  In my day, no team with a 50-79-1 would scare me off!  What's 
the problem, THE HOLY LEGION?  What do people see in GOY?  His 12-13-0?  ANTHROPOS 
KRATOS ain't talkin', but he's got 63 points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  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.  
All work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen
