                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of RIZTAB!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with WHO?  It actually beat 
DREAMERS' PRODICUS, and walked away with 17 more points from the fight.  Major 
screwup at SWEET MAGIC.  KOKO LEAH lost 6 points to LEATHERFACE.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe KOKO LEAH will provide more easy wins...  Another fighter 
(BLACK HEART 11-3-2) challenged another Duelmaster (CRITIAS 12-3-2).  Life goes on.  
I'm sure RIZTAB is excited about BLACK HEART, the new Duelmaster from CARDS.  
(remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  Wouldn't it be nice to have 
live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted 
prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  The most avoided team 
was ALL HALLOW'S EVE.  In my day, no team with a 85-76-4 would scare me off!  What's 
the problem, CARDS?  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged 
warrior, DECOMPOSED COP!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.   
     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.   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  All 
work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen
