                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in RIZTAB since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with AESARA?  She 
actually beat RIZTAB's WILLIE THE RAT, and walked away with 13 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at SWEET MAGIC.  KOKO LEAH lost 3 points to HERBIE HANCOCK.  
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe KOKO LEAH will provide more easy wins...  DIZZY 
GILLESPIE was reminded on the sands why MAC THE SPOON is Duelmaster.  Advice to 
fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was 
BLUE NOTE.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at THE SYNDICATE ain't reelin'!  
BLUE NOTE's mad!  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, 
KOKO LEAH!  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.  IZZY BERNSTEIN was plum wore out after HERMIAS 
pounded 'im silly in a Bloodfeud.  THE SYNDICATE'll have to get a little better 
before going after HERMIAS again!  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?  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
