                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome RIZTAB.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with MARTYR?  He 
actually beat SWEET MAGIC's GRUBSTAKER, and walked away with 14 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at SWEET MAGIC.  GRUBSTAKER lost 8 points to MARTYR.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe GRUBSTAKER will provide more easy wins...  RIZTAB has a 
Duelmaster who doesn't sit back and get lazy.  He Dark Arena Challenged DARK ARENA's 
STONE GOLEM MARK II (0-0-0), which should prove (ahem!) interesting.  The crowds were 
amazed this turn, as STONE GOLEM MARK II killed the Duelmaster, HERMIAS, leaving 
DREAMERS in mourning.  So now ELEVENTH gets to be RIZTAB's Duelmaster.  But what 
comes around goes around.  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 SWEET MAGIC.  In my day, no team with a 777-1191-32 would scare 
me off!  What's the problem, TORTURED?   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, places to 
go...   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
RIZTAB is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen
