                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome RIZTAB.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Up 'n down.  Up 'n down.  
Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, DREAMERS' 1st 
moved them up to 4-0-0 place.  What's with EYE BREAKER?  She actually beat RIZTAB's 
WILLIE THE RAT, and walked away with 16 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at 
BLUE NOTE.  TATUM lost 6 points to HELIODORUS.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe 
TATUM will provide more easy wins...  Try as she might, TAFFY wasn't good enough at 
persuading ELEVENTH to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Wouldn't it be nice 
to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of 
convicted prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  RIZTAB thinks SWEET MAGIC 
and their 781-1207-32 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at TORTURED ain't reelin'!  SWEET MAGIC's 
mad!   
     Warriors of RIZTAB unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Many a warrior has 
met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     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.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen
