                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome DULLENS.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with WOLFDOG?  He 
actually beat HOUSE OF CARDS' FATHER OF FOUR, and walked away with 20 more points 
from the fight.  Laughs were big at CARDOW HUNTERS while they watched WOLFDOG clobber 
FATHER OF FOUR.  He lost 13 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  ANVIL was reminded on the sands why ROBERT ROY is Duelmaster.  Advice to 
fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, HOUSE OF CARDS!  In 
my day, no team with a 167-105-3 would scare me off!  What's the problem, HOUSE OF 
CARDS?   
     Warriors of DULLENS unite.  You have only your games to lose!  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.  
The end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want 
to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Segue -- You do this on purpose, don't you?  Gloating!  And I should be GONE from
here, the Commission should look at me and say "sandbagger" and grant me immortality,
but NOOOO, people like you are KEEPING ME DOWN, and I'm TIRED OF IT! -- Anvil the
ill-used

Gemma -- You're too big.  It seems wrong for a woman to be so big.  Have you tried
washing in really hot water to see if you can shrink? -- Bearfoot

Father of Four -- Four what? -- Wolfdog

Unexpected Sequel -- Well, damn, I wasn't expecting you. -- Laughter Redknife

Corky -- Not the introduction to gladiating that I hoped for, but I suppose it can be
taken as a "nowhere to go but up" experience. -- Blackbuck
