                                      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 MICKEY HANDS?  
He actually beat CARDOW HUNTERS' BLACKBUCK, and walked away with 23 more points from 
the fight.  Major screwup at CARDOW HUNTERS.  BLACKBUCK lost 18 points to MICKEY 
HANDS.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe BLACKBUCK will provide more easy wins... 
Try as he might, LOST POTATO FARMER wasn't good enough at persuading FLOYD CASTAWAY 
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.   
     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.  
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.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good 
skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Mickey Hands -- You need more than hands, although hands are, of course, useful.  But
feet are good, too.  For jumping out of the way. -- Blackbuck

That I Do Sir -- Like heck you do!  Those moves are MINE. -- Grim Laughter
P.S.  But the winning record is good, however briefly I have it.  I thank you.

Bruce lee's Brother -- Shoulda sent YOUR brother. -- Gray Bear
P.S.  Or maybe your sister.  A sister would be best, I think.

Now the Old Coot is really Cranky.  Nothing like being beaned by... Hailstones

And the Mordant Salesman goes down the road having made no sale, which gives us an
undefeated turn.  Small Arena Syndrome. -- Ironhand, not knocking it
