                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in DULLENS since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with SHOCK TOP?  It 
actually beat ARCANE ROYALTY's THE LIBRARIAN, and walked away with 22 more points 
from the fight.  Major screwup at ARCANE ROYALTY.  THE LIBRARIAN lost 16 points to 
SHOCK TOP.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe THE LIBRARIAN will provide more easy 
wins...  Try as he might, GOLDENEYE wasn't good enough at persuading THE BEAKSTER to 
step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and 
dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.   
     Warriors of DULLENS unite.  You have only your games to lose!  I like to see 
warriors put young whippersnappers in their place.  I guess you could say 
DULLENS'TOODLES ENRAGED! did just that.  Right ARCANE ROYALTY?  Here's some advice:  
study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     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
