                                      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 BOUTTE?  He 
actually beat CARDOW HUNTERS' FALLENROCK, and walked away with 19 more points from 
the fight.  Laughs were big at ARCANE ROYALTY while they watched BOUTTE clobber 
FALLENROCK.  He lost 16 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  
DULLENS, set your sights on KOO KOO KUNG FOO.  She'll be happy to entertain all 
requests after defeating STARSINGER.  BOUTTE looked pretty Duelmasterlike as he took 
DULLENS' top spot with 76 points.  Now, what will STARSINGER do?  Wouldn't it be nice 
to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of 
convicted prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting 
younger every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
DULLENS is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  I don't 
want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Two-three, and we're all over the front page?  Small Arena Syndrome strikes again.
No one really blames Fallenrock for losing to Sludge, but the birds--!  Again we find
them wanting.  Wanting the skill to win, mostly.  What did we do to deserve birds for
teammates? -- Starsinger, duelmaster by default
