                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to DULLENS once again!  What's with BIG HAIRY EYEBALL?  It actually 
beat CARDOW HUNTERS' LAUGHTER REDKNIFE, and walked away with 11 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at MMM-BEER while they watched BIG HAIRY EYEBALL clobber 
LAUGHTER REDKNIFE.  She lost 4 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  I'm sure DULLENS is excited about SKYFIRE, the new Duelmaster from CARDOW 
HUNTERS.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  I suppose you want 
to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...   
     Warriors of DULLENS unite.  You have only your games to lose!  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?  All 
work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Three-two, with the usual distribution:  wins over standbys, losses to managed
gladiators.  I salute you, Paragon Orca, and *I* have no trouble believing in your
victory; I expected it.  And the Ox will continue to have nightmares about the Big
Hairy Eyeball, too.  We'll have to consider ways to muffle him. -- Skyfire
