                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in MALCORN since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Woof!  DARK CREATION were 
a bunch of dogs after GREENWARDENS got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so sweet as 1st!  
What's with PATTERSON PINE?  He actually beat MEAT MARKET's TENDER LOIN, and walked 
away with 21 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at GREENWARDENS while they 
watched PATTERSON PINE clobber TENDER LOIN.  He lost 17 points and got bruised from 
objects thrown from the stands.  Try as he might, FOREVER wasn't good enough at 
persuading AFFIRMED to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  I suppose you want 
to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  What do people see in 
BUTCHER?  His 10-14-1?  MEAT MARKET ain't talkin', but he's got 49 points.  Taunt 
your opponent TREE SHADOW!  That was my lucky charm when I was unfairly challenged.  
(and by 24 points!)  LOTRUAXE should have an easy win.  LOTRUAXE's gonna be 
practicin' hard this week, after TREE SHADOW, lower ranked by far, mashed him!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  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.  
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

To those involved, no, I have not abandoned your stories.  But I've been letting them
drift, and that has to stop, so I am taking the time to make sure that I know where
they are going, more than just "what happens next" dreamed up on the fly, before
resuming work on them.  No new stories will be started until at least one of the old
ones has concluded, for the same reason:  quantity can't substitute for quality.
Your patience in this matter is appreciated. -- the Scribe
