                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to MALCORN once again!  What's with ARMEGADUS?  He actually beat 
RAINBOW CONNECTION's STEVE, and walked away with 22 more points from the fight.  
Laughs were big at DARK CREATION while they watched CYBERMANCER clobber STONEBOW.  He 
lost 18 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  See how the 
Duelmaster challenged GREENWARDENS' BRISTLECONE?  That sort of initiative is how he 
got where he is now.  BRISTLECONE was reminded on the sands why REXROTH is 
Duelmaster.  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.  How well I know the feeling 
of being the most challenged warrior, AGATE!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come 
back to haunt you.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, 
places to go...   
     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.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Apok -- Good try, but today (finally!) I can do nothing wrong in the arena. --
Rockwood

Starlyn Fyrefly -- You made that a good fight, yielding with the greatest reluctance
at every step.  I salute you. -- Agate

Rexroth -- Gods, I'm glad you won that!  I don't belong that high in the rankings
yet.  I'm not ready. -- Stonebow
P.S.  I'm trying to train my SZ, I need to be seriously taller.

Cybermancer -- Ah, someday, maybe, we'll have different opponents.  You think?  We
can hope, anyway.  The new teams are surely a good sign. -- Bristlecone

Street Legal -- You're a very strange person.  Must be the werecat in you. --
