                                      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.  What's with GOLDEN STAIRS? 
She actually beat MALCORN's VENOMOUS CONCUBINE, and walked away with 19 more points 
from the fight.  Major screwup at GREENWARDENS.  SUNDOG lost 11 points to VETERAN 
MERCENARY.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe SUNDOG will provide more easy 
wins...  Try as she might, HONEYSUCKLE wasn't good enough at persuading SHANK to step 
down from the Duelmaster's throne...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and 
dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover 
stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     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

Shank -- About what I expected. -- Sundog
P.S.  You knew we weren't going to bloodfeud, didn't you?  Thus making no reason not
to send that killer to the Dark Arena on the turn right after he killed.  Well, you
were correct, we would not have sought a bloodfeud, though chance might have thrown
one our way.

Okay, maybe I was a little over-enthusiastic in my subduing of the Khalhums Dwarf.
It was a bad day.  I was annoyed, even upset.  And he was a tactless idiot.  Sue me.
-- Honeysuckle

I would sneer at the Userous Merchant, but I don't want to lower myself that far. --
Golden Stairs

Glick -- A golem snake.  Not what I wanted for my first fight. -- Wren

And a dumb Convicted Thief. -- Blackoak
