                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome MALCORN.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with BLACKOAK?  He 
actually beat MALCORN's CAPTURED ORC, and walked away with 9 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at INK & STEEL RETRO.  THE NEEDLE lost 5 points to WREN.  Some 
new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe THE NEEDLE will provide more easy wins...  Try as he 
might, SUNDOG wasn't good enough at persuading INKED PIG to step down from the 
Duelmaster's throne...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  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.  
MALCORN is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  
Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- 
Olaf Modeen
