                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome MALCORN.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Biff!  Pow!  MALCORN 
watched with glee as BLIND MELON got knocked off top spot by GREENWARDENS!  What's 
with GOLDEN STAIRS?  She actually beat INK & STEEL RETRO's PURPLE DRAGON, and walked 
away with 18 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at GREENWARDENS while they 
watched GOLDEN STAIRS clobber PURPLE DRAGON.  It lost 11 points and got bruised from 
objects thrown from the stands.  Try as he might, SUNDOG wasn't good enough at 
persuading INKED PIG to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Wouldn't it be 
nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses 
of convicted prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  MALCORN thinks INK & STEEL 
RETRO and their 42-17-2 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at THE DEVIL'S OWN ain't reelin'!  INK & 
STEEL RETRO's mad!   
     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.  
MALCORN is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  I don't 
want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen
