                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to ALJAFIR once again!  What's with SENLUM NOSH?  He actually beat 
THE GENERALS' HANNABLE, and walked away with 16 more points from the fight.  Major 
screwup at THE GENERALS.  BRUNHILDA lost 5 points to ALIDA BERN.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe BRUNHILDA will provide more easy wins...  ALJAFIR, set 
your sights on KHALHUMS DWARF.  He'll be happy to entertain all requests after 
defeating BRADLEY.  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.   
     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.  
The end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want 
to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

you a hone-cooked dinner tonight if you like. -- Alida Bern

I'm not cooking for the Captured Orc! -- Zebd Arvin

I heard the Ambitious Guard puts CATSUP on his eggs benedict!  A total phillistine.
