                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in ALJAFIR since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with ARAGON?  He 
actually beat ALJAFIR's VETERAN MERCENARY, and walked away with 12 more points from 
the fight.  Major screwup at MIDDLE WAY.  FENSTER GOLLY lost 5 points to LT SPORRE.  
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe FENSTER GOLLY will provide more easy wins...  
Try as he might, BARNUM CHELLS wasn't good enough at persuading CAPT KIRCHNER 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.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, ZOMBIE SQUAD 2!  In 
my day, no team with a 76-54-4 would scare me off!  What's the problem, 82ND 
ILLINOIS?   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, 
fight dirty.   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  ALJAFIR 
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

Capt Kirchner -- We have to stop meeting like this. -- Barnum Chells

Lt. Olsen -- I wish you hadn't done that.  It makes me look bad.  Ah, worse. --
Senlum Nosh
P.S.  But I'm a good teacher.  That's one thing I can do well.

Aragon -- Well, I *am* slim, but I would rather have slimly *won* the match. -- Caleb
Door

Dream Date Floyd -- For another neuter golem, maybe.  Not for me, my "dream date" is
definitely female. -- Morris Ormran

And I fight the Fratsfa Slave for the only win on our team today.  I wouldn't have
minded if some of my teammates had won, but if there was only going to be one win,
I'll take it. -- Fenster Golly
