                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome ALJAFIR.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Biff!  Pow!  ALJAFIR 
watched with glee as 82ND ILLINOIS got knocked off top spot by MIDDLE WAY!  What's 
with WONDER WOMAN?  She actually beat ALJAFIR's EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, and walked away 
with 11 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at MIDDLE WAY while they watched 
FENSTER GOLLY clobber SPARTACUS.  He lost 4 points and got bruised from objects 
thrown from the stands.  Har har har!  Did DAWN wimp out, or just get lazy?  Anyway, 
she's not Duelmaster anymore.  I'm sure ALJAFIR is excited about SENLUM NOSH, the new 
Duelmaster from MIDDLE WAY.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  
Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was 
ALL THINGS FLOYD.  The bums at DUEL REALITY couldn't face the challenges from ALL 
THINGS FLOYD!  No excuse for that!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master 
many skills, fight dirty.   
     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

Dawn -- I was doing fine, then you "came up like thunder out of Stormcrowe across the
bay."  What were you doing in Stormcrowe, anyway? -- Senlum Nosh

This is fairly embarrassing.  I should be able to handle that unarmed fool by now. --
Barnum Chells the Depressed

I was embarrassed, too, but not at the loss.  Well, not at the loss as such.  It was
the way that... FEMALE jumped on me and started to peel off my armor--!  I was hard
put to defend my virtue. -- Caleb Door

Somebody loves me.  The Fratsfa Slave was easy. -- Fenster Golly
P.S.  Of course, since he IS Fratsfan, which means Andorian, he's probably a wimp.

Lt Mueller -- I never know what to do with you military types.  The only thing I
could think of was to surrender. -- Morris Ormran
