                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome ALJAFIR.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with SEA FROG?  He 
actually beat MIDDLE WAY's DEBRA ELSITH, and walked away with 21 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at KAOS FROGS while they watched SEA FROG clobber DEBRA 
ELSITH.  She lost 17 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  I'm 
sure ALJAFIR is excited about YEATS, the new Duelmaster from DEAD POETS.  (remember?) 
But when you've seen as many as I have...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up 
fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...   
     Warriors of ALJAFIR unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Is it my 
imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so 
gloriously!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
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

active at all.  I felt a little, um, hoggish, perhaps, having so much of the front
page, but... who else is there?  We salute you, Jimi Appendix, and will try not to
have you amputated. -- Fenster Golly, forgoing a duelmaster's column

Four-one for us today, the wins being over standbys, the loss to Jimi Appendix.
