                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of ALJAFIR!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Up 'n down.  Up 'n down.  Rankings 
always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, BODY OF MUSIC's 3rd moved 
them up to 2-1-1 place.  What's with TOBIT OPPAT?  He actually beat ALJAFIR's 
PERSISTENT BEGGAR, and walked away with 15 more points from the fight.  Major screwup 
at MIDDLE WAY.  MORRIS ORMRAN lost 7 points to WHIRLING FROGGY.  Some new strategies, 
perhaps?  Maybe MORRIS ORMRAN will provide more easy wins...  Har har har!  Did YEATS 
wimp out, or just get lazy?  Anyway, he's not Duelmaster anymore.  I'm sure ALJAFIR 
is excited about WHIRLING FROGGY, the new Duelmaster from KAOS FROGS.  (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.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Hmm...  More surprises must remain in store for me, if DA2 can 
return from the Dark Arena.  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, places 
to go...   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  The end 
of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen
