                                      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 JIMI APPENDIX?  
He actually beat KAOS FROGS' SEA FROG, and walked away with 16 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at KAOS FROGS.  SEA FROG lost 15 points to JIMI APPENDIX.  Some 
new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe SEA FROG will provide more easy wins...  Our 
Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to KHALHUMS DWARF, BUT WHIRLING FROGGY is still the 
Duelmaster because she has the most recognition points!  I suppose you want to hear 
some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     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!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  All 
work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen
