                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to ALJAFIR once again!  Bein' on top is great while it lasts, 
YORK'S ARCADE.  But how many friends do you have now?  Phhbltt!  Too much drinking 
and too little dodging gave TRIUMPH OF ANGELS a 0-0-0!  I got a good laugh out of it! 
What's with A-1?  It actually beat ALJAFIR's EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, and walked away with 
16 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at MIDDLE WAY.  GARDNER HEDGE lost 8 
points to HEAD NUGENT.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe GARDNER HEDGE will 
provide more easy wins...  DEBRA ELSITH was reminded on the sands why JIMI APPENDIX 
is Duelmaster.  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover 
stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     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.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

P.S.  Good work, Jimi.  You came back from that appendectomy quite well.
