                                      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, NEW 
BLADES.  But how many friends do you have now?  Phhbltt!  Too much drinking and too 
little dodging gave NEW BLADES a 0-0-0!  I got a good laugh out of it!  Ya gotta be 
quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the pain!  
ROYAL PAIN is now ranked 2nd with a 2-2-0 turn.  What's with JET CITY WOMAN?  She 
actually beat MIDDLE WAY's GARDNER HEDGE, and walked away with 17 more points from 
the fight.  Major screwup at MIDDLE WAY.  NORBURN PINE lost 3 points to DANGEROUS 
CRIMINAL.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe NORBURN PINE will provide more easy 
wins...  GIDJIT HAYES was reminded on the sands why LEAD BELLY is Duelmaster.  
Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is 
looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  How well I know the feeling 
of being the most challenged warrior, KENNY CHESTNEY!  Don't make idle boasts, they 
may come back to haunt you.  QUEEN CRIMSON of ROYAL PAIN knows how to pick 'em.  She 
challenged KENNY CHESTNEY of BODY OF MUSIC who is up by 24.  Now was this a wise 
move?  QUEEN CRIMSON perhaps got hers just desserts, seeing as she lost to KENNY 
CHESTNEY and ended up with 5 recognition points.   
     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.   
     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
