                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome TALCAMA.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Bein' on top is great while 
it lasts, BIG MEAN FISH.  But how many friends do you have now?  Hmmmph!  I always 
thought HELLBOURNE was an over-rated team and they proved it with a 0-0-0!  Ya gotta 
be quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the pain!  
WIZARDGUARD is now ranked 7th with a 5-0-1 turn.  What's with PIGSTICKER?  He 
actually beat ARROGANCE's HOFFA, and walked away with 17 more points from the fight.  
Laughs were big at OF WOLF AND MAN while they watched DRARR clobber ZEBRA SOLE.  It 
lost 10 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Another fighter 
(MR. DUTCH CRUNCH 20-7-0) challenged another Duelmaster (THE PHILANDERER 17-13-1).  
Life goes on.  I'm sure TALCAMA is excited about MR. DUTCH CRUNCH, the new Duelmaster 
from WASTELAND.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  I suppose 
you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  TALCAMA thinks WASTELAND 
and their 711-653-43 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  In my 
day, no team with a 710-651-43 would scare me off!  What's the problem, BIG MEAN 
FISH?  What do people see in HOFFA?  His 10-67-0?  ARROGANCE ain't talkin', but he's 
got 97 points.  Keep challenging up 26 points, THE VOYEUR, and I won't have to write 
about you much longer.  MISSION VAO always accepts those kind of challenges...  I 
don't get it.  THE VOYEUR goes and challenges MISSION VAO, way above him, but gets 2 
points after he loses!  Is this a new strategy?  OAKLAND FU didn't quite know what to 
make of a challenge it received from THE LUNATIC of IMPURE THOUGHTS, who is 18 points 
below it.  THE LUNATIC perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he was bested by 
OAKLAND FU and ended up with 7 recognition points.  I hate going to the effort of 
writing about the kind of fights that VOLITAN LIONFISH gets in.  He fights people 
like THE CLOSER, 14 points below.  I thought VOLITAN LIONFISH showed great skill and 
promise when he was bested by THE CLOSER.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big 
deal!   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  We all knew it had to happen sooner or later.  A warrior can't 
stick around with a 5-5-0, and MANAGER easily took care of HEX.  20 NPCS, PLEASE was 
plum wore out after MIDNIGHT pounded 'im silly in a Bloodfeud.  CENTER FOR OLDS'll 
have to get a little better before going after MIDNIGHT again!  How long have I been 
here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
TALCAMA is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  I don't 
want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen
