                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of TALCAMA!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Woof!  CENTER FOR OLDS were a bunch 
of dogs after SHEPHERDS got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so sweet as 1st!  What's 
with GURGLES?  She actually beat SHEPHERDS' RUTH, and walked away with 24 more points 
from the fight.  Major screwup at CENTER FOR OLDS.  SLIPPERY MICKEY lost 11 points to 
INNOCENT BYSTANDER.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe SLIPPERY MICKEY will 
provide more easy wins...  Apparently TALCAMA isn't filled with as many gutless 
wonders as I thought.  The Dreaded Duelmaster got 2 challenges this turn!  SHEPHERDS' 
hatred of ARDUIN GRIMOIRE surfaced again as A'S SPECIAL BLEND challenged TALCAMA's 
top dog.  Try as he might, A'S SPECIAL BLEND wasn't good enough at persuading KILL 
KITTEN to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  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.  The most avoided team was 
CENTER FOR OLDS.  The bums at SHEPHERDS couldn't face the challenges from CENTER FOR 
OLDS!  No excuse for that!   
     Warriors of TALCAMA 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!   
     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!  I don't want to 
overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen
