                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in TALCAMA since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Hmmmph!  I always thought 
HIP HOP HEROES was an over-rated team and they proved it with a 0-1-0!  What's with 
GURGLES?  She actually beat ALCHEMY's SPAM GOLEM, and walked away with 27 more points 
from the fight.  Laughs were big at UNDEAD FROGS while they watched FROG ZOMBIE 
clobber AARON.  He lost 3 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands. 
Apparently TALCAMA isn't filled with as many gutless wonders as I thought.  The 
Dreaded Duelmaster got 3 challenges this turn!  Another fighter (RUTH 27-13-0) 
challenged another Duelmaster (KILL KITTEN 23-14-1).  Life goes on.  Try as she 
might, RUTH 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.  TALCAMA thinks UNDEAD FROGS 
and their 6-14-1 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  The bums at 
SHEPHERDS couldn't face the challenges from UNDEAD FROGS!  No excuse for that!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  We all knew it had to happen sooner or later.  A 
warrior can't stick around with a 19-24-2, and GURGLES easily took care of SPAM 
GOLEM.  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young 
rapscallions, take note!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  Are you 
as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen
