                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to ZUWAYZA once again!  What's with DR. RUTH?  She actually beat 
THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS' THE ENQUIRER, and walked away with 21 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS.  THE ENQUIRER lost 16 points to DR. 
RUTH.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe THE ENQUIRER will provide more easy 
wins...  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS' outstanding 
member, Duelmaster MODERN SCENE.  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.   
     Warriors of ZUWAYZA unite.  You have only your games to lose!  MINI ME larned 
his lesson (FARM WEEKLY taught it well), and we right likely won't be seein' 'im 
fight any THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS members with the same gusto.  How long have I been 
here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
ZUWAYZA 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

Eric Cartman -- You REACTIONARY!  Old-fashioned, fuddy-duddy, trouble-making stick-
in-the-mud! -- Modern Scene
P.S.  It would be more modern and flexible of you to let someone ELSE be duelmaster.

Mini Me -- I did think of laying a curse on you--I had some good ones ready at hand,
so to speak--but then I figured, why waste the energy?  I may need it wherever I'm
going next, so I'm just going to leave you standing there among the trash.  Eat
banana peels, pipsqueak. -- Ghost of Trash Collector

Tanya Tunneller -- Just because you wear lipstick doesn't mean I can't recognize a
mole when I find one in my garden.  Repent, recant, depart! -- Farm Weekly

Ambitious Guard Caught Taking Bribes!  Read all about it, photos on page 10! -- The
Enquirer

Pendulous Patty -- That's frankly disgusting, and I wouldn't allow anything like that
in one of MY dioramas. -- Model Railroader
