                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in ZUWAYZA since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with SAMUEL COLT?  
He actually beat KARNHORN KARNAGE's PUTRID DEFILER, and walked away with 16 more 
points from the fight.  Major screwup at MAN OR BEAST?.  NEWT ROCKNE lost 10 points 
to CONVICTED ASSASSIN.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe NEWT ROCKNE will provide 
more easy wins...  MAN OR BEAST?'s hatred of VISIONS V2 surfaced again as WALTER 
PIDGEON challenged ZUWAYZA's top dog.  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for MAN OR 
BEAST?'s outstanding member, Duelmaster WALTER PIDGEON.  I suppose you want to hear 
some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  
ZUWAYZA thinks VISIONS V2 and their 67-60-8 is too much!  If at first you don't 
succeed, give up...  In my day, no team with a 64-58-8 would scare me off!  What's 
the problem, MAN OR BEAST??  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged 
warrior, WALTER PIDGEON!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  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.  ZUWAYZA 
is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen
