                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome SOLVEN.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Biff!  Pow!  SOLVEN watched 
with glee as KELLUMBO'S KIDS got knocked off top spot by SERPENTS HOLD!  What's with 
KOBAYASHI?  He actually beat SOLVEN's HAPPY PEASANT, and walked away with 13 more 
points from the fight.  Major screwup at MIDDLE WAY 15.  GORLON INTHUR lost 4 points 
to HETFIELD.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe GORLON INTHUR will provide more 
easy wins...  What a role model for SOLVEN's young 'uns!  HATE MY LIFE becomes 
Duelmaster, but don't bother to fight no more!  I'm sure SOLVEN is excited about 
JILIAN NORMAN, the new Duelmaster from MIDDLE WAY 15.  (remember?)  But when you've 
seen as many as I have...  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  
I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  SOLVEN thinks KELLUMBO'S 
KIDS and their 559-251-21 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at SERPENTS HOLD ain't reelin'!  KELLUMBO'S 
KIDS' mad!   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  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.  
All work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Little Smirk -- Damned punk. -- Chawlie Istta

The Veteran Mercenary can't be all that old to have a bod like that.  He must've
taken early retirement. -- Jilian Norman

The Honesty of that Merchant is debatable.  Either that, or his sanity. -- Eldon Kree

Can I claim that I was stunned by the assertion that you're a dwarf, when you so
obviously are not? -- Gorlon Inthur
