                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome SOLVEN.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Woof!  MIDDLE WAY 15 were a 
bunch of dogs after SERPENTS HOLD got through with 'em!  4th ain't so sweet as 1st!  
What's with COTTONMOUTH?  It actually beat SOLVEN's SHIFTYEYED VOLUNTEER, and walked 
away with 13 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at MIDDLE WAY 15.  HOLM 
JOUBERT lost 10 points to KUNG-FU MASTER.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe HOLM 
JOUBERT will provide more easy wins...  GILLY MANDERSON was reminded on the sands why 
ROMO is Duelmaster.  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, 
fight dirty.   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
SOLVEN 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
