                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of SOLVEN!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with MEDAN QUIZZAR?  He 
actually beat ARE YOU ?'s PURPLE HAZE, and walked away with 17 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at ARE YOU ?.  PURPLE HAZE lost 12 points to MEDAN QUIZZAR.  
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe PURPLE HAZE will provide more easy wins...  HOLM 
JOUBERT 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.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting 
younger every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     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.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen
