                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome ZORPUNT.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Woof!  WRESTLING were a 
bunch of dogs after BASH BROS. BOSS got through with 'em!  3rd ain't so sweet as 1st! 
What's with WWC?  She actually beat KRILL CAVALRY's DONNY POOLE, and walked away with 
16 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at KRILL CAVALRY while they watched 
JOBERT DONNER clobber DOES NOTHING.  He lost 7 points and got bruised from objects 
thrown from the stands.  KHALHUMS DWARF was reminded on the sands why OLYMPIC is 
Duelmaster.  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some 
team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  ZORPUNT thinks KRILL CAVALRY 
and their 874-905-26 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at BASH BROS. BOSS ain't reelin'!  KRILL 
CAVALRY's mad!  Keep challenging up 32 points, THROWS AWAY MONEY, and I won't have to 
write about you much longer.  TARANA STONE always accepts those kind of challenges... 
Sometimes what you expect to do (like in the fights) doesn't expect to turn out like 
you thought.  THROWS AWAY MONEY defeated TARANA STONE.  It don't make sense.  
RINGWORM didn't quite know what to make of a challenge she received from ARE YOU 
DONE, YET? of BASH BROS. BOSS, who is 25 points below her.  ARE YOU DONE, YET? 
perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he subdued RINGWORM and ended up with 89 
recognition points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You 
young rapscallions, take note!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  Are you 
as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen
