                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome LAPUR.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have I 
fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with SERENA?  She 
actually beat CLAN CROW's PERILOUS QUINN, and walked away with 18 more points from 
the fight.  Laughs were big at SHADOWMIST while they watched SERENA clobber PERILOUS 
QUINN.  She lost 13 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  
DEADLY ASSASSIN was reminded on the sands why CAIRRAIG AMADAN is Duelmaster.  I 
suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  
Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  LAPUR thinks CARDOW 
HUNTERS and their 716-870-15 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at BLACK SAMURAI ain't reelin'!  CARDOW 
HUNTERS' mad!  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, 
RAVAGE!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.   
     Warriors of LAPUR unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Many a warrior has 
met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
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.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- 
Olaf Modeen

wasn't sure I would ever get another win. -- Dancing Cat
