                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome IAYE.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have I 
fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with SCARECROW?  It 
actually beat LENPROS' LORD WALTON, and walked away with 20 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at LENPROS.  LORD WALTON lost 17 points to SCARECROW.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe LORD WALTON will provide more easy wins...  Apparently 
IAYE isn't filled with as many gutless wonders as I thought.  The Dreaded Duelmaster 
got 4 challenges this turn!  LENPROS' hatred of GAMEHENDGE surfaced again as CHIEF 
TOMTOM challenged IAYE's top dog.  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for LENPROS' 
outstanding member, Duelmaster CHIEF TOMTOM.  Wouldn't it be nice to have live 
subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted 
prisoners.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  The 
most avoided team was CRYSTAL PALACE.  In my day, no team with a 64-69-1 would scare 
me off!  What's the problem, LENPROS?  C-CUP of LOVE LETTERS knows how to pick 'em.  
She challenged ENCHANTED of CRYSTAL PALACE who is up by 24.  Now was this a wise 
move?  C-CUP perhaps got hers just desserts, seeing as she overcame ENCHANTED and 
ended up with 86 recognition points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Sending a warrior to the Dark Arena reminds the 
others they'd better shape up.  Tough beans, BASHER 101.  That's what a 10-13-2 gets 
you.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  All 
work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen
