                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of CHIMLEVTAL!  Once again I've been called out of 
retirement for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with KOLUM MAROD? 
He actually beat NUMBERS GAME's SLATE G35, and walked away with 19 more points from 
the fight.  What a role model for CHIMLEVTAL's young 'uns!  ULL BLOODSTORM becomes 
Duelmaster, but don't bother to fight no more!  I'm sure CHIMLEVTAL is excited about 
EXECUTIONER, the new Duelmaster from RETRIBUTION.  (remember?)  But when you've seen 
as many as I have...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about 
your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, THE STORMBRINGERS!  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at CAESAR'S POOL HALL ain't reelin'!  THE 
STORMBRINGERS' mad!  What do people see in SINGALEK?  His 12-8-1?  THE KINDRED ain't 
talkin', but he's got 70 points.  I hate going to the effort of writing about the 
kind of fights that ULL HELMSPLITTER gets in.  He fights people like CRASSUS, 10 
points below.  I thought ULL HELMSPLITTER showed great skill and promise when he was 
subdued by CRASSUS.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Warriors of CHIMLEVTAL unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Here's some 
advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  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
