                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome NIATOLI ISLAND.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the 
fights have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with 
COCKY JOCK?  He actually beat DUELMASTERS BUFFET's MR. ANIMAL CRACKERS, and walked 
away with 22 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at DUELMASTERS BUFFET.  MR. 
ANIMAL CRACKERS lost 14 points to COCKY JOCK.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe 
MR. ANIMAL CRACKERS will provide more easy wins...  I can barely restrain my 
enthusiam for OBSIDIAN HALL's outstanding member, Duelmaster BENJYN BLAYDE.  Advice 
to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  The 
most avoided team was BIG LAKE BANDITS.  In my day, no team with a 598-583-57 would 
scare me off!  What's the problem, DEMONSPAWN?  How well I know the feeling of being 
the most challenged warrior, IMMORAL DESIRE!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come 
back to haunt you.  DEN'S FAVORITE of DEMONSPAWN knows how to pick 'em.  He 
challenged WHITE SQUALL of SEA DOGS who is up by 19.  Now was this a wise move?  
DEN'S FAVORITE perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he bested WHITE SQUALL and 
ended up with 85 recognition points.  I hate going to the effort of writing about the 
kind of fights that SUCCUBUS gets in.  She fights people like THE DEBTOR, 8 points 
below.  I thought SUCCUBUS showed great skill and promise when she defeated THE 
DEBTOR.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Death is no stranger to a warrior.  DEMONSPAWN's BROCK led a 
good life before leaving NIATOLI ISLAND.  Many would be proud to leave behind a 
13-7-1.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  The 
end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Remember--a good 
fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen
