                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to NIATOLI ISLAND once again!  Bein' on top is great while it 
lasts, OBSIDIAN HALL.  But how many friends do you have now?  BIG LAKE BANDITS showed 
NIATOLI ISLAND what they were made of as they fought with a vengeance to walk off 
with 4-1-0.  What's with GRUNGE BEAR?  He actually beat XXX BANDITS' WAR PIG, and 
walked away with 20 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at HALLOWIENERS 
while they watched GHOUL GOBLIN clobber IMMORAL DESIRE.  He lost 6 points and got 
bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Try as he might, BENJYN BLAYDE wasn't 
good enough at persuading SSSINK! to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  
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.  How 
well I know the feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of 
practive, DEMONSPAWN!  Management must be dealin', as the boys at BIG LAKE BANDITS 
ain't reelin'!  DEMONSPAWN's mad!  How well I know the feeling of being the most 
challenged warrior, BIFFCAKE!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt 
you.  Taunt your opponent THE HAND COLLECTOR!  That was my lucky charm when I was 
unfairly challenged.  (and by 16 points!)  PAPA BEAR CLAWS should have an easy win.  
PAPA BEAR CLAWS' gonna be practicin' hard this week, after THE HAND COLLECTOR, lower 
ranked by far, mashed him!   
     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, BEDAZZLER.  That's what a 6-9-0 gets 
you.  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.  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.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen
