                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in MURSKA since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Woof!  PHILANTHROPISTS 3 
were a bunch of dogs after FLIPPERS ARCADE got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so sweet 
as 1st!  FLIPPERS ARCADE showed MURSKA what they were made of as they fought with a 
vengeance to walk off with 4-1-0.  What's with BUMP 'N' JUMP?  He actually beat 
MURSKA's AMBITIOUS GUARD, and walked away with 17 more points from the fight.  Laughs 
were big at CHILDREN OF LLYR while they watched DALLOW clobber GARTH THE SEAMITE.  He 
lost 9 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Try as he might, 
MOZART wasn't good enough at persuading RAZZLE DAZZLE to step down from the 
Duelmaster's throne...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  MURSKA thinks FLIPPERS 
ARCADE and their 27-30-1 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  In 
my day, no team with a 23-29-1 would scare me off!  What's the problem, 
PHILANTHROPISTS 3?  What do people see in DALLOW?  His 12-14-1?  CHILDREN OF LLYR 
ain't talkin', but he's got 58 points.  Maybe PHILANTHROPISTS 3's LOCO is one of 
those guys who likes pain, or something.  That's what he'll get next week, after 
challenging up 32 to O'MALLEY.  Who knows what was running through LOCO's head, but 
O'MALLEY rearranged it for him.  How soon will LOCO make a challenge like that again? 
I hate going to the effort of writing about the kind of fights that PARALLEL UNIVERSE 
gets in.  He fights people like PADDY, 9 points below.  I thought PARALLEL UNIVERSE 
showed great skill and promise when he beat PADDY.  All right, so I slept through it! 
Big deal!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting 
younger every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  The end 
of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want to 
overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen
