                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in JHANS since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen adapts 
to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Biff!  Pow!  JHANS watched with 
glee as THE FALLEN got knocked off top spot by HELTER SKELTER!  Hmmmph!  I always 
thought ERRATA was an over-rated team and they proved it with a 0-0-0!  Ya gotta be 
quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the pain!  
HELTER SKELTER is now ranked 1st with a 4-1-0 turn.  What's with OTIS THE CAT?  It 
actually beat DYNASTY WARRIORS' CAO CAO, and walked away with 24 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at DYNASTY WARRIORS.  CAO CAO lost 19 points to OTIS THE CAT.  
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe CAO CAO will provide more easy wins...  
Apparently JHANS isn't filled with as many gutless wonders as I thought.  The Dreaded 
Duelmaster got 4 challenges this turn!  FRANKENSLOSH was reminded on the sands why 
NIKITA is Duelmaster.  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.  The most avoided team was 
PORTAL.  The bums at HELTER SKELTER couldn't face the challenges from PORTAL!  No 
excuse for that!   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Some people are wondering why BABES sent MURIEL (3-0-0) to the 
Dark Arena.  Just be glad you're not on their team.  Is it my imagination, or are 
fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
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.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now. 
Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen
