                                      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.  Woof!  HELTER SKELTER were a 
bunch of dogs after ACT OF MALICE got through with 'em!  1st ain't so sweet as 2nd!  
Hmmmph!  I always thought AARDVARK HAMMERZ was an over-rated team and they proved it 
with a 0-0-0!  What's with RIREMA?  He actually beat ERRATA's ALLIS, and walked away 
with 23 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at ERRATA.  PALADIN lost 11 points 
to SPEKTER.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe PALADIN will provide more easy 
wins...  What a role model for JHANS' young 'uns!  I.B. KLONIN becomes Duelmaster, 
but don't bother to fight no more!  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for OLD SCHOOL 
TOONS' outstanding member, Duelmaster OTIS THE DRUNK.  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 FALLEN!  In my 
day, no team with a 119-144-8 would scare me off!  What's the problem, THE CLOWNS?  
What do people see in MORNGRIM THORTH?  His 4-5-0?  ACT OF MALICE ain't talkin', but 
he's got 29 points.  Fighting is a better craft than farming, CAO CAO, but you have 
to pay your dues.  Being challenged by MORNGRIM THORTH, 20 points above you, is dues. 
MORNGRIM THORTH bested CAO CAO.  ACT OF MALICE calls this fighting?  In my day...  I 
hate going to the effort of writing about the kind of fights that OTIS THE CAT gets 
in.  It fights people like PANG DE, 10 points below.  I thought OTIS THE CAT showed 
great skill and promise when it was defeated by PANG DE.  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.  THE OBIQUITY MIRE's AZOTH 
QUICKSILVER led a good life before leaving JHANS.  Many would be proud to leave 
behind a 6-4-0.  RIREMA proved too determined for ALLIS.  ALLIS was lucky to go in 
the ring, with 7-4-0 to his credit.  He will be remembered.  HARPO had a sure-fire 
victory when he challenged AZOTH QUICKSILVER, 23 points below him.  Was anyone really 
surprised when AZOTH QUICKSILVER bit it?  How long have I been here?  I got people to 
see, places to go...   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
JHANS is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Remember--a 
good fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen
