                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to CLIFFHOME once again!  What's with RIBEYE RHOMBA?  She actually 
beat CLIFFHOME's THE USEROUS MERCHANT, and walked away with 15 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at DANCES WITH MEAT.  HAMBURGER HO DOWN lost 5 points to HANS.  
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe HAMBURGER HO DOWN will provide more easy wins... 
Try as he might, BENT FENDER wasn't good enough at persuading ZIG to step down from 
the Duelmaster's throne...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip 
about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, 
places to go...   
     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.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Zig -- You have seriously messed up my paint job, you know.  Might as well have gone
after it with an electric sander. -- Bent Fender

Zag -- I don't know what Johnny sees in you. -- Kartikaya

Bertha -- I dunno, you might be too much woman for me. -- Lum Busby

The Useless, I mean Userous, Merchant?  I curl my lip with disdain. -- Jitney Johnny

You'd think the Osksi Pride Boosters would do something about the poor quality of the
so-called Osksi Nobles found in the arenas around Alastari. -- Thea Dozzier
P.S.  Not that I actually mind.  An easy win is an easy win.
