                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to CLIFFHOME once again!  Ya gotta be quick on yer feet!  Keep your 
elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the pain!  BUCKY FELLINI is now ranked 3rd 
with a 3-0-0 turn.  What's with WALKER?  It actually beat JINDA-BAN's KEVSILESSA 
KIRO, and walked away with 22 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at BUCKY 
FELLINI while they watched SURFIN' COW clobber TROKRESSA SALM.  She lost 7 points and 
got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  FAITH was reminded on the sands why 
THE COWS AFOOT 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.  What do people see in 
TROKRESSA SALM?  Hers 9-10-0?  JINDA-BAN ain't talkin', but she's got 37 points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You 
young rapscallions, take note!   
     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.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen
