                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome CLIFFHOME.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with ARGONATH?  
He actually beat JINDA-BAN's KORGENDAL FARS, and walked away with 16 more points from 
the fight.  Major screwup at JINDA-BAN.  KORGENDAL FARS lost 13 points to ARGONATH.  
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe KORGENDAL FARS will provide more easy wins...  
LOGRANAL MAUR was reminded on the sands why LION'S MANE is Duelmaster.  Advice to 
fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  The 
most avoided team was BUCKY FELLINI.  The bums at BASH BROS PARK couldn't face the 
challenges from BUCKY FELLINI!  No excuse for that!  How well I know the feeling of 
being the most challenged warrior, BASKERVILLE PIG!  Don't make idle boasts, they may 
come back to haunt you.   
     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!  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Jorja -- The park can be a dangerous place.  Unfortunately for Trokressa Salm, that
lesson was not learned in time to save him.  Next time, I have to say... Stay on the
paths in well traveled areas.  And DO NOT go there in the dark. -- Assur

Our congratulations to Lion's Mane. -- Jorja and Jinda-Ban

Baskerville Pig -- Gives me a lot of pleasure to win that. -- Logranal Maur

circumstances. -- Ghost of Trokressa Salm

Brave New Rodent -- Think of me as a Brave New Rattrap. -- Nilismarin Salm

And two worthless standbys eat sand! -- Korgendal Fars and Norvandarro Kren
