                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome XOCHITHLAN.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with MALICE?  
She actually beat THE MIDDLE WAY's BETTINA CHIM, and walked away with 16 more points 
from the fight.  Major screwup at DINO SORES!.  STEG-O-SORE lost 9 points to ISRAFEL. 
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe STEG-O-SORE will provide more easy wins...  Try 
as she might, QUITA ROSALA wasn't good enough at persuading THE FALLEN ONE to step 
down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to 
practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...   
     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!   
     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.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good 
skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

The Fallen One -- I don't know why Quita thought you were "easy."  You seemed tough
enough to me.  Which is okay, I like tough women. -- Fallon Grimm

Black Guard -- Ah, you humans are so dramatic.  What is it that you find special in
being a BLACK guard, as opposed to, let us say, a RED one or a BLUE one? -- Udarn
Voyl the Curious

Oh, heck.  Lost to a standby!  That's embarrassing.  But, since I have graduated,
ultimately meaningless. -- Quita Rosala
P.S.  Details on request.

Malice -- Yep, it was probably luck, which I don't actually mind.  Luck is good. --
Bettina Chim

Sovereign -- I'm not sure this is the life for me, you know?  Or maybe I'm just not
doing it right yet.  But I wanted to start with a WIN. -- Ulrik Venn
