                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in XOCHITHLAN since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with CHAOS 101?  It 
actually beat PARKLAND's RIVER, and walked away with 10 more points from the fight.  
Major screwup at CHUCK'S PINUPS.  DREW BARRYMORE lost 7 points to WOVERN YANSY.  Some 
new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe DREW BARRYMORE will provide more easy wins...  PEKING 
DUCK was reminded on the sands why ISRAFEL is Duelmaster.  I suppose you want to hear 
some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  The most avoided team 
was DARQUE ANGELS.  The bums at CHAOS WARRIORS couldn't face the challenges from 
DARQUE ANGELS!  No excuse for that!  What do people see in ULRIK VENN?  His 14-22-0?  
THE MIDDLE WAY ain't talkin', but he's got 64 points.   
     Warriors of XOCHITHLAN unite.  You have only your games to lose!  How long have 
I been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  All 
work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

climbing and running*

     Not more fighting, fighting, and fighting?

We salute the tourney participants. -- Jorja and those who walk the Middle Way

An oh-fer turn.  Do we feel the LEAST inclination to go into the details of how we
lost every fight, none of which were against standbys--an injustice right there.  No,
we do not want to go into these details.  So we'll just wish you a hot and humid good
