                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome ZENSU.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have I 
fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Bein' on top is great while 
it lasts, NEUROMANCERS.  But how many friends do you have now?  Hmmmph!  I always 
thought BEYOND THE PALE was an over-rated team and they proved it with a 0-3-0!  
What's with DRIZZT?  He actually beat ZENSU's PERSISTENT BEGGAR, and walked away with 
16 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at ZENSU while they watched M. 
CHARDINEE clobber BLONDE GRENADE.  She lost 15 points and got bruised from objects 
thrown from the stands.  Try as it might, BLADE MASTER wasn't good enough at 
persuading TRIANGLE MAN to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Advice to 
fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  ZENSU thinks NEUROMANCERS 
and their 35-36-6 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  The bums 
at RELIGIOUS HERALD couldn't face the challenges from NEUROMANCERS!  No excuse for 
that!   
     Warriors of ZENSU unite.  You have only your games to lose!  We all knew it had 
to happen sooner or later.  A warrior can't stick around with a 10-7-0, and TRIANGLE 
MAN easily took care of BLADE MASTER.  The ultimate victory is one that results in 
death.  TRIANGLE MAN of knows this.  Will WAR-C-KERS attempt a Bloodfeud?  Many a 
warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
ZENSU is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen
