                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of ZENSU!  Once again I've been called out of retirement for 
my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with RESTON?  He actually beat 
ZENSU's PERSISTENT BEGGAR, and walked away with 15 more points from the fight.  
Laughs were big at ZENSU while they watched KUNG-FU MASTER clobber CHUCK ELVIS.  He 
lost 15 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  BELLA DEANE was 
reminded on the sands why HAMILTON 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.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  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.  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.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

15 managers have announced for the Stormcrowe Slaughterhouse!!!!!!  There is still 
time to join and make a name for yourself in one of Alastari's fiercest contests!  I
