                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to ZENSU once again!  What's with SOLO?  He actually beat ADVENTURE 
TIME 2's CHOOSE GOOSE, and walked away with 20 more points from the fight.  Major 
screwup at RANDOM.  JOKER lost 7 points to TREE TRUNKS.  Some new strategies, 
perhaps?  Maybe JOKER will provide more easy wins...  What a role model for ZENSU's 
young 'uns!  GENERAL 1 becomes Duelmaster, but don't bother to fight no more!  I'm 
sure ZENSU is excited about SOLDIER 1, the new Duelmaster from MEDAL OF HONOR Z1.  
(remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  I suppose you want to hear 
some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  How 
well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, RALPH NEPPEL!  Don't 
make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  RALPH NEPPEL didn't quite know 
what to make of a challenge he received from EARL OF LEMONGRAB of ADVENTURE TIME 2, 
who is 24 points below him.  EARL OF LEMONGRAB perhaps got its just desserts, seeing 
as it won victory over RALPH NEPPEL and ended up with 104 recognition points.   
     Warriors of ZENSU unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Many a warrior has 
met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  ZENSU is 
a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  I don't want to 
overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Late again, and last turn was a bad one:  one-four, with one of the losses being to a
standby!  But I'm graduating, and I just don't care.  I don't even care why we were
too late to get in a personal.  I suppose I could have asked, but when Jorja's tired,
she throws things.  Warhammers for choice.  I don't need that. -- Ebbutt Marsh

Five dead in duels today.  It bodes ill for Zensu.

It SEEMS like everyone but us got standbys today.  We know it wasn't so, not QUITE,
but it sure SEEMS like that.  And we went oh-fer, even with two standbys, and Kalgar
bought a farm.  We never guessed he wanted to turn his hand to farming. -- Ebbutt
Marsh, on his way out
