                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome RODEKI.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with URCHIN?  He 
actually beat DELVERS' FAROMAN, and walked away with 21 more points from the fight.  
Major screwup at I CAN'T BRUSH YOU.  TOOTHBRUSH lost 8 points to FLIMSY KNICKERS.  
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe TOOTHBRUSH will provide more easy wins...  Try 
as he might, EACHAM wasn't good enough at persuading STICKY FINGERS 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.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.   
     Warriors of RODEKI unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Here's some 
advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
The end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Remember--a 
good fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen
