                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in RODEKI since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with TALIB KWELI?  
He actually beat RODEKI's KUNG-FU MASTER, and walked away with 15 more points from 
the fight.  Major screwup at INTELLECTS OF HIPHOP.  TRUGOY THE DOVE lost 5 points to 
ELIFAS KENT.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe TRUGOY THE DOVE will provide more 
easy wins...  KARLIGRENA was reminded on the sands why SOCKLESS CRITIC is Duelmaster. 
Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is 
looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.   
     Warriors of RODEKI unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Is it my 
imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so 
gloriously!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
All work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Mab -- Of course I "bested" you.  You're a freak!  A six-foot-four-inch dwarf?  More
like a walking haystack. -- Igrina Sockinette
P.S.  Us orcs don't waste our time with tact.

Slash -- And slice and dice, too.  Ouch. -- Jurgenhalen

C-Pappy -- I like to see pappy lose. -- Karligrena
P.S.  I'm sure you could do it more gracefully than I do.  Although screaming and
carrying on in the Infirmary is not my idea of graceful.

Pasdanous -- You hopped and hipped all over the place, and I had a hangover to begin
with.  Ugh. -- Isengalen

Talib Kweli -- That just makes my day, totally.  I think I'll go eat worms. -- Elifas
