                                      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 SUICIDE KING?  
He actually beat DELVERS' JURGENHALEN, and walked away with 21 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at WHERE I'VE EATEN while they watched SEE YA clobber 
ROCKSNAIL.  It lost 9 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  I 
can barely restrain my enthusiam for DEALER'S CHOICE's outstanding member, Duelmaster 
NO PAIR.  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.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  KARMIC KUDZU was plum wore out after NO PAIR 
pounded 'im silly in a Bloodfeud.  COLOR ME SUAVE'll have to get a little better 
before going after NO PAIR again!  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master 
many skills, fight dirty.   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  The 
end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen
