                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of VEASTIAN!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with TIRRAJ?  He actually 
beat VEASTIAN's KHALHUMS DWARF, and walked away with 22 more points from the fight.  
Major screwup at THE FAMILY.  GRINIAN lost 9 points to ETHON EL KEER.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe GRINIAN will provide more easy wins...  What a role model 
for VEASTIAN's young 'uns!  DART becomes Duelmaster, but don't bother to fight no 
more!  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for TERMAGANT VOTARY's outstanding member, 
Duelmaster DAPHNE CAMISADO.  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice 
on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...   
     Warriors of VEASTIAN unite.  You have only your games to lose!  How long have I 
been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
VEASTIAN is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  
Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- 
Olaf Modeen

Snohbal -- Getting to be that time of year, all right.  Good fight. -- Stiljanz
P.S.  Hey, it WAS.  We both survived and learned something.  That qualifies it as a
good fight.

Dart -- It's a relief to me!  Now YOU are the one who gets the accusing looks if
there's no column. -- Tiranian

I beat a Fratsfa Slave, this is wonderful.  I am so proud of myself, I could almost
wake up to notice it. -- Tirraj

I never wanted an orc.  Why would I try to capture one?  Why would anyone try to
capture an orc?  What are they good for? -- Grinian

Unecasary Rufness -- I'll say! -- Konjor
P.S.  Yours is a hard name to spell.
