                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome VEASTIAN.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Bein' on top is great 
while it lasts, PHILANTHROPISTS.  But how many friends do you have now?  What's with 
ETHON EL KEER?  He actually beat THE FAMILY's TIRRAJ, and walked away with 20 more 
points from the fight.  Laughs were big at TERMAGANT VOTARY while they watched ETHON 
EL KEER clobber TIRRAJ.  He lost 15 points and got bruised from objects thrown from 
the stands.  Try as he might, TIRANIAN wasn't good enough at persuading DAPHNE 
CAMISADO to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Advice to fighters with a 1 
will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  What 
do people see in TIRRAJ?  His 11-3-0?  THE FAMILY ain't talkin', but he's got 71 
points.   
     Warriors of VEASTIAN unite.  You have only your games to lose!  We all knew it 
had to happen sooner or later.  A warrior can't stick around with a 14-14-0, and 
DAPHNE CAMISADO easily took care of TIRANIAN.  The ultimate victory is one that 
results in death.  DAPHNE CAMISADO of knows this.  Will THE FAMILY attempt a 
Bloodfeud?  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.  
VEASTIAN is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time for 
my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen
