                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to VEASTIAN once again!  Up 'n down.  Up 'n down.  Rankings always 
change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, THE FAMILY's 2nd moved them up 
to 4-1-0 place.  What's with PRINCE JACKSON?  He actually beat VEASTIAN's KHALHUMS 
DWARF, and walked away with 21 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at THE 
FAMILY.  BITT BETRO lost 15 points to MECHAN.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe 
BITT BETRO will provide more easy wins...  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for 
LUROCIAN ROYALTY's outstanding member, Duelmaster PRINCESS EMILY.  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.  How 
well I know the feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of 
practive, THE FAMILY!  In my day, no team with a 666-729-16 would scare me off!  
What's the problem, PUD POWER?   
     Warriors of VEASTIAN 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!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  Are 
you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Prince Connor -- Heck.  I was hoping for a win.  The way things are looking, Jorja
might actually let this team evaporate, and both of us losing, well, why would she
keep us going, bring us new recruits to support our efforts?  Retirement from the
arena is a grim business, but I foresee it. -- Bitt Betro
