                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to VEASTIAN once again!  Some people say I ramble too much, I don't 
say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I ramble.  Well THE FAMILY moved up 1, to 
1st.  What's with TALENJ?  He actually beat VEASTIAN's AMBITIOUS GUARD, and walked 
away with 18 more points from the fight.  Try as she might, ELOWAN wasn't good enough 
at persuading PRINCESS EMILY to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Advice to 
fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  VEASTIAN thinks 
PHILANTHROPISTS and their 20-11-3 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give 
up...  Management must be dealin', as the boys at PUD POWER ain't reelin'!  
PHILANTHROPISTS' mad!  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged 
warrior, SENJIRO!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, 
places to go...   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  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.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen
