                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome VEASTIAN.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with TORN 
CLOTH?  She actually beat THE FAMILY's KENSELJO, and walked away with 31 more points 
from the fight.  Major screwup at THE FAMILY.  KENSELJO lost 27 points to TORN CLOTH. 
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe KENSELJO will provide more easy wins...  Try as 
she might, VAISTINIE wasn't good enough at persuading VILE HENCHMAN to step down from 
the Duelmaster's throne...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip 
about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.   
     Warriors of VEASTIAN unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Here's some 
advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     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
