                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome VEASTIAN.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Woof!  WARRIORS OF 
STEEL were a bunch of dogs after IS THAT A CLUE? got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so 
sweet as 1st!  What's with KHARIJANH?  He actually beat VEASTIAN's EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, 
and walked away with 11 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at THE FAMILY.  
BAIBAR lost 4 points to JEREMIAH BROADBLADE.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe 
BAIBAR will provide more easy wins...  Try as he might, JONAS SWITCHBLADE wasn't good 
enough at persuading BOOT PRINT 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...   
     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?  All 
work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen
