                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in VEASTIAN since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with XENOS?  He 
actually beat EPIC RAP's HALFTIME, and walked away with 16 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at EPIC RAP.  HALFTIME lost 12 points to XENOS.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe HALFTIME will provide more easy wins...  Try as he might, 
KHARIJANH wasn't good enough at persuading BAIN to step down from the Duelmaster's 
throne...  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some 
team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  VEASTIAN thinks THE 
FAMILY and their 919-972-26 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at ORDER ain't reelin'!  THE FAMILY's mad!  
How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, ZILLA KHIRNAJ!  
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...   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  The 
end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Remember--a good 
fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen
