                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of VEASTIAN!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with XEVEN?  He actually 
beat THE FAMILY's BLACK ZANJO, and walked away with 14 more points from the fight.  
Laughs were big at ORL 2013K while they watched LYRICAL DRUGGIST clobber XERXES.  He 
lost 7 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Try as he might, 
KHARIJANH wasn't good enough at persuading HALFTIME 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.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every 
day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     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

How the fortunes in the arena change!  Last time, we went five-oh, this time we go
two-three.  Is it Olaf Modeen who talks about "up and down"?  He can have it.
Sometimes I wonder if we'll ever get out of here alive.  And I suppose it's a case
of, "Some will, some won't."  So be it.  To those we fought, we say, "Good fight."
Believe that if you want! -- Kharijanh
