                                      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.  Up 'n down.  Up 'n down.  
Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, FAMOUS HURLERS' 
3rd moved them up to 3-0-1 place.  What's with MARTINE?  She actually beat TOLBIN'S 
X-MEN's XERYUS, and walked away with 20 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big 
at THE FAMILY while they watched MARTINE clobber XERYUS.  He lost 6 points and got 
bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for 
BATTLE FROGS 12-15's outstanding member, Duelmaster SHADOW FROGGY.  I suppose you 
want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was 
BATTLE FROGS 12-15.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at FAMOUS HURLERS ain't 
reelin'!  BATTLE FROGS 12-15'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.  Maybe FAMOUS HURLERS' THE BIG UNIT is one of those guys who likes pain, 
or something.  That's what he'll get next week, after challenging up 27 to LOLITA 
MARIA.  THE BIG UNIT overcame LOLITA MARIA (THE BIG UNIT getting 22 points, 
too!)--Ooh baby!  Now dat I likes!   
     Warriors of VEASTIAN unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Hmm...  More 
surprises must remain in store for me, if CYCLONE can return from the Dark Arena.  
How long have I been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
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
