                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome STORMCROWE.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Some people say I 
ramble too much, I don't say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I ramble.  Well 
SHEWISH BUFFET moved up 2, to 3rd.  What's with ERMINE?  She actually beat SHEWISH 
BUFFET's RODEKI MARSALA, and walked away with 20 more points from the fight.  Major 
screwup at SHEWISH BUFFET.  RODEKI MARSALA lost 9 points to ERMINE.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe RODEKI MARSALA will provide more easy wins...  Try as he 
might, M. CHARDINEE wasn't good enough at persuading ANDROMEDA to step down from the 
Duelmaster's throne...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about 
your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  The most avoided team 
was STREET WALKERS.  In my day, no team with a 83-29-6 would scare me off!  What's 
the problem, DARQUE FORCES?  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged 
warrior, AURORA MARIE!  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.  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover 
stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  The end 
of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen
