                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to STORMCROWE once again!  Welcome to STORMCROWE, KIWI CONNECTION!  
We need more teams who can get a 3-0-0 their first time out!  What's with RIKKU?  She 
actually beat STORMCROWE's KHALHUMS DWARF, and walked away with 17 more points from 
the fight.  Major screwup at SHEWISH BUFFET.  CAER SALAD lost 17 points to GLITRINA.  
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe CAER SALAD will provide more easy wins...  
AURORA MARIE was reminded on the sands why ROSELYN is Duelmaster.  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...   
     Warriors of STORMCROWE unite.  You have only your games to lose!  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.  
STORMCROWE is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  
Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- 
Olaf Modeen
