     Thank the gods!  Amen!  I have done it!  Those final PPs are in hand and I am on
my way to that Big Monastery on The Isle.  I shall pray for all Ardiventians for the
rest of my earthly life.  You have all been a blessing.
     I shall summarize for you, in my final sermon, my life's body of work.  May you
all enjoy it and learn some life lessons from it.

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to ARDIVENT once again!  What's with MARCI FOOTE?  She actually 
beat FANDILS' SHELLEY ANN, and walked away with 12 more points from the fight.  Major 
screwup at FANDILS.  SHELLEY ANN lost 8 points to MARCI FOOTE.  Some new strategies, 
perhaps?  Maybe SHELLEY ANN will provide more easy wins...  I'm sure ARDIVENT is 
excited about LILA DEANE, the new Duelmaster from BLUVALLEY WARRIORS.  (remember?)  
But when you've seen as many as I have...  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.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, BLUVALLEY WARRIORS!  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at FANDILS ain't reelin'!  BLUVALLEY 
WARRIORS' mad!  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, 
JOUBERT KLEE!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  JOUBERT KLEE 
didn't quite know what to make of a challenge he received from SNUFFY of FANDILS, who 
is 22 points below him.  SNUFFY perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he was 
overcame by JOUBERT KLEE and ended up with 5 recognition points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You 
young rapscallions, take note!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
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
