                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome SNOWBOUND.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Bein' on top is great 
while it lasts, LIFE IMPACTS.  But how many friends do you have now?  Ya gotta be 
quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the pain!  
OPEN SESAME is now ranked 1st with a 4-1-0 turn.  What's with QUALITY?  It actually 
beat PUBLIC ENEMY's NEFARA, and walked away with 13 more points from the fight.  
Major screwup at OPEN SESAME.  REMARKABLE WORD lost 11 points to GARUTH HOLM.  Some 
new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe REMARKABLE WORD will provide more easy wins...  Try 
as he might, MISSING TEETH wasn't good enough at persuading C IS FOR COOKIE to step 
down from the Duelmaster's throne...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and 
dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  
SNOWBOUND thinks LIFE IMPACTS and their 324-127-6 is too much!  If at first you don't 
succeed, give up...  In my day, no team with a 322-125-6 would scare me off!  What's 
the problem, OPEN SESAME?  What do people see in NEFARA?  Hers 8-7-1?  PUBLIC ENEMY 
ain't talkin', but she's got 68 points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, 
fight dirty.   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
SNOWBOUND is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time for 
my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen
