                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to SNOWBOUND once again!  What's with PATTY MURPHY?  He actually 
beat MIDDLE WAY 6's NEWLIN OHM, and walked away with 18 more points from the fight.  
Major screwup at MIDDLE WAY 6.  NEWLIN OHM lost 15 points to PATTY MURPHY.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe NEWLIN OHM will provide more easy wins...  Try as he 
might, REMARKABLE WORD wasn't good enough at persuading NEFARA 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 SCISSOR ME TIMBER.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at KILL OR BE KILT 
ain't reelin'!  SCISSOR ME TIMBER's mad!  What do people see in SPECTRA?  Hers 
10-13-0?  PUBLIC ENEMY ain't talkin', but she's got 58 points.  WILLIAM WALLACE of 
KILL OR BE KILT knows how to pick 'em.  He challenged SPECTRA of PUBLIC ENEMY who is 
up by 20.  Now was this a wise move?  WILLIAM WALLACE perhaps got his just desserts, 
seeing as he was beat by SPECTRA and ended up with 26 recognition points.  I hate 
going to the effort of writing about the kind of fights that ROB ROY gets in.  He 
fights people like OLIVER QUEEN, 9 points below.  I thought ROB ROY showed great 
skill and promise when he beat OLIVER QUEEN.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big 
deal!   
     Warriors of SNOWBOUND unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Is LIFE IMPACTS 
getting weak?  What sort of warriors let a comrade fall without getting revenge?  
Times have changed...  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

leave that for the savages. -- Jenna Kuul

Two-three, and a crashing thunderstorm is going on here.  Jorja says if we linger to
write personal personals, they may not get out!  Horrid thought, can't bear it.  So
this is just about it, you know? -- Jenna Kuul

Cantex -- Well... I decided to try the bones-in-my-hair thing, and what do you know?
It MADE me savage!  I would never have expected that. -- Jenna Kuul
