                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome TRICORUS.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Biff!  Pow!  TRICORUS 
watched with glee as SERPENTS HOLD 2 got knocked off top spot by VENTURE BROS.!  
What's with MARGANAD?  He actually beat SERPENTS HOLD 2's TACK TACK, and walked away 
with 24 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at SERPENTS HOLD 2.  TACK TACK 
lost 20 points to MARGANAD.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe TACK TACK will 
provide more easy wins...  JUBHAL was reminded on the sands why WHO is Duelmaster.  I 
suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  
Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...   
     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!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  TRICORUS 
is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  I don't want to 
overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen
