                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome TRICORUS.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Woof!  QUESTIONS were 
a bunch of dogs after DARK HORSEMEN got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so sweet as 1st! 
What's with BLOOD LOSS?  He actually beat DARK HORSEMEN's SALMGEDAN, and walked away 
with 17 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at RAISING R'LYEH while they 
watched BLOOD LOSS clobber SALMGEDAN.  He lost 13 points and got bruised from objects 
thrown from the stands.  Try as he might, WHO wasn't good enough at persuading TACK 
TACK to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  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.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, places to 
go...   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  The end 
of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Remember--a good 
fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen
