                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in TRICORUS since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with ICE CREAM MAN? 
He actually beat AMAZON ELITE's WACHICHU, and walked away with 14 more points from 
the fight.  Major screwup at VAN DUEL.  ATOMIC PUNK lost 6 points to SKALVORD.  Some 
new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe ATOMIC PUNK will provide more easy wins...  MOONDARK 
was reminded on the sands why PUMA is Duelmaster.  Advice to fighters with a 1 
will--give up fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  The most avoided team 
was DARK HORSEMEN.  The bums at AMAZON ELITE couldn't face the challenges from DARK 
HORSEMEN!  No excuse for that!  What do people see in HARGERD?  His 9-8-0?  DARK 
HORSEMEN ain't talkin', but he's got 44 points.   
     Warriors of TRICORUS unite.  You have only your games to lose!  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

Three losses to managed warriors, two wins over standbys.  Why does this not surprise
us?  Oh, well, Jorja admits--she ADMITS it--that if she actually managed US, we'd do
better.  Probably better.  But she says we "shouldn't hold our breaths" for that to
happen.  Damn. -- Moondark for the rest of the Dark Horsemen
