                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of TRICORUS!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with NERDS?  He actually 
beat DARK HORSEMEN's TALL BULL, and walked away with 9 more points from the fight.  
Major screwup at VENTURE BROS..  THE CAPTAIN lost 4 points to ATOMIC PUNK.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe THE CAPTAIN will provide more easy wins...  SKALVORD was 
reminded on the sands why HELPER is Duelmaster.  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.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, DARK HORSEMEN!  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at AMAZON ELITE ain't reelin'!  DARK 
HORSEMEN's mad!   
     Warriors of TRICORUS unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Is it my 
imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so 
gloriously!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
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
