                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome TRICORUS.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with BETTIE 
PAGE?  She actually beat DARK HORSEMEN's KLARALLA, and walked away with 12 more 
points from the fight.  Major screwup at WILDCATS.  LEOPARD lost 3 points to SHADOW 
ROSE.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe LEOPARD will provide more easy wins...  
MOONDARK was reminded on the sands why FROG BELLY LINT 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.  The most avoided team was 
SEA DOGS.  The bums at BATTLE FROGS 03-13 couldn't face the challenges from SEA DOGS! 
No excuse for that!   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Some people in TRICORUS think WILDCATS was too harsh when they 
sent LYNX (3-0-1) to the Dark Arena.  Them's the breaks, I say.  Hmm...  More 
surprises must remain in store for me, if GWENDOLINE LAMOUR can return from the Dark 
Arena.  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young 
rapscallions, take note!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
Are you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm 
writing it before you read it.  Oh, well.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now. 
Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Six fights, five of them involving standbys?  It's a wonder the Commission doesn't
close this place down.  Of course, if they do, we're up the creek, Jorja would never
send us to a transfer arena, so we don't want that.  Four-one for us, with me losing
to Frog Belly Lint, a seriously disconcerting encounter.  Frog belly lint?  I can't
even imagine it.  But he's a good fighter, which is what counts. -- Moondark
