                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in ROCANIS since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Woof!  BAD APPLES were a 
bunch of dogs after AVERAGE GUYS got through with 'em!  3rd ain't so sweet as 1st!  
What's with MALUS S'PROUT?  He actually beat KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS' SAGE, and walked 
away with 18 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS.  SAGE 
lost 13 points to MALUS S'PROUT.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe SAGE will 
provide more easy wins...  HAWTHORN was reminded on the sands why CENTURION 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.  ROCANIS thinks KNIGHTS OF 
ROCANIS and their 307-211-17 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  
The bums at AVERAGE GUYS couldn't face the challenges from KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS!  No 
excuse for that!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover 
stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  All 
work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Praetorian -- (groan)  I think I'm too old for this kind of thing.  I shouldn't be
mixing it up with you youngsters. -- Gaffer Smith

Centurion -- Jorja says it's a good thing you got the title from me.  I don't see it,
myself, but she says I'm not nice enough to the unwashed masses of Rocanis.  Why
should I want to be nice to the unwashed masses of Rocanis?  What did they ever do
for me? -- Hawthorn

Hawthorn -- I did not call the fans of the Rocanis arena "unwashed masses."  I happen
to know that some of them bathe. -- Jorja

Sage -- A bad match for you, kid, but hang in there.  It may get better. -- Woodworm

Steve -- Are you sure that's average? -- Malus S'Prout

Tritus -- Hey, I had to drop the limbs somewhere. -- Limbdropper
