                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of ROCANIS!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with LIMBDROPPER?  He 
actually beat ROCANIS' CULT MEMBER, and walked away with 11 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS.  SIR MAC lost 7 points to WOODWORM.  
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe SIR MAC will provide more easy wins...  HAWTHORN 
was reminded on the sands why CENTURION is Duelmaster.  Advice to fighters with a 1 
will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every 
day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
ROCANIS is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  
Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- 
Olaf Modeen
