                                      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.  Biff!  Pow!  ROCANIS 
watched with glee as INCONSISTENT FURY got knocked off top spot by ON THE ROCKS!  
What's with RUBY?  She actually beat MIDDLE WAY 20's DEBRA FARIN, and walked away 
with 27 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at MIDDLE WAY 20.  DEBRA FARIN 
lost 11 points to RUBY.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe DEBRA FARIN will 
provide more easy wins...  What a role model for ROCANIS' young 'uns!  RYVAS 
VOLKMAURI becomes Duelmaster, but don't bother to fight no more!  I'm sure ROCANIS is 
excited about ABELINDA CHASE, the new Duelmaster from MIDDLE WAY 20.  (remember?)  
But when you've seen as many as I have...  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects 
to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  The most avoided team 
was INCONSISTENT FURY.  The bums at ON THE ROCKS couldn't face the challenges from 
INCONSISTENT FURY!  No excuse for that!  What do people see in FORLIS HOOLER?  His 
7-5-0?  MIDDLE WAY 20 ain't talkin', but he's got 32 points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master 
many skills, fight dirty.   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  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

All -- Thanks for the welcomes!  Just to be fair, I thought I'd share my warriors'
tourney experience.  Opal has 10 tourney fights, Ruby has 12, and Agate has 3. --
Bartender, mgr On the Rocks

Crash -- I thought I had you there but you proved me wrong.  Well fought and
challenged! -- Ruby

Nickoli Drybone -- Ruby said you'd be a piece of cake but, man, was he wrong. -- Opal

Ryvas Volkmauri -- I've no objection to helping you stay on top and moving you closer
to graduation.  Beats having to write a column myself!  But how about buying me
dinner tonight, hmm? -- Abelinda Chase

Modreft Megleen -- You've certainly gotten a grip on your job these days.  I dunno if
I quite like it.  What's going to happen to my winning record if this keeps up? --
Erbin Goetz

I have never, ever felt warm and fuzzy about rabid gophers, and I wish they'd let me
kill this one. -- Debra Farin

Dixie Doo -- I don't see any inconsistency in THAT fury.  If my manager had named me
that, I'd be BEYOND furious. -- Forlis Hooler

Smash -- What the heck?  When the announcer said your name, I thought he was offering
me a DRINK.  That's what they're all the time drinking over at Bonsur.  Instead, you
HIT me.  More than once.  Ouch. -- Gilpar Ibbins, now really in need of a drink

Ryvas -- Yep.  I'm just not into that kind of thing. -- Abelinda
P.S.  But we might try this "smash" Gilpar was talking about.  It seems to be some
kind of fermented fruit drink.  Full of vitamins and stuff.

                                  LAST WEEK'S FIGHTS
