                                      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.  It seems so recently 
people were saying INCONSISTENT FURY was washed up, finished.  But 5-0-1 moved them 
up 0.  I guess they're washed no more...  What's with HAL'IGGE JOYROC?  He actually 
beat MIDDLE WAY 20's DEBRA FARIN, and walked away with 23 more points from the fight. 
Laughs were big at INCONSISTENT FURY while they watched HAL'IGGE JOYROC clobber DEBRA 
FARIN.  She lost 12 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  What 
a role model for ROCANIS' young 'uns!  BACK becomes Duelmaster, but don't bother to 
fight no more!  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for INCONSISTENT FURY's 
outstanding member, Duelmaster HAL'IGGE JOYROC.  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.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, 
places to go...   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
ROCANIS 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

Erbin was glad not to have to do "a few words from the top" ever again, and so am I!
-- Debra Farin

Back -- Nope, not gonna. -- Erbin Goetz
P.S.  Unless you count getting "back" to a quiet life.

Smash -- Ah, when the arenamaster said your name, I thought he was giving me advice,
and it seemed like a good plan to take the advice of an arenamaster, so I did. --
Debra Farin

Wop! -- Weird.  I don't see how a victory can be "narrow" if it takes seven minutes.
I'd call it... exhausting. -- Forlis Hooler
P.S.  When you look at it, we were BOTH exhausted.

Trocaran Deserter?  Bah.  Have you ever tried to eat a Trocaran Truffle?  Horrid
things. -- Chebob Erle
