                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to ROCANIS once again!  What's with TAMOON?  She actually beat 
STRAIGHT UP THUG's LOVEABLE LARRY, and walked away with 12 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at MEN OF STEEL while they watched NICHOLAS clobber SERGEANT 
2.  He lost 6 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Try as she 
might, DROXINE wasn't good enough at persuading GASTON IPPS to step down from the 
Duelmaster's throne...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about 
your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was 
MEDAL OF HONOR A11.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at TREXTRAS ain't 
reelin'!  MEDAL OF HONOR A11's mad!  What do people see in FERRIA HOUGH?  Hers 
17-24-1?  MIDDLE WAY 20 ain't talkin', but she's got 76 points.  I hate going to the 
effort of writing about the kind of fights that SFC 1 gets in.  He fights people like 
FERRIA HOUGH, 9 points below.  I thought SFC 1 showed great skill and promise when he 
defeated FERRIA HOUGH.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     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.   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  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

Amazing!  We go one-four, not for the first time, and *I* get the win, the title, the
Chartered Recognition Leader, the Popularity Leader... the old duelmaster's bar
tab....  Wait!  He promised WHAT?  Listen, that was Backlash, not ME!  I can't
possibly--  No, really, I CAN'T!  (sounds of thumping and yelling as Gaston Ipps is
dragged off to an unknown fate)
