                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome ILLIS.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have I 
fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with KING MIDAS?  He 
actually beat ISLANDERS' COCO NUTTAL, and walked away with 9 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at TALL TALES while they watched KING MIDAS clobber COCO 
NUTTAL.  She lost 7 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  JOHN 
WAYNE was reminded on the sands why APPLESEED 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.   
     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...   
     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.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen
