                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in COLLUSION COVE since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf 
Modeen adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with IRON 
HYDE?  He actually beat RED DOG GANG's LASSIE, and walked away with 25 more points 
from the fight.  Laughs were big at MEDICAL BIOHAZARD 4 while they watched GREEN 
DISEASE clobber LITTLE BIG DOG.  He lost 12 points and got bruised from objects 
thrown from the stands.  Try as she might, EQUIPOLLENT wasn't good enough at 
persuading RAZOR XXV to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Wouldn't it be 
nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses 
of convicted prisoners.   
     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.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master 
many skills, fight dirty.   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
All work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen
