                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to COLLUSION COVE once again!  Phhbltt!  Too much drinking and too 
little dodging gave SUPERIOR FORCES 1601 a 0-0-0!  I got a good laugh out of it!  
What's with ECFOIMS?  She actually beat TWILIGHT BRIGADE's SHADOWHAMMER, and walked 
away with 17 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at EX OBLIVIONE.  CLOUDGAZER 
lost 20 points to VIRGINAL GIGOLO.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe CLOUDGAZER 
will provide more easy wins...  Try as he might, VIRGINAL GIGOLO wasn't good enough 
at persuading IMOTO-CHAN 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.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  We all knew it had to happen sooner or later.  A warrior can't 
stick around with a 5-5-0, and VLADIMIR YORGA easily took care of ESTRAYA.  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.  The end 
of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Remember--a good 
fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen
