                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of ARADI!  Once again I've been called out of retirement for 
my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Up 'n down.  Up 'n down.  Rankings 
always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, RESCUE RANGERS' 2nd moved 
them up to 4-0-0 place.  Try as he might, NOBLE ASSASSIN wasn't good enough at 
persuading CATIPILLAR 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...  ARADI thinks SUPERIOR 
FORCES 60 and their 4-1-0 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at RESCUE RANGERS ain't reelin'!  SUPERIOR 
FORCES 60's mad!  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, 
CHIQUITA CHIWAWA!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  DONALD 
of RESCUE RANGERS knows how to pick 'em.  It challenged HORNET of BUGS, SLUGS & THUGS 
who is up by 22.  Now was this a wise move?  DONALD perhaps got its just desserts, 
seeing as it bested HORNET and ended up with 56 recognition points.   
     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...   
     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!  I don't want to 
overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen
