                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in ARADI since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen adapts 
to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Woof!  BUGS, SLUGS & THUGS were a 
bunch of dogs after UNNAMEABLES got through with 'em!  3rd ain't so sweet as 1st!  
What's with ANON?  He actually beat RED DOG GANG's KOTTER, and walked away with 14 
more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at ARADI while they watched RUTHLESS 
JAYWALKER clobber ELIN GISSORS.  She lost 7 points and got bruised from objects 
thrown from the stands.  Try as she might, CHIQUITA CHIWAWA wasn't good enough at 
persuading TICK ... TOCK to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  I suppose you 
want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.   
     Warriors of ARADI unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Is it my 
imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so 
gloriously!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
ARADI is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Remember--a 
good fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

would come out that way. -- Chilman Else
P.S.  But at least I don't have to write a column.
