                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to ARADI once again!  What's with BEERBARIAN?  He actually beat RED 
DOG GANG's BIG DOG, and walked away with 24 more points from the fight.  Major 
screwup at RED DOG GANG.  DAISY DAWG lost 8 points to 99% STUPID.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe DAISY DAWG will provide more easy wins...  Apparently 
ARADI isn't filled with as many gutless wonders as I thought.  The Dreaded Duelmaster 
got 2 challenges this turn!  Another fighter (PRIME MINISTER 14-11-0) challenged 
another Duelmaster (TICK ... TOCK 24-8-0).  Life goes on.  PRIME MINISTER was 
reminded on the sands why TICK ... TOCK is Duelmaster.  Advice to fighters with a 1 
will--give up fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, UNNAMEABLES!  
The bums at INGRATE WHITE NORTH couldn't face the challenges from UNNAMEABLES!  No 
excuse for that!   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You 
young rapscallions, take note!   
     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

Well, heck.  I tried to eat Chopped Rabbit, and I choked on it.  Fenwrist beat a
Hoffa (no trick to that!), and the others fought standbys.  Not much of a week.
Well, except for the hambone.  Jorja had ham instead of turkey, but everyone knows
humans don't eat bones, so... we got it.  Okay, Spot sneaked up and grabbed it off
the kitchen counter.  Not bad. -- Kotter
