                                      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.  What's with HOFFA?  He actually 
beat RED DOG GANG's BIG DOG, and walked away with 15 more points from the fight.  
Major screwup at RED DOG GANG.  BIG DOG lost 18 points to HOFFA.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe BIG DOG will provide more easy wins...  ARADI has a 
Duelmaster who doesn't sit back and get lazy.  He Dark Arena Challenged DARK ARENA's 
SEA MONSTER (0-0-0), which should prove (ahem!) interesting.  The crowds were amazed 
this turn, as SEA MONSTER killed the Duelmaster, TICK ... TOCK, leaving UNNAMEABLES 
in mourning.  So now HOFFA gets to be ARADI's Duelmaster.  But what comes around goes 
around.  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     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?  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You 
young rapscallions, take note!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  All work 
and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Well, this PROVES it!  The Ambitious Guard is anti-Dog.  He was SAVAGE with me, and I
didn't do a THING!  Not even to his boots.  But I *will* now.  Ha!  I'll get HIM. --
