                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome ARADI.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have I 
fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with ALLAWALLA?  He 
actually beat I'M WITH STUPID's SHARP STICK, and walked away with 19 more points from 
the fight.  Laughs were big at UNNAMEABLES while they watched ALLAWALLA clobber SHARP 
STICK.  It lost 16 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  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.  SEA MONSTER was 
reminded on the sands why CLARENCE G. CRAFT is Duelmaster.  I suppose you want to 
hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was 
UNNAMEABLES.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at THE ELITE ain't reelin'!  
UNNAMEABLES' mad!   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Hmm...  More surprises must remain in store for me, if 
CLARENCE G. CRAFT can return from the Dark Arena.  Sending a warrior to the Dark 
Arena reminds the others they'd better shape up.  Tough beans, SERGEANT 6.  That's 
what a 12-7-0 gets you.  Some people in ARADI think MEDAL OF HONOR B11 was too harsh 
when they sent SERGEANT 6 (12-7-0) to the Dark Arena.  Them's the breaks, I say.  Is 
MEDAL OF HONOR B11 getting weak?  What sort of warriors let a comrade fall without 
getting revenge?  Times have changed...  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.  Are you 
as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen
