                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in JURINE since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with GLACIER?  He 
actually beat SOIL MOVERS' ATHENS, and walked away with 12 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at CLAN GHOST BEARS while they watched GLACIER clobber 
ATHENS.  She lost 8 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  
VETERAN MERCENARY was reminded on the sands why LOCKENLOAD is Duelmaster.  I suppose 
you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master 
many skills, fight dirty.   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  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
