                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome JURINE.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with SAPHAHI VUVUWE? 
He actually beat MIDDLE WAY 16's CHAM DUGAN, and walked away with 4 more points from 
the fight.  Try as he might, XAVAN YOLE wasn't good enough at persuading GAROK to 
step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  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.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Who will dare fight :), after he returned from the Dark Arena? 
(For the record 1-0-1 is 33, and has he points) How long have I been here?  I got 
people to see, places to go...   
     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.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

And a happy Groundfool's Day to you all.

Garok -- Oh, excellent.  I do like a man who knows how to keep the title, because I
most certainly don't want it.  Being the Duelmaster leads to any number of bad
things, such as graduation.  Can't have that. -- Zoe Alden, content to be just
ordinary

It's always a disappointment to draw the Venomous Concubine and realize, all over
again, that he's a guy. -- Xavan Yole

And the Fratsfa Slave isn't Fratsfan, but who cares? -- Takole Urm

Right, and the Dangerous Criminal was not (today) dangerous, either.  So there. --
Torkene Ulm

The Userous Merchant's userous, though.  A mean dude with ink on his fingers. -- Cham
Dugan
