                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to AMEN-TEI once again!  What's with BOUNCING BEA?  She actually 
beat AMEN-TEI's TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE, and walked away with 20 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at EMPIRE OF THE SUN.  HAYABUSA lost 7 points to KUNG-FU 
MASTER.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe HAYABUSA will provide more easy wins... 
M. CHARDINEE was reminded on the sands why SABURO SAKAI 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.  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, 
places to go...   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
AMEN-TEI is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time for 
my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen
