                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of AMEN-TEI!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Up 'n down.  Up 'n down.  Rankings 
always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, EXCLAMATION!'s 2nd moved 
them up to 3-0-0 place.  What's with OMG?  It actually beat NUTS!'s KURRAJONG, and 
walked away with 18 more points from the fight.  CASHEW was reminded on the sands why 
WOW is Duelmaster.  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear 
some team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  
AMEN-TEI thinks EXCLAMATION! and their 65-41-4 is too much!  If at first you don't 
succeed, give up...  In my day, no team with a 62-41-4 would scare me off!  What's 
the problem, NUTS!?   
     Warriors of AMEN-TEI unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Is it my 
imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so 
gloriously!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  All 
work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

I am undertaking a fiction-writing project on the Patreon website, under my own name
of Judith Solberg.  It isn't the kind of story I might put in the newsletter, but I
think some of you might enjoy it.  I don't know how much you can see if you just
cruise by, but they tell me it's up and open. -- Jorja
