                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in DAL SHANG since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  It seems so recently 
people were saying SAND DANCERS was washed up, finished.  But 5-0-0 moved them up 0.  
I guess they're washed no more...  What's with CHAEGO SARILDAN?  He actually beat TIL 
DEATH DO US PART's BOBIKA VHETT, and walked away with 16 more points from the fight.  
Laughs were big at SAND DANCERS while they watched CHAEGO SARILDAN clobber BOBIKA 
VHETT.  He lost 15 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Try 
as he might, HELVAN QUICKHAND wasn't good enough at persuading CHIANA to step down 
from the Duelmaster's throne...  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.   
     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.   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  The end 
of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want to 
overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Luisenya

Damned Kung-Fu Masters! -- Chaego Sarildan

Bobika Vhett -- They told me I had to lose to you, "So as not to compromise your
adventure."  I think that's a bunch of bull.  I lost to you because you're meaner
than I am.  But you could make up for it by taking me out to dinner one of these
days. -- Sorrelishe

     There has been a run lately of personals and columns turning up in the wrong
     arenas.  When you email in something, check and make sure you have the correct
     arena number!  It's easy for a finger to slip onto the wrong key.  When the
     receipt comes back, check again to be sure it went where you intended!
     Vigilance is your friend, and mine too. -- the Editor
