                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of DAL SHANG!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with TROLLARM?  He actually 
beat THE MOTHERSHIP CE's BUD SUDS, and walked away with 17 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at DAL SHANG while they watched HELVAN QUICKHAND clobber 
KURLO TEN DOSHAN.  He lost 13 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  MASTER OF THE EDGE was reminded on the sands why LINDIS TYL SARRO is 
Duelmaster.  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, THE MOTHERSHIP CE!  
In my day, no team with a 15-9-1 would scare me off!  What's the problem, BASH BROS 
EVANGELIST?  What do people see in KALDAN TEN KARAN?  His 4-5-0?  SAND DANCERS ain't 
talkin', but he's got 17 points.  Taunt your opponent LIMBER VIKING!  That was my 
lucky charm when I was unfairly challenged.  (and by 25 points!)  DRIVING A ROLLS 
should have an easy win.  DRIVING A ROLLS overcame LIMBER VIKING.  BASH BROS 
EVANGELIST calls this fighting?  In my day...   
     Warriors of DAL SHANG 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?  The 
end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen
