                                      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.  Up 'n down.  Up 'n down.  
Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, POSSE's 5th 
moved them up to 2-2-0 place.  WEIRD STUDENTS' walking tall now that they went 5-0-0 
their first time out.  But we know what awaits them soon...  What's with MESSY MATT?  
He actually beat GYPSY WYLD's MAY BLOSSOM, and walked away with 21 more points from 
the fight.  Major screwup at GYPSY WYLD.  MAY BLOSSOM lost 12 points to MESSY MATT.  
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe MAY BLOSSOM will provide more easy wins...  I'm 
sure DAL SHANG is excited about LADY LUCK, the new Duelmaster from POSSE.  
(remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  Advice to fighters with a 1 
will--give up fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  The most avoided team 
was WITCHERS.  In my day, no team with a 16-18-1 would scare me off!  What's the 
problem, GYPSY WYLD?  JACK TRIPPER of LAUGH TRACK LORDS knows how to pick 'em.  He 
challenged KARANZA THE WILD of SAND DANCERS who is up by 21.  Now was this a wise 
move?  JACK TRIPPER perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he was beat by KARANZA 
THE WILD and ended up with 63 recognition points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You 
young rapscallions, take note!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  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.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen
