                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in DRAGONHEAD since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Ya gotta be quick on yer 
feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the pain!  ANCIENT KNIGHTS 
is now ranked 5th with a 2-0-0 turn.  What's with BLIZZARD?  He actually beat ONE MAN 
BAND's STUMP FIDDLE, and walked away with 22 more points from the fight.  Major 
screwup at ONE MAN BAND.  STUMP FIDDLE lost 10 points to BLIZZARD.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe STUMP FIDDLE will provide more easy wins...  What a role 
model for DRAGONHEAD's young 'uns!  DRUWEZ becomes Duelmaster, but don't bother to 
fight no more!  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for ANCIENT KNIGHTS' outstanding 
member, Duelmaster EAGLE KEYS.  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty 
gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  DRAGONHEAD thinks MEAT 
YOUR MAKER and their 53-25-4 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  
In my day, no team with a 53-25-4 would scare me off!  What's the problem, ARTIC 
FIRE?   
     Warriors of DRAGONHEAD unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Here's some 
advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     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!  I don't want to 
overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen
