                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome ERINIKA.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with ADULTERY?  She 
actually beat MIDDLE WAY 18's ULTOR TAK, and walked away with 18 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at ERINIKA while they watched FRATSFA SLAVE clobber LILAS 
KEELER.  She lost 14 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  I'm 
sure ERINIKA is excited about ROS QUIN, the new Duelmaster from MIDDLE WAY 18.  
(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...   
     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.  All work 
and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Fort Reaper -- Hello, welcome to Erinika.  Sorry about Rendering Reaper.  Are you new
to the great game of Duel 2?  If you are and need or want any help just let me know.
I will do what I can to help. -- the Mun (manager Blackmail)

Death Sucks -- Have I ever argued this seriously?  Do you think I can't remember?
Isn't there anyone else you can deliver your message to? -- Ros Quin

Extortion -- Same to you, bub. -- Salinda Renn

Cheesy Ripper -- Wrong kind of cheese.  You probably need something sharper.  No,
seriously, check the weapon chart.  There are lots of things you could use
effectively.  It might make a difference. -- Ultor Tak

Capt. Jack -- Good back-and-forth fight. -- Lilas Keeler

Diving Reaper -- In this weather?  You'll freeze your feathers off.  You probably
need to work out a strategy for fights that last longer than expected, such as
dropping your numbers in the second minute or something. -- Panama Oats
