                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to ERINIKA once again!  Phhbltt!  Too much drinking and too little 
dodging gave SUPER STARS a 0-0-0!  I got a good laugh out of it!  Ya gotta be quick 
on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the pain!  MIDDLE 
WAY 18 is now ranked 2nd with a 3-2-0 turn.  What's with L8R?  She actually beat 
ERINIKA's CAPTURED ORC, and walked away with 17 more points from the fight.  Laughs 
were big at ERINIKA while they watched VENEMOUS CONCUBINE clobber SALINDA RENN.  She 
lost 14 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Har har har!  
Did ANASTASIA wimp out, or just get lazy?  Anyway, she's not Duelmaster anymore.  I 
can barely restrain my enthusiam for MIDDLE WAY 18's outstanding member, Duelmaster 
LILAS KEELER.  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.   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  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
