                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome DAYLA KIV.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with SPARTAN 1? 
He actually beat SAND DANCERS' TERREINE TYL TAHL, and walked away with 17 more points 
from the fight.  Major screwup at SAND DANCERS.  HESTI TYL VAREN lost 2 points to 
DANGEROUS BON LOKAR.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe HESTI TYL VAREN will 
provide more easy wins...  Try as she might, MADAME U-TANA wasn't good enough at 
persuading ALEXANDROS to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  I suppose you 
want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.   
     Warriors of DAYLA KIV unite.  You have only your games to lose!  TERREINE TYL 
TAHL of SAND DANCERS didn't know when to quit.  When you've got a 7-5-0, that's a 
good sign.  Now she's dead.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many 
skills, fight dirty.   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
The end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want 
to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen
