                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of DAYLA KIV!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with E?  It actually beat 
SAND DANCERS' GORBLE, and walked away with 18 more points from the fight.  Laughs 
were big at NUMB-ERS while they watched E clobber GORBLE.  He lost 4 points and got 
bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  PELIS THE OLD was reminded on the sands 
why ALEXANDROS is Duelmaster.  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice 
on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting 
younger every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  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.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Well, I didn't.  Now I'm back to befuddle and frustrate you with my senseless
