                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to JADE MOUNTAIN once again!  What's with SNAPE?  He actually beat 
SAND DANCERS' JANDINA, and walked away with 18 more points from the fight.  Major 
screwup at SAND DANCERS.  JANDINA lost 8 points to SNAPE.  Some new strategies, 
perhaps?  Maybe JANDINA will provide more easy wins...  KASTENMAR was reminded on the 
sands why WATERLOO is Duelmaster.  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up 
fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  The 
most avoided team was MASTERS OF SIN.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at 
PARTY ANIMALS ain't reelin'!  MASTERS OF SIN's mad!  What do people see in JANDINA?  
Hers 9-9-0?  SAND DANCERS ain't talkin', but she's got 41 points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You 
young rapscallions, take note!   
     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

Waterloo -- Graduate already!  Huh, somehow it seems like a LOT longer than eight
months or so that you've been here.  Maybe you could take early graduation?
Regardless of what one might say about small arenas, you have shown well here.  It
may be that your record is exaggerated, but it isn't a lie. -- Mondekker

Queen -- We don't really "do" queens here much. -- Kastenmar

Downer -- Oh, it was, believe me! -- Lensi Tu

A win against a standby is still a win.  I'll take it. -- Jandina

The Bartender -- I do not understand your function.  The bar looks stable and not in
need of tending.  Further, it seems unlikely that you will be able to see over it. --
