                                      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 FRIED KHALANI?  He 
actually beat SAND DANCERS' JANDINA, and walked away with 10 more points from the 
fight.  Har har har!  Did QUEEN wimp out, or just get lazy?  Anyway, she's not 
Duelmaster anymore.  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for KIWI CONNECTIONS' 
outstanding member, Duelmaster DOWNER.  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to 
practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     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.  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?  
JADE MOUNTAIN is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  I 
don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Ack!  More snacks!  When are we going to get some solid food here? -- the Sand
Dancers, looking for steaks or at least hamburgers

Queen -- I look upon it as... gym work.  Unpleasant gym work. -- Mondekker

Downer -- I'd rather go back to working in the quarries.  It'd be less exhausting. --
Lensi Tu

Brasell -- I dunno what you needed that win for.  You're leaving. -- Kastenmar
P.S.  Have a good trip.

Fried Khalani -- I am told that frying "reduces the vitality," but also that it
"improves the flavor."  This appears to be a contradiction, but I am able to rise
above apparent contradictions.  Your name represents a typically human desire to
savor the weakness of others.  The fact that golems do not do this unless
specifically so programmed does not mean I cannot see it. -- Green Rock

Balisong -- You get a win, five skills, a MASTER rating, and what do *I* get?
Bruises.  I know life isn't fair, but couldn't it be unfair in my favor? -- Jandina
