                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to JADE MOUNTAIN once again!  Woof!  SAND DANCERS were a bunch of 
dogs after RUNEBLADES got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so sweet as 1st!  What's with 
MAORI?  He actually beat FALSE OVERTURES' STARR, and walked away with 18 more points 
from the fight.  Laughs were big at RUNEBLADES while they watched MAORI clobber 
STARR.  She lost 15 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Try 
as he might, KOGAN DJIAN wasn't good enough at persuading STREGOICA to step down from 
the Duelmaster's throne...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     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.  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!  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen
