                                      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 STONEFALL?  She actually 
beat JADE MOUNTAIN's LIGHTFINGER LU, and walked away with 13 more points from the 
fight.  I'm sure JADE MOUNTAIN is excited about DESTRUCTIVE ENERGY, the new 
Duelmaster from CRITICALS.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  
Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is 
looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  STONE HAMMER was plum wore out after LOCUTUS 
pounded 'im silly in a Bloodfeud.  SAND DANCERS'll have to get a little better before 
going after LOCUTUS again!  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.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Our congratulations to Rage. -- Jorja and the Sand Dancers
P.S.  Except for killing Ko-Hain.  He was no godling, but he was reliable.  We'll
miss him around the guildhouse, he really had a way with plumbing.

Locutus -- Why didn't you learn anything?  I teach well! -- Jade Lotus

Rage -- Bummer. -- Ghost of Ko-Hain

Ghost of Thorn -- What the heck?  I *suppose* we could call it backhanded payback for
Ko-Hain, but still, isn't like this arena has warriors to SPARE. -- Stone Hammer the
moderately remorseful

The Happy F -- Oh, WELL, if YOU are happy, who am I to complain? -- Han Kang the
Unhappy

Code Thirteen -- If my name had been recorded correctly, and let me tell you that I
checked the form and it was NOT bad handwriting, things might have gone differently.
-- Meadowlark
