                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to LIN TIRIAN once again!  Bein' on top is great while it lasts, J. 
But how many friends do you have now?  What's with ROGAR THORFIN?  He actually beat 
J's THE COUNT, and walked away with 67 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big 
at SAND DANCERS while they watched HARNIE BLACK clobber CJ.  She lost 3 points and 
got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Try as he might, BLACK TOM wasn't 
good enough at persuading SJS to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  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.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover 
stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     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

Cj -- Huh, I bet Shewish Buffet would make me a feta-spinach croisant. -- Black Tom

P.S.  I really appreciated a chance to beat up the Dishonest Judge.  There's too much
of that going around.
