                                      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, 
SHEWISH BUFFET.  But how many friends do you have now?  What's with MEZQUINO POLLO?  
He actually beat SAND DANCERS' SALLY SHARPE, and walked away with 32 more points from 
the fight.  Try as he might, KHALHUMS DWARF wasn't good enough at persuading CALEAM 
CHOWDER to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  I suppose you want to hear some 
rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.   
     Warriors of LIN TIRIAN unite.  You have only your games to lose!  SALLY SHARPE, 
with hers forgettable 13-9-1,  was killed by MEZQUINO POLLO in a forgettable match.  
SAND DANCERS didn't seem to mind very much.  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
