                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of RODEKI!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with BEER?  He actually beat 
THE SOVEREIGN's IKE NIGHTSHIELD, and walked away with 24 more points from the fight.  
Major screwup at THE SOVEREIGN.  IKE NIGHTSHIELD lost 21 points to BEER.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe IKE NIGHTSHIELD will provide more easy wins...  RODEKI 
has a Duelmaster who doesn't sit back and get lazy.  He challenged DELVERS' ROCKSNAIL 
(20-16-0), which should prove (ahem!) interesting.  I'm sure RODEKI is excited about 
ROCKSNAIL, the new Duelmaster from DELVERS.  (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.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, DELVERS!  In my day, 
no team with a 908-1192-22 would scare me off!  What's the problem, THE SOVEREIGN?  
How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, DOWNER!  Don't make 
idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  Keep challenging up 27 points, PAN, 
and I won't have to write about you much longer.  ANVIL always accepts those kind of 
challenges...  As I expected, ANVIL won PAN.  Not to start anything, but, PAN, now 
that you've faced him and seen hers style, you might try it again!   
     Warriors of RODEKI unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Here's some 
advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  All work 
and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Two-three, could've been better. -- Scorpio

*sniffs air*  I smell a feud between my girl Lady Kale and Coach Boy. *laughs* --
Scorpio

Tim Taylor, I mean Rolayt Mit -- So you pride yourself on one lucky win?  Best 2
outta 3, then you can talk all your mortal trash talk all you want Vagabond!!
*sniffs* -- Lord Marcus Sky
P.S.  Keep that up, and I'll send you to brother Nicholas in Ahringol's home!!

Beer -- I don't prefer berr, more of the age-old Dwarven Stout!!  *smiles*  A very
good preformance you did. *nods head* -- Ike Nightshield

Silver Lady -- Death's knocking at your door, what do you do?  *knocking back 3 shots
of whiskey* -- Jade

Riddle Me This -- I drift forever with the current down these long canals they've
made.  Tame, yet wild, I run elusive, multi-tasking to your aid.  Before I came, the
world was darker, colder, sometimes, rougher, true; but though I might make living
easy, I'm good at liking people too.  What am I?

         Time.

Lord Marcus -- Well fought, though you didn't seem to be quick enough to respond to
my onslaught.  Maybe we'll match up again and you'll have another chance! -- Fey
Briggs
P.S.  Whoever at the commission that thought I was an Orc needs to report to the
Arena Sands!

     We aren't allowed to ask your race, so someone in the home office randomly
     fills in the blanks--it usually makes the warrior or manager volunteer the
     correct race. -- NAIEI

All -- We find it funny that we twins were matched against twins also!  They never
stood a chance against our combined might! -- The Vhai Twins

52 Pick-up -- If I were the Dealer, I'd have made a better choice. -- Nix Blackheart

Erly Out -- It's crazy, right?  I challenged you knowing the style disadvantage I was
at, but I wanted to see where I was at.  Turns out I'm pretty sick.  You nearly lost
to a warrior that your style is almost "designed" to beat.  Good fight, Nix is up
next. -- Rolayt Mix
P.S.  On a nicer note, that fight was sweet.  Seriously, good fight.

Coach -- WHere I currently live on "Early Out" is when you have a pass to somewhere
on the compound so they let you out early to Chow. -- Kale

All -- No stories this turn.  Lots of stuff to do this weekend. -- Kale

21 -- Just call me "professor." -- Joseph George

Scorpio -- That would require too much attention.  Challenges, avoids, strategy
changes.  I don't have time for that stuff.  We're on a really good vein down in the,
um, in a shaft, I won't tell you which one, sorry, proprietary secret.  I have to
stay focused on that. -- Harby
P.S.  I almost offered to do some story-telling here, but I caught myself in time.
Good thing!  Choosing which thing NOT to do so as to free up that time would have
been terrible.

Nix Blackheart -- Nah, it's 'cause I work down in the mine in between fight days.
Gotta eat somehow. -- Downer

Jade -- If you think I'm going to raise my kill desire for you, think again. --
Silver Lady

Two-three this time.  (sigh)  They're better miners than fighters, really. -- Harby

21 -- Ouch?  But... four skills for ME, so I'm not complaining.  Just 
limping. -- Rocksnail

Jade -- And that, kiddo, is with our standard kill desire of five. -- Silver Lady

Blue Smoke -- Sun too hot for you? -- Joseph George

Long -- Huh, I didn't see that one coming.  Well done. -- Anvil

Pan -- I wasn't making a PERSONAL comment, dammit!  Just an observation about your,
um, impressive frontage.  I didn't realize orcs were so touchy about that! -- Downer
