                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
RODEKI.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Say 
good-bye to DELVERS, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the 
DEALER'S CHOICE stable.  Hey everybody, watch out for EARLY OUT, who flew up 18 
points in the rankings after mashing SILVER LADY like a melon.  Keep your eye on this 
gal.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was SILVER LADY, who dropped 7 points 
after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with EARLY OUT.  Going for the gusto 
and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was RODEKI's CONVICTED ASSASSIN, who was 
turned away from the Duelmastership by ROCKSNAIL.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed 
protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the RODEKI arena.  Did you 
hear that DEALER'S CHOICE was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of DEALER'S CHOICE's warriors, I'm not surprised!  For those of you 
who like math, try this one:  DEALER'S CHOICE + Weapons That go Boom = THE SOVEREIGN 
+ Avoid City.  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, JOSEPH GEORGE would be 
president.  Although it may be a contest he doesn't want to win.  In a mismatch, our 
friend LONG-N-SLIM of THE SOVEREIGN got heroic notions and challenged JOSEPH GEORGE.  
What did it get her?  A 9-7-0 record, that's what.  A Carrion Bird Sellout:  
LONG-N-SLIM 9-7-0 fights JOSEPH GEORGE 20-22-1.  (BYOB) In a touching display by a 
'touched' warrior, BLUE SMOKE went after 21, who was higher by 23 points.  Well, when 
the dust settled, BLUE SMOKE was put to death by 21.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  The audience likes blood and there was 
plenty of it covering BLUE SMOKE as she was driven to an early grave by 21 of the 
DEALER'S CHOICE.  Big man!  21 kills BLUE SMOKE.  Who ya gonna fight next, 21--Minnie 
Mouse?  I hope THE SOVEREIGN has a good enough fighter to beat the snot out of 21.  
Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh? 
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Okay, so I may not be the world's best comedian, 
but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  See ya next time I'm on this 
circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Four-one?  This is very strange.  And then to be losing Rocksnail, who has been
invaluable in sniffing out ores.  He will be sorely missed. -- Harby
