                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  RODEKI needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for FOUR OF 
SPADES?  COLOR ME SUAVE's proud of him after beating CONVICTED THIEF and getting 13 
points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  LA CHISELLE's match with RED SKELTON cost her 
a loss of 3 points!  Like DARK ARENA's STONE GOLEM is sweating since he got Dark 
Arena Challenged by Duelmaster THIRD BASE SPOCK!  The crowds were amazed this turn, 
as STONE GOLEM killed the Duelmaster, THIRD BASE SPOCK, leaving COLOR ME SUAVE in 
mourning.  OSTMAN gets to be new Duelmaster.  But doesn't this mean people might try 
to kill him, too?  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  
Don't ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  The warriors of COLOR ME SUAVE 
must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something 
that I don't?  I don't know what HIGHER PURPOSE's been doing.  They certainly haven't 
been accepting many fights from COLOR ME SUAVE, that's fer sher.  Like, is ARERIS 
popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of RODEKI!  He's got a 7-4-0, is 
that good?  Speaking of challenging 27 points above did you hear about FRANKENBUTT of 
COLOR ME SUAVE vs. WAY OF THE SWORD A3's OSTMAN?  (And how was that intro!) OSTMAN 
won victory over FRANKENBUTT, and was I surprised (right!).  But its a good thing 
OSTMAN could stop laughing long enough to give FRANKENBUTT a good pounding.  I'm not 
so sure KANGAROO LIFEBOAT knew all the facts when he  challenged ARERIS of WAY OF THE 
SWORD A3.  I saw KANGAROO LIFEBOAT stumbling and dribbling at The Swinging Aardvark 
last week...  KANGAROO LIFEBOAT was so studly out there in the sands!  Beating ARERIS 
and getting 28 points.  COLOR ME SUAVE must be proud, for sure!   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All RODEKI ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear 
from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  RODEKI is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  Its 
been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Bob the Impaler -- Was that a nice thing to do? -- Handsome Does
P.S.  You can't go treating everybody like shishkebabs.

Red Skelton -- Maybe you should try blue or green sometimes? -- The Mole

The Ambitious Guard stepped out on the sands wearing a tee shirt that said Bashers R
Us.  Has Assur been coaching him? -- La Chiselle

Layla -- Huh, you short people just aren't friendly at all. -- Rockjaw

Lord Protector Third Base Spock -- That's a mouthful.  Have you considered shortening
it?  Maybe just call yourself Third?  Not that it's any of my business.  No.  It's
the old "lands" question that brings me out.  We've recently been circularized from
the Isle about how slack we've all been (not just us in Rodeki, you see!) on the
matter of giving lands to Lord Protectors.  Of course, no one provides any lands for
us to give away, especially not the people on the Isle, but does anyone there think
of THAT?  Well, anyway, this is what I can find to offer you:  your choice of a share
in the Dirty Sock Mine, which was flooded out years ago but if you pumped it, you
MIGHT get it working again, or a free ticket on the Shuttle to the Isle.  You pick
it, guy. -- Torba Val, Arena Manager
