                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in RODEKI this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, JOHN WAYNE HAMMER fought CHIP and 
gained 25 points and contributed to KLK RANGE HAMMERZ's 1-1-1.  Well done, RODEKI, 
the Duelmaster was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Perhaps QUICK DEAD HAMMER is 
not as thrilled, being challenged 2 times.  SCADDIE Bloodfeuded for the 
Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone KLK RANGE HAMMERZ's warrior.  And 
not without some honor, SCADDIE now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of 
RODEKI.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the 
table at The Dripping Blade?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the RESCUE RANGERS stable was the most 
avoided team this turn.  Come on RODEKI, what are you afraid of?  And guess who 
avoided RESCUE RANGERS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was COLOR ME SUAVE.  
Anyone surprised?  DELAWARE RUN of COLOR ME SUAVE had better have a good reason for 
challenging down 12 points in a challenge which he won.  I thought DELAWARE RUN 
showed great skill and promise when he bested RACKABOY.  All right, so I slept 
through it!  Big deal!   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  RESCUE RANGERS has lost CHIP to the 
arena in the sky, but they don't seem to be worried.  What do you expect from 8-6-0?  
We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their enemies.  You know 
who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in RODEKI again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe
