                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly RODEKI games.  HOLLYMOOP caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested MASTER PO and was awarded 11 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, JADE TIGER put down RITA 
PYE, causing her to lose 5 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has 
SCADDIE in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven 
his combat skill yet again.  Would you believe that over half of the old women in 
RODEKI seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  RODEKI, city of gladiators!  
Mighty among the names of thy guilds is ELEMENTS OF ZEN, a guild shunned and avoided 
by many in the weekly duels.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it 
was that spent the better part of last week avoiding ELEMENTS OF ZEN.  Indeed it was 
COLOR ME SUAVE.  Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the 
knowledge that many fighters are after ROCKSOCK.  Watch your back!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the 
miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in RODEKI.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  More than a sharp eye must I 
keep, indeed a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari 
await me!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a 
maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Harby -- Thanks for the well wishes.  Seems like you and I will meet many times in
this arena given the number of teams we have here. -- Druid

Veteran Mercenary?  I didn't know dwarves grew that tall.  It seems contrary to
nature.  It should be prevented.  It should be stamped out when it occurs.  It's not
nice to fool Mother Nature. -- Rocksock

Miso Soup -- Yuck. -- Rackaboy

Jade Tiger -- Think of this "element of Zen" as the sound of one hand clapping...you
upside the head. -- Christellina

The Ambitious Guard is such a gentleman. -- Celie Shatterstone

By which she means he lost. -- Rackaboy

Master Po -- Learning to bear the slings and arrows of outraged crowds is just one of
life's little lessons.  I'm sure you'll be the better for it. -- Rita Pye
P.S.  And if not, well, I don't really care, you know?

Our congratulations to Scaddie. -- the Delvers

20 April 2007
All -- I've been...out of circulation for the last couple of months, and my lists
are not up to date.  If you've announced a manager name, a new alliance, or changed
a manager name or alliance since the middle of February, let me know in the ads, via
diplo, or in an e-mail (Sue (at) solberg-mathews (dot) com).  For that matter, if
you just want to make sure I've got things right, you can always do the same. -- The
Saint, keeper of lists
