                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of RODEKI.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  DELVERS had cause to 
celebrate, after RACKABOY got 14 points by beating MISO SOUP.  JADE TIGER certainly 
had a baffled expression on hers face, after losing to WINKY DINK and losing 11 
points in the process!  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by 
ROCKSOCK, of DELVERS, who despite a 16-21-0 couldn't overcome RODEKI's Number 1.  So 
who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  
Someone's got a basic problem...   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from the lion, so 
did the "warriors" in RODEKI avoid ELEMENTS OF ZEN.  The warriors of ELEMENTS OF ZEN 
found their efforts at combat frustrated as COLOR ME SUAVE apparently had more 
important things to do than fight.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Ask not for whom the 
sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  More important duties call me.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid RODEKI farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

                                     PERSONAL ADS

Rackaboy -- It's not supposed to taste good. -- Miso

Rita -- That's what you get for spanking Po. -- Jade

Scaddie -- They tell me that it is a "courtesy" to allow you a win on your last fight
here.  Apparently my human teammates put a value on this courtesy business,
therefore, you win.  It is all much the same to me. -- Rocksock
P.S.  What insurance policy?  Why would I want an insurance policy?

Miso Soup -- Yuck-O.  No way you're going to persuade me that's food. -- Christellina

Killer Kabuki -- Cool!  I didn't realize a female golem could be swayed by such a
red-blooded model of masculine pulchritude as me, but gosh!  You were!  This really
winds me up.  How about dinner? -- Rackaboy
P.S.  Er, if you eat, that is?

Hong Kong Fooey -- What, did you think I was some kind of Fae Wray to get all excited
and fluttery when I saw you?  As if! -- Celie Shatterstone

Jade Tiger -- It didn't look to ME like there was any opening for me to show how I
could fight.  I mean, you up and tried to bite my head off.  This upsets me, you
know?  So I just quit the fight.  I can never do any good when I'm upset. -- Rita Pye

Druid -- Yep, Small Arena Syndrome, and this isn't the worst instance of it, either.
But it does give you a chance to get really familiar with your opponents, if your
mind works that way.  No surprises, but some days, nobody WANTS a surprise. -- Harby
