Rodeki Residents and Ruffians!

At long last Hammer has the honor of an Aimer Graduating from one of his stables
after 10+ years!  Namely Me!  8-9-13-11-17-5-21 Fist Favorite!  VL/VL Rhythm!  Ex
Rip/Adv Ex Att/Ex Par [My Favorite Learn!] and I Do Great Damage!  The Consortium
says I Am a Rare Warrior!  As I Enjoy Riding on the Home Range I will be sent to
Arena 101 Home Guard Arena as a Graduation Present from Hammer!  My Thanks to
Everyone Who Made This Dream Possible!  The View from the Top is More Glorious Than
Ever!

Ride 'Em Cowboy!
John Wayne Hammer a.k.a. The Duke of Duelists!

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  The boys at DELVERS left the arena dejected, after being kicked out of 
the top spot by COLOR ME SUAVE.  Good show!  Practice pays for WINKY DINK, who 
pummelled MISO SOUP, to pocket 18 points.  CELIE SHATTERSTONE certainly had a baffled 
expression on hers face, after losing to KILLER KABUKI and losing 13 points in the 
process!  What can be a greater victory?  WOLVERINE has taken his place as the top, 
as RODEKI's new Duelmaster.  Word has it one team in RODEKI is using psychics to 
predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  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.  If challenges were horses, MISO SOUP 
could open up a fast food joint!  Call 'im brash!  Call 'im brassy!  Call 'im brave!  
Call 'im sassy!  MOIST TOWELETTE will face RITA PYE, up by 26.  Aaaah, just call 'im 
dead meat.  Not to smear a reputation, but DELVERS must be a little surprised, as 
RITA PYE blew it when facing MOIST TOWELETTE, 26 points below her.  HONG KONG FOOEY 
found himself challenged by a warrior 21 below:  HOLLYMOOP.  HOLLYMOOP of COLOR ME 
SUAVE kept his wits as he bested HONG KONG FOOEY.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in RODEKI is the highlight of my life.  As the seasons 
change, and the creatures of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave 
this place.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Rodeki Ruffians and Residents -- Many Thanks for NOT Killing Off John Wayne Hammer!
A Truly Blest Gladiator!  I will continue running Quick Dead Hammer until Death or
Graduation!  Then I Must leave this Fine Arena and Devote Attention to Other Stables
and Goals! -- Hammer/Minister of War

Rodeki's sentence of the day:  "The battle begins."  I should hope so!

John Wayne Hammer -- This is true, I don't belong here.  I am a mining golem.
However, one does as one must in whatever position occurs.  I salute you. -- Rocksock

Miso Soup -- No.  Absolutely not.  No way.  I will have nothing to do with it. --
Rackaboy
P.S.  I'll say "miso soup" requires serious treatment.  Down the drain.  I don't
think even the dog is willing to eat it.

Killer Kabuki -- So?  Go kill a kabuki then, I won't stop you. -- Celie Shatterstone
P.S.  That match should have been more even.  Maybe...drop the shield?  It wasn't
like you were using it once the fight heated up.

Hong Kong Fooey -- You got that right!  Maybe your manager should bribe the
handicapper (issue challenges and use avoids) in order to get you better matches? --
Christellina

Hollymoop -- Armor is your friend.  Better to lose and live than lose and die, after
all. -- Rita Pye

Miso Soup -- You mean, it's medicine?  In that case, I don't want anything to do with
it even more, because I'm not sick. -- Rackaboy

Jade -- It was a dirty job, but somebody had to do it. -- Rita Pye

Our congratulations to that vicious killer, John Wayne Hammer. -- the Delvers
