                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in RODEKI a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  And let's see, CELIE SHATTERSTONE 
fought QUICK DEAD HAMMER and gained 20 points and contributed to DELVERS' 3-2-0.  
MOIST TOWELETTE has lost to KILLER KABUKI, falling 6 points, while helping make COLOR 
ME SUAVE a 2-3-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and 
DELAWARE RUN remains RODEKI's top warrior for another turn.  Can someone confirm a 
rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Warty 
Toad until they win.  Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  BEASTIAL LEGION has cause to stand tall, as they were 
RODEKI's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And guess 
who avoided BEASTIAL LEGION stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was COLOR ME 
SUAVE.  Anyone surprised?   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover 
or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     I like this place, RODEKI, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in RODEKI and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in RODEKI again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe
