                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in RODEKI since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with CHRISTELLINA?  
She actually beat COLOR ME SUAVE's MOIST TOWELETTE, and walked away with 21 more 
points from the fight.  Major screwup at COLOR ME SUAVE.  MOIST TOWELETTE lost 20 
points to CHRISTELLINA.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe MOIST TOWELETTE will 
provide more easy wins...  ASBENTA was reminded on the sands why WINKY DINK is 
Duelmaster.  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some 
team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, FLAGG'S FIVE!  The 
bums at EVILUTION couldn't face the challenges from FLAGG'S FIVE!  No excuse for 
that!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover 
stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  RODEKI is 
a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

All -- Well, dang! -- Ghost of Blazing Blur

All -- Well, double dang!! -- Ghost of Master Scheduler

I'm going to have to talk to the commission about the quality of their recruit

training program here in Rodeki.  To say it's currently lacking is an understatement.
Or, perhaps I should start 'sponsoring' the training center like Suave does, so I can
get the cream of the crop. -- Doone

Ducem -- You are a much better warrior than that and I believe you were taking it
easy on me.  Why don't you challenge me and step up the attack some to see how well I
can really fare against you. -- Gaven Adler

H'Kruggag -- You silly hippo!  How dare you lay your hands on me!!  I will have your
head for that! -- Hippo Huntress

Suckfoot -- Ehh...I certainly thought that would go differently. -- Rima Adler

Suave -- Can't remember for sure if I sent in for a bloodfeud or not this turn, but
you've got to be expecting it.  Master Scheduler was the first +4 attack Flagg's seen
in a long while (and without busting out the records, possibly the only one he's ever
had), so he's been a little bummed out about MS' death. -- Doone

Master Scheduler -- Surely you could fit something more enjoy--  Oh.  Oh, dear.  I
didn't realize at first that you weren't just, you know, dangerously stunned.  I'm
sorry you died.  I didn't mean for that.  If you hadn't ducked into my blow, you'd've
been fine.  I think.  Darn. -- Asbenta, much subdued by the unlooked-for death of her
opponent

Winky Dink -- (waves hand languidly)  I'm sure you earned it. -- Christellina

Seldon -- Aren't there some WEST Side Bullocks around somewhere?  I seem to have
heard mention of that.  What's the deal, are you bullocking around the compass? --
Dacimousel

Devers -- It was said to me that you might be hanged in the morning.  This does not
seem to be worthy of the emotion invested in this comment.  What is wrong with
hanging?  It keeps things off the floor and prevents wrinkles.  And it may not be
true.  I have found that humans devote much effort to persuading each other of
untruths.  Very strange. -- Stonecrusher II

Wisdom Tooth -- If you are so gosh-darned wise, what did you want all those skills
for?  And why didn't you teach me more? -- Rockhog

Mallow -- I shall file that advice for future reference, but cannot see a great
probability of ever needing it.  Being a golem, I do not buy potions.  Well, it is
possible that Harby or one of my teammates might send me out to make such a purchase,
but if they specify this "Job," I will repeat your advice to them. -- Stonecrusher II
P.S.  I thought Job was a basher who graduated from Talcama after sixty-seven
straight losses?
