                                      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.  Practice pays for GAVEN 
ADLER, who pummelled MOIST TOWELETTE, to pocket 20 points.  MOIST TOWELETTE certainly 
had a baffled expression on its face, after losing to GAVEN ADLER and losing 17 
points in the process!  WINKY DINK successfully staved off a grab for the roses by 
CHRISTELLINA of DELVERS.  Does RODEKI have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  
Word has it one team in RODEKI is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a 
charmed life!   
     And how sociable are RODEKI's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like the noble eagle 
soaring amongst the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of FLAGG'S FIVE, alone and 
unchallenged.  The warriors of FLAGG'S FIVE found their efforts at combat frustrated 
as COLOR ME SUAVE apparently had more important things to do than fight.  Is it 
charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, 
ASBENTA is the most challenged warrior.  Take heed RODEKI, of the unprincipled action 
of DIPSY DIXIE.  By challenging ROCKHOG, 22 points below her, DIPSY DIXIE besmirches 
the noble art of dueling.  DIPSY DIXIE overcame ROCKHOG with a point difference of 
22.  So this is what RODEKI calls a duel.  This will make an interesting tale.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen 
into an unconscious stupor.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond my 
control, I must take my leave of this place.  RODEKI, I leave you now.  The 
Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Welcome Wench.  'Til next time-- 
Novgorodny Vir

Suave!! -- Flagg made me send this out as soon as he realized his error.  He says 'I
was in such a great state of shock, that I temporarily lost my senses.  I apologize
for thinking it was your stable that killed Master Scheduler.  I will instead
instruct Doone to deliver appropriate punishment to Harby and her squad.  Again, I
apologize for my faux pas.'  Errmmm...so, yeah Harby, Asbenta's going to be in the
cross hairs for the next 3 turns. -- Doone

Suave -- My apologies, as well for not realizing Flagg's error.  I need to spend less
time at the pub and more at work. -- Doone

Doone -- Um...none of my warriors killed Master Scheduler.  The Cheeser offed
Mudslinger, but that was relatively accidental.  Sorry to hear you lost a +4, but
really, my scales go from 1-10.  A 4 is barely noticeable. -- Suave

Doone again -- Sponsoring the training center?  Sure, I offer them free tickets to
the arena when my guys fight, but that's just because they're too ignorant to know
there isn't a charge for admission anyway.  If you saw the makeup of the current CMS
crew, I don't think you'd be as impressed.  In fact: Winky Dink just graduated:
17-13-4-17-8-8-17.  The Towel: 13-9-9-21-18-7-7.  Good rollup that shouldn't be a
striker, but I needed another for the round robin.  Cheese is 9-3-16-11-21-13-11,
with an uncanny ability to learn next to nothing.  Hit her once and the fight's over.
Suckfoot: 14-6-10-17-17-3-17.  Niiiice rollup.  AB your first choice?  Especially
nice since his favorite learn is init.  With him due to retire on his invite, I
suspect that won't matter.  And Dixie?  17-3-17-15-9-10-13.  I kept him only because
I was shooting for a 14-1 span.  Don't get me wrong; she does exactly what she's
supposed to.  But quality recruits?  I'd just ruin them.
P.S.  Hire aimers now; the last style I have to graduate for my second round robin is
a TP.

Christellina -- Should I expect the premature farewell too? -- Suckfoot

Stonecrusher II -- Job was/is an AB.  I know only too well.  I gave him his first win
after he went 0-72.  Oops. -- Suave

Winky Dink -- (urgently)  You have to train your SZ!  I mean, I loved it when you
winked at me, and yes, I would be delighted to go out to dinner with you, but quick!
Train your size!  Five inches.  You can do it. -- Asbenta

Moist Towelette -- So handy that you threw yourself at my feet.  I can use you to
clean the drool off Asbenta.  Whatever is she thinking?  So Winky is a blond hunk,
he's also a SHORT blond hunk.  She should know better! -- Christellina

Ducem -- Remind me never to play cards with you.  Ouch! -- Dacimousel
P.S.  At least I didn't bet my shares in the mine.

Gaven Adler -- Ah.  Human subtlety.  I do not "do" subtlety.  Nor react to it
effectively. -- Stonecrusher II

Dipsy Dixie -- (quivering)  Gods, I love a big woman who's sure of herself. --
Rockhog

Doone -- By all means, bloodfeud Suave for the death of Master Scheduler!  Make him
pay! -- Asbenta

Our congratulations to Winky Dink. -- Harby and the Delvers
