                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly RODEKI games.  DACIMOUSEL caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested RIMA ADLER and was awarded 22 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, CHEESY SQUEEZER put 
down ASBENTA, causing her to lose 6 points of recognition in the process.  This time 
victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail CHRISTELLINA, Duelmaster of 
RODEKI!  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this week, the 
whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city RODEKI.  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in RODEKI these 
days is FLAGG'S FIVE.  At least, most blades in town are looking to avoid them.  
Apparently the stalwarts of COLOR ME SUAVE are catching the bulk of jests down at the 
challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  As a gladiator gets older, 
the icy grip of fear lays hold of its heart.  True, MOIST TOWELETTE?  Who could miss 
your "brave" challenge of STONECRUSHER II?  The weight of the challenge fell hard 
upon STONECRUSHER II and predictably it was bested by MOIST TOWELETTE.  This is how 
to arouse the anger of an entire guild!  For some warriors honor is not 
important--only empty victory.  See, gladiators, how DIPSY DIXIE of COLOR ME SUAVE 
challenged down 26 points to ROCKHOG.  Few would not have guessed the outcome of the 
bout as ROCKHOG lost to DIPSY DIXIE.  Is this what passes for courage in RODEKI?   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  
In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed a 
stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
Till we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms 
no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

All -- As I've been busy with some contacts in Primus, I've had to ask the GC to tell
my warriors to fight exactly the same as the last round.  My apologies if any weird
down challenges come about from this. -- Doone

Asbenta -- Errrmmm...well, that fight shouldn't have turned out THAT way.  After all,
I am 'actively' managed.  Hrrmmm...going to have to look at changing it up for next
and last turn of bloodfeuding. -- Rima Adler
P.S.  Oh...and you shall pay, ingrate!

Moist Towlette -- I wouldn't have expected that result, but I guess it helps to be
able to take a hit or two. -- Gaven Adler

Eternity -- Well, at least I killed my embezzling scribe. -- Detra Vaughn

Detra Vaughn -- ... ... ... ... -- Eternity

Now gosh darn it!  Am I going to have to go and track down those Bullocks again? --
Doone

Rima Adler -- A valiant effort. -- Asbenta
P.S.  I thank you for the winning record, however briefly I may have it.

Dipsy Dixie -- That special move of yours?  Wow.  It made my eyeballs spin.  Want to
do it again?  We could find someplace private and practice it. -- Rockhog

Winky Dink -- Yes, you ARE!  You're probably going to laugh all the way to the Isle.
(exasperated sigh)  Oh, well, at least you'll be thinking of me! -- Christellina

I do not understand this "Fratsfa Slave."  What is it for? -- Stonecrusher II

The Captured Orc is pretty obvious.  He's here to be sliced and diced. -- Dacimousel

Suckfoot -- Eh?  What premature farewell? -- Christellina the confused

Suave -- I believe that is called "generous" by live people.  I am sure Job
"appreciated it." -- Stonecrusher II

Our congratulations to Suckfoot. -- Harby and the Delvers

31 May 2008
Any and all who live in the 805 area, I would like for you to call me so we can get
together for BBQ's, softball games, and so on.  It has been a while since the last
get together (several years).  It was a blast and I am sure the next one will be
also.  We just have to do it.  All alliances are welcome.  Just because my warriors
leave your warrior beaten and bloody in defeat does not mean we can't have a beer or
five together.  I'll even buy the first round.  So call 805-588-3419 and ask for Dave
a.k.a. Misfit, former member of the Green and Purple Polka Dot Alliance (GAPPDA).
