                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly RODEKI games.  THE HYPHEN-DASH caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as it skillfully bested STONECRUSHER II and was 
awarded 18 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, EACHAM 
put down ALMOST PRETTY, causing her to lose 7 points of recognition in the process.  
Although DACIMOUSEL made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of 
victorious DIPSY DIXIE.  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!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Some say a warrior is judged by the way 
he bears arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!  
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in RODEKI.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I 
keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  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

Dipsy Dixie -- Why do you scorn me?  I bring you flowers and chocolates, I buy you
meals--and that is no small matter, because you eat as much as two or three humans--I
sit beside you in the park, and yet still, still!  You will not accompany me to the
weekly dance at the Rodeki Arms.  My heart is breaking for you, or at least it's
bruised. -- Dacimousel

The Venomous Concubine?  I don't like her.  She's vicious. -- Rockhog
P.S.  And venomous.

Chatty Cabalist -- I do not comprehend the purpose of this "chatting."  No useful
data is conveyed.  Why do you do it? -- Stonecrusher Mark II

Lemon Tender -- Er, ah, I wouldn't want to say you are too tart, exactly, too many
potential misunderstandings there, but a little more sugar wouldn't hurt. -- Eacham

Coldfishfinger -- Really?  I'm not getting that one at all. -- Faroman
