                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, RODEKI?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  I can just hear all the boasts coming in 
ALLIED FORCES' next personal ads.  Their first turn they went 5-0-0.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see SEA LAWYER win a fight and gain 15 points, 
terribly.  And if variety is the spice of life, RODEKI may be getting bland, as 
CORRUPT TURNKEY stays top dog in the city.  The Warty Toad, humph!  I've tasted 
better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From RODEKI's trash dumps?  
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, FAROMAN was this 
turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  ROCKHOG JR was 
challenged by one of COLOR ME SUAVE's warriors this turn, with ALMOST PRETTY having a 
lead of 16 points going into the fight.  And golly gee, ALMOST PRETTY subdued ROCKHOG 
JR.  Aren't we all surprised and impressed?  And we have BIG DISAPPOINTMENT in a 
challenge, going down 8 points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought BIG 
DISAPPOINTMENT showed great skill and promise when he won victory over FAROMAN.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for RODEKI's 
morgue.  More variety.  COLOR ME SUAVE has cause to pause today, as THE HYPHEN-DASH 
was sent to the Dark Arena, and came back--though not in the best of moods, I'll 
wager.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is developing 
these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in RODEKI to get a drink than The Warty Toad!  
Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  
Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see the crowds are getting restless, I 
must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Model Prisoner -- I don't know who you model for, but I gotta tell you, these
"supermodel" airs are a bit much. -- Dacimousel

Almost Pretty -- I have observed no change since last time. -- Stonecrusher Mark II

Lazy Lookout -- Not lazy enough, dammit. -- Eacham

Big Disappointment -- You just don't learn, do you?  No wonder you're a
disappointment.  Listen, AGAIN.  You're supposed to LOSE THE FIGHT. -- Rockhog

Coldfishfinger -- You gave ma a grue, but I gave it back.  Never take a grue from
someone with a weird name. -- Faroman

Congratulations to The Hyphen-Dash. -- Harby and the Delvers

Hyphen-Dash -- It has been handed to me as a basic principle that I am not to "waste"
any going-away gift of significant value on a golem.  I don't think this is quite
what the Lady Greywand had in mind, but I will leave it to her to supply any
perceived deficiency. -- Torba Val, chief steward and business manager of Rodeki
Arena

26 August 09
     There has been a run lately of personals and columns turning up in the wrong
     arenas.  When you email in something, check and make sure you have the correct
     arena number!  It's easy for a finger to slip onto the wrong key.  When the
     receipt comes back, check again to be sure it went where you intended!
     Vigilance is your friend, and mine too. -- the Editor
