                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome RODEKI.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Bein' on top is great while 
it lasts, DUNGEON CELL.  But how many friends do you have now?  What's with STICKY 
FINGERS?  He actually beat DELVERS' ROCKHOG JR, and walked away with 17 more points 
from the fight.  Major screwup at DEMNAT'S PRIDE.  LIONESS lost 9 points to BUB 
MCSCRUBBS.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe LIONESS will provide more easy 
wins...  I'm sure RODEKI is excited about DACIMOUSEL, the new Duelmaster from 
DELVERS.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  I suppose you want 
to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You 
young rapscallions, take note!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
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

     Lazy Lookout -- Short and to the point. -- Torba Val, arena manager
     P.S.  Of course, you'll have to work for it.

Demnat's Pride -- Welcome to Rodeki! -- One Armed Bandit, mgr of Dungeon Cell

Lazy Lookout -- Your demonstration was not adequate for me to comprehend the meaning
of your name.  How can anyone do less than the possible best? -- Stonecrusher Mark II

Coldfishfinger -- This time I remembered to bring the dipping sauce, which made them
tastier, even though they're still cold. -- Dacimousel

Almost Pretty -- If you won't go to dinner with Daci, how about with me?  We need to
work on Stonecrusher's education, after all. -- Eacham

Big Disappointment -- No joke there. -- Faroman

The Userous Merchant's a fool, or he wouldn't have jerked around to stare into the
stands when a fan shouted insults, thereby giving me a perfect opportunity to cream
him. -- Rockhog
