                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly RODEKI games.  Former top team I CAN'T BRUSH YOU was 
unseated this week as COLOR ME SUAVE moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 5-0-0 record for the round.  JELLO KNUCKLES caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested COMB and was awarded 15 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, JELLO KNUCKLES put down COMB, 
causing it to lose 15 points of recognition in the process.  Due to his absence and 
inability to defend the throne, STICKY FINGERS has lost the title of Duelmaster.  
This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail COLDFISHFINGER, 
Duelmaster of RODEKI!  Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he 
never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In RODEKI "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition 
from those below.  EACHAM take warning!  You have more than a few enemies in RODEKI.  
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the 
miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     The girls are as pretty in RODEKI as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  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

Big Disappointment -- I noticed. -- Faroman

Bub Mcscrubbs -- I think you have a suavity problem, Bub.  It's your name.  No woman
-that I ever met--is going to think a man called "Bub" is suave.  Well, unless he was
rich.  That always helps. -- Eacham

Dead Man Walking -- Walk elsewhere.  I don't need you in my life. -- Rockhog

A Captured Orc.  How thrilling.  As an orc myself, I feel a certain sympathy for him,
which unfortunately handicaps me in fighting him.  Damn. -- Gastaigne

Floor Mat -- Seems to me I brushed you thoroughly.  Too bad you weren't up for it. --
Damon Shovell
P.S.  Harby tells me I should feel regret at your death.  Why?  Well, except for the
loss of someone I can defeat.
