                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
RODEKI brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see FAROMAN win a fight and gain 11 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
DANGEROUS CRIMINAL beat DAMON SHOVELL and DAMON SHOVELL lost 5 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as EACHAM takes the 
Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Welcome Wench, 
humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From 
RODEKI's trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  I CAN'T BRUSH YOU was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily 
livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was COLOR ME SUAVE.  Ha ha ha ha!  
COMB was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM 
insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  I notice BUB MCSCRUBBS challenging down 26 points to 
fight GASTAIGNE, COLOR ME SUAVE doubtless has some rotten excuse for such an insult 
to honor.  And sorry to say, BUB MCSCRUBBS won victory over GASTAIGNE, leaving a bad 
feeling with the crowd.  I think exploitive snob is the term I'm looking for.  And we 
have JELLO KNUCKLES in a challenge, going down 12 points for the fight.  Guess what?  
I thought JELLO KNUCKLES showed great skill and promise when he beat HAIRBRUSH.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess 
what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the RODEKI arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste 
this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide
