                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in RODEKI a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  The DELVERS guild has had a 4-1-0 
turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of 
thing can lead.  And let's see, FAROMAN fought COLDFISHFINGER and gained 14 points 
and contributed to DELVERS' 4-1-0.  BUB MCSCRUBBS has lost to DEAD MAN WALKING, 
falling 8 points, while helping make COLOR ME SUAVE a 2-3-0 turn.  The attempts to 
dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and STICKY FINGERS remains RODEKI's top warrior 
for another turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable 
sources that The Welcome Wench uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  DEMNAT'S PRIDE has cause to stand 
tall, as they were RODEKI's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team 
to beat.  And avoiding DEMNAT'S PRIDE more than any other team we find COLOR ME 
SUAVE.  RODEKI, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most 
challenged warrior this turn was DELVERS' warrior GASTAIGNE.  More fighters 
challenged him than challenged the Duelmaster!  FLIMSY KNICKERS of COLOR ME SUAVE had 
better have a good reason for challenging down 11 points in a challenge which she 
won.  I thought FLIMSY KNICKERS showed great skill and promise when she bested COMB.  
All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their enemies.  
You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     I like this place, RODEKI, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in RODEKI, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe
