                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, RODEKI?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see BUB MCSCRUBBS win a fight and gain 23 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, URCHIN beat 
GASTAIGNE and GASTAIGNE lost 9 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is 
the spice of life, RODEKI may be getting bland, as STICKY FINGERS stays top dog in 
the city.  The Swinging Aardvark, 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.   
     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.  We're all going to die in the end, so why 
worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of RODEKI.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are 
getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Coldfishfinger -- Who would have thought a hot-plate would make such a good weapon,
against a particular opponent?  I hope that freezing finger of yours has BLISTERS on
it. -- Faroman

Hard Knocks -- I dictated several comments that my scribe refused to note down, which
is annoying.  So let me just say that I bear you know ill will AT ALL and would be
glad to see more of you in a private setting. -- Gastaigne
P.S.  We orcs have to stick together, after all.

Sticky Fingers -- Agh, what a mess! -- Eacham

Braid -- I wonder if I could have you gold-plated and riveted to my armor? -- Rockhog

Hairbrush -- Why should I care what my hair looks like?  *I* can't see it. -- Damon
