                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, RODEKI?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, COLOR ME SUAVE, since I 
CAN'T BRUSH YOU took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see ROCKHOG JR win a fight and gain 15 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, COMB beat DAMON SHOVELL and DAMON SHOVELL lost 10 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.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks 
and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, GASTAIGNE was this 
turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  BRAID was 
challenged by one of COLOR ME SUAVE's warriors this turn, with JELLO KNUCKLES having 
a lead of 20 points going into the fight.  This is the sort of thing that makes the 
price of admission to RODEKI's games worth it!  JELLO KNUCKLES was bested by BRAID!!  
And we have FLIMSY KNICKERS in a challenge, going down 8 points for the fight.  Guess 
what?  I thought FLIMSY KNICKERS showed great skill and promise when she defeated 
GASTAIGNE.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for RODEKI's 
morgue.  More variety.  COLOR ME SUAVE has cause to pause today, as COLDFISHFINGER 
was sent to the Dark Arena, and came back--though not in the best of moods, I'll 
wager.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain 
nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in RODEKI to get a drink than The Warty Toad!  
Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  
Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide 
Clemens
