                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ha!  I can give harder hard knocks than Hard Knocks can.  Nothing personal, she
isn't a bad wench, but you know how it is, us orcs are very physical.

                                      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 DELVERS was unseated 
this week as COLOR ME SUAVE moved up from 4th ranking to take the top spot with a 
4-1-0 record for the round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the 
corner!  Witness how this week COLOR ME SUAVE went 4-1-0 to move up 3 in the 
rankings.  TOOTHBRUSH caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as it 
skillfully bested DAMON SHOVELL and was awarded 18 points in recognition.  In one of 
the week's more notable duels, TOOTHBRUSH put down DAMON SHOVELL, causing him to lose 
13 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has ROCKHOG JR in the past 
laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his combat skill yet 
again.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their 
position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In RODEKI "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat 
in RODEKI these days is I CAN'T BRUSH YOU.  At least, most blades in town are looking 
to avoid them.  Apparently the stalwarts of COLOR ME SUAVE are catching the bulk of 
jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty 
fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  BRAID take warning!  You 
have more than a few enemies in RODEKI.  As a gladiator gets older, the icy grip of 
fear lays hold of his heart.  True, TANTRUM YOGA?  Who could miss your "brave" 
challenge of FELLERMAN?  Few would not have guessed the outcome of the bout as 
FELLERMAN was subdued by TANTRUM YOGA.  Is this what passes for courage in RODEKI?   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  BRAID must hold silent, for this week it was humbled in the arena 
by a successful Bloodfeud won by JELLO KNUCKLES of COLOR ME SUAVE.  Hail JELLO 
KNUCKLES for thy victory!  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with 
fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in RODEKI.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of 
a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember:  a fool 
flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by the same thing only 
once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes
