                                      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.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as COLOR ME SUAVE is pushed out of top team by DELVERS, who came from 2nd 
with a 2-3-0 this turn.  And let's see, DAMON SHOVELL fought JELLO KNUCKLES and 
gained 24 points and contributed to DELVERS' 2-3-0.  GASTAIGNE has lost to BRAID, 
falling 21 points, while helping make DELVERS a 2-3-0 turn.  And not without some 
honor, OSTMAN now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of RODEKI.  Tell me, is 
nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Dripping Blade uses 
trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  COMB has departed RODEKI, leaving I 
CAN'T BRUSH YOU without their 6-14-1 warrior.  Question, just what was its team doing 
at the taverns last night?  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?  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep 
your swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets 
to paper-- Alarond the Scribe
