                                      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, DELVERS, since COLOR ME 
SUAVE took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're all 
terribly impressed to see RODEKILL win a fight and gain 16 points, terribly.  Tsk, 
tsk, RODEKILL beat TOOTHBRUSH and TOOTHBRUSH lost 15 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  Due to absence, and inability to defend the throne, OSTMAN has lost the Title 
of Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, in with 
the new, as DAMON SHOVELL takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old 
Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you 
this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, RODEKI?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  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 Dripping 
Blade!  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.  I see the crowds are getting 
restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Gastaigne -- Awww, stupid arenamaster, never lets me bury anyone in the sand... --
Braid

     I should hope not!  You perhaps have no idea how extremely ANNOYING the
     janitorial staff can be when they have to dig gladiators out of the sand between
     the fights.  And good janitors are hard to find these days.  They all think they
     should be gladiators themselves. -- Torbal Val, plant manager for Rodeki arena

Tantrum Yoga -- Is it my turn for a Tantrum now? -- Why do you ask me

Rodekill -- You rodekilled me. -- Ghost of Comb

Elifas Kont -- Spork won!  Spork won!  Yay! -- Spork!

Jello Knuckles -- Ah, cherry, my favorite flavor!  Tasty, and just firm enough
without being tough. -- Damon Shovell

Braid -- You left me all tangled up. -- Gastaigne

The Mordant Deserter is a wimp, but then, what else could he be? -- Hondurkan

Featherless Woozy -- Ah... all right.  Sure, I know about them.  They're... a kind of
bird, a burrowing bird... dig in the pine needles, right?  Endangered species, try
not to damage.  Okay.  Right... featherless woozies.  Got it.  Uh, maybe not got it,
actually, since it seems to have got me.  But a rare bird, well, I don't mind losing
to a rare bird.  It's... an honor or something.  Yeah. -- Fellerman

Spork! -- Darned orcs!  Making fun of me because the Commission thinks I'm a dwarf!
