                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Aha!  I handed Hard Knocks some of her own back.  I'm sure she knows what that
means.  After all, we're both orcs, and orcs are very physical.  Let the silly elves
mess around with flowers, bah!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for RODEKI.  MVP award for ELIFAS KONT?  
DELVERS' proud of him after beating PRIDE and getting 19 points.  Talk about yer 
major upsets!  PRIDE's match with ELIFAS KONT cost him a loss of 11 points!  Was that 
a tear I saw in HARD KNOCKS' eye, as she took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't DAMON 
SHOVELL fit to be tied!  Who was the wiseguy that said RODEKI's Duelmaster was paying 
for drinks at The Swinging Aardvark?  Don't look at me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  I was SO depressed when I heard FEATHERLESS WOOZY got killed.  It was 
just a kid, and didn't get a fair chance in RODEKI, or anything!  Fight, fight, 
fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

spear the asparagus, and the soup just dribbles away. -- Elifas Kont
