                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of RODEKI.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  DELVERS?  Who?  COLOR 
ME SUAVE is the top team these days, buddies!  Practice pays for RODEKILL, who 
pummelled BRAID, to pocket 21 points.  A certain someone should cut down on the 
drinking and practice more, after losing 20 points to RODEKILL.  (Discrete enough, 
BRAID?) What can be a greater victory?  DAMON SHOVELL has taken his place as the top, 
as RODEKI's new Duelmaster.  So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last 
week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Questions are 
being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain 
tavern in RODEKI would I avoid!   
     Do not think spyreporting in RODEKI is the highlight of my life.  More important 
duties call me.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Hard Knocks -- Wow, gotta love a woman who can say it with her fists! -- Damon
Shovell

Rodekill -- Who would want to kill a rode? -- Gastaigne

Mist -- Nothing like swinging wildly and doing the veritable wall of blades thing to
deal with a faceless and formless adversary.  At least, it worked. -- Hondurkan

Featherless Woozy -- It's probably the weather getting you down.  Without feathers
or, apparently, fur, you can get darned cold at this season. -- Fellerman
P.S.  Ah, shoot, I see that you DIED.  How could you do that?  I know it's cold, but
there were orderlies waiting with warmed blankets and hot drinks, and... and I'll
miss you.  We all will.  You added something special to this arena.

Pride -- Somehow, you aren't convincingly faceless.  I could work on that for you.
Rip it off or something. -- Elifas Kont the ever helpful
