                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly RODEKI games.  Did only my eyes note the 3-1-0 record 
which I CAN'T BRUSH YOU managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a record 
will draw challengers!  GASTAIGNE caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested TANTRUM YOGA and was awarded 18 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, GASTAIGNE put down TANTRUM 
YOGA, causing him to lose 15 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing 
has JELLO KNUCKLES 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?  
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city RODEKI.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Some say a warrior is judged by the way 
he bears arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!  
     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!  More than a sharp eye must I 
keep, indeed a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari 
await me!  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

Flagg!  Good to see you back.  Stay a while, we get better when there are people to
talk to. -- Harby and the Delvers

Jello Knuckles -- Go ahead, take the title, see if I care.  In fact, I have no
problem giving it to you with a win, it's no skin off MY nose. -- Damon Shovell
P.S.  Even the stewards could see that it was just luck you won.

Hard Knocks -- You and me both, babe.  Shortsword?  As if!  Very high, very low,
okay, I can go with that, but... shortsword? -- Damon Shovell
P.S.  Although it's a thing we seem to have in common.  Here's a plan, let's neither
of us use one.

     Good plan.  A shortsword is not orcish.

Rodekill -- Fair enough, I guess.  I've never been a big fan of "fair," but... I
really was sorry to see the Featherless Woozy go.  What a classic name, you know? --
Fellerman

Tantrum Yoga -- Really, you should be female.  I could get into a female with your
name.  If I was smooth enough, anyway.  And I can work on smooth. -- Gastaigne

Spork! -- Bring on the brussels sprouts! -- Hondurkan

Detra Vaughn -- Well, hel-LO there!  I like a feisty woman, and one with enough
figure to get hold of.  We should date. -- Elifas Kont
