                                      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.  And let's see, HENDRIX fought 
FELLERMAN and gained 19 points and contributed to SHREDDERS' 2-1-0.  TOOTHBRUSH has 
lost to HONDURKAN, falling 9 points, while helping make I CAN'T BRUSH YOU a 1-3-0 
turn.  Defending his title for another turn, JELLO KNUCKLES kept DELVERS' warrior, 
GASTAIGNE, from claiming the throne.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw 
last night, cramped under the table at The Warty Toad?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the COLOR ME SUAVE stable was the most 
avoided team this turn.  Come on RODEKI, what are you afraid of?  And guess who 
avoided COLOR ME SUAVE stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was SHREDDERS.  Anyone 
surprised?   
     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.  A brave warrior does not carry a 
red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in RODEKI, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Unknown Commentor -- Hey, I resemble that remark!  But if an orc wants to use a
shortsword, he or she WILL use it, and to good effect. -- Damon Shovell

Tantrum Yoga -- This time, I had a plan:  I got blind drunk before the fight, so I
couldn't see the weird stuff you were doing.  And because I couldn't see it, I wasn't
put off by it.  So I won.  A triumph logic and good liquor. -- Gastaigne

Toothbrush -- I'm an orc, dammit!  We don't need no sissy toothbrushes! -- Hondurkan

Why Do You Ask Me -- Why not? -- Elifas Kont
