                                      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.  The SHREDDERS guild has had a 
3-1-1 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind 
of thing can lead.  And let's see, HENDRIX fought SPORK! and gained 24 points and 
contributed to SHREDDERS' 3-1-1.  SPORK! has lost to HENDRIX, falling 16 points, 
while helping make I CAN'T BRUSH YOU a 1-3-0 turn.  And all eyes were on GASTAIGNE 
this turn as he ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  RODEKI has a new victor!  By 
the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at 
The Swinging Aardvark?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  LYON must have surprised SHREDDERS this turn, after they sent him to 
the Dark Arena, but the Dark Arena couldn't hold him!  A brave warrior does not carry 
a red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well. 
     I like this place, RODEKI, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in RODEKI and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Rodekill -- I don't know if you need better roads or worse ones to "do your stuff."
But I do know that the local roads are real killers, and if you want to kill one of
THEM, I'm for it. -- Gastaigne

happens. -- Ghost of Hondurkan

The Osksi Noble is a dwarf.  And since I'm a Shew, with a natural antipathy for
dwarves, well, what else could I do? -- Elifas Kont
