                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
RODEKI brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see ELIFAS KONT win a fight and gain 20 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
RODEKILL beat GASTAIGNE and GASTAIGNE lost 12 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And 
it's out with the old, in with the new, as BRAID takes the Title and last week's bar 
tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, 
how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
INTELLECTS OF HIPHOP, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most 
avoided team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And who led the way in 
this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was SHREDDERS.  Ha ha 
ha ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, GASTAIGNE was this turn's most challenged 
warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  I suspect either a 21 will or a 21 ego 
on this one, but SRV has challenged up by 28 in an attempt against TOOTHBRUSH.  My 
sides still hurt from laughing about TOOTHBRUSH losing and giving SRV 19 points of 
recognition.  Ha ha ha ha!!   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Three down, and one turn to go for DELVERS 
to call in the bloodfeud against TOOTHBRUSH, else HONDURKAN is but small history.  
Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain nameless 
cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the RODEKI arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see 
the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Jello Knuckles -- Do you know how STICKY that stuff is?  And it's, well, it's kind of
wimpy for an orc to eat jello, so I was in a difficulty when you started throwing it
at me.  Eat it and be called a wimp, a sissy girly-boy, by all other orcs, or refuse
and spend HOURS trying to get it out of my beard.  In the end, I couldn't decide
which to do, and that probably cost me the fight. -- Gastaigne

Srv -- I'm not getting the whole business with your name.  Most people have at least
one vowel in their name, and without... well, it's awkward.  I didn't know where to
look while the steward was wrestling with that problem and getting red in the face,
didn't want to make his embarrassment worse, you know, and then you hit me!  I hadn't
realized that he was done announcing you. -- Elifas Kont

Mase-O -- I wouldn't want to tell you what to do, but I think, just my opinion, that
trying to hiphop during the fight was a mistake.  Sure, it gave me a pause or two
trying to figure out where you were so I could hit you, but when you landed, you were
right THERE catching your breath, and then I nailed you.  Good for me, of course, and
I'm not complaining.  Just a comment. -- Fellerman

Common Sense -- What? -- Igor Jones

A Convicted Thief.  Okay, I can do Convicted Thieves.  One at a time, anyway. --
