                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in RODEKI this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  The SHREDDERS guild has had a 3-1-0 turn and 
deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can 
lead.  And let's see, STICKY FINGERS fought TOOTHBRUSH and gained 29 points and 
contributed to DUNGEON CELL's 2-2-1.  FELLERMAN has lost to WHY DO YOU ASK ME, 
falling 16 points, while helping make DELVERS a 1-4-0 turn.  This turn JELLO KNUCKLES 
challenged SPORK! in what was RODEKI's Title bout.  The attempts to dethrone the 
Duelmaster have failed, and JELLO KNUCKLES remains RODEKI's top warrior for another 
turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The 
Swinging Aardvark uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the SHREDDERS stable was 
the most avoided team this turn.  Come on RODEKI, what are you afraid of?  And guess 
who avoided SHREDDERS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was COLOR ME SUAVE.  
Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that SPORK! from I CAN'T BRUSH YOU 
was RODEKI's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     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.  DUNGEON CELL has some questions to 
answer.  Like 'why did you kill your fighter, PREMATURE EMBALMER, who had a record of 
3-0-0?' Had I not seen it, it would be hard to believe.  SPACEWASTER was sent to the 
Dark Arena and lived to tell about it!  Makes you think, no?  I guess it was coming 
sooner or later, I CAN'T BRUSH YOU has lost TOOTHBRUSH, and RODEKI is bound to miss 
it.  For a little while, at least.  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the 
graves of their enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  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--

Our congratulations to Jello Knuckles. -- Harby and the Delvers

Whatever tourney that was, we salute Rodeki's participants in it. -- Harby and the
Delvers

Tantrum Yoga -- You put on a fine performance out there, I don't think I've ever seen
anyone do the Soft Pretzel with Mustard and Cheese in full armor.  Despite the loss,
you made me look good, and that always helps, too. -- Gastaigne

Hendrix -- If that isn't just LIKE a dwarf.  You see a bit of tusk, and you go
berserk. -- Igor Jones the Ill-Used

Kws -- What?  Is that "w" supposed to be pronounced like "uu"?  I tried to ask you at
the beginning, but you wouldn't LISTEN till I pinned you to the sands and shouted at
you.  I want to know! -- Fellerman
P.S.  Hey, I like a little conversation now and then, okay?  Sue me.

Why Do You Ask Me -- For the pleasure of watching you foam at the moutn about it, of
course.  We Shews aren't subtle. -- Elifas Kont

A Cult Member?  No problem.  I can mosterize THREE cult members BEFORE BREAKFAST.  If
that's the only way to GET breakfast, anyway. -- Isengalen
