                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly RODEKI games.  Former top team SHREDDERS was unseated 
this week as DELVERS moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot with a 4-1-0 
record for the round.  There were bitter words at SHREDDERS' guildhouse after a 0-3-0 
showing this week which dropped the stable into 5th.  Dark Arena anyone?  Did only my 
eyes note the 4-0-0 record which ANDROID DUNGEON 004 managed to post this round?  I 
don't doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  ISENGALEN caught the eye of 
many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested KWS and was awarded 18 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, ISENGALEN put down 
KWS, causing him to lose 16 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing 
has URCHIN in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's 
proven his combat skill yet again.  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 
die in duels this week, the whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in RODEKI these days is COLOR ME SUAVE.  At least, most blades in town 
are looking to avoid them.  Apparently the stalwarts of ANDROID DUNGEON 004 are 
catching the bulk of jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the 
avoids.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers 
the miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     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 - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a 
maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

P.S.  Who says orcs can't be subtle?

Montrose -- I got shredded by a Briar Rose once.  Any kin of yours? -- Isengalen

didn't believe I could lose to you.  Have you no compassion? -- Fellerman

Spacewaster -- Oh... sorry, I thought you were, I dunno, an end table or something.
I guess I shouldn't have leaned on you like that. -- Elifas Kont
