                                      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 DELVERS was unseated 
this week as NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC moved up from 5th ranking to take the top spot with 
a 3-2-2 record for the round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the 
corner!  Witness how this week INTELLECTS OF HIPHOP went 5-0-0 to move up 5 in the 
rankings.  NERD LUST caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as it 
skillfully bested ARMORED ECHO and was awarded 22 points in recognition.  In one of 
the week's more notable duels, DANGEROUS CRIMINAL put down ISENGALEN, causing him to 
lose 15 points of recognition in the process.  Due to his absence and inability to 
defend the throne, URCHIN has lost the title of Duelmaster.  The city has turned out 
in honor of DORSAL FINN, for with its arena victory it may now lay claim to the 
highest position in the city!  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top 
team has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city RODEKI.  RODEKI, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names of thy 
guilds is I CAN'T BRUSH YOU, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly duels. 
Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better part 
of last week avoiding I CAN'T BRUSH YOU.  Indeed it was NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC.  Loose 
talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many 
fighters are after IGOR JONES.  Watch your back!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Cruelly, DORSAL FINN of NATIONAL 
GEOGRAPHIC has slain the lesser ranked WET NOODLES.  Word already flies around town 
that I CAN'T BRUSH YOU plans a bloodfeud!  Walk proud, warriors of NATIONAL 
GEOGRAPHIC!  By striking down WET NOODLES you have avenged the honor of your dead.  
Your virtue is known to all in RODEKI.  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he 
bears arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off 
city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier 
than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
