                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Farewell, Rodeki, and unless the boss gets a phenomenal replacement for me here,
this will be our last turn here.  I leave here having picked up my 17th political
point by retaining the throne last turn.  While highly skilled (172 total skills, I
think), I lack the physical attributes that the boss usually likes having on his Wall
of Steels.  But he has decided that it's worth an attempt to see what I can do in
Home Guard after this.

                                      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 INTELLECTS OF HIPHOP 
was unseated this week as COLOR ME SUAVE moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top 
spot with a 4-1-0 record for the round.  BUTTERLIPS caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested PERSISTENT BEGGAR and was awarded 15 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, ARMORED ECHO put 
down ISENGALEN, causing him to lose 4 points of recognition in the process.  Due to 
its absence and inability to defend the throne, DORSAL FINN has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail ARMORED 
ECHO, Duelmaster of RODEKI!  Informants "close" to the city champion have told me 
that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city RODEKI.  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in RODEKI these 
days is NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC.  At least, most blades in town are looking to avoid 
them.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any 
of COLOR ME SUAVE last week.  Busy avoiding NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC?   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the 
miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till next we 
meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

We congratulate Dorsall Finn. -- Harby and the Delvers

Wolverine -- Eat sand, beast!  Or some reasonable facsimile.  Actually, eating sand
is a bad idea, very hard on the teeth. -- Gastaigne

Tantrum Yoga -- That you kill me is bad enough, but the Commission!  They don't even
give me a single-turn mention in the Dead listing!  This is a gross insult, and I
won't forget. -- Ghost of Elifas Kont
P.S.  In fact, I think I'll come back RIGHT AWAY to haunt your teammates.  And mine.
