                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of RODEKI.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Nothing is certain in 
RODEKI, with changing loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top 
team--DELVERS.  Practice pays for SEAFOOD RISOTTO, who pummelled IZZY, to pocket 15 
points.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after 
losing 5 points to BUTTERLIPS.  (Discrete enough, ELIFAS KENT?) UNCLE TED 
successfully staved off a grab for the roses by SOCKLESS CRITIC of COLOR ME SUAVE.  
Does RODEKI have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  So who's the team that's 
been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me. 
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Perhaps the warriors of VENETIAN CINQUE should 
take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  Like a pup with its tail 
between its legs, SHREDDERS scurried away from VENETIAN CINQUE.  Oh, the shame!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the 
arena.  A certain tavern in RODEKI would I avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  RODEKI, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The 
Dripping Blade.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir
