                                      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.  And let's see, IGRINA SOCKINETTE fought EMBEZZLING 
SCRIBE and gained 11 points and contributed to DELVERS' 3-2-0.  ISENGALEN has lost to 
C-PAPPY, falling 3 points, while helping make DELVERS a 3-2-0 turn.  The attempts to 
dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and SOCKLESS CRITIC remains RODEKI's top warrior 
for another turn.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped 
under the table at The Dripping Blade?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  I also notice that the DELVERS stable 
was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on RODEKI, what are you afraid of?  And 
guess who avoided DELVERS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was VENETIAN 
CINQUE.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was COLOR ME 
SUAVE's warrior ARMORED ECHO.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the 
Duelmaster!   
     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.  A brave warrior does not carry a 
red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in RODEKI, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in RODEKI again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe
