                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly RODEKI games.  My praise to DELVERS for their 4-1-0 
week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving of notice!  
KARLIGRENA caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully 
bested ARMORED ECHO and was awarded 27 points in recognition.  In one of the week's 
more notable duels, SLASH put down TALIB KWELI, causing him to lose 19 points of 
recognition in the process.  Due to his absence and inability to defend the throne, 
SEAFOOD RISOTTO has lost the title of Duelmaster.  This time victory fell to the 
grasp of the usurper.  All hail C-PAPPY, Duelmaster of RODEKI!  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 FLAGG'S FIVE.  At least, most blades in town are 
looking to avoid them.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was 
that spent the better part of last week avoiding FLAGG'S FIVE.  Indeed it was COLOR 
ME SUAVE.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Walk proud, warriors of SHREDDERS!  By 
striking down HIPPO HUNTRESS you have avenged the honor of your dead.  Your virtue is 
known to all in RODEKI.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with 
fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     The girls are as pretty in RODEKI as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  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

I'm not sure when it happened, but I kind of like the recent invigoration Rodeki has
enjoyed.  Welcome back, Flagg, Harby, and Android Dungeon.  If you'd all kindly have
your warriors leave their weapons beneath their beds when they come to the arena, my
warriors would appreciate it. -- Suave

Swirling Mass -- Bummer. -- MNF

Seafood -- Looks like I get one final stab at you, but the old man's trying, too.  If
you could teach me a dozen skills or so, I'll get my invite and stop clogging the
ranks.  It's a sacrifice, but I'm willing to make it. -- Armored Echo

     Such altruism!

Buri -- Sorry your replacements suck.  Rodeki's been kinder to me than any other
arena; perhaps they separate recruits by which guild house they're addressed to? --
Suave

Elifas Kent -- My sleeping disorder doesn't affect my fighting ability because I
don't sleep in the arena.  Duh. -- C-Pappy

Hippo Huntress -- Sounds like a plan, but we'd better have more than one delicious
cheese sandwich.  I'm rather fond of cheese sandwiches myself. -- Jurgenhalen
P.S.  With alfalfa sprouts.  Yeah, I know, that's weird, but I had a cheese and
sprouts on very dark multi-grain bread at an impressionable age.  Besides, think of
the fiber!

Rima Adler -- You're confusing me with my teammate, Igrina.  She's an orc, I am not. 
Although I will admit that sometimes I've wished... all that SHAPE, you know?  I
could stand a little shape. -- Karligrena

Common Sense -- Always a weak point for me. -- Isengalen
P.S.  I'm totally stunned at the way you sucked those skills out of me.

Trugoy the Dove -- Not very dove-like of you. -- Elifas Kent

Assassins, bah.  Humbug, too. -- Karligrena

The Venomous Concubine was JEALOUS, because I've got more contour than she has.
Skinny wench. -- Igrina Sockinette

Slash -- Do you know what they used in the Infirmary to put me back together?  DUCK
tape!  I might turn INTO a Duck, and that would be disgusting. -- Jurgenhalen
