                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon RODEKI, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  DELVERS had cause to celebrate, after JURGENHALEN got 
20 points by beating THE EDGE.  THE EDGE certainly had a baffled expression on his 
face, after losing to JURGENHALEN and losing 20 points in the process!  Those who 
hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by TALIB KWELI, of INTELLECTS OF HIPHOP, 
who despite a 11-22-0 couldn't overcome RODEKI's Number 1.  Word has it one team in 
RODEKI is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it 
works.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst 
the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of COLOR ME SUAVE, alone and unchallenged.  
The warriors of COLOR ME SUAVE found their efforts at combat frustrated as FLAGG'S 
FIVE apparently had more important things to do than fight.  Is it charming 
personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, ARMORED 
ECHO is the most challenged warrior.  As a confidence booster, RIMA ADLER challenged 
ARMORED ECHO, down 16 points.  Do you also slay vicious rodents in your spare time, 
RIMA ADLER?  Warriors of RODEKI!  Do you wish your reputations tainted by the base 
challenge of RIMA ADLER?   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  A moment of silence 
for DARWIN, who died an untimely death at the hands of SLASH.  In the spirit of 
revenge, we call upon WORLD BLADES 10 to act!  Charity is unknown in RODEKI, and 
rightly so.  SHREDDERS exacted their revenge against WORLD BLADES 10.  Oh hard!  that 
to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond my 
control, I must take my leave of this place.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of 
writing Spyreports for RODEKI?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

World Blades 10 -- Welcome.  Hope you decide to stay around. It's a fun little town,
this Rodeki. -- Flagg

Gaven Adler -- YOU are devastated, think how *I* feel!  I have a WINNING RECORD, and
it isn't going away!  This is beyond belief. -- Elifas Kent, stunned but happy

Talib Kweli -- All well and good for Elifas to boast, but YOU aren't helping MY
record.  You're making me look BAD.  Don't do that. -- Karligrena

Slash -- Urk!  Not the suspenders! -- Isengalen, grabbing for his pants

M. Chardinee is a silly man. -- Igrina Sockinette

each other! -- Jurgenhalen
