                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in RODEKI a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  And let's see, INGRETTE fought 
ROCK BREAKER and gained 21 points and contributed to DELVERS' 2-3-0.  ELIFAS KENT has 
lost to TALIB KWELI, falling 13 points, while helping make DELVERS a 2-3-0 turn.  
This week's Duelmaster bout was between PASDANOUS and our Duelmaster SEAFOOD RISOTTO, 
making a challenge.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and SEAFOOD 
RISOTTO 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 Warty Toad?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  FLAGG'S FIVE has cause to stand 
tall, as they were RODEKI's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team 
to beat.  And avoiding FLAGG'S FIVE more than any other team we find VENETIAN CINQUE. 
RODEKI, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, 
take notice that JURGENHALEN from DELVERS was RODEKI's most challenged warrior this 
turn.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Is it really true that RODEKI has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in RODEKI and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper--

Oh, gods, an oh-fer turn, with a death?  Is *this* what it means when a groundhog
sees his shadow?  If we'd KNOWN, we would have been out there with a parasol! --
Harby, Delvers

Huh.  Harby's upset about the oh-fer turn, and I do regret Igrina's death, but this
kind of thing happens, right?  I mean, those are not paper swords we're using!  And
*I* graduate, which is not something it had ever occurred to me would happen.  How
can this be ALL bad? -- Elifas Kent
P.S.  But I should remember not to eat seafood.
