                                      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, TERMINAL SAPPER fought JURGENHALEN 
and gained 20 points and contributed to FLAGG'S FIVE's 4-1-0.  INGRETTE has lost to 
ROCK BREAKER, falling 2 points, while helping make DELVERS a 1-4-0 turn.  This week's 
Duelmaster bout was between ISENGALEN and our Duelmaster SEAFOOD RISOTTO, making a 
challenge.  Defending his title for another turn, SEAFOOD RISOTTO kept DELVERS' 
warrior, ISENGALEN, from claiming the throne.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster 
that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Dripping Blade?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the FLAGG'S FIVE stable 
was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on RODEKI, what are you afraid of?  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?  The most challenged warrior this 
turn was DELVERS' warrior KARLIGRENA.  More fighters challenged her than challenged 
the Duelmaster!  Tsk, tsk, tsk.  HIPPO HUNTRESS, does your manager know you're 
challenging down 26 points to fight KARLIGRENA from DELVERS?  It pains me to see 
warriors take advantage of the system like this.  HIPPO HUNTRESS subdued KARLIGRENA, 
as if it surprises anyone.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their enemies.  
You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in RODEKI again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe
