                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of RODEKI!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  NO PAIR caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested KARMIC KUDZU and was awarded 16 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, NO PAIR put down 
KARMIC KUDZU, causing him to lose 13 points of recognition in the process.  Although 
M. CHARDINEE made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of 
victorious VEAL MARSALA.  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!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In RODEKI "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat 
in RODEKI these days is COLOR ME SUAVE.  At least, most blades in town are looking to 
avoid them.  Apparently the stalwarts of VENETIAN CINQUE are catching the bulk of 
jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Loose talk 
at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters 
are after KARMIC KUDZU.  Watch your back!  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the 
games this week, it seems that SUICIDE KING posted a challenge against the more 
highly recognized KHULBADD.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand SUICIDE KING 
overcame KHULBADD.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears 
arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in RODEKI.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  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:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are 
angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Scribe -- I would have used the quill, but it would have been a stretch to blame the
ink... lol. -- The Dealer

Editor -- Back in the day there was no data base.  Ed rolled the fights using chicken
bones, and sent the results on a stone tablet...but yes, please call me. -- The
Dealer

     We've been upgraded.  For our own good, you know.  Now the manager list is a
     coffee-stained notebook beside my computer.

The Dark One -- Thank you, I bet Vengeance has a few fight now. -- The Dealer

The Dealer -- Eh?  Did we say anything about scum?  Ah, I see we did.  But it was in
reference to Isengalen's favorites (low/very low), not anything to do with your
gladiators. -- Harby, Delvers

Damn, I lost to the Khalhums Dwarf?  That's moderately embarrassing. -- Jurgenhalen

Two wins over standbys, and then... the new guys.  I don't know what things are
coming to around here, but I really don't see either of them being much use down in
the mine, so they'll have to gladiate. -- Harby
