                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of RODEKI.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Practice pays for 
KARMIC KUDZU, who pummelled CRAZY PINEAPPLE, to pocket 20 points.  NO PAIR certainly 
had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to KUNG-FU MASTER and losing 14 
points in the process!  Can you believe it?  VEAL MARSALA apparently has better 
things to do as RODEKI's Duelmaster than show up and fight!  In RODEKI, nothing is 
permanent (except Death), and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, KARMIC KUDZU.  So 
who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds 
like a PR stunt to me.   
     So much to report, so little time!  If challenges were horses, KHULBADD could 
open up a fast food joint!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  
Congratulations, KARMIC KUDZU.  The manager of DEALER'S CHOICE should have sent CRAZY 
PINEAPPLE to the Dark Arena for having a 9-8-0 long ago.  Ask not a spymaster for 
counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious 
stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in RODEKI is the highlight of my life.  My fingers 
tire and I fear my incessant prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable 
character.  RODEKI, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at 
The Warty Toad.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir
