                                      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, ANVIL fought CULT MEMBER and gained 
15 points and contributed to DELVERS' 2-3-0.  KARMIC KUDZU has lost to VEAL CHOP, 
falling 9 points, while helping make COLOR ME SUAVE a 0-1-0 turn.  The attempts to 
dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and NO PAIR 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 Welcome Wench?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  DELVERS 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 DELVERS more than any other team we find VENETIAN CINQUE.  RODEKI, are 
we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  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.   
     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 you see my quill in RODEKI again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Karmid Kudzu -- Finally, someone I can learn skills from. -- Suicide King

Joseph George -- Now that was a good fight.  Congratulations. -- OEJ

Khulbadd -- Weren't you like 4-1 a while back?  What are you resisting?...  The urge
to win? -- Suicide King

Is big and stupid the only thing we get here in Rodeki any more?  Or are the
randomizer gods pissed at me?  (comment from Scribe to follow.) -- the Dealer

     (requested comment)  Big and stupid seems common here these days.

Suicide King -- It's a new strategy:  Withhold Skills.  Doesn't always work, but
deeply satisfying when it does. -- Jurgenhalen
P.S.  Actually, all I can do is be a horrible example.  I don't have much in the way
of skills to teach.

Dealer -- Such a sweet-talker! -- Khulbadd

Deep Blu -- Well, that's ONE place I won't be eating.  Bleh. -- Khulbadd

No Pair -- Over my head, I don't even have a high card. -- Jurgenhalen

One Eyed Jack -- I stayed on your blind side. -- Joseph George

Fogo -- Huh? -- Rocksnail, not one of the great thinkers

Denny's -- Not my first choice, but not the last one, either. -- Anvil
