                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
RODEKI brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see RAZZ win a fight and gain 18 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, BONSUR 
BUTCHER beat OMAHA and OMAHA lost 15 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, RODEKI may be getting bland, as STUD stays top dog in 
the city.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You 
want to know what's new, don't you, RODEKI?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  What's the big D?  DELVERS was the most avoided team?  
Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this 
mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was DARKHOLM.  Ha ha ha 
ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, ROCKSNAIL was this turn's most challenged 
warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess 
what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the RODEKI arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that 
before I leave the fine city of RODEKI.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in 
your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Dealer -- We're, well, not SATISFIED, but we'll take your guys over some other more
bloodthirsty ones we've known. -- Harby

Stud -- I got myself studded boots to wear into the arena, but they didn't help. --
Jurgenhalen

Suicide King -- Proof, if such were needed, that those who even CONTEMPLATE suicide
are WEAK. -- Joseph George, not weak

....Except in the head. -- Harby

Razz -- Um, I'm not so good at that kind of thing.  People have played cards ON the
anvil (not when it was in proper use!) but never WITH it.  I was never any good at
games, that's why I got a job as an anvil. -- Anvil

I've heard of "the magical force of naming" as it applies to some arena warriors, but
this seems... extreme.  Though he IS a convenient mobile anvil. -- Harby

Omaha -- I was there once.  I didn't like it much.  They were unsympathetic to orcs.
-- Khulbadd

It only needed this:  Rocksnail, 7-3-0,60, loses, was SAVAGELY DEFEATED, by the
Fratsfa Slave?  Gods. -- Harby
