                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in RODEKI since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with RAZZ?  He 
actually beat RODEKI's VETERAN MERCENARY, and walked away with 15 more points from 
the fight.  Major screwup at DELVERS.  JOSEPH GEORGE lost 8 points to SUICIDE KING.  
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe JOSEPH GEORGE will provide more easy wins...  
Try as he might, JURGENHALEN wasn't good enough at persuading STUD to step down from 
the Duelmaster's throne...  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on? 
I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.   
     Warriors of RODEKI unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Is it my 
imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so 
gloriously!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  RODEKI is 
a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Remember--a good 
fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Jurgenhalen -- Have faith, young lad--that fourteenth win could come at any time. --
Stud

Bonsur Butcher -- Congrats on those two parry skills. -- Omaha

Stud -- Hmm, three seventeens?  That's a tough hand to beat. -- Harby

The Dealer -- "Smoke and mirrors" does seem like the best explanation. -- Harby

We salute the tourney participants, with a special nod to Wellington, tourney victor.
-- Harby and the Delvers

One Eyed Jack -- You've got a brother in your pocket, don't you?  Jacks or better
type of thing. -- Jurgenhalen

Suicide King -- I didn't want your blood on me.  Blood is so not-cool.  At least,
when it's on the outside.  Inside, doing its job, that's different. -- Anvil

Razz -- Damn.  I'd hoped to give you a razz-berry, but it doesn't seem to be
happening.  At least, not today. -- Joseph George

You know, I expected better of Rocksnail than for it to lose to the Userous Merchant.
-- Harby
P.S.  Six minutes, and only one skill.

Deep Blu -- I find it hard to imagine blue food.  Blueberries, blue cheese, but
that's about it. -- Khulbadd, not planning to eat there
