                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of RODEKI!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always 
around the corner!  Witness how this week CHUCK'S PINUPS went 2-3-0 to move up 4 in 
the rankings.  HEIDI VAN HORNE caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission 
as she skillfully bested EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and was awarded 16 points in recognition.  
In one of the week's more notable duels, CAPTURED ORC put down ROCKSNAIL, causing it 
to lose 3 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has STUD in the past 
laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his combat skill yet 
again.  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!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers 
the miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     The girls are as pretty in RODEKI as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed 
a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
Till we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms 
no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Jurgenhalen -- You did it, your 14th win, congardulations.  Now you'll be off to AD.
Where you will be feared by all... Oh wait, you didn't get your invite.  Not to worry
I'm sure that after you take the throne from Stud, they will demand your skills in
Darkholm. -- the Dealer

Heard any oppenents roar lately?

One-four today, and two of the losses were to STANDBYS!  Khulbadd (which means
"Really Bad" in orcish) lost to the FRATSFA SLAVE.  This is embarrassing.  At least
now I've got fourteen wins, and I can graduate any time now.  I'm ready! --
