                                      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.  The boys at THE 
SOVEREIGN are walking tall, as they are ranked 2nd on their first try!  Going for the 
Duelmaster soon?  DEALER'S CHOICE had cause to celebrate, after 21 got 17 points by 
beating ROCKSNAIL.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice 
more, after losing 20 points to VENOMOUS CONCUBINE.  (Discrete enough, RAZZ?) 
JURGENHALEN found out that RODEKI isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be 
Duelmaster here!  So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week and 
ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  My love of complete Spyreports dictates that I 
note the mismatched fight, DITA VON TEESE and JOSEPH GEORGE.  Are CHUCK'S PINUPS 
unwilling to engage in a fair fight?  I thought DITA VON TEESE showed great skill and 
promise when she was bested by JOSEPH GEORGE.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big 
deal!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the 
arena.  A certain tavern in RODEKI would I avoid!   
     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.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for RODEKI?  
On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

I lost to Rocksnail!  Oh, by the gods, please don't D.A. me! -- 21

Jurgy -- You didn't think I was in trouble, did you? -- Stud

Venemous Concubine twice and Khalhums Dwarf...  Delvers, Pinups, get your butts up
here and play! -- Dealer's Choice

Two-three.  Huh.  Amazing that Rocksnail beat 21, since the Snail can't count higher
than three, and it's a little uncertain on that.  Amazing that Stud hasn't graduated,
too.  I didn't know there was a bias against lungers.  Maybe you shouldn't be beating
the Arenamaster at cards all the time?  Could be some kind of payback at work,
although I didn't think old Farin would be that petty. -- Jurgenhalen
