                                      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, FARRAH FAWCETT fought SILVER LADY 
and gained 16 points and contributed to CHUCK'S PINUPS' 2-1-0.  SILVER LADY has lost 
to FARRAH FAWCETT, falling 9 points, while helping make DELVERS a 2-3-0 turn.  The 
attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and STUD 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 Warty Toad?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  DITA VON TEESE of CHUCK'S PINUPS had better have a good 
reason for challenging down 8 points in a challenge which she won.  I thought DITA 
VON TEESE showed great skill and promise when she beat JOSEPH GEORGE.  All right, so 
I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  A brave warrior does not carry a 
red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in RODEKI, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Where does Novgorodny Vir get off saying there's "so much to report"?  We wish!

21 -- First, I have to learn some myself. -- Silver Lady

And one-four again, with Silver Lady defeating a standby.  Well, that makes a
beginning.  What's weird is that Joseph George got the Favorite title!  (pause to
read the fight)  Ah!  The scum-sympathy vote.  It's hard to imagine anyone having
sympathy for JG. -- Jurgenhalen
