                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of RODEKI!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  DOWNER caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested THE USEROUS MERCHANT and was awarded 
15 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, JOSEPH GEORGE put 
down BEER, causing him to lose 10 points of recognition in the process.  Not for 
nothing has 21 in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's 
proven his combat skill yet again.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the 
top team has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     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.  Some say a warrior is judged by the way 
he bears arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!  
     The girls are as pretty in RODEKI as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far 
off city calling to me.  I must away!  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.--

Scorpio -- Should I re-instate the draft? -- Coach

Ike -- Yes, the fight was short and one sided.  But hey, after I knocked you down you
stood right back up with dignity before surrendering.  That is at least more than you
team mate Long-n-Slim managed to do against Beer. -- E.O.

Two-three, and we're not impressed by the new man.  He's, well, ordinary in the
arena, and a real pest down in the mine.  Always knocking on the walls and tossing
bits of stone around. -- Harby
