                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail RODEKI!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, PAN fought ANVIL and gained 16 points and contributed to 
DEALER'S CHOICE's 5-0-0.  LONG-N-SLIM has lost to BEER, falling 5 points, while 
helping make THE SOVEREIGN a 0-4-0 turn.  This week's Duelmaster bout was between 
JOSEPH GEORGE and our Duelmaster 21, making a challenge.  The attempts to dethrone 
the Duelmaster have failed, and 21 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 Swinging Aardvark?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  I also notice that the DELVERS 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on RODEKI, what are you afraid of?  
And guess who avoided DELVERS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was THE 
SOVEREIGN.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that ANVIL from DELVERS 
was RODEKI's most challenged warrior this turn.  In a brave attempt, IKE NIGHTSHIELD 
from THE SOVEREIGN challenged up 20 points to fight EARLY OUT from the DEALER'S 
CHOICE stable.  IKE NIGHTSHIELD perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he was 
overcame by EARLY OUT and ended up with 42 recognition points.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that RODEKI has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  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
