                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in RODEKI a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  LONG-N-SLIM has lost to DOWNER, 
falling 11 points, while helping make THE SOVEREIGN a 2-3-0 turn.  The attempts to 
dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and 21 remains RODEKI's top warrior for another 
turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The 
Warty Toad uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  Well, sports fans, take notice that JOSEPH GEORGE from 
DELVERS was RODEKI's most challenged warrior this turn.  In a brave attempt, EARLY 
OUT from DEALER'S CHOICE challenged up 24 points to fight JOSEPH GEORGE from the 
DELVERS stable.  EARLY OUT perhaps got hers just desserts, seeing as she won victory 
over JOSEPH GEORGE and ended up with 98 recognition points.  JADE of THE SOVEREIGN 
had better have a good reason for challenging down 14 points in a challenge which she 
lost.  I thought JADE showed great skill and promise when she was subdued by GO FISH. 
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.  We'd like to remind certain teams 
not to rob the graves of their enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered 
rude.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in RODEKI and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in RODEKI again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

So... The Sovereign declares war on us, then he doesn't show up.  He must be French.

set-up job. -- Harby, not going anywhere

Three-two.  We can work with that. -- Harby

Beer -- Oh, hey, of COURSE I devastated you.  I do that to any brew I can get hold
of. -- Joseph George

Pan -- All you had to do was smile. -- Anvil

Go Fish -- Didn't we just DO this?  And now the pond is frozen. -- Redcap

And a pair of worthless standbys.  Bah. -- Downer and Silver Lady
