                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
RODEKI.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for NOAH BODY, who flew up 45 points in the rankings after 
mashing SLAM like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't 
pay to walk out on the sands.  ANVIL was overcame by BEER and drops 8 points.  Well, 
everybody's pal PAN moved hers record to 16-3-1 by defeating KHALHUMS DWARF in the 
Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 4 recognition points.  4 out of 5 gladiators 
surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid DELVERS, please raise you hand.  Wow. 
Does RODEKI really have that many liars?  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling 
your rasberries, cause THE SOVEREIGN beats feet every time DELVERS smiles at them.  
Try farming, eh?  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, JADE would be 
president.  Although it may be a contest she doesn't want to win.  Challenging down 
17 points was EARLY OUT.  Pretty soon she'll be using two shields and selling 'T.P.:  
The only way to clean up' pins.  Here is a definition of happiness:  JOSEPH GEORGE 
overcame EARLY OUT to go from 91 to 111 recognition points.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Big deal, so JADE got mashed in the Dark 
Arena.  With hers face she was more at home with the trolls than with us. (Waka 
waka).  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take your ally in the arena with 
you and see what happens.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  Hasta la 
bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

Jade -- You fell on your Butt with the utmost skill. -- Go Fish

Coach -- *MY* fault?  I wasn't dealing that hand. -- Harby

Two-three, and nothing spectacular about them, either.  This is obviously the time to
hunker down in the mine and see what useful minerals we can wrench out, because the
arena isn't going to support these guys. -- Harby

Alright, Lady Coach and Harbecsha, once Long-N-Slim graduates or dies trying; I'm
out.  I can't seem to catch a break here. -- Scorpio
