                                      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.  And let's see, JURINE CASSEROLE 
fought LOUD LARRY and gained 22 points and contributed to SHEWISH BUFFET's 1-0-0.  
LOUD LARRY has lost to JURINE CASSEROLE, falling 19 points, while helping make WEIRD 
STUDENTS a 2-2-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and NOAH 
BODY 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 Welcome Wench?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  SHEWISH BUFFET has cause to stand tall, as 
they were RODEKI's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  
And avoiding SHEWISH BUFFET more than any other team we find GARBAGE PAIL KIDS II.  
RODEKI, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged 
warrior this turn was WEIRD STUDENTS' warrior LOUD LARRY.  More fighters challenged 
him than challenged the Duelmaster!   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  It's a dark day for DEALER'S CHOICE, seeing how NOAH BODY from 
GARBAGE PAIL KIDS II has not been revenged for killing ROULETTE.  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.   
     I like this place, RODEKI, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in RODEKI, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in RODEKI again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

                        to face unafraid, the challenges made,
