     "This piece of bak-ta is spy!" Harbinger exclaimed to Grimwood, manager of the 
Skull Squadron stable. She then poked Rao hard on the back of his shoulder.
     Grimwood roughly translated 'bak-ta', as meaning horse excrement, from the 
Rirorni horsemen tongue of Rathiri. He watched as Harbinger and the Rirorni Mystic 
stood flanking Rao, who sat in a chair. His eyes glanced nervously to his two 
stablemates with a look of concern. 
     "I've extended an open invitation to any Rirorni coming to Rocanis a place in my 
gladiatorial stable."
     "He's one of Warlord Bannok's men," the Rirorni Mystic said.
     "Your proof?" Grimwood asked.
     Harbinger and the Rirorni Mystic looked to each other in silence for several 
heartbeats. Harbinger's brow furrowed in anger. 
     "Don't you think it odd that Bannok arrives at Rocanis' doorstep with a thousand 
Rirorni and a day later he shows up," Harbinger said and kicked Rao's chair.
     Grimwood clasped his hands together and then leaned his elbows on his desk. "Did 
you see Bannok's forces attack General Pol's army, which you yourself were part?"
     Harbinger said, "No, they weren't displaying their banners, but I just know--" 
     Grimwood interrupted, "Did either of you see Rao personally in the attack on 
General Pol's army?" 
     "No," they said in unison.
     "Then you have no evidence that he's a spy."
     Harbinger growled in frustration. 
     Rao cleared his throat. "I've tried to explain before. I'm only here to train as 
a gladiator and if the gods of the plains allow, become the Duelmaster of Rocanis."
     "Shut it," Harbinger snarled.
     Grimwood held up his hand for silence. "Rao hasn't shown any inclination of being 
a spy, if anything he's trained harder than anyone else and his 2-0 start is 
commendable. He's first on the sands training in the morning and the last one to leave 
in the evening. Considering, your recent loss, Harbinger, I'd suggest following your 
stablemate's example."
     "I can't believe you're so-"
     Grimwood interrupted, "You are all free to leave my office."
     Rao rose, glanced to his two accusing stablemates, and then nodded to Grimwood. 
He then left the office, followed closely by the Rirorni Mystic, and closed the door.
     Harbinger remained, placed her hands on her hips, and stared hard at Grimwood.
     "If there's nothing further, you are dismissed too."
     Harbinger rolled her eyes, snorted, and turned to leave, but as she touched the 
door's latch, Grimwood said, "Keep an eye on him." 		 	   		  

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ROCANIS?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  ROCANIS saw the first turn for WEIRD 
STUDENTS, a 5-0-0, and some teams are scared, others are too arrogant to notice.  
Take note friends, take note.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see BLACK 
STEEL win a fight and gain 24 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, BLACK STEEL beat HONDO 
OHNAKA and HONDO OHNAKA lost 22 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out with 
the old, in with the new, as SNAKE BITE takes the Title and last week's bar tab from 
the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else 
do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
MEDAL OF HONOR A11, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most 
avoided team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And it looks like SKULL 
SQUADRON avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask 
me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, RAO was this turn's most challenged 
warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  I guess I can give a little credit to 
MYTORI PRIEST of SKULL SQUADRON for challenging up by 22 to AHSOKA TANO.  MYTORI 
PRIEST lost to get 64 points of recognition.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only 
shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the ROCANIS arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that 
before I leave the fine city of ROCANIS.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds 
are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens
