     Hot Dog Gal, fare thee well, sister of the kitchen.  Go and show them how to cook 
on the Isle.  And Big Boss Man, we packed a lunch for you, too.  Least we can do.  And 
now, back in the chair, I'm going to have a grilling station set up near the throne.  
Pound Cake will make fresh bread and cupcakes.  She has awesome cleavage and can cook!
     Eat hearty!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of TRANSEL!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team OINGO BOINGO was 
unseated this week as SOVEREIGN ONES moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 2-3-0 record for the round.  Did only my eyes note the 4-1-0 record which EAT 
EM RAW BUG managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a record will draw 
challengers!  'MARICAN SINGLE caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission 
as she skillfully bested ROMIAD FLINDERO and was awarded 15 points in recognition.  
In one of the week's more notable duels, BANANA SPLIT put down PARAGON, causing him 
to lose 10 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has BEEF TARTAR in 
the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his combat 
skill yet again.  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this 
week, the whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In TRANSEL "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and 
it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after B.B..  Watch your back!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  B.B. must hold silent, for this week he 
was humbled in the arena by a successful Bloodfeud won by ZALADANE of SOVEREIGN ONES. 
Hail ZALADANE for thy victory!  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears 
arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in TRANSEL.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I 
keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till 
we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no 
one; a lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
