                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of BONSUR!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team BEACH BABES was unseated 
this week as SHEWISH PICNIC moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with a 
4-1-1 record for the round.  MOBILE CITADEL caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested SUMMER SUNNE and was awarded 17 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, MOBILE CITADEL put 
down SUMMER SUNNE, causing her to lose 12 points of recognition in the process.  The 
city has turned out in honor of CREAMED MALCORN, for with his arena victory he may 
now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  Informants "close" to the city 
champion have told me that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  
Watch out!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city BONSUR.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  SHEWISH PICNIC is feared.  This much I can say.  Methinks 
more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better part of last 
week avoiding SHEWISH PICNIC.  Indeed it was SENTINELS.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Strange what qualities come forth in the face of certain doom.  
CANNED SAVRADESE has the town astir with the news of his Dark Arena victory!  
Cruelly, SILVER PINNACLE of SENTINELS has slain the lesser ranked SMILING FACE.  Word 
already flies around town that JOHN BROWN plans a bloodfeud!  Dark alleys may hide 
both secrets and assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  
Keep vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in BONSUR as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till next we 
meet remember:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by 
the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Thanks for noticing, Beach Babes!  As it happens, this was my 7th consecutive Dark
Arena kill, which I believe is some kind of record.  The boss says I have to keep at
it until I reach 10 kills or graduate.  If I fail, he has committed to entering me in
the Dead Challengers tournament for the next 20 years. -- Canned Savradese

Oh, gosh!  Seven dead in the Dark Arena.  That's worse than six  because this is
arena number seven!  It's got a special message of Doom for us.

Bulls-Eye -- Of COURSE the Bull needs to see!  How else can he tell when people are
teasing him with their silly red capes? -- Surfin' Sara

Mobile Citadel -- Hanging out in the sun is the BEST.  At least, if it's over sixty
degrees and under... oh, maybe eighty. -- Summer Sunne

So, THREE times now Canned Savradese has returned alive from the Dark Arena.  Surely
he has proven himself? -- Surfin' Sara and the rest of the Babes

Wow!  A five-oh turn for us!  We don't see THOSE very often.  Got to make the most of
it.  Personals for everybody!  Even the standbys. -- Surfin' Sara

We salute the participants in the recent mail-in tourney with extra SPECIAL smiles
for our TWO tourney CHAMPIONS, Rockwell and Obranur.  And a lesser smile for that
peculiar Maca-Raunchy Salad, tourney victor.  We did not care for that salad, you
know?  It was just WEIRD. -- Surfin' Sara and the Beach Babes

Mobile Citadel -- Well, that was TECHNICALLY unfair to you, but some things just
don't show when you only look at the numbers.  I thought it was pretty good.  And I
had the advantage of being able to draw on the crowd's breath, did wonders for my
wind.  Good stuff. -- Surfin' Sara

Rondo the Black, Mercenary of Long Standing -- My thanks for that win.  I truly
enjoyed it AND the title. -- Charlie Tuna
P.S.  I think people should call me Charles now.  Charles the First, maybe.

Bulls-Eye -- Maybe you need shades?  Um, sunglasses--we call them shades. -- Summer
Sunne

Arsene' Shin Blackheart, Convicted Assassin -- You should be ASHAMED of yourself. --
Wavin' Wanda

M. Fellinisthare' Chardinee -- Did I correctly hear you asking me for a DATE? -- Oma
Brella, startled
P.S.  Would you accept a fig?  We have trouble growing dates here.
