                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of JHELUM!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  DUNN caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested FUR BALL and was awarded 18 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, DUNN put down FUR BALL, 
causing him to lose 14 points of recognition in the process.  Due to his absence and 
inability to defend the throne, DIAPERED ZALGOR has lost the title of Duelmaster.  
This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail PETE MASTIFF, 
Duelmaster of JHELUM!  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!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in JHELUM these days is DUDES.  At least, most blades in town are 
looking to avoid them.  Apparently the stalwarts of FAUX TIDES are catching the bulk 
of jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Loose 
talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many 
fighters are after JOSEPH.  Watch your back!  At the gambling halls I have started to 
bet money on CHANCE CORBIN.  He has got the courage it takes.  Witness his challenge 
this turn against GRIFFEY!  1 points of newly earned recognition and a dose of my 
admiration is what CHANCE CORBIN must now weigh against the defeat which resulted.  A 
match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that ONE EYED MACK 
posted a challenge against the more highly recognized LEONIDAS.  The results, you 
ask?  Well, the firebrand ONE EYED MACK was defeated by LEONIDAS.  Remember warriors, 
this is the discipline of steel.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  
In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in JHELUM.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of 
a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  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

Griffy -- Ouch!  Geez it was an accident ok?  Ease up, I didn't really mean all that
stuff I said about redlegs...and I think I'm going to take that advice and avoid you
for sure.  Well avenged. -- Bastor

Dunn -- You in my way big man. *brrrph!*  Me thinks you too slow.  Scared of Mack,
mmh.  More ALE! -- Mack

All -- *places a sign in the square reading:  Gladiator for hire.  Well mannered,
clean, trustworthy, respectable and has more common sense than the whole lot of
fighters for Faux Tides*  Tao shakes his head hearing Mack's boast form the inn.
"Uncivilized gluttonous lout.  I can't stand it.  Poor Gavin, he's a good lad." --
Brother Tao

Gavin Rule -- My stable, of course, is named after the oldest franchise in baseball,
and Rose is the hit king.  He had wagered on Bastor and was prepared to take a fall.
I've heard rumors that our Arena Master also bet on your warrior and let the fight go
longer than usual.  If anyone else has any suspicions, perhaps an investigation is in
order.  We cannot permit an A.M. with a gambling problem to continue.  Sound off. --
Deep Thought

Diapered Zalgor -- I don't know if this challenge is an honor or not.  Hmm.  I choose
to consider it so.  But with your tourney experience, surely you could have taught me
more? -- Leonidas

I don't know if I should plead for the poor battered Veteran Mercenary to be allowed
to retire, or view with unease the coming of a younger and more vigorous one, hmm?
Not that we're likely to get ANY kind of changes here. -- Pete Mastiff

The Venomous Vixen is definitely someone to get rid of.  Can't we send her back to
Xochithlan?  She's dangerous, and I don't mean in the arena, either.  Well, dangerous
enough there, too. -- Lovarno, too young to be mixing with women like that

Fur Ball -- I was going to make some comment, but I spent so long coughing that I
forgot it. -- Joseph

Chance Corbin -- If you can't handle the two together, drop one!  Cheese, man, that's
pathetic. -- Red Hammer
P.S.  You must have a strange statistical profile.
P.P.S.  Tell your manager that my manager has bought some stamps, which is a step in
the right direction.

Deep Thought -- Well...yes, the moon was going on full, I think. -- Jorja

31 May 2008
Any and all who live in the 805 area, I would like for you to call me so we can get
together for BBQ's, softball games, and so on.  It has been a while since the last
get together (several years).  It was a blast and I am sure the next one will be
also.  We just have to do it.  All alliances are welcome.  Just because my warriors
leave your warrior beaten and bloody in defeat does not mean we can't have a beer or
five together.  I'll even buy the first round.  So call 805-588-3419 and ask for Dave
a.k.a. Misfit, former member of the Green and Purple Polka Dot Alliance (GAPPDA).
