                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of JHELUM!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team DOGS OF WAR was unseated 
this week as TRIBAL COUNCIL moved up from 4th ranking to take the top spot with a 
3-0-0 record for the round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the 
corner!  Witness how this week TRIBAL COUNCIL went 3-0-0 to move up 3 in the 
rankings.  KID KOALA caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as it 
skillfully bested FENRIS KHAN and was awarded 29 points in recognition.  In one of 
the week's more notable duels, BESTLA put down BLIND BETSY, causing her to lose 13 
points of recognition in the process.  Although CUSSTER made a valiant effort, it did 
not suffice to topple the reign of victorious RUNNING DEER.  Would you believe that 
over half of the old women in JHELUM seem to feel that they could fight better than 
you gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In JHELUM "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  BUCK 65 has sworn to take up religion 
upon living to tell of its recent bout with the Dark Arena horrors.  A rare thing 
indeed!  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!   
     The girls are as pretty in JHELUM as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far 
off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is 
mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Shewish Buffet -- It seems unreasonable that I, Nestor Khan, a veritable demon,
should be offered... a Snack.  This is insufficient, and frankly insulting. -- Nestor
Khan, Darkest Champion of Jhelum

Da Vinci Code -- Codes are nonsense.  It's discipline that counts. -- Harlok of
Gwent, Master of Kung-Fu

Blind Betsy -- Why did you continue to resist?  I'm quite good company, actually. --
Geroge De Lee, Orc of the Day

Bloody Mary -- I think we should name a drin after you.  It'd make us a fortune. --
Balbonsigo of Mordant

Sam Hock -- Oh.  I thought you said HAM hock, and I was all for it. -- Dirty Joe,
Professional Beggar

Okay, now we have the clearly and unmistakeably labeled results of the mosr recent
tourney, and we salute the participants. -- Jorja and the Dogs of War, who, if they
don't watch out and turn in a better performance, are likely to become REAL dogs
before the year is out

Running Deer -- That's a misnomer if I ever saw one.  You didn't run AT ALL.  Well,
maybe TOWARD me.  Still, it's good that you have taken the title on a win.  That is
how it SHOULD be. -- Mat'ari

Crime and Punishment -- Let's face it, you're a has-been.  No one is interested in
what you've got to offer these days.  Give it up. -- Cusster

I don't know what the heck this Captured Orc was trying to do.  He kept throwing
himself at my feet and groveling.  That seems all WRONG for an orc. -- Blind Betsy

Bestla -- My record remains unbroken.  This is GOOD.  Really, it IS.  I'm going to
beat Life of Osksi and those other major-league losers, see if I don't! -- Warburton

Caer Salad -- Gee, that's the first time I ever ate a salad and liked it.  It musta
been the grasshoppers in it.  They added crunch. -- Dawe Gonnit
