                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of JHELUM!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  SHADOW caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and was awarded 15 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, DARKCLAW put down 
WISE OWL, causing him to lose 14 points of recognition in the process.  Although 
CRIME AND PUNISHMENT made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of 
victorious BRAVE 2.  Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he 
never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In JHELUM "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  JHELUM, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the 
names of thy guilds is COLLEGE RADIO #4, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the 
weekly duels.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent 
the better part of last week avoiding COLLEGE RADIO #4.  Indeed it was TRIBAL 
COUNCIL.  RUNNING DEER must really be harboring a grudge against the SAVAGE HORDE 
guild!  Merciless, 43 challenged down RAIGHNALL points this week to duel with he.  
Surprising everyone, RAIGHNALL won victory over RUNNING DEER, earning 21 points of 
recognition in the process!  A knave's just desserts are the sweetest victory.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  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 JHELUM.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  More than a sharp eye must I 
keep, indeed a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari 
await me!  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

Our congratulations to Running Deer. -- Jorja and the Dogs of War

Kai-Ghan -- Can you believe that?  The steward INSULTED me.  ME!  He thought I
"didn't have it in me" to defeat you.  What a fool.  There's so much chance in any
fight, ANYBODY, well, nearly anybody, might defeat anybody ELSE of near the same
rank.  Huh.  He was probably betting against me and lost money.  A fool. -- Blind
Betsy

I feel nothing but contempt for the Userous Merchant.  Well, maybe a little more than
that--deep resentment, perhaps.  The man's a cheat. -- Warburton

The Fratsfa Slave isn't Fratsfan, which just annoys the heck out of me. -- Dawe
Gonnit

Parachute Cat -- AND, you landed on your feet.  That's just amazing. -- Fenris Khan

This Convicted Thief person is easy peasy, isn't he? -- Bunker Bill
