                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly KALTOS games.  Former top team PAPER MARIO was 
unseated this week as TEAM CHAOS ELITE moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 4-1-0 record for the round.  ALICE IN CHAINS caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and was awarded 16 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, WRATHCHILD put down 
GERDIG IBBINS, causing him to lose 8 points of recognition in the process.  As is 
fitting, the most sought after warrior on the challenge boards this week was none 
other than Duelmaster TWINK itself.  Most watched of the fights this week, the 
spotlight was on WURM KIN as he bore arms against the Dark Arena Challenge of 
reigning Duelmaster TWINK.  Not for nothing has TWINK in the past laid claim to the 
Duelmaster's throne, and this week it's proven its combat skill yet again.  Would you 
believe that over half of the old women in KALTOS seem to feel that they could fight 
better than you gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In KALTOS "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when 
this week's challenge seeking began.  THE MIDDLE WAY 5 is feared.  This much I can 
say.  Apparently the stalwarts of TEAM CHAOS ELITE are catching the bulk of jests 
down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  A match that 
raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that IRON MAIDEN posted a 
challenge against the more highly recognized HELENE JUSTE.  The results, you ask?  
Well, the firebrand IRON MAIDEN was overcame by HELENE JUSTE.  Remember warriors, 
this is the discipline of steel.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Strange what qualities come forth in the 
face of certain doom.  TWINK has the town astir with the news of its Dark Arena 
victory!  Was I the only one shocked to see the well respected fighter FEDERER 
(3-1-2) appear on the sands of the Dark Arena?  He is now dead.  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!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  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 - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a 
different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Jeri -- My debut in my new sling-back pumps and you do THAT to me? -- Bombette

Gretzky -- You were nothing that a good goalie couldn't handle.  Know what I mean?
(wink) -- Twink

Alice In Chains -- Perhaps that was you clanking rather than me.  I enjoyed the "W".
-- Clank

Elinde Goss -- But I am a nice golem. -- Twink (all in tears from the racial slur)

Orverd Quill - Mind your flirtatious words!  Wander too close and you may learn first
hand what an Iron Maiden can do to flesh. -- Iron Maiden

Bombette -- Listen, believe me when I say that Big Hair is not YOU. -- Jeri Lough

Iron Maiden -- I don't see how you can stand that steel corset.  Mind you, it really
shows off your shape, but how do you BREATHE? -- Gerdig Ibbins

Convicted Assassin?  Bah. -- Orverd Quill

Oskan Steeltooth, Khalhums Dwarf -- Ouch. -- Elinde Goss
P.S.  What else was there to say?

Another Convicted Assassin, or the same one again, it makes no difference.  Pathetic.
-- Helene Juste

Twink -- Do you do dishes?  If so, I will concede your niceness. -- Helene Juste

Twink -- If so, why am I all blues and blacks? -- Jeri Lough

Bombette -- Nothing like versatility, I guess.  And grenades are easier to pack than
bombs. -- Jeri Lough

Our congratulations to Twink, finally! -- Jorja and the Middle Way

I have not been receiving my physical turns in a reliable manner lately.  If there
are diplos with the turns that go missing, they're gone for good.  So if you send me
a diplo and do not see an acknowledgement of receipt in the personals, know that I
have not gotten it (yet).  If you have email, contact me at Livia AT reality DOT com.
If you don't have email, keep trying with the diplos.  We are working on this
problem. -- the Scribe/Jorja/Leeta
P.S.  If you email me, put "Re DM" on the subject line.
