                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly KALTOS games.  GERDIG IBBINS caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested VENOMOUS CONCUBINE and was 
awarded 16 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, DANGEROUS 
CRIMINAL put down OVERKILL, causing it to lose 10 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 BOMBETTE herself.  This time out MOON CHILD made 
hers bid for the throne as she challenged BOMBETTE in an all out contest of skill for 
possession of the title!  Not for nothing has BOMBETTE in the past laid claim to the 
Duelmaster's throne, and this week she's proven hers combat skill yet again.  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 KALTOS these days is THE MIDDLE WAY 5.  At least, most blades in town 
are looking to avoid them.  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.  
     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!   
     The girls are as pretty in KALTOS 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

Elinde Goss -- Did you feel the full moon's gravity pulling on your brain?  Maybe
not, but it showed since you were a bit off balance from the start.  Finally!  I got
you this time.  One win, one loss and nine learns in two fights; we should do this
more often.  Just have to wait for the next full moon to come. -- Moon Child

Jeri -- I continue to enjoy our little sessions.  My nails are looking better every
time.  (wink) -- Bombette
P.S.  Insulted you?  Why, I would never....

Alice In Chains -- I was distracted! -- Slinky

Paper Marios!  Get focused on what is important!  Wins! -- Luigi

Bombette -- Wow, you blew up in my face that time!  Ouch. -- Jeri Lough

Moon Child -- Your dedication in winning the fight is a fine thing, of course, but
how, in the midst of all that and with less than a complete minute to work in, did
you also manage to learn five skills?  I grant you I'm a superb teacher, but still,
that's really packing it in. -- Elinde Goss

Iron Maiden -- You need to loosen up a little, you're too rigid. -- Gerdig Ibbins
P.S.  Your fighting could use some work, too.  Some kind of defensive effort of some
sort, parry, dodge, whatever.

Oksan Steeltooth of Khalhums -- Don't go transferring your attentions from Elinde to
me, please! -- Helene Juste

M. Chardinee -- How could your insurance lapse?  I thought you guys SOLD insurance.
-- Orverd Quill

Bombette -- This is true.  Flower arranging can be so stressful!  Especially when the
flowers have bees in them. -- Jeri Lough

Bombette -- (blush) -- Fergus Hill
