                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of KALTOS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  IRVINA KORL caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested DANGEROUS CRIMINAL and was awarded 
23 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, DYLLIN put down 
KOLVER MOON, causing him to lose 13 points of recognition in the process.  Not for 
nothing has HALIBUTT 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?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune 
but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in KALTOS.  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 - the pen is 
mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Halibutt -- I suppose I should know better than to fight a golem fish.  Nothing good
can come of it. -- Katirona Murh

The Convicted Assassin appears to be a bit stupid.  Which I suppose should not
surprise me.  An intelligent assassin wouldn't have been caught, much less convicted.
-- Felissa Hurm

The Userous Merchant values any skills he might deign to teach me too highly.  No way
will I pay that much! -- Pendru Rost
P.S.  And while any skill may be useful in the right place, I didn't WANT an
initiative skill today.

Kadasya -- I hope this didn't make your wizard too wrathful.  *I* liked the result.
-- Irvina Korl

Dyllin -- What else could I do?  You were about to spout poetry at me, I could tell,
and I'm allergic to it. -- Kolver Moon

Jammy Larke -- Leave.  Take your enterpreunrial energies to the Isle of the Eye. --
Arenamaster Troktai
