                                      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 THE MIDDLE WAY 5 was 
unseated this week as TECHNOLOGY moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with 
a 2-2-0 record for the round.  BIRGITTE caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as she skillfully bested PRIS and was awarded 15 points in recognition.  
In one of the week's more notable duels, IRON GIANT put down ISOBEL KLINE, causing 
her to lose 11 points of recognition in the process.  Due to its absence and 
inability to defend the throne, 8 BALL has lost the title of Duelmaster.  This time 
victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail WATSON, Duelmaster of KALTOS!  
Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he never fights without 
pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city KALTOS.  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in KALTOS these 
days is TECHNOLOGY.  At least, most blades in town are looking to avoid them.  
Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better part 
of last week avoiding TECHNOLOGY.  Indeed it was HOOKED ON COFFEE.  I can not but 
mention with disdain the name of WATSON who this week posted a challenge to a warrior 
a full 10 points below in the rankings.  I thought WATSON showed great skill and 
promise when he bested JUST LOSIN.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  I must report the passing of RIELLA 
TRUE, veteran of many duels.  4-11-0 final record Hers was not illustrious--but death 
plays no favorites.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with 
fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     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:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise 
are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Watson -- You didn't think I'd teach you that much twice in a row, did you?
Especially since I had to LOSE the second time. -- Just Losin

8 Ball -- Why do I feel like I've been knocked into a deep hole? -- Nolber Pring
P.S.  And I brought my swimming suit, too.

Hextor -- Clearly, refusing to "be nice" to the handicapper was a career error. --
Riella True
P.S.  And one I'd make again.  He's a loathesome fat slug.

Iron Giant -- Is that like being a Steel-toed Shew? -- Newlin Parrit

Aha!  A win, and the only one on the team today.  I can make use of this. -- Isobel
Kline

Pris -- You forgot the main rule when fighting me.  You let me hit you. -- Buzz
