     M. Chardinee was boring.  Not intrinsically, perhaps, but we've met too often of
late.

                                      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 3rd ranking to take the top spot with 
a 3-2-0 record for the round.  TIK-TOK caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested DOG and was awarded 14 points in recognition.  In 
one of the week's more notable duels, TIK-TOK put down DOG, causing it to lose 9 
points of recognition in the process.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the 
usurper.  All hail WATSON, Duelmaster of KALTOS!  Would you believe that over half of 
the old women in KALTOS seem to feel that they could fight better than you 
gladiators?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city KALTOS.  Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms 
the knowledge that many fighters are after ISOBEL KLINE.  Watch your back!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and 
assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off 
city calling to me.  I must away!  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

Tik-Tok -- Not fair!  My horse was bred and trained to win, but you simply change the
rules and let time pass until its little mind can no longer stay on the task at hand.
Dirty, dirty clock! -- Assur

Dog -- You're certainly a big one!  I figured I'd better surrender quickly before you
bit me where I couldn't get over it.  Like... tore my throat out or something. --

Watson -- That was elementary.  Even I could tell. -- Sairy Wells

Iron Giant -- Ow!  You didn't have to step on my toes! -- Newlin Parrit, wondering if
his toes will just fall off

IG-88 -- What?  How can that be name?  It sounds more like some kind of secret code
id number.  Oh, gods, you're probably a SPY, aren't you? -- Isobel Kline
