                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of TRANSEL!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  R.L. caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested TORPEDO and was awarded 19 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, R.L. put down TORPEDO, causing 
him to lose 9 points of recognition in the process.  The city has turned out in honor 
of ALBERT KING, for with his arena victory he may now lay claim to the highest 
position in the city!  Would you believe that over half of the old women in TRANSEL 
seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In TRANSEL "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition 
from those below.  ALICE AIN'T HERE take warning!  You have more than a few enemies 
in TRANSEL.  For some warriors honor is not important--only empty victory.  See, 
gladiators, how LEGIONNAIRE of MACHINES OF WAR challenged down 25 points to ALICE 
AIN'T HERE.  Few would not have guessed the outcome of the bout as ALICE AIN'T HERE 
was subdued by LEGIONNAIRE.  Is this what passes for courage in TRANSEL?  I cannot 
but express pride for the fearlessness of CRUSADER who cast caution to the winds and 
challenged DESMOND DOSS, a fighter 46 points higher.  The MACHINES OF WAR stable will 
be up late tonight, for indeed it was CRUSADER who claimed victory in the contest, 
ascending 30 in recognition!   
     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!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  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 - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Two-three and a death.  But the worst thing is seeing Son of John all over the front
page. -- Not-a-Nut Jones

Legionnaire -- Amazing that you managed to hit Alice, since she basically wasn't
there.  Please don't kill her.  So long as her body lives, she has to stick to that
location, more or less, but if the body is killed, the spirit, which is INSANE, will
haunt us and taunt us for a LOOONG time. -- Not-a-Nut Jones

It's about TIME I got recognized properly here! -- Son of John
P.S.  Good job killing that Pussycat, Paladin.  He was a disgustingly cute little
beast, and I couldn't stand him hanging around the guildhouse.
