                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of BONSUR!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always 
around the corner!  Witness how this week WASTELAND II went 4-0-0 to move up 6 in the 
rankings.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail HAILSTORM, 
Duelmaster of BONSUR!  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has 
gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In BONSUR "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when 
this week's challenge seeking began.  WASTELAND II is feared.  This much I can say.  
If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of UNDER 
JOLLY ROGER last week.  Busy avoiding WASTELAND II?  Loose talk at the arena has 
reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after SALTON 
SEAHORSE.  Watch your back!  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this 
week, it seems that DIKEMBE MUTUMBO posted a challenge against the more highly 
recognized LAGUNA LIL.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand DIKEMBE MUTUMBO 
bested LAGUNA LIL.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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 - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a 
different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Umbrella Man

Don Corleon -- If you weren't so short, I would be attracted to you.  But a man ten
inches shorter than me...no, it doesn't matter HOW forceful you are.  Sorry.  Nothing
personal. -- Salton Seahorse

Viejo Verde -- That was excessive. -- Ghost of Paulametta

Dikembe Mutumbo -- But it doesn't do any good to "reconsider the gladiator stuff,"
does it?  The managers have the last word, and THEY only reconsider via the Dark
