                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of BONSUR!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team SENTINELS was unseated 
this week as BRUTAL LEGION moved up from 4th ranking to take the top spot with a 
5-0-0 record for the round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the 
corner!  Witness how this week BRUTAL LEGION went 5-0-0 to move up 3 in the rankings. 
DESTROYER caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully 
bested RADIO and was awarded 20 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more 
notable duels, DESTROYER put down RADIO, causing him to lose 15 points of recognition 
in the process.  Most watched of the fights this week, the spotlight was on BARRIO as 
it bore arms against the Bloodfeud of reigning Duelmaster TOTAL DISASTER 1.0.  Not 
for nothing has TOTAL DISASTER 1.0 in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, 
and this week it's proven its combat skill yet again.  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 BONSUR.  Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms 
the knowledge that many fighters are after FATALITY.  Watch your back!  A match that 
raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that COVER YOUR MOUTH posted a 
challenge against the more highly recognized FATALITY.  The results, you ask?  Well, 
the firebrand COVER YOUR MOUTH was subdued by FATALITY.  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.  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?  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

Red Lance -- Well, golly!  Goshamally, too.  Somebody new to fight, and a lot of
great skills, and I really, really like the whole situation.  The only thing that
would have made it better is for me to win.  Remember that next time we meet on the
sands. -- Salton Seahorse

Marshal -- At a time like this, I can find nothing to complain of. -- Laguna Lil,
Lady Protector

Ramses -- Hmm, I think it's your nose.  Maybe if you had, what do they call it?  A
"nose bob," yeah.  Maybe if you had one of those, you'd be a nicer guy, you know? --
Beach Betty
P.S.  Assuming being a nicer guy is a goal with you.

Ozymandius -- I REFUSE to despair.  I've already DONE despair, you see.  Once is
enough. -- Sandy Shore

Albino -- Okay!  And I can show you the BEST beaches, and there's this neat drink
with an umbrella in it that I bet you'd like! -- Sandy Shore

Nomad -- Well...I've seen some managers do nothing but DA for weeks trying to get
godling rollups for their team.  If that's what amuses them....  (shrug) -- Surfer
Sam, Beach Babes

Ramses -- The beach sands are BETTER.  Not as, like, harsh and, you know, sandy. --

All -- I support Vendetta Cartel's observation of The Dark Knights!  If war is
declared on V.C. by The Dark Knights, then war is also declared on The Dark Knights
of the Desolate Empire by The Avengers of Light!  We have been quietly awaiting such
a chance to expose ourselves (all interested parties contact me c/o The Barbarians:
DM 31, Attn: Timothias)!  Come, Vendetta Cartel, let us show these broke-down
"Knights" what true warriors are! -- Gemini Goldphoenix, Overlord of The Avengers of
Light

26 August 2006
The Avengers of Light.  Another VC lackey?  What's the matter VC, are you scared?
Bringing in reinforcements.  It matters not, bring your avengers and they shall be
crushed!  I am Dark Knight Blackstorm and I represent the Desolate Empire and can
easily be found in 8, 28, 31, 47, 54, and 106.  I reply with steel and your women
shall cry when they start the body count!!!!!!!!!  Remember to sign your posts to
whoever from the VC wrote that earlier Ad. -- Dark Knight Blackstorm
