                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ARKERS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  BRIDGETT TRUE caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested SHIELD WALL and was awarded 21 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, SLIVER FAINT put 
down SILENT ONE, causing him to lose 14 points of recognition in the process.  Our 
last turn's Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to VETERAN MERCENARY, and IMA SLAYER has 
made the way for a new Duelmaster!  With IMA SLAYER clearing the throne, YOU PAY I 
SLAY of FIELDER takes a proud seat as ARKERS' new Duelmaster, by virtue of 
recognition points.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has 
gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city ARKERS.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune 
but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     The girls are as pretty in ARKERS as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  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

Fielder -- I suppose I should be glad I'm not a field.  No telling WHAT you'd have
done to me then.  You did enough and more as it is. -- Leland Olven

Penny -- Hmm, does that name mean that you take cheap shots, or are you just an
economy assassin? -- Imertal Loel

Lucky -- Well, it sure wasn't MY luck.  Ouch. -- Kotter Nahl

Shield Wall -- A final loss for our side today, but at least you aren't a Slayer.
Makes a LITTLE change. -- Orville Rouse
P.S.  And no red-blooded man would mind losing to a fine figure of a woman like you,
eh?
