                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ZUKAL!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team BLUE MOON was unseated 
this week as HOT STUFF moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot with a 3-1-0 
record for the round.  BARELY LEGAL caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as she skillfully bested BLUE GOOSE and was awarded 15 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, KUNG-FU MASTER put down 
SERPENT 2, causing it to lose 11 points of recognition in the process.  Not for 
nothing has SHORT SKIRT in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this 
week she's proven hers 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!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  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?  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

Wow, is Papa Bear tough, or what?  Sweet Cheeks to the Dark Arena at 8-3?  For why?
Going 2-3 in the tourney?  It's a hard life.

Silk Garter -- It gave me chills just looking at you.  Wow!  I'd be honored to wear
your garter on my sleeve, like those knights over in Fratsfa. -- Blammo

Cecil BB -- It would appear that your product did not "measure up," and your
customers are annoyed, thus my popularity after defeating you.  Of course, it could
be just a general recognition of my natural admirableness. -- Bitterman

G-String -- They shouldn't've let you fight in that. -- Blue Streak, still recovering

Katana -- I have always found elfesses attractive.  Perhaps you would join me for a
meal? -- Blue Goose

Midnight -- That's the worst time.  There are THINGS abroad then. -- Blue Funk
