                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of KOLACT!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team THE CLUB was unseated this 
week as THE MOONDOGS moved up from 4th ranking to take the top spot with a 4-1-0 
record for the round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  
Witness how this week THE MOONDOGS went 4-1-0 to move up 3 in the rankings.  ELLIS 
DEE caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested 
FIREFOX and was awarded 21 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable 
duels, ANN OREXIA put down BUGSY, causing it to lose 15 points of recognition in the 
process.  This time out CAPRICA made his bid for the throne as he challenged TREMORS 
in an all out contest of skill for possession of the title!  This time victory fell 
to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail CAPRICA, Duelmaster of KOLACT!  No 
confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their position using 
magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  KOLACT, city of gladiators!  
Mighty among the names of thy guilds is THE MOONDOGS, a guild shunned and avoided by 
many in the weekly duels.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was 
that spent the better part of last week avoiding THE MOONDOGS.  Indeed it was 
ABOMINATION.  I cannot but express pride for the fearlessness of SCARFACE who cast 
caution to the winds and challenged TROG, a fighter 27 points higher.  The THE CLUB 
stable will be up late tonight, for indeed it was SCARFACE who claimed victory in the 
contest, ascending 24 in recognition!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  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 KOLACT as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  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

Tremors -- Well, I said it before, our fights always come down to who wins the jump.
-- (Fat Girl) Thong...err Trog

Ferrin Mondor -- Thanks for all the learns.  Might have to fight you again so I can
get more skills. -- Caprica

Party Floyd -- Go figure, all my losses are to aimed blows.  You guys SUCK!!! -- Dora
T. Explora

The Moondogs -- I'm still trying to figure that out.  I had him.  (My best early
guess is he cheated.) -- Caprica

Eutherine Planeda -- You broke the map?!?  Aww hell no boots is gonna be soooo
pissed! -- Dora T. Explora

Trog -- Yeah, but so far, I'm still alive, which is good.  Jorja's got this
necromancer she met somewhere, he's going to make sure that any of us who die on the
sands without "good cause," whatever THAT means, has a seriously unpleasant
afterlife.  I'm trying to avoid that. -- Ferrin Mondor

Dora T. Explora -- Ah... right.  I won't. -- Eutherine Planeda

Tremors -- You're leaving us?  We're, um, we wish you well on your journey. -- the
Moondogs

And, the tourney!  Again, or finally, or something.  We salute those involved. --
Jorja and the Moondogs

Caprica -- Ah, the old familiar.  I could do that fight in my sleep, and probably
have, judging by the bruises I don't remember collecting. -- Ferrin Mondor
P.S.  I think you can call me "professor."

Addai -- Augh, robot snakes!  If I'd know before I signed up that I would be facing
robot snakes, I would never have become a gladiator, I can tell you that! -- Monzar
Orbisar

Worthless -- You have been cursed by your name, and, of course, by the handicapper
who sent you in for this mismatch. -- Deimoon Farr, glad of the win however it
happened

Animal House -- Euwh, and it smells like it. -- Eutherine Planeda

Frost/Nixon -- I've heard of hyphenated names, but yours confuses me still. --
Iayelle Orbin
