                                      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 VIKINGS was unseated this 
week as FEARSOME FIVESOME moved up from 6th 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 FEARSOME FIVESOME went 5-0-0 to move up 5 in the rankings.  
SLITHERING IDIOT caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as it 
skillfully bested MORE MONN and was awarded 23 points in recognition.  In one of the 
week's more notable duels, SLITHERING IDIOT put down MORE MONN, causing him to lose 
15 points of recognition in the process.  Although FROST/NIXON made a valiant effort, 
it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious SKYHAWK.  Heed this!  A seer has 
warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole city shall perish!  Just 
remember...5 or 7!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  BACON MAKIN' is feared.  This much 
I can say.  Apparently the stalwarts of ABOMINATION are catching the bulk of jests 
down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Let all swords of the city take heed!  By law, 
FLOYD ANONYMOUS has but one remaining week to take their revenge upon SKYHAWK for the 
slaying of PARTY FLOYD.  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

Padre and His Cadre -- Welcome back to the sands. -- Chase (Mgr. of Abomination)

Monzar Orbisar -- I didn't even fight w/ my correct weapons or stargtegy and somehow

Dora T. Explora -- Ah, you were warned not to open THAT tomb, but you did it anyway.
You've been cursed.  By a mummy, probably, but maybe a daddy, too.  Who knows? --

Ciric -- Well, of course!  I'm a devastating woman.  They tell me it's the elven
blood, but I think it's just me. -- Iayelle Orbin
