                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ARUAK CITY!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team ANIMAL FARM was 
unseated this week as BULLDOGS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with a 
4-0-0 record for the round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the 
corner!  Witness how this week IMMORTALS went 4-1-1 to move up 3 in the rankings.  
Did only my eyes note the 4-0-0 record which BULLDOGS managed to post this round?  I 
don't doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  TIRLA DANCER caught the eye of 
many in the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested BLACK BEE and was 
awarded 26 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, ARTHUR 
DENT put down SIOLAZEELA, causing her to lose 12 points of recognition in the 
process.  Not for nothing has MINUTE STEAK in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's 
throne, and this week he's proven his combat skill yet again.  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.  ARUAK CITY, city of gladiators!  
Mighty among the names of thy guilds is CANNIBALZ, a guild shunned and avoided by 
many in the weekly duels.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard 
pressed to find any of BULLDOGS last week.  Busy avoiding CANNIBALZ?  Loose talk at 
the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters 
are after EQUALIZER.  Watch your back!  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the 
games this week, it seems that SILVIO GREEN posted a challenge against the more 
highly recognized DOOM.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand SILVIO GREEN beat 
DOOM.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  My hearty congratulations MARVIN, for thy revenge upon PURPLE 
PELICAN, slayer of thy fallen comrade.  Next time she will know better, eh?  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!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in ARUAK CITY.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Ahh, but I can hear the 
spires of a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember:  a 
fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by the same thing 
only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Hitchhikers and Zaphod Beeblebrox -- I am truly sorry.  I did mean to challenge and

Dead. -- Purple Pelican

Aye, Obregon; this'n bloody old pirate be might sad at yon death o' Zaphod.  Aye. --

Pig and Black Bee

Feline Berlam Foote -- I thought everyone, especially cats, knew that pelican tasted
like exquisite chicken.  You took a chomp of me; didn't your taste buds react?
Arghh!  Cats, god's penance to the earth. -- Purple Pelican

Irvin F -- Your mind does wander (and wonder) does it not?  Or a Black Kay, a Black
El, a Black Tee, Black You, Black Why.... -- Black Bee (always ready to start a buzz)

quality. -- Claret Crawdad

Congratulations to my own Minute Steak for defending The Duelmaster Title.
Duelmasters drink free at The Bulldog Inn. -- Kennelworth, Proprietor
P.S.  Note his "stats" in The DM Column.  Pretty doggone mediocre-at-best.  But a
Lord Protector!  My, my.

Equalizer -- I thought I would give it a shot realizing I had but a minuscule chance
in hades.  I am pretty smart, hey?  I am also, pretty much... Dogmeat

Irvin Flete -- I think you make me look better than I am. -- Minute Steak

Venomous Concubine -- I thought that was udderly fantastic! -- Udder

Vic Stackhouse -- I was very, very lucky in that fight.  May we meet again. -- Cow-
Ard

Hey, Immortals!  Great point gain!  Way to go! -- Kennelworth

And kudos to my old friend, Mino, for his "critters" 5-0-1.  I am sure he is pleased
with the five and sorry for the one. -- Kennelworth

Good luck to all in The Mailer.  Health.  Humility.  Honor. -- Kennelworth and The
Bulldogs

Tirla Dancer -- I like dancing, but I like winning better.  Oh, yeah! -- Red Head,
Proud Colorific

Trillion -- Never in a trillion years would you beat me.  Nope!  I AM good! -- Golden
Tongue, Proud Colorific

     And so modest, too.

Veteran Mercenary -- Uh, you mean, Old Old Mercenary, don't you?  Bwahahahahaha. --
White Hair, Proud Colorific

Zergy -- Life is not a quick burst of thrill and spending, but rather a long, long
drawn out road of pain and sorrow.  Now you feel some of that pain and sorrow, --
Purple Passion, Proud Colorific

Well done, Colorifics!  3-0!  We are good!  And I am THE BEST! -- Purple People
Eater, Proud Colorific Manager

Cow-ard -- You are no coward.  You came right at me with that weapon, you blood
sucker. -- Vic Stackhouse

Eight more wins to go.  Can't wait. -- Dartor

The Hitchhikers -- You are formidable opponents.  Good job with your team. -- Dartor

Nasty Elemental -- Yeah.  Tracking stuff all over the sands, and I do NOT want to
know what kind of stuff, and then blaming ME?  Oh, yeah, nasty. -- Corvo Black

Minute Steak -- It takes me longer than a minute to warm up. -- Irvin Flete

Red Head -- You're too tempramental.  No grace. -- Tirla Dancer

Cowlick -- Yuck, what a goopy mess! -- Harline Flete

Ford Prefect -- Good gods, man, are you INSANE? -- Berlam Foote

Minute Steak -- It's probably the "rubbing it with seasonings before cooking" bit.
It makes you surprisingly tasty. -- Tirla Dancer

Our congratulations to Minute Steak and Black Bee. -- Jorja and the Krill Cavalry

27 September 10
Note -- We are still looking for additional teams in Arvat, DM 32.  I still have a
number of good team rollups available FREE for whoever wants one.
     Contact the Devil Advocates ASAP to join the fun!  You can either reach me by
diplo or on the RSI site.
     Also, whoever sent me the diplo with no name on it requesting a rollup /
information on how to get into Arvat, I'm embarassed to admit that the diplo slipped
out of my folder and was lost.  Please just send me another one with your mailing
address and I'll get a rollup to you ASAP.  Sorry about that!
