                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly RIZTAB games.  Did only my eyes note the 4-1-0 record 
which SWEET MAGIC managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a record will 
draw challengers!  GUILLOTINE caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission 
as he skillfully bested ALCMAEON and was awarded 18 points in recognition.  In one of 
the week's more notable duels, GUILLOTINE put down ALCMAEON, causing him to lose 19 
points of recognition in the process.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the 
usurper.  All hail HIPPASUS, Duelmaster of RIZTAB!  No confirmation, but my sources 
claim that the top team has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed 
weapons perhaps?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In RIZTAB "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat 
in RIZTAB these days is CARDS.  At least, most blades in town are looking to avoid 
them.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the 
better part of last week avoiding CARDS.  Indeed it was BLADES OF TERROR.  Loose talk 
at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters 
are after DORA BELL.  Watch your back!   
     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!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in RIZTAB.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  More than a sharp eye must I 
keep, indeed a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari 
await me!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a 
maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Alcmaeon -- Ah, the old familiar faces!  I've got this thing I'm trying with frozen
coconut milk, want to give it test-taste? -- Dora Bell

Aristoclea -- If you'd leave the Dutchman's pipe alone, you'd find more people
enjoying your company, you know.  And it isn't like you're smoking the darned thing,
so I bet we could work up some suitable prop that wasn't, ah, detectable by scent
from fifty yards. -- Donnamira

One-Eyed Jack -- That must give you trouble with your depth perception. -- Jaylene
Mokhar
P.S.  Oh, shucks, I turned over the page and you DIED.  That will give you a LOT of
trouble with depth perception.  It wasn't my intention to kill you, of course, but
cheese louise!  The way you were attacking viciously, I had to fight back the same
way for ME to survive.

Black Bartok just couldn't WAIT to get to my Black Bottom Pie.  And who can blame
him?  Though I say it myself, it is superb. -- Nonellia

I've tried and TRIED to explain to Tio the Moneychanger that usery doesn't work in
the kitchen, you just get really greasy eggs.  But he never listens.  "If a little
butter is good, a lot of butter must be better."  The sooner he dies of clogged
arteries, the happier I'll be. -- Lorimera
