                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of RIZTAB!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  ANTIPHON caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested JOUELLA and was awarded 13 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, ANTIPHON put down JOUELLA, 
causing her to lose 12 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has 
ARISTOCLEA in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week she's 
proven hers combat skill yet again.  Would you believe that over half of the old 
women in RIZTAB seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In RIZTAB "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!   
     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?  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off 
city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier 
than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Aristoclea -- Why am I not surprised?  At least you got a winning record out of it,
and the title, and I can go spend more time in the kitchen.  I'm working on a recipe
for almond cookies.  Takes all my attention. -- Donnamira

Alcmaeon -- You're definitely wound up today, must've been eating too much sugar.  In
so far as there's such a thing as "too much sugar," of course. -- Jaylene Mokhar
P.S.  But sometimes it does need tempering with chocolate.

Motta the Pike wants "marshmallows roasted on a stick."  Fine, let him do it himself.
-- Lorimera

No way I'm throwing good food into Hezash the Mouth.  Totally undiscriminating. --
Jouella

I caught Sibata the thief with his hand in the cookie jar, and it seemed to ME
perfectly reasonable that I should try to drown him in a tub of cinnamon-sugar glaze.
I don't know why people got so upset about it. -- Miriamina

Huh, looks like that Ten of Clubs is a real killer.  Gives us all a grue just
thinking about him. -- the Sweet Magic chefs
