                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of RIZTAB!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team THE UNDEAD was unseated 
this week as DREAMERS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with a 4-1-1 
record for the round.  My praise to DREAMERS for their 4-1-1 week this time out.  
Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving of notice!  The city has turned 
out in honor of MUD MUD FROG, for with his arena victory he may now lay claim to the 
highest position in the city!  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!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In RIZTAB "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when 
this week's challenge seeking began.  THE UNDEAD is feared.  This much I can say.  
Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better part 
of last week avoiding THE UNDEAD.  Indeed it was ENGLISH FOOTBALL.  Mighty fighters 
cannot but expect competition from those below.  JOY OF LOSING take warning!  You 
have more than a few enemies in RIZTAB.  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the 
games this week, it seems that MARTYR posted a challenge against the more highly 
recognized JOY OF LOSING.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand MARTYR beat JOY 
OF LOSING.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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 RIZTAB as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  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

Korynn Frog and Grimm -- Not a problem, it isn't like you have a lot of choices for
challenging.  And you don't make a habit of that kind of challenging, so I'm prepared
to cut you plenty of slack.  Not that I'd get energetic to do anything serious about
it, unless you call throwing dishes at the wall serious, but still. -- Jorja

Ghost -- You were so pale, the stripes just vanished!  I might as well have been
plain vanilla and let it go at that. -- Nelli Politana

Skeleton -- You're too thin.  You need to eat more sweets.  And more greasy foods,
too, but sweets first. -- Taffy

Tatum -- Well, that left ME feeling blue, for sure. -- Charlene

Arignote -- You LED ME ASTRAY!  I thought you were some kind of, you know, FOOD,
something with maybe pasta, and lamb sausage, and goat cheese.  That would be good.
People in this guildhouse don't eat a healthy diet.  All those sweets!  Bah. --
Grubstaker

Bone Yard -- You've heard of, like, sugar daddies?  Well, I'm the reverse, you know?
I'm cute and cuddly and I'll take you for all you've got. -- Sugar Baby
P.S.  But you didn't have very many skills.

All -- Note that the presence of even a few words from some other team sparks a lot
of words from ours.  So decide what you like and encourage it, and I hope "it" is
"talkative." -- Jorja, Sweet Magic
