                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of DULLENS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  STONEDOG caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested POLYJUICE TWINS and was awarded 
17 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, BITING FLY put 
down SAM ADAMS, causing him to lose 13 points of recognition in the process.  Not for 
nothing has RELIGIOUS CULT in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and 
this week she's proven hers combat skill yet again.  Informants "close" to the city 
champion have told me that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  
Watch out!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In DULLENS "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!   
     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!   
     The girls are as pretty in DULLENS as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  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:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by 
the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Once again, newsletter and fight reports have not arrived; I blame the snow and the
season, all that stuff.  So we're going with the e-newsletter again. -- Jorja, Cardow
Hunters

You know, I think the standbys in this arena spent that long time when it was closed
practicing and training until they're WAY too good to be NORMAL standbys.  This
Ghost!  Gah. -- Blackhorn

The Drunken Guardsman wasn't too bad.  Drunk, of course.  Eggnog would be my guess, I
could smell it on his breath. -- Rainbird

Magical Shortcut -- It says here I "viciously subdued" you.  And that I was brutal.
I didn't intend either the viciousness or the brutality, but I did intend the win,
and I like it. -- Biting Fly, victorious in battle

Louisiana -- It would appear that no one on this team has fought you before, so I
don't know a thing about you.  Not style, or height, or even gender.  So you'll
pardon me for night inviting you out to dinner.  I want to be sure I've got a female
of the species before I do that. -- Stonedog

Aaaagh!  Damned standbys! -- Anvil
