                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of TOBIR!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always 
around the corner!  Witness how this week WU-TANG FOREVER went 2-1-0 to move up 3 in 
the rankings.  TIGER PRIDE caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as 
he skillfully bested TACO HELL and was awarded 18 points in recognition.  In one of 
the week's more notable duels, HARRY MUTT put down BLACK WIDOW, causing her to lose 
10 points of recognition in the process.  Due to his absence and inability to defend 
the throne, FAITH has lost the title of Duelmaster.  The city has turned out in honor 
of VISIONZ, for with his arena victory he may now lay claim to the highest position 
in the city!  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 TOBIR "art" is a word that has long 
since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in 
TOBIR these days is F WORDS.  At least, most blades in town are looking to avoid 
them.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any 
of THE DEATH SQUAD last week.  Busy avoiding F WORDS?  Mighty fighters cannot but 
expect competition from those below.  TACO HELL take warning!  You have more than a 
few enemies in TOBIR.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Look no more for TIMMY in the arena or on the 
streets of TOBIR.  His fate was sealed in the Dark Arena.  Inevitable for one at 
20-6-0.  Some guilds are strict but few are as heartless as THE DEATH SQUAD.  
Witness, last turn they sent TIMMY, a 20-6-0 fighter, to the Dark Arena!  My 
condolences to B.B. FAST FOOD for their loss of a very promising warrior, TACO HELL.  
TACO HELL went to doom before the arms of TIGER PRIDE, a warrior of THE DEATH SQUAD.  
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 TOBIR as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  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:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise 
are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Hairy Mutt -- You won't ever star in one of our commercials.  We only like The Little
Pup. -- Taco Hell

Our congratulations to Timmy and Fluke. -- Jorja and the Doghouse pack

Taco Hell -- A rubber ball?  A rubber shoe?  Those shoes taste weird, but they're
better than no shoes when it comes to chewing. -- Hairy Mutt

Foehn -- Tripped you, didn't I?  My sister Lassie couldn't have done it better. --
Lasso

The Veteran Mercenary was kind of boring.  He kept saying he was too tired to play.
-- Doggo

Jiles -- It's hard to watch for Zombies.  Their smells are all wrong, and they don't
move like real people, either. -- The Watch Dog

Fury -- You should be one of us.  That's what Jorja says.  Are you good at throwing
frisbees? -- The Little Pup

Huh, I was looking at the miniovers for this team, and I note that all of them do
good damage or more.  Trouble is, they don't seem to hit well. -- Jorja
