                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of MALCORN!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team WEST COAST WARRIORS 
was unseated this week as MEAT MARKET moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 2-3-0 record for the round.  Fortune did not smile upon WEST COAST WARRIORS 
this time out who this turn suffered a fall into 5th position in the wake of a 2-3-0 
round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness how 
this week STARBASE 5 went 2-3-0 to move up 3 in the rankings.  VAREKAI caught the eye 
of many in the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested COUNT KOMA and was 
awarded 12 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, BLACKWIND 
put down GREENGROVE, causing him to lose 7 points of recognition in the process.  Not 
for nothing has CHARISMATIC in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and 
this week he's proven his combat skill yet again.  Would you believe that over half 
of the old women in MALCORN seem to feel that they could fight better than you 
gladiators?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  MALCORN, city of gladiators!  
Mighty among the names of thy guilds is GREENWARDENS, a guild shunned and avoided by 
many in the weekly duels.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard 
pressed to find any of PHILANTHROPISTS last week.  Busy avoiding GREENWARDENS?  Loose 
talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many 
fighters are after GREENGROVE.  Watch your back!  I can not but mention with disdain 
the name of PHILOSOPHER who this week posted a challenge to a warrior a full 9 points 
below in the rankings.  I thought PHILOSOPHER showed great skill and promise when he 
beat FIERCE TIGER.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     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 MALCORN 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

Charismatic -- We keep meeting.  Not that I mind.  You whammy me with your charisma
and I'd do anything for you.  Anything. -- Greengrove
P.S.  Well...nearly anything.

Green Eggs & Ham -- What a sickening thought!  What a nauseating image, in fact. --
Tree Shadow
P.S.  Is the ham green, too, or just the eggs?

     If it's just eggs, maybe they're duck eggs.  I understand they are sometimes
     green before they've been sitting out for several weeks. -- Ed.

Incubus -- You're not alone in that.  None of us like hospitals.  It's part of the
job description. -- Jessalin

Oh, a convicted thief.  Boring. -- Pebble

Death to embezzlers! -- Patterson Pine, with very strong feelings on the subject

Go and Go -- A good thought, but I just don't seem to have it in me. -- Greengrove
