                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ALJAFIR games.  TABETA UNIS caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested VETERAN MERCENARY and was 
awarded 12 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, OBIDA 
PANIRI put down PYRO, causing him to lose 2 points of recognition in the process.  
This time out DARK MAGICIAN made his bid for the throne as he challenged HI-JINX in 
an all out contest of skill for possession of the title!  Not for nothing has HI-JINX 
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!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city ALJAFIR.  Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition from those 
below.  ALEXANDER THE GREAT take warning!  You have more than a few enemies in 
ALJAFIR.  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that 
VAMPIRE LORD posted a challenge against the more highly recognized ALEXANDER THE 
GREAT.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand VAMPIRE LORD defeated ALEXANDER 
THE GREAT.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     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 ALJAFIR 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 - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

So we didn't do personals last time, is this a crime for which the whole arena must
suffer silence?  Speak! -- the Middle Way

Late personals:

Pip the Troll -- And we salute you out with a win. -- Tabeta Unis
P.S.  Tell me where you're going to fight on the Isle, and if I graduate, I won't go
there.

Did you know that our Kung-Fu Master is Ratani, which is the same thing as saying
he's a closet Aruaki?  Are we going to ALLOW this? -- Daron El

Pfc Lynch -- You needed another loss, you were getting too unbalanced.  And by the
way, how about lunch? -- Vurzhal Ur, master of suave

Cult Member?  I should have killed him.  I would have killed him, but the arenamaster
stepped in too soon. -- Obida Paniri

Maximus -- Sinister, very sinister.  Anyone who holds his sword in his left hand
should be viewed with deep suspicion. -- Straight Line

Current personals:

I'd like the Venomous Concubine better if she wouldn't bite. -- Daron El

Hi-Jinx -- "I don't like hospitals"?  Tell me something I don't know! -- Tabeta Unis
P.S.  But they're better than morgues.

Alexander the Great -- I hate it when somebody with a name like yours figures he has
to live up to it. -- Vurzhal Ur

Marshall -- Could I say, "My need for a win was greater than yours"?  Well, I already
did say it, didn't I?  But I do appreciate your chivalric loss, it being obvious that
you COULD have defeated me, if you'd really tried. -- Obida Panir

Pyro -- Setting fire to the arenamaster was a great distraction, but I hate it that
you then blamed ME and he picked on ME because of it. -- Straight Line

ATTENTION ALL YOU ALLIANCE-TYPE PEOPLE:
For the purposes of tourney newsletter alliance listings (when I am able to do them),
you may only be listed in ONE alliance.  In other words, you have to choose!  If you
are a part of Englebert's Alliance and Englebert's Alliance is "part" of Ruthrauf's
Alliance, I will list you EITHER as part of Englebert's Alliance OR as part of
Ruthrauf's Alliance, NOT both.  The default would be the top-level alliance,
Ruthrauf's, in this example.  If you'd rather be listed separately, let me know and I
will do so, but that will be the only listing you get. -- The Saint, keeper of ever-
more-complicated lists

29 Jun 2005
The Company of Brothers (TCB) welcomes two new members to our alliance...Liam the
Goth and Buddy Lee.  We have no doubt that they will prove to be assets to our
alliance and the general dueling community. -- Baphomet, co-founder, T.C.B.
