                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ALJAFIR!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  VERCINGETORIX caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested TAMARIN MELLIRN and was 
awarded 11 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, 
ARTEMIDORUS put down STELRA TIRINS, causing her to lose 4 points of recognition in 
the process.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail DROGBA, 
Duelmaster of ALJAFIR!  Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he 
never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  ALJAFIR, city of gladiators!  
Mighty among the names of thy guilds is MIDDLE WAY, 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 FIELDS OF ELYSIUM last week.  Busy avoiding MIDDLE WAY?  
Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  VIOLET ORC take 
warning!  You have more than a few enemies in ALJAFIR.  JACK THE RIPPER must really 
be harboring a grudge against the HEROESANDFOUNDONES guild!  Merciless, 18 challenged 
down VIOLET ORC points this week to duel with he.  Few would not have guessed the 
outcome of the bout as VIOLET ORC was overcame by JACK THE RIPPER.  Is this what 
passes for courage in ALJAFIR?   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  N- MOCK must hold silent, for this week she was humbled in the 
arena by a successful Bloodfeud won by DROGBA of HEROESANDFOUNDONES.  Hail DROGBA for 
thy victory!  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune but 
sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in ALJAFIR.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  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

Attila the Hun -- I considered avoiding you again, and then I thought, Why bother?
It isn't like you can kill me, and I'm retiring, so my record is meaningless from now
on.  I hope that when you get to the Isle, or the next tourney, as the case might be,
everyone hands you your ass.  I'm certainly tired of having that donkey parked on MY
lawn. -- Vinn Wulf

Drogba -- I don't know if you're officially a hero or a foundone, but you're
certainly a nicer guy than Attila ever was.  However, I wouldn't have MINDED a skill
or two; I have my own graduation to plan for, you know? -- Stelra Tirins

The Red Baron -- Since when are those flying golems, whatever you call them, allowed
in the arena during a fight?  Very distracting. -- Tamarin Mellirn
P.S.  I'm sure they're an offense against nature.

Ah, it's the man in the Osksi Noble mask.  A little like the man in the Iron mask,
but not as grim.  Whoever he is, I don't think he likes what his sentence was
commuted to. -- Xaviora Yohl
P.S.  This is not a good place to run afoul of the government.  Really nasty people
at every level, and if you ask them to show you the statute you're supposed to be in
violation of, they just laugh.

I never let scribes keep my accounts.  Every one of them is a potential embezzler,
I'm sure of that. -- Grishort Hurm
P.S.  I don't have accounts, which puts me one up on everybody!  I have three jars in
a safe place, and every time I get paid, I divide the money evenly and put one third
in each jar.  One for rent, one for taxes, and one for everything else.  It works for
me.

Lord Protector Drogba -- Listen, this is really a bad--  Ah, sorry.  Congratulations.
You did well.  But listen, this is really a bad time to be looking for lands or any
other kind of gift.  Things are in an amazing turmoil because of, ah, well, there are
problems in high places.  I don't suppose you need the details.  But if you happen to
know of a reliable healer or cursebreaker, contact the khaliv's palace immediately.
-- Zagrehj, Assistant to the Arenamaster
