                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ALJAFIR!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  BRUNHILDA caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested ZEBD ARVIN and was awarded 19 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, BRUNHILDA put down 
ZEBD ARVIN, causing him to lose 13 points of recognition in the process.  This time 
victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail BELLONA CHIST, Duelmaster of 
ALJAFIR!  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this week, the 
whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing 
is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     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:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by 
the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Bradley -- Just as a matter of curiosity, how does one "barely slay" a ghoul?  Seems
like some contradiction in that. -- Inquiring Minds

Brunhilda -- I dunno about subduing you, as a person, but your taste in personal
appearance could use a little subduction. -- Bellona Chist
P.S.  Yes, I know, "subduction" doesn't mean what I was using it for.  Sue me.

Nothing wrong with a Veteran Mercenary now and then, as long as he's finely chopped.
-- Zebd Arvin
P.S.  Philly sliced.

Reaper -- Wrong season for you. -- Alida Bern

Football -- Ah!  I kicked you for a home run! -- Senlum Nosh

Green Beans -- Be glad you got me and not my little brother.  He took the position
that if anyone forced green beans on HIM, he would throw them up.  And he DID.  I
just scraped 'em under the Something-Of-Everything Dressing. -- Kaireen Lamar
