                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of TALCAMA!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  There were bitter words at 
CHAMPIONS' guildhouse after a 0-3-0 showing this week which dropped the stable into 
11th.  Dark Arena anyone?  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the 
corner!  Witness how this week THE GRATEFUL UNDEAD went 3-1-0 to move up 6 in the 
rankings.  My praise to LUROCIAN PRIDE for their 3-0-1 week this time out.  Indeed, 
it was a skillfully fought round deserving of notice!  THE DUKE OF SPOOK caught the 
eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested CAOIMHIN and was 
awarded 22 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, NIKKI put 
down SPECTRUM 5, causing it to lose 17 points of recognition in the process.  Most 
watched of the fights this week, the spotlight was on SPARE ANCHOR as he bore arms 
against the challenge of reigning Duelmaster DIRT BATH.  Although SPARE ANCHOR made a 
valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious DIRT BATH.  No 
confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their position using 
magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  CENTER FOR OLDS is feared.  This 
much I can say.  Apparently the stalwarts of GHOST RIDERS TOO are catching the bulk 
of jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty 
fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  NEWBIE take warning!  You 
have more than a few enemies in TALCAMA.  As a gladiator gets older, the icy grip of 
fear lays hold of his heart.  True, MERVYN?  Who could miss your "brave" challenge of 
ACHERON?  Few would not have guessed the outcome of the bout as ACHERON lost to 
MERVYN.  Is this what passes for courage in TALCAMA?  For some warriors honor is not 
important--only empty victory.  See, gladiators, how SHADERUNNER of GHOST RIDERS TOO 
challenged down 17 points to ISA.  All the city knows the duel went in favor of 
SHADERUNNER.  I shall not fail to spread the word in other cities of this "mighty" 
victory.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Was I the only one shocked to see the 
well respected fighter DRYFTR (3-1-0) appear on the sands of the Dark Arena?  He is 
now dead.  Strange what qualities come forth in the face of certain doom.  NEWBIE has 
the town astir with the news of its Dark Arena victory!  The warrior's path is harsh. 
For mediocrity there is but one reward--death.  This past week CAOIMHIN, at 5-4-0, 
departed TALCAMA forever.  I must report the passing of TRIP, veteran of many duels.  
12-10-0 final record His was not illustrious--but death plays no favorites.  THE 
CODDLER must hold silent, for this week she was humbled in the arena by a successful 
Bloodfeud won by STOWAWAY of SEA DOGS.  Hail STOWAWAY for thy victory!  Let all 
swords of the city take heed!  By law, RAVENS SONG has but one remaining week to take 
their revenge upon PLANKTON for the slaying of DRAQUE VLOODE.  My hearty 
congratulations D.A. BOUND, for thy revenge upon ZED DARDSTONE, slayer of thy fallen 
comrade.  Next time he will know better, eh?  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers 
the miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till we meet 
again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a 
lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

I have been asking around, and I understand that we can get the personals for
Aljafir, which isn't using them, for a modest fee.  Either that, or give the standbys
here a scribe to write personals of their own.  Because we must have personals.
