                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of TALCAMA!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team SHEPHERDS was 
unseated this week as CENTER FOR OLDS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 2-3-0 record for the round.  COCKEYED UMBRELLA caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested AARON and was awarded 9 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, COCKEYED UMBRELLA put down 
AARON, causing him to lose 10 points of recognition in the process.  As is fitting, 
the most sought after warrior on the challenge boards this week was none other than 
Duelmaster KILL KITTEN himself.  Not for nothing has KILL KITTEN in the past laid 
claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his combat skill yet 
again.  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.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in TALCAMA these days is CENTER FOR OLDS.  At least, most blades in town 
are looking to avoid them.  Apparently the stalwarts of SHEPHERDS are catching the 
bulk of jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  This week marked the last days of THE COLOR OF DUMB who at 8-10-2 
was dispatched to the Dark Arena by the command of CENTER FOR OLDS' demanding 
management.  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!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in TALCAMA.  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 - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a 
maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Assur -- So this is how it's going to be, with the both of us kind of out-scumming
each other with so-so squads in order to complete round robins?   Okay, then.  I've
no reason to keep Dumb or the new girl.  Let's see what drek the Commission trods to
Arthur's next week. -- Suave

     Trods?  Ah... "Chases over to"?

Kill Kitten -- I enjoyed this one a lot more than the first.  Assur says I must keep
on challenging, in spite of your obvious style advantage. -- ASB

Special Countdown: 5 PPs! -- Assur

Cockeyed Umbrella -- Quite a diferent fight that time.  I'm a little bit surprised I
won that way, but I'll take it and with that I leave you alone.  I'm not at all
confident I can continue on in this manner! -- Aaron

Gurgles -- Hurry up and get out of here!  You're damaging valuable goods (namely me)!
-- Ruth

Meousa -- After all the losses I've given you, I'm glad you got to give me one back.
