                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of TALCAMA!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  SLIPPERY MICKEY caught the eye of 
many in the gladiatorial commission as it skillfully bested RUTH and was awarded 19 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, SPOONIE G put down 
DIP, causing him to lose 16 points of recognition in the process.  Due to his absence 
and inability to defend the throne, ADAMANT has lost the title of Duelmaster.  This 
time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail KILL KITTEN, Duelmaster of 
TALCAMA!  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!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city TALCAMA.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  ARDUIN GRIMOIRE is feared.  This much I can say.  If you 
didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of SHEPHERDS 
last week.  Busy avoiding ARDUIN GRIMOIRE?   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  This week marked the last days of A'S SPECIAL BLEND who at 22-36-0 
was dispatched to the Dark Arena by the command of SHEPHERDS' demanding management.  
Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena there is only the 
brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     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

Thanks to all who made A's Special Blend become a success (at least by my definition
of success... graduation).  He started 6 wit, 7 will.  I had hoped to send a
spotlight about him, maybe I'll do it next turn.  With the Internet Outage, I'll be
lucky to get these ads in for this turn! -- Assur
