                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly SUNSET games.  Did only my eyes note the 3-1-0 record 
which BEN & JERRY'S managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a record 
will draw challengers!  WILD caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as 
he skillfully bested JONISSON and was awarded 28 points in recognition.  In one of 
the week's more notable duels, WILD put down JONISSON, causing him to lose 31 points 
of recognition in the process.  Most watched of the fights this week, the spotlight 
was on GRAVEN WARD as he bore arms against the Bloodfeud of reigning Duelmaster 
BORGES.  Although GRAVEN WARD made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the 
reign of victorious BORGES.  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.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in SUNSET these days is OMINOUS REIGN.  At least, most blades in town 
are looking to avoid them.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard 
pressed to find any of THE RED BLADES last week.  Busy avoiding OMINOUS REIGN?  
Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  TERRE HAUTE take 
warning!  You have more than a few enemies in SUNSET.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Look no more for JARYUL in the arena or on the 
streets of SUNSET.  Hers fate was sealed in the Dark Arena.  Inevitable for one at 
5-10-0.  I must report the passing of GRAVEN WARD, veteran of many duels.  21-24-2 
final record His was not illustrious--but death plays no favorites.  The warrior's 
path is harsh.  For mediocrity there is but one reward--death.  This past week 
ALAZIR, at 9-7-1, departed SUNSET forever.  Cruelly, BORGES of LITERATE LOONS has 
slain the lesser ranked GRAVEN WARD.  Word already flies around town that NOMADIC 
TRIBE plans a bloodfeud!  LIKE WATER must hold silent, for this week he was humbled 
in the arena by a successful Bloodfeud won by SILVER HAZE of 420 B.C..  Hail SILVER 
HAZE for thy victory!  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 SUNSET.  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

Mutaba Iro -- Nice win.  I thought I could win that challenge.  Actually, I still do.
It was close.  But you got it.  Congrats. -- Walli Weeble

Dred -- Well, given the record, you may have done us a favor with that kill.  At
least you saved us a night fight.  But still, blood must be avenged, and sadly for
you, we really have nobody to do that fight that isn't way over your head in
experience.  May I suggest training skills? -- Nomad and the Tribe

Chesterton -- That challenge was downright Loony!  I must thank you for providing the
Tribe with its lone win last cycle. -- Bul

Spigot -- I'm guessing there is more to you than meets the eye!  Not that you gave me
much time to meet you eye-to-eye. -- Graven Ward

Darkness -- Now that was not what I was looking for!  Nice win. -- Sasquatch

All -- Thanks for the grats on Angel.  She went out 17 wit, will and 13 df.  Got the
SH but isn't anythihng special except she can't fight sometimes. -- Arch Elf

Jet -- Nice to see you up here if for a little bit. -- Ice

Yodle -- Looks like I need a tweek or two. -- Wild

Wecome to all the new managers or old as it may be.  It was great meeting you and
putting faces to the names.  Sandy said she would run her team here so watch out,
guys. -- Arch Elf

Demonspawn -- Grats on your Bloodgames guy. -- Arch Elf

Orwell -- Ah, but you see, I HAVE a big brother, and I know EXACTLY how to deal with
him.  A cast iron skillet upside the head now and then... no problems after that. --
Kallia May
P.S.  At least, so long as I wash the skillet first.  He does complain about
scrambled eggs in his hair, and I can see his point of view there.

Cabon -- Ah, too high-brow for me, I'm sure. -- Trelaine

Too Big to Fail -- Um... what, exactly, was your manager thinking when he gave you
that name? -- Jonisson

Grey Fatal -- Ah, of COURSE you're a golem.  I should have guessed that. -- Elise
Isla

Unsigned Commentor -- You could not pay me enough to raise chickens. -- Elise Isla

Stik -- Don't know who'll reach 700 wins first, but I bet we reach a thousand losses
first. -- Jorja

Blakskul -- You have to pay attention. -- Jonisson

Sasquatch -- If you had clearly been headhunting, I might have moved myself to a
bloodfeud, but accidents happen, and right now I'm not thinking beyond finishing up
the day's work. -- Jorja

Ben & Jerry's, Daggers Deep -- Welcome to the Arena of Death, the Jewel of the
Delarquan Federation, Sunset.  May your stays be long, blood soaked and glory filled!
First round's on us tonight at the Broken Bone! -- Grim Fandango

Sherman and Literate Loons -- Congrats on the throne, nice capper to your recent
performances!  Will we be graced with a most literate DM column?? -- Stik and GF

Purple Magic -- Umm....yah.  Guess them's the breaks...any way you could visit your
teammates in a dream or something, petition for mercy for me?? -- Like Water

Reptile Rampage -- That was a very unfortunate matchup for you.  I'll raise a tankard
in Salamander's memory tonight.  I await the bloodfeud. -- Blakskul

Kipling -- Well, you can take a punch, anyways.  I'm off to the night show.  Later.
-- Helzanjul

Speedo Smurf -- You got yours, nicely done.  I guess I'm deaders, too.  Damn. -- Blak
Thrush

Tool Shed -- Nice three turn.  Wish it were mine! -- Stik
