                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of SUNSET!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team DEVIATION was unseated 
this week as THE BOWLS moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot with a 3-2-0 
record for the round.  Fortune did not smile upon DARK OVERLORDS this time out who 
this turn suffered a fall into 16th position in the wake of a 0-3-0 round.  
Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness how this week 
ALL JACKED UP II went 3-2-0 to move up 6 in the rankings.  My praise to TOOL SHED for 
their 4-1-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving 
of notice!  RAZE caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he 
skillfully bested PIETROS and was awarded 19 points in recognition.  In one of the 
week's more notable duels, RHASKOS put down CELINE, causing him to lose 14 points of 
recognition in the process.  This time out LEVEL OF MALEVOLENCE made his bid for the 
throne as he challenged RED HOUSE in an all out contest of skill for possession of 
the title!  Not for nothing has RED HOUSE in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's 
throne, and this week he's proven his combat skill yet again.  No confirmation, but 
my sources claim that the top team has gained their position using magical aids.  
Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city SUNSET.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  BEN'S BAZAAR is feared.  This much I can say.  Apparently 
the stalwarts of THE BOWLS are catching the bulk of jests down at the challenging 
board for their large share of the avoids.  Loose talk at the arena has reached my 
ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after MUSUBU KIN.  
Watch your back!  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it seems 
that CRIXUS posted a challenge against the more highly recognized HELRAZOR.  The 
results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand CRIXUS was bested by HELRAZOR.  Remember 
warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Look no more for MURGATROYD in the arena 
or on the streets of SUNSET.  His fate was sealed in the Dark Arena.  Inevitable for 
one at 4-8-0.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune but 
sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     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:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  
The wise are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Segovax -- You are one tough dwarf!  We will call that bloodfeud finished and your
debt paid.  Gwenhyvar really wanted your head, but it was not to be.  Good luck to
you in the future. -- The Master, mgr. Dark Overlords

All -- Apologies for lack of PAs as of late.  Feel like I have been lucky to get a
turn out the past few turns.  So, I will endeavor to get more PAs out and keep up the
line of taunts, barbs and insults that make me love my profession. -- The Master,
mgr. Dark Overlords

Blakskul -- Was starting to think you were gonna be around long enough for one of my
guys to take a shot at you, but I guess not.  Happy immortality and enjoy the Isle.
-- The Master, mgr. Dark Overlords

All -- I'm Pat Sajak, manager of All Jacked Up.  My first turn didn't turn out as
well as I had hoped, but it's great to be here anyway!  I look forward to meeting you
on the sands! -- Pat Sajak

All -- Jack o' Lantern:  11-7-9-17-15-14-11, SL, started exp Init.  May he rest in
peace in the great pumpkin patch in the sky!  With a name like that, he was destined
for Halloween! -- Pat Sajak

Dirtywork Scapegoat -- How about we agree to teach each other a little better next
time? -- Fish

Smurf Lightning -- I know, why the heck would I challenge someone with seven more
fights?  I could say that I wanted to get a feel for my abilities, but probably I'll
just blame Froot E. Bowl for his management. -- Questiona

Boom Boom -- My first win!  No, really, you should feel honored.  I'm just feeling a
little punchy after our fight! -- Bulous

Mime Boggling -- Thanks!  Feel free to keep challenging!  Next time, I'll bring the
big shield. -- Dust

Salinger -- That one was close.  Who made this armor?  I need a better smith! --
Manute Jr.

Red House -- Congrats on the throne, you have fought long and hard, glad you finally
got the respect you deserve. -- Ben's Bazaar

Moshi Haru -- Popularity Leader?  Really?  'Cause you stink to high heaven...and to
low hell as well. -- Ben's Bazaar

Ludus Magnus -- Top Team on the move and Top Unchartered Team, well done.  Maybe this
turn you can add Current Top Team to your wall as well. -- Ben's Bazaar

All Jacked Up II -- Welcome to Sunset, and I would like a Jumbo Jack with cheese, no
pickles please, oh, and hold the onions, too. -- Gentleben and Ben's Bazaar

The Joker's Wild -- Welcome back after a long hiatus, guess we shouldn't have moved
the town while you were sleeping but you did find us, (only took you YEARS), some
times jokes can have adverse reactions, sorry. -- Gentleben and Ben's Bazaar

Murgaroyd -- Catch you on the dark side of the arena. -- Dragon Asp

Questiona -- Your question has been answered, No you are not better than I. -- Smurf
Lightning

Dust -- That was... Mime Boggling

A Spoonful... of short spear up side the head makes the total parry go down, oh the
parry go down. -- Aunt Tilla--The Nun
P.S.  I actually preferred The Sound Of Music.

Heller -- Heller your self, I have better things to do, like fight REAL monsters. --
Bob Scrachit

Kano San -- All joking aside, except for Sir Jessie Jest, not sure about that wierdo,
I do enjoy messing with you.  All in good fun and I hope you stay for the long haul
and lose many many fights to my warriors.  What do you say we bury the hatchet (which
is fine with me cause I got's me another one in the back of the tool shed, shhhhhh),
so what say you, sport. -- Gentleben

Kano San -- Also, not all your dribble is totally with some merrit but I think you do
add to much stock in the red book, but that is just my opinion. -- Gentleben
