                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of SOLVEN!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  I could not but notice the fine record for 
HENPCS (5-0-0) after their first round of combat.  May the gods of war favor you in 
SOLVEN!  GORLON INTHUR caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he 
skillfully bested TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE and was awarded 15 points in recognition.  In 
one of the week's more notable duels, DOLLYROT put down JILIAN NORMAN, causing her to 
lose 8 points of recognition in the process.  Although CHAWLIE ISTTA made a valiant 
effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious HATE MY LIFE.  Would you 
believe that over half of the old women in SOLVEN seem to feel that they could fight 
better than you gladiators?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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 SOLVEN.  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

Dollyrot -- That's what happens when you stuff the doll bodies with sawdust. -- Hotl
Muschel
P.S.  Hey, you thought I didn't know anything?  I have friends and I listen to 'em.
You might try it sometime.

Hate My Life -- Your loss.  I like mine just fine. -- Jilian Norman

Khalhums Dwarf.  Damn.  Not only did he win, he didn't teach me a single skill.  Not
one! -- Chawlie Istta

Chawlie -- The Dwarf taught me one, perhaps because I'm not a know-it-all. -- Eldon
Kree

J-Woww -- Bad cat! -- Gorlon Inthur

All -- I know you all thought the old Wiz that is Fiz went off to die somewhere.
Well, I didn't.  Now I'm back to befuddle and frustrate you with my senseless
ramblings.  I look forward to reconnecting with all my old friends and enemies alike.
