                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly SOLVEN games.  Former top team MIDDLE WAY 15 was 
unseated this week as SERPENTS HOLD moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 4-1-0 record for the round.  ORON caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested BALISONG and was awarded 25 points in recognition. 
In one of the week's more notable duels, ORON put down BALISONG, causing it to lose 
23 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has JULES in the past laid 
claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week she's proven hers combat skill yet 
again.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their 
position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In SOLVEN "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  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 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:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  
The wise are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Hen of Death -- Oh, please, like I'm going to freak about that when there's four feet
of snow on the ground? -- Dejanna Kalm

Balisong -- A song on Bali... right now, that sounds good.  Warm, sunny, and good. --
Gorlon Inthur

Oron -- I suppose I should talk about something other than the weather, but the
weather is, let's face it, a lot more interesting than any other conversation going
on here.  And the sun is shining at the moment, that always helps. -- Lynnis Nall,
admiring rainbows off the ice crystals

Embezzling Hen -- That's the last time I let you keep my books! -- Korine Orles

Kyranas -- I knew a long time ago, months ago, that this was a career error for me.
You, however, seem to be in the right line of work. -- Fedora Linde
