                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly SOLVEN games.  KYNGRATH MOR caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested PLUCKED SCRIBE and was awarded 12 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, GILLY MANDERSON put 
down ROOST KEEPER, causing him to lose 1 points of recognition in the process.  Due 
to its absence and inability to defend the throne, BALISONG has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail KORINE 
ORLES, Duelmaster of SOLVEN!  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 SOLVEN.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  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!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I 
keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  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

All -- Good luck in the October Tournament, may you all return untouched by the dead.
Looking for my third TV in the Adepts, I should have a shot at the TC, we shall see.
-- Kyngrath

Hen -- A parry and a riposte skill, yuck. -- Kyngrath Mor

All -- I am hoping to retool the team soon. -- Grimm

     This should be interesting.  We'll watch closely.

Balisong -- I can't dance to that one. -- Lynnis Nall

If that's a Virginal Concubine, well, I just don't believe it. -- Korine Orles

Roost Keeper -- Looks to me like you stepped in a nest of eggs.  Very messy. -- Gilly
Manderson

And two nominally Trustworthy Scribes defeated, too.  Good. -- Holm Joubert and Erris
Leona
