                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ZORPUNT!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  KERMAN JONES caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested ABSORB ALL and was awarded 28 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, KUNG-FU MASTER put 
down IRMEAN, causing him to lose 7 points of recognition in the process.  Due to its 
absence and inability to defend the throne, A. MONK, P.I. has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail ULTIMATE 
SIN, Duelmaster of ZORPUNT!  Informants "close" to the city champion have told me 
that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In ZORPUNT "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when 
this week's challenge seeking began.  KRILL CAVALRY is feared.  This much I can say.  
If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of MONEY 
PIT last week.  Busy avoiding KRILL CAVALRY?   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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 ZORPUNT.  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

Ultimate Sin -- You know, the debate on your true nature has occupied my teammates
for MONTHS.  I'm tired of it.  Frankly, what *I* think is that the ultimate sin for a
gladiator is to lose.  So I'm working on that for myself.  Other gladiators have to
make their own efforts. -- Teri Lark

Irmean -- You may, I say MAY, not have laughed, exactly.  But after you tried to cut
my throat (very unfriendly of you, too), you snickered.  I saw it.  The arenamaster
saw it.  EVERYONE knows what you did.  Bad Cat!  Bad! -- Loren Poole
P.S.  Oh, right, I'm the werecat, you're a Shew.  Well, you're too short to be a
Shew.  Probably jealous of my imposing height, eh?
P.P.S.  Not only stunted, but sinister.  You can't hide the evidence from ME!  A
lefty!

Oozing Sore -- Have you THOUGHT of the implications of that name and your neuter but
non-golem status?  It's enough to give anyone a cold grue!  I, personally, want
nothing at all to do with you, in case it's catching. -- Travis T Flete

Holy Moly -- What the heck?  I girded myself for a real battle with a real warrior
this time, not some dumb beggar, and...this happens? -- Kerman Jones the Indignant
P.S.  I suppose I should have realized what it was going to be like when a couple of
ushers carried you out and propped you up in the middle of the arena.

A Convicted Thief.  Huh.  I wish I'd killed him.  I was ready to. -- Miressea Poole

Miressea Poole -- You're a cruel woman.  I am not so bad as you seem to think; I only
steal from those who have, and when I've taken my percentage for time, labor, and
risk, I give to those who need it.  I am a benefactor here, so be a little more
polite, girl. -- Looshus J. Kittson, technically convicted thief (they got me on a
technicality, not real evidence)

Absorb All -- Welsh on your debts, will you?  My assistants will be calling on you!
-- Kernlho up Sartis, Merchant and Money-Lender
