                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ZORPUNT!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team KRILL CAVALRY was 
unseated this week as TRIBE moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot with a 
3-2-0 record for the round.  Q-TIP caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested LITTLE SMIFF and was awarded 18 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, Q-TIP put down LITTLE SMIFF, 
causing him to lose 5 points of recognition in the process.  Although ILL SUBLIMINAL 
made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious T-JON 
LOY.  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 ZORPUNT.   
     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!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till we meet 
again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a 
lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Congratulations to Are You Done, Yet?, who got away on his own feet. -- Jorja and
Krill Cavarly

Two-three, and down we go.  Are we some kind of tide, that we keep ebbing? -- Pearl
Stone

I'd write a column, but a victory over, ah, "Omaha LaRue, Venomous but nobody's
Concubine" doesn't seem like a suitable topic.  Sure, I beat her in the arena, but if
I piss her off, I might find myself facing her in an alley, and THAT is a different
matter. -- T-Jon Loy

Ill Subliminal -- Whatever it was, you communicated it to me, and now *I* need the
chicken soup. -- Pearl Stone

Vibrant Thing -- Well, darn.  You see that bit in the fight report where it said I
was choking on the straps of my armor?  That was when I realized you were a guy, and
I was trying to restrain my scream of frustration.  How could you be a GUY? -- Little
Smiff

Does Nothing -- Yeah, and there *I* was running around frantically trying to make it
look like a FIGHT....  I'm surprised the arenamaster didn't look disgusted at the way
the "fight" was going. -- Pony Stone

That Swing -- Whew, I thought the rope was going to break! -- Clay Poole

                                  LAST WEEK'S FIGHTS

T-JON LOY viciously subdued ILL SUBLIMINAL in a crowd pleasing 4 minute Title fight.
PEARL STONE was subdued by KUNG-FU MASTER in a 2 minute one-sided melee.
LITTLE SMIFF was overpowered by Q-TIP in a 1 minute mismatched duel.
CLAY POOLE was viciously subdued by VIBRANT THING in a popular 10 minute brutal fight.
PONY STONE unbelievably bested THAT SWING in a 2 minute gruesome brawl.
EL SEGUNDO overpowered FRATSFA SLAVE in a 1 minute one-sided struggle.
MEMUE bested EMBEZZLING SCRIBE in a 3 minute gory competition.
