                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly LYRATILAN games.  Warriors--remember that glory waits 
always around the corner!  Witness how this week FUNKY FOLK went 2-0-1 to move up 6 
in the rankings.  QUIA SALIAN caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission 
as she skillfully bested VISITING ORC and was awarded 9 points in recognition.  In 
one of the week's more notable duels, RICK O'SHEA put down BELTRAN FOSS, causing him 
to lose 4 points of recognition in the process.  Although BRON CHOLLU made a valiant 
effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious WE LIKE THE MOON.  Heed 
this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole city 
shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city LYRATILAN.  LYRATILAN, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names of 
thy guilds is OSCO INTOXICATORS, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly 
duels.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the 
better part of last week avoiding OSCO INTOXICATORS.  Indeed it was SPONGMONKEYS.  
Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that 
many fighters are after BELTRAN FOSS.  Watch your back!   
     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!   
     The girls are as pretty in LYRATILAN as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of 
a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is 
mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Ah, that Khalhums Dwarf is a touchy fellow!  I had a buckle break on my armor and
said I'd be with him "shortly," and he took offence.  Thought I was making a joke
about his height, but I assure you, the height of the Khalhums Dwarf is no laughing
matter! -- Bron Chollu

The Veteran Mercenary?  Bah.  Veteran of patty-cake with the girls? -- Velond Wok

And the insanely Happy Peasant, which makes us three standbys out of four fights.  Do
we need to smile more? -- Quia Salian

Ghost of Pill -- Well, gee, I didn't mean to do that.  Sure, I have a deep dislike of
large pills, but grinding you to powder was not on my list of Things To Do Today. --
