                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of LYRATILAN!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Warriors--remember that glory waits 
always around the corner!  Witness how this week ERRATA went 3-2-0 to move up 3 in 
the rankings.  Not for nothing has GIGLIE in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's 
throne, and this week he's proven his combat skill yet again.  Would you believe that 
over half of the old women in LYRATILAN seem to feel that they could fight better 
than you gladiators?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city LYRATILAN.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  MADTOWN 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 ERRATA last week.  
Busy avoiding MADTOWN?  Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but 
confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after CHAVIN DE HUANTAR.  Watch your 
back!  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that 
CHAVIN DE HUANTAR posted a challenge against the more highly recognized HARMONY.  The 
results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand CHAVIN DE HUANTAR overcame HARMONY.  Remember 
warriors, this is the discipline of steel.  I can not but mention with disdain the 
name of CROWN ROYAL who this week posted a challenge to a warrior a full 8 points 
below in the rankings.  I thought CROWN ROYAL showed great skill and promise when he 
beat CORAL EDEN.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  I must report the passing of EKBARD 
INGORISH, veteran of many duels.  4-5-0 final record His was not illustrious--but 
death plays no favorites.  WOLFHOUND must hold silent, for this week he was humbled 
in the arena by a successful Bloodfeud won by HIPPOLYTA of AMAZONS.  Hail HIPPOLYTA 
for thy victory!  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune 
but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     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

Vince -- One more hit and I would have had my first kill. -- Sheza Banshee

Dingo -- You remind me of a dog I had to put down.  Not at all easy, but it had to be
done. -- Coral Eden

Flex -- That was good for me.  Hope you got something out of it. -- Chavin De Huantar

Jifi -- Sweet, you are a good Servant.  My Lord Kjarran will provide good fortune for
you. -- Xocotl from beyond

Ekbard Ingorish -- I'm starting to impress myself.  I just may be unstoppable.  What
do you think? -- Demsiado Pesado

Jorja -- Kjarran is the One True God, the God of All.  All other gods are false.  But
you know this already.  Why do you resist?  Bow down to my Lord Kjarran. -- Noachian,
Servant of Kjarran, mgr. Great Unknown

Doberum Hannis -- A trip to Caleam would be wonderful.  But we must be careful.  If
Master Noachian finds out he'd have both our hides.  Still, I'm willing to chance it
for a good meal. -- Demsiado Pesado

Demsiado Pesado -- Aside from a slight whiff of fishiness about your person, I find
you charming, young lady.  Well, and aside from that rather bloodthirsty cult you
profess, but nobody's perfect.  What are you doing this evening?  Care to come by the
Infirmary and soothe my fevered brow with your cool and fishlike hands? -- Ekbard
Ingorish

Giglie -- Splendid!  I'm sure that what Lyratilan needs to stir things up is a
tortoise on the top.  It's all yours. -- Erhlie Fay, retiring

Fluid -- Urg.  It's impossible to pin you down! -- X. Rolph Tupp
P.S.  And if I can't pin you down, I can't suck your blood.  This isn't something one
does with a constantly twitching target, not unless one is prepared to deal with
broken teeth, which one is NOT.

Chris Peeze -- Wow, snap, crackle, and pop!  This is so cool, like walking on bubble-
wrap. -- Doberum Hannis, fan of the simple pleasures

The Shiftyeyed Volunteer... (sigh)  Rather a joke.  He can't hit very well, because
he can't focus on a target long enough to follow through. -- Trellin Xiss
P.S.  Just as well.

White Spider -- Sometimes, we aim to please instead of injure.  Hasta la pasta,
friend. -- Erhlie Fay

Sheza Banshee -- Well, if you must, but it's more fun to leave them alive and
parasitize on them. -- X. Rolph Tupp

Korhoun, Member in Good Standing of the Cult of the Twisted Tree -- "Steaming
entrails"?  I don't THINK so. -- Doberum Hannis

Wolfgang Talman, Ambitious Guard -- Er, no.  I was just trying to encourage myself.
-- Ekbard Ingorish
