                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of LYRATILAN!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  OTIS 2 caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as it skillfully bested POLITE BEGGAR and was awarded 15 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, GASPAR HUELCO put 
down STACI, causing her to lose 3 points of recognition in the process.  Due to its 
absence and inability to defend the throne, ELECTRIC SHEEP has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  The city has turned out in honor of WYANADA ZOAR, for with hers arena 
victory she may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  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.  LYRATILAN, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names of 
thy guilds is HAREM, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly duels.  
Apparently the stalwarts of GARBAGE PAIL KIDS are catching the bulk of jests down at 
the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Loose talk at the arena 
has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after 
MELONDIE PRINN.  Watch your back!   
     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!   
     The girls are as pretty in LYRATILAN as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  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

Well!  Three-two, and one of our wins was over a managed gladiator!  As were both
losses, of course.  But still, Staci, I give you my sincere thanks. -- Melondie Prinn
P.S.  And I would think the five skills I taught you compensate well for the loss,
yes?
