                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of LYRATILAN!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Did only my eyes note the 4-1-0 
record which THE MIDDLE WAY 4 managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a 
record will draw challengers!  FUN GUS caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested HAPPY PEASANT and was awarded 16 points in 
recognition.  Not for nothing has DMX in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's 
throne, and this week he's proven his combat skill yet again.  No confirmation, but 
my sources claim that the top team has gained their position using magical aids.  
Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In LYRATILAN "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat 
in LYRATILAN these days is HAREM.  At least, most blades in town are looking to avoid 
them.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any 
of GARBAGE PAIL KIDS last week.  Busy avoiding HAREM?   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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!  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

Jorja -- Yeah, low participation in an arena really hurts our record.  We have 9
fights and get matched with those who have 35 or more.  But it is not all bad.
Another 4 skills and a expert rating helps.  And it helps your record.  4 straight
wins for your team vs mine.  Lighten up, okay. -- Padre

Lori -- Wow!  An actual opponent?  Than in and of itself is worthy of a personal ad.
Too bad I really do not have much to say. -- Colin 911

Four-one, with Josh, that dummy, losing to Dmx (I still don't know how to say that
name), and everybody else winning... three over standbys.  Well, it could be a lot
worse!  Although... two new recruits at once?  Jorja will have a FIT, she hates
recruiting.  I guess we just hope for the best. -- Gaspar Huelco, designated writer
