                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of LYRATILAN!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team GARBAGE PAIL KIDS 
was unseated this week as SAY MY NAME moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 3-0-0 record for the round.  COLIN 911 caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested MELONDIE PRINN and was awarded 18 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, STACI put down FUN 
GUS, causing him to lose 8 points of recognition in the process.  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.  Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he 
never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     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.  
Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better part 
of last week avoiding HAREM.  Indeed it was GARBAGE PAIL KIDS.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing 
is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off 
city calling to me.  I must away!  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 -- I was not really serious about "lighten up,' just thought it sounded good. 
Hey, Staci got 16 skills out of those 4 fights.  I will take that every time because
I know it will pay off later.  I run in several arenas you run in and I do not know
the name of all your teams, so maybe more than I think.  I am not big on personals,
but could do more.  I will try.  The arenas I run in regularly are 17 (A Unit); 25
(Harem & A Unit); 62 (A Unit); 82 (A Unit); and 84 (Fearsome 5, Fearsome Five & A
Unit).  And I have teams that I run occasionally in 10 (Fearsome Fivesome); 11
(Bayview Extate); 14 (Living Large); 21 (Tomcats); 22 (A Unit); and  36 (A Unit). --
Padre

Keokuk Moon -- Can't touch this! -- Hans Off

Yummy Mummy -- It will take more than that to straigten me out! -- Bent Brent

Two-three, which is good!  No, really.  These new guys, they need to LOSE to
understand their place in the grand scheme of things.  Which is, down at the bottom.
What the heck does this Moon guy, think, becoming favorite on his second turn?  Has
he EARNED it?  Not hardly! -- Gaspar Huelco, feeling put upon

Gaspar thinks MY loss is "good"?  He can think again, or wash dishes for a couple of
weeks.  He only beat a standby, but *I* lost to the duelmaster! -- Melondie Prinn

Listen, the Khalhums Dwarf is TOUGH.  That victory was no sinecure. -- Gaspar Huelco

Earned win or not, here I am defeating a standby also, and if Gaspar won't mention
it, BOTH our team's wins are over standbys.  Not that I mind winning, just... I know
it would be more... more virtuous, maybe, to defeat a managed gladiator.  Oh, well.
-- Hubert Kombun

Hans Off -- The thing is, you dwarves are too hairy or something.  The idea of biting
you is revolting. -- Keokuk Moon

Simon -- Next time we meet, Simon Says I get to win.  Remember that. -- Arizona Bates
