                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly LYRATILAN games.  STACI caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested GASPAR HUELCO and was awarded 19 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, STACI put down 
GASPAR HUELCO, causing him to lose 18 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.  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!  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when 
this week's challenge seeking began.  HAREM is feared.  This much I can say.  
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.  Mighty fighters cannot 
but expect competition from those below.  BILL BOARD take warning!  You have more 
than a few enemies in LYRATILAN.   
     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!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in LYRATILAN.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires 
of a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till we meet again, remember:  a 
turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its 
prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Melondie Prinn -- My apologies for being so rude. -- Colin

Staci -- That wasn't much fun. -- Gus

Debbie -- Congrats.  Of course, the fewer people we tell about this... the better my
self esteem will be.  The last thing I need is for this to be plasted on some large
board. -- Bill

Simon -- Nice stamina ya got ther buddy. -- Hans

Keokuk Moon -- If I don't start performing a little better... I think my manager is
going to get bent. -- Brent

Padre -- You can be serious about me lightening up if you want to.  The thing is, I
spend so much time hanging out in small, silent arenas, I tend to take a moderately
gloomy view of the whole deal.  Especially when my roof is leaking, then I take a
gloomy view of EVERYTHING.  If you write personals, here or elsewhere, I will
appreciate and enjoy them, but don't do it unless you enjoy it, too.  That's what
you're here for, right?  Having fun.  Of the arenas you listed, I've never been in 82
or 84, and I'm currently inactive in 10, 11, and 21.  Elsewhere, I'm there.  Hmm,
except for 14, where my team is The Doghouse, the others are (I think) all Middle Way
teams. -- Jorja

Two-three?  Hubert really likes those Virginal Concubines, don't know why, they
always keep ME at arm's length.  And Keokuk Moon straightened out Bent Brent
(probably won't last, you have to use an anti-curling iron for it to last).  For the
rest... pah.  Losers.  Even me. -- Gaspar Huelco, writer of The Personal by virtue of
being the Popularity Leader
