                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of CALEAM!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  SEETHER caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested BETTEY DECKER and was awarded 14 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, KUNG-FU MASTER put 
down SPUD LOOMIS, causing him to lose 13 points of recognition in the process.  Due 
to his absence and inability to defend the throne, BAKED FRATSFA has lost the title 
of Duelmaster.  The city has turned out in honor of SPUD LOOMIS, for with his arena 
victory he may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  Heed this!  A seer 
has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole city shall perish!  
Just remember...5 or 7!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In CALEAM "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat 
in CALEAM these days is GOLDEN CANYON.  At least, most blades in town are looking to 
avoid them.  Apparently the stalwarts of SATAN'S SERPENTS 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.  JELLIA BOONE take warning!  
You have more than a few enemies in CALEAM.  At the gambling halls I have started to 
bet money on BATTLIN' RATTLER.  He has got the courage it takes.  Witness his 
challenge this turn against JELLIA BOONE!  I must admit to some joy.  Before my very 
eyes the underdog in this contest, BATTLIN' RATTLER, defeated JELLIA BOONE to claim 
victory and recognition.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  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 CALEAM 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

Excuse me?  I'm "a relative slow fighter," but I'm "quick on my feet"?  How is this
possible?  But at least I'm graduating, FINALLY. -- Pascella

Seether -- As a cooking technique, that's... limited.  Not useless, but limited.
Come around to the kitchen and I'll show you some other options. -- Bettey Decker

Baked Fratsfa -- Ta ta.  Nothing matters now, I've graduated! -- Pascella
P.S.  Oh, well, I *will* make a comment:  use thinner pastry.  You'd be surprised the
difference it will make.

Noble Assassin?  That's the brandy from Arkers, right?  Useless to me.  Who ever
heard of putting brandy in potatoes? -- Spudd Loomis

I'm not so sure that Merchant was an Honest one. -- Jellia Boone
P.S.  He certainly was a tedious one!

Remind me never to accept help from that Shiftyeyed Volunteer again!  I asked him, a
simple thing, to keep an eye on the sauce I was simmering.  And did he?  No, he was
looking everywhere else!  It SCORCHED! -- Barbecue Bob
