                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly IAYE games.  Former top team I TRAINED THEM was 
unseated this week as THE WARLOCKS moved up from 5th ranking to take the top spot 
with a 2-1-0 record for the round.  There were bitter words at I TRAINED THEM's 
guildhouse after a 0-0-0 showing this week which dropped the stable into 6th.  Dark 
Arena anyone?  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness 
how this week THE WARLOCKS went 2-1-0 to move up 4 in the rankings.  Did only my eyes 
note the 3-1-0 record which LENPROS managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that 
such a record will draw challengers!  LADY HUNTSMAN caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested EARTHQUAKE EXCUSE and was awarded 16 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, LADY HUNTSMAN put 
down EARTHQUAKE EXCUSE, causing it to lose 13 points of recognition in the process.  
Due to hers absence and inability to defend the throne, TRIPLE-X has lost the title 
of Duelmaster.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail 
ENCHANTED, Duelmaster of IAYE!  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 IAYE "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.  GAMEHENDGE is feared.  This much I can say.  
Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better part 
of last week avoiding GAMEHENDGE.  Indeed it was LENPROS.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Let all swords of the city take heed!  
By law, RED DOG GANG has but one remaining week to take their revenge upon C-CUP for 
the slaying of LUISIENNE.  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 IAYE as ever I remembered them....and the fighters as 
ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed a 
stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
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

Arenamaster Penrue -- You Cad!  You put me into THIS "adventure"?  May an albatross
fly above your space and use it for elimination, thereby performing aerial magic upon
you! -- Lord Protector Admiral Iso

Triple -X -- Congratulations on your Duelmaster Title.  I suspect you will be very
difficult to dethrone.  Salute. -- Lenpro

Walt Weiss -- Well, at least you live down to your team name.  That's a relief, I'd
hate to get myself killed when the possibility of graduation beckons from just ahead.
Okay, slight possibility, as I don't have the political points, but still, it IS
possible that I might graduate if I live!  You have to admit that.  And as a famous
manager once said, you can't die if you don't lose. -- Rishteke
P.S.  And you didn't die, either.  That's good, too.

Lee -- You're much too tall.  You can't be Lee.  No way. -- Perrojo

On the Moon -- Gosh, I felt sorry for you, what with you having been "fixed," which
looks more like "broken" to me, but what do I know?  Then you nearly killed me!  See
if I'm ever sorry for you again! -- Bigfoots

Sunlight Splatrz -- Oh, gods, I will NEVER live this down!  Or should that be, "die
this down"? -- Indignant and Confused Ghost of Nonni

Rainy Rain -- Is there any other kind? -- Hitelliene

Lenpro -- What comes after The Face?  The Back of the Head? -- Leeta

Just a reminder to all you online type people.  It is much appreciated if you send
your personals in PLAIN TEXT, rather than HTML or formatted text.  HAL, in his
infinite wisdom, doesn't DO formatting, which means having to unsnarl your personal
ads from bunches of extraneous...stuff.  So, if your e-mailer has a plain text
option, let it be your friend. -- Ed.
P.S.  Sometimes it's the formatted text which makes ads go astray.  Not often, but
sometimes.
