                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of IAYE!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Did only my eyes note the 5-0-1 record 
which ALL JACKED UP managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a record 
will draw challengers!  JACK DANIELS caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE and was awarded 17 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, HIPS put down SPECKLE, causing 
him to lose 15 points of recognition in the process.  Although SPUD made a valiant 
effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious SIR CARLSON.  Informants 
"close" to the city champion have told me that he never fights without pantyhose on 
beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In IAYE "art" is a word that has long 
since passed from the language!  IAYE, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names of 
thy guilds is WRESTLMANIACS, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly duels. 
Apparently the stalwarts of LENPROS 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.  HELP ON THE WAY take warning!  You have more 
than a few enemies in IAYE.  I cannot but express pride for the fearlessness of ROLA 
NYAH who cast caution to the winds and challenged MAJOR MARTIN, a fighter 30 points 
higher.  Do not the gods reward courage?  ROLA NYAH it was that claimed victory in 
the bout, while also rising 27 points in recognition.   
     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!   
     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 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

Speckle -- You lucky dog you! -- Jack Hammer

Senator Wiley -- All right, you've beaten my vote out of me!  I would love to try you
bare knuckled, no armor.  If this interests you, diplo or let me know in the
personals when to set up our challenge strategies. -- Jack Knife

Lenpro -- I've been wanting to do a bare knuckle brawl between two strikers since the
90s.  If we decide on a turn and I challenge you and your if-challenged strategy and
my challenge strategy (or vice versa) are done right, it would be a hella-fight!  We
could also ask the other teams not to challenge our two warriors on that turn. -- Dr.
Fil

Her Best Assets -- I am a hard-wired fanatic of the female anatomy, but your lips and
hips are punishing me! -- Dr. Fil

Jack Hammer -- Good try, but, ah, you never did any dog training, did you? -- Speckle

Hips -- You figure that's a great asset?  Wow, you humans are strange!  I always
liked a good set of ears, the dangly kind, myself.  With silky curly hair on 'em,
like, maybe a spaniel type of ear. -- Diggity Dog

Jack Daniels -- I do not think so. -- Fifi Delite
P.S.  It's hard to imagine anyone drinking that for FUN.

Sir Carlson -- Still you do this.  I want something new and different to play with.
-- Spud

Jack the Ripper -- It was probably the bone in your pocket.  I'm just a fool for
bones. -- Moondog

Dr. Fil -- What, me worry? -- Speckle

Sir Carlson -- We shall be almost sorry to see you go, as you have upheld the dignity
of the title of Duelmaster of Iaye for so long and so well (with a few interruptions,
but these things happen).  In prowling through an attic, I have come upon what I am
told is a loving cup, though I would not, myself, call it more than friendly on short
acquaintance.  It occurred to me that, engraved with some suitable sentiment such as
"Remember Iaye!" or, perhaps, "Bottoms up!", it might make a suitable token of the
esteem in which we here at the Iaye arena hold you.  What do you say? -- Arenamaster

     There has been a run lately of personals and columns turning up in the wrong
     arenas.  When you email in something, check and make sure you have the correct
     arena number!  It's easy for a finger to slip onto the wrong key.  When the
     receipt comes back, check again to be sure it went where you intended!
