                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ARVAT!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team THE REPUBLIC was unseated 
this week as SARATOGA GLORY moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with a 
3-2-0 record for the round.  There were bitter words at THE REPUBLIC's guildhouse 
after a 0-0-0 showing this week which dropped the stable into 8th.  Dark Arena 
anyone?  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness how 
this week BARN OF HORRORS went 3-2-1 to move up 5 in the rankings.  Did only my eyes 
note the 4-1-0 record which ROMAN HEROES managed to post this round?  I don't doubt 
that such a record will draw challengers!  MAIM 'N MAMIE caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested THE INVISIBLE PIG and was 
awarded 18 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, EASTER 
GUARDIAN put down BAAAD BOB, causing her to lose 9 points of recognition in the 
process.  Who here was not present for the title fight this week as DREAD boldly 
challenged MESHARR in order to strive for the Duelmasters honors?  This time victory 
fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail DREAD, Duelmaster of ARVAT!  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!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city ARVAT.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  ECLIPSE 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 ECLIPSE.  Indeed it was SARATOGA GLORY.  Loose talk at the arena has reached 
my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after GREATER VRULL. 
Watch your back!  As a gladiator gets older, the icy grip of fear lays hold of his 
heart.  True, VARIUS?  Who could miss your "brave" challenge of GREATER VRULL?  The 
Fates are not kind to the cowardly, as evidenced by the fact that VARIUS was beat by 
GREATER VRULL.  And who can now doubt that GREATER VRULL is a hardy opponent?  Give 
LUCIUS credit for his courage.  Did you note how he challenged BOLT THROWER despite 
the 26 point difference in their rankings?  Do not the gods reward courage?  LUCIUS 
it was that claimed victory in the bout, while also rising 20 points in recognition.  
At the gambling halls I have started to bet money on CANNIBALISTIC COW.  He has got 
the courage it takes.  Witness his challenge this turn against KARLRAK!  The BARN OF 
HORRORS stable will be up late tonight, for indeed it was CANNIBALISTIC COW who 
claimed victory in the contest, ascending 42 in recognition!  For some warriors honor 
is not important--only empty victory.  See, gladiators, how MARCUS of ROMAN HEROES 
challenged down 24 points to HEIMDALL.  The weight of the challenge fell hard upon 
HEIMDALL and predictably he lost to MARCUS.  This is how to arouse the anger of an 
entire guild!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  The warrior's path is harsh.  For 
mediocrity there is but one reward--death.  This past week KARLRAK, at 18-17-1, 
departed ARVAT forever.  Death has again visited the sands of our arena.  
CANNIBALISTIC COW has claimed the life of KARLRAK.  Do any doubt that RILL'S GCSC2 
will seek a bloody revenge?  Must the anguished spirit of SERVIUS toss forever in the 
grave unrevenged?  Against the code, FRENZY has escaped his deed unpunished by 
CAESAR'S THUGS!  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena there 
is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  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

RSI Godlings -- Can I get some help with warrior 4882?  I submitted him as Heimdall,
the Norse guardian god.  He came back as Heimball which is:
A.  A sport I am unfamiliar with
B.  A degenerative groin disease
C.  Some Appalachian dish
D.  A typo by the RSI Godlings
E.  The weekly Viking pick 3 lottery
F.  An instrument used in clothing sweatshops by 3rd world children
-- Kodiak (I have managed a few groin diseases)  Damn did I say that out loud?!

     I passed this along to Customer Service. -- Ed.

Appolonius -- I would call that a very successful bloodfeud.  I had some high hopes
for Futark so you'll understand if we try and feud in kind.  Well done. -- Kodiak

Snowflake -- I'll be trying hard for round 4 this turn.  Hope you're not avoiding me.
-- Slap

Fox -- Ditto.  Even the cute little scums are still scums...what?!?  I didn't invent
the word.  If they were worth their salt they'd've been wastes.  Now there's an
honorable style. -- Scion

The Scouser -- I'm the last Bob standing. (ta-da)  You know, no other style could've
ire'd me so. -- Baaad Bob, The Ire'd Siren

Marcus -- Great fight.  Too much.  Of course the jokes on me, trying to raise stats
at such time only cost me about a dozen skills or so.  And I didn't even get my stat
raise even...oh well, guess I'll just press on.  Wishes down the drain and next
cycle's another game. -- Wrack'm

Greek Guy -- Jeez.  That was a rough welcome back.  Running into 4 of my guys out of
your 5 fights.  And all of them were the worst matchups you could get.  Better luck
next turn! -- the Dark One

Mesharr -- I'm probably not ready for the big time, but if you're willing, I'd like a
title fight.  I'll send a challenge your way! -- Dread

Caesar -- Maybe you should rename your teams the Fighting Artemidorii! -- the Dark
One

Heimball -- I am guessing that you ought to be named Heimdall, not Heimball. -- Good
fight anyway! -- Harry Mann

Rumor of the Week -- The old Imperial Theatre on Canal St. burned down this week
amidst suspicious circumstances.  Word on the street has it that one of the arena
gladiators was once arrested for arson and that he is being sought as a suspect!
More news next week!

31 May 2008
Any and all who live in the 805 area, I would like for you to call me so we can get
together for BBQ's, softball games, and so on.  It has been a while since the last
get together (several years).  It was a blast and I am sure the next one will be
also.  We just have to do it.  All alliances are welcome.  Just because my warriors
leave your warrior beaten and bloody in defeat does not mean we can't have a beer or
five together.  I'll even buy the first round.  So call 805-588-3419 and ask for Dave
a.k.a. Misfit, former member of the Green and Purple Polka Dot Alliance (GAPPDA).
