                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly NIATOLI ISLAND games.  There were bitter words at 
BOOKSHELF's guildhouse after a 0-0-0 showing this week which dropped the stable into 
9th.  Dark Arena anyone?  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the 
corner!  Witness how this week SACKETT'S & CO. went 3-1-0 to move up 5 in the 
rankings.  Did only my eyes note the 5-0-0 record which RAVAGING LORDS managed to 
post this round?  I don't doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  THE 
CRIPPLER caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully 
bested THIMBELL and was awarded 23 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more 
notable duels, EGGPLANT put down SADDLE SORE, causing him to lose 9 points of 
recognition in the process.  The city has turned out in honor of SCREWFACE, 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 NIATOLI ISLAND "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.  DEATH PENALTY is feared.  This much I can 
say.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of 
CAT IN A HAT last week.  Busy avoiding DEATH PENALTY?  Loose talk at the arena has 
reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after 
LONIGAN.  Watch your back!  For some warriors honor is not important--only empty 
victory.  See, gladiators, how LIONESS of CAT IN A HAT challenged down 25 points to 
LONIGAN.  Surprising everyone, LONIGAN won victory over LIONESS, earning 22 points of 
recognition in the process!  A knave's just desserts are the sweetest victory.  
SPROUTS SURPRISE must really be harboring a grudge against the THE SEWING CIRCLE 
guild!  Merciless, 24 challenged down RINTIRISSE points this week to duel with he.  
All the city knows the duel went in favor of SPROUTS SURPRISE.  I shall not fail to 
spread the word in other cities of this "mighty" victory.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Strange what qualities come forth in the 
face of certain doom.  KILL ZONE has the town astir with the news of his Dark Arena 
victory!  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!   
     The girls are as pretty in NIATOLI ISLAND 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

To all -- You will be crushed! -- Gen. Ikillu, Ravaging Lord of the Allied Axis

Lonigan -- You short guys are always so nasty.  Pushy and twitchy and just plain
MEAN.  Is it my fault my momma was a Shew? -- Thimbell

Does anybody realize how truly dangerous our Venomous Concubine is?  She's a Poison
Woman from Serevada!  I recognize the tattoo on her arm. -- Irinkesta

Sprouts Surprise -- Ugh.  They're even more...surprising when they come back. --
Rintirisse

Paranoia -- Ah, yes, the recommended "therapy" for those with many and bitter
enemies. -- Korienellen
P.S.  Because they really ARE out to get you.  Good luck.  You'll need it.

Congratulations to Lonigan, headed for the trail's end! -- the Sewing Circle

Manager -- Stay a while. -- Jorja

11 August 2006
All -- I support Vendetta Cartel's observation of The Dark Knights!  If war is
declared on V.C. by The Dark Knights, then war is also declared on The Dark Knights
of the Desolate Empire by The Avengers of Light!  We have been quietly awaiting such
a chance to expose ourselves (all interested parties contact me c/o The Barbarians:
DM 31, Attn: Timothias)!  Come, Vendetta Cartel, let us show these broke-down
"Knights" what true warriors are! -- Gemini Goldphoenix, Overlord of The Avengers of
Light
