                                      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.  DIRTY HOWEL caught the eye of 
many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested PEEP and was awarded 12 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, DIRTY HOWEL put down 
PEEP, causing him to lose 7 points of recognition in the process.  Due to his absence 
and inability to defend the throne, EATEN ALIVE! has lost the title of Duelmaster.  
The city has turned out in honor of DIRTY HOWEL, for with his arena victory he may 
now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  Would you believe that over half 
of the old women in NIATOLI ISLAND seem to feel that they could fight better than you 
gladiators?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in NIATOLI ISLAND these days is THE SEWING CIRCLE.  At least, most 
blades in town are looking to avoid them.  Apparently the stalwarts of ERRATA are 
catching the bulk of jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the 
avoids.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and 
assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in NIATOLI ISLAND.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  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 - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is 
a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Eaten Alive! -- I never did care for that way of eating oysters.  Of course, I never
did care for oysters all that much, either. -- Dirty Howel

Damned Dangerous Criminal. -- Lazy Logs

I won't damn the Captured Orc, I'll just blow him away. -- Windmill Willy
P.S.  He kept trying to wipe his feet on the quilt.  Can't have that.

The Ambitious Guard is a fool. -- CraZy Daizy

My, this Mordant Deserter is a nervous fellow! -- Grandma's Fan
P.S.  Maybe he should have some hot milk and go to bed.

Note -- We are still looking for additional teams in Arvat, DM 32.  I still have a
number of good team rollups available FREE for whoever wants one.
     Contact the Devil Advocates ASAP to join the fun!  You can either reach me by
diplo or on the RSI site.
     Also, whoever sent me the diplo with no name on it requesting a rollup /
information on how to get into Arvat, I'm embarassed to admit that the diplo slipped
out of my folder and was lost.  Please just send me another one with your mailing
address and I'll get a rollup to you ASAP.  Sorry about that!
