                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of NIATOLI ISLAND!  Know me for who I am, Zontani 
Sharp Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team CLAN PENDRAGON 
was unseated this week as THE SEWING CIRCLE moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top 
spot with a 5-0-0 record for the round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always 
around the corner!  Witness how this week BATTLE FROGS SO1 went 2-0-0 to move up 3 in 
the rankings.  My praise to THE SEWING CIRCLE for their 5-0-0 week this time out.  
Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving of notice!  HASSIMOR SHOMUR caught 
the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested FLOUR CHILD 
and was awarded 11 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, 
HASSIMOR SHOMUR put down FLOUR CHILD, causing her to lose 9 points of recognition in 
the process.  Although VENOMOUS CONCUBINE made a valiant effort, it did not suffice 
to topple the reign of victorious HEADLESS NORSEMAN.  Informants "close" to the city 
champion have told me that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  
Watch out!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  BAD BREAD 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 BAD BREAD.  Indeed it was HALLOWIENERS.  Mighty 
fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  KURELLEU ZIEN take warning! 
You have more than a few enemies in NIATOLI ISLAND.  A match that raised a few 
eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that ARD-RI PENDRAGON posted a challenge 
against the more highly recognized KURELLEU ZIEN.  The results, you ask?  Well, the 
firebrand ARD-RI PENDRAGON was bested by KURELLEU ZIEN.  Remember warriors, this is 
the discipline of steel.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune 
but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     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 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

Jorja and the Sewing Circle -- Thank you for the greetings and hello to you.  Clan
Pendragon might be the top team on Niatoli Island; however, I'm impressed with the
number of top stables you manage:  Dullens, Chimlevtal, Murska, Veastian, Dayla Kiv,
Zukal, Zuwayza, Dal Shang, and Jade Mountain.  Wow, must be a very popular manager.
How do you have so much success?  Any advice would be great. -- Myrddin

Clan Pendragon has stables at North Fork (DM-47) and Niatoli Island (DM-33), so we
will not compete in this Turf War. -- Myrddin

At least I got to annoy the Kung-Fu Master on my way out.  I don't much like
kungfusians, you know.  They're sneaky. -- Salorima Tiransith

I feel we should do something drastic with these Dangerous Criminals.  They're, ah,
dangerous, you know? -- Tavelshan Kethal

Headless Norseman -- That's very off-putting, you know.  I'm fairly sure it isn't
good for you to go around with no head. -- Hassimor Shomur
P.S.  And I know it isn't good for me!

The Userous Merchant is a piker. -- Karinirina

And the Osksi Noble is a joke. -- Kurelleu Zien
