                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of MURSKA!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  My praise to CHILDREN OF LLYR for their 
4-1-1 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving of 
notice!  EVINDAL caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he 
skillfully bested MANDOLIN WIND and was awarded 16 points in recognition.  In one of 
the week's more notable duels, EVINDAL put down MANDOLIN WIND, causing him to lose 11 
points of recognition in the process.  Although KUNG-FU MASTER made a valiant effort, 
it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious MURSKAN PATRIOT.  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 MURSKA "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and 
it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after MAIRE MCANGUS.  Watch your 
back!  For some warriors honor is not important--only empty victory.  See, 
gladiators, how FROSTBITE of URBAN JUNGLE challenged down 22 points to TAMRA KAI.  
Few would not have guessed the outcome of the bout as TAMRA KAI was defeated by 
FROSTBITE.  Is this what passes for courage in MURSKA?   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  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!   
     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 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

Lucy Jordan -- Yeah, I know, "It's a jungle out there."  I'm a stay-at-home, out-of-
the-jungle kind of guy. -- Evindal

Frostbite -- Not a chance.  Too bad, in a way.  I don't want to be frostbitten, of
course, but cool... that I could deal with. -- Tamra Kai

Again the Fratsfa Slave.  I do wonder about this. -- Brendal

     Lots of people wonder about it.  Fratsfa slaves everywhere.  Probably part of
     some exceedingly subtle plot.

Bilbo -- Shouldn't you be shorter? -- Harec O'Kai

Modranect -- A cool name in its mysteriousness, but I'd rather win the fight. --
Maire McAngus

Our congratulations to Murskan Patriot. -- Jorja and the Children of Llyr

Murskan Patriot -- Your loyalty is appreciated.  However, since you are so devoted to
the Murskan interests, you will realize that giving you some kind of "lands," of
which you would necessarily be an absentee landlord, would not be in the best
interest of the city-state.  We salute your success and wish you well on the Isle. --
