                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of CLIFFHOME!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  PRINCE ALBERT caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and was 
awarded 20 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, KOBE put 
down NILISMARIN SALM, causing him to lose 12 points of recognition in the process.  
Cold and lifeless, former Duelmaster WRATH will fight no more!  VONSITAN KORV has 
slain him!  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 CLIFFHOME.  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in CLIFFHOME 
these days is APOCALYPSE.  At least, most blades in town are looking to avoid them.  
Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better part 
of last week avoiding APOCALYPSE.  Indeed it was TEAM FLOYD.  As a gladiator gets 
older, the icy grip of fear lays hold of its heart.  True, WHAT'S A VOLKSIE??  Who 
could miss your "brave" challenge of FAITH?  All the city knows the duel went in 
favor of WHAT'S A VOLKSIE?.  I shall not fail to spread the word in other cities of 
this "mighty" victory.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Look no more for HORSEMAN in the arena or on the 
streets of CLIFFHOME.  His fate was sealed in the Dark Arena.  Inevitable for one at 
8-9-2.  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena there is only 
the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in CLIFFHOME as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  More than a sharp eye must I 
keep, indeed a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari 
await me!  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

Our congratulations to Wrath. -- Jorja and Jinda-Ban

Eagle's Claw -- You aren't Stabbing Eastward, but you'll do. -- Kevsilessa Kiro
P.S.  But when you cleave downward and hit me on the pelvis, it makes me wonder where
the top of my body was.  And is now.

Deliverence -- Why, thank you!  I didn't actually believe that stuff about "style
advantage," but maybe I'll have to re-think that. -- Nilismarin Salm

Baskerville Pig -- I like you with an apple in your mouth. -- Vonsitan Korv

Horseman -- That's the problem with horses, you can't bring them into the arena.  And
if your fighting identity is based on the horse, well, you're in trouble. --
Trokressa Salm

Scourge -- Oh... I thought they said you were "Scrouge"!  Such a small change, such a
big difference. -- Logranal Maur
