-- Dirty Diapers

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of CLIFFHOME!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  SOLDILLIA VRO caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested JELLY BELLY and was awarded 
10 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, DANGEROUS 
CRIMINAL put down BEDTIME, causing him to lose 12 points of recognition in the 
process.  Most watched of the fights this week, the spotlight was on KORGENDAL FARS 
as he bore arms against the challenge of reigning Duelmaster DIRTY DIAPERS.  Not for 
nothing has DIRTY DIAPERS in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this 
week he's proven his combat skill yet again.  No confirmation, but my sources claim 
that the top team has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons 
perhaps?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city CLIFFHOME.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  SHEWISH CANDY is feared.  This much I can say.  Apparently 
the stalwarts of BASH BROS CHILDREN are catching the bulk of jests down at the 
challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty fighters cannot but 
expect competition from those below.  KORGENDAL FARS take warning!  You have more 
than a few enemies in CLIFFHOME.  For some warriors honor is not important--only 
empty victory.  See, gladiators, how DEFIANCE of BASH BROS CHILDREN challenged down 
17 points to MENDARLIN VORO.  Few would not have guessed the outcome of the bout as 
MENDARLIN VORO was defeated by DEFIANCE.  Is this what passes for courage in 
CLIFFHOME?   
     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!   
     The girls are as pretty in CLIFFHOME as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of 
a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  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.--
