                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of KATI-TEI!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  QUINORE caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested POLITE BEGGAR and was awarded 15 
points in recognition.  Although SATURN made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to 
topple the reign of victorious 5 GOT PICKED.  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.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  I must report the passing of WHEREFOUR WILLY, 
veteran of many duels.  6-6-0 final record His was not illustrious--but death plays 
no favorites.  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 KATI-TEI.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  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 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

White Rabbit -- If you didn't have time for a long fight, you should just have SAID
so.  I would have rearranged the pacing.  But no, you rabbits never plan ahead!
Everything's the last minute and rush rush rush with you! -- Saturn, a tortoise by
nature

Honest Merchant?  Yeah, right!  Like I'd sign anything with HIM after the way he's
been treating Flutterlee! -- Wherefour Willy, not born yesterday

Oh, gos, the Cult Member's eyes blazed.  Glowing red blazes.  That's means he's Very
Bad, doesn't it? -- Fritillary the Probably-Doomed
P.S.  He's setting me up for disaster, I can feel it.

Yeah, well, I never did see what the big deal was about Fratsfans.  I mean, *I* am a
Fratsfan, and people don't go all gooey-eyed and humble around ME.  So why this guy?
He isn't even tall! -- Chock

Thai -- No, you're too tall for me. -- Quinore
P.S.  But at least you were quick.

Parnian -- I have many demands on my time.  Telling someone something he already
knows would be wasting that time. -- Arenamaster Jailon
