                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly KATI-TEI games.  CHOCK caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested AMBITIOUS GUARD and was awarded 13 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, THE HONEST MERCHANT 
put down FRITILLARY, causing her to lose 4 points of recognition in the process.  
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!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In KATI-TEI "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers 
the miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  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 - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a 
different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

5 Got Picked -- But I can't imagine why.  A worthless lot, all of you. -- Saturn
P.S.  After all, where are the other four?  Eh?  That just SHOWS how worthless they
are, and you are demonstrating your worthlessness here in the arena.  You don't seem
to have a sociable bone in your body.

Really, that Happy Peasant!  He's got frostbitten toes because when they said "come
out with no armor," he came out with (blush) no clothes at all!  (And his toes aren't
all that's frostbitten!)  And he looks so SILLY trying to use his shield as a fig
leaf, since figs don't grow in this climate.  It's enough to make a woman swear off
men! -- Fritillary

Gosh!  I was TRYING to get out of the way, but that Jaywalker just wouldn't wait a
SECOND.  REALLY Ruthless. -- Ghost of Wherefour Willy

After the trouble my teammates have been having with this "Honest Merchant"
character, I'm not SURPRISED that he was so mean and stingy.  It's in character, you
know?  And I hate it, too. -- Chock
P.S.  Just one skill.  Bah.

How can a beggar be polite?  The whole POINT of begging, at least what it looks like
to ME, is to be such a nuisance that people will pay you to go away.  Yes? -- Quinore

Arenamaster Jailon -- You're being paid to waste your time telling me stuff I already
know. -- Parnian

We of the Desolate Empire Alliance want to announce with glad hearts that Heathen
Hatebred is no longer just a friend, but also an alliance-mate.  Heathen brings a lot
with him to our alliance.  His experience, talent, and loyalty will be a great
benefit to us all.  Welcome Heathen; may all our enemies' blood continue to flow
freely! -- Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire
