      That Virginal Concubine just won't quit.  Too bad, because no way I'm going to
let her be the Duel2Dudette here.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of KATI-TEI!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  ERNEST DERVISHIAN caught the eye of 
many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested THAI and was awarded 20 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, QUINORE put down 
LUCIFER, causing him to lose 6 points of recognition in the process.  This time 
victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail WHITE RABBIT, Duelmaster of 
KATI-TEI!  Would you believe that over half of the old women in KATI-TEI seem to feel 
that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city KATI-TEI.  KATI-TEI, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names of thy 
guilds is WANDERERS, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly duels.  If you 
didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of MEDAL OF 
HONOR 26 last week.  Busy avoiding WANDERERS?  Loose talk at the arena has reached my 
ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after FRENCH.  Watch 
your back!   
     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 VELESTEN, veteran of 
many duels.  5-8-1 final record His was not illustrious--but death plays no 
favorites.  I have seen warriors die in youth.  I have seen women cut down in their 
prime.  This week LANGUAGE OF LOVE must mourn the loss of 7-4-0 THAI to MEDAL OF 
HONOR 26.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune but 
sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     The girls are as pretty in KATI-TEI 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 next we meet remember - the pen is 
mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

All -- I support Vendetta Cartel's observation of The Dark Knights!  If war is
declared on V.C. by The Dark Knights, then war is also declared on The Dark Knights
of the Desolate Empire by The Avengers of Light!  We have been quietly awaiting such
a chance to expose ourselves (all interested parties contact me c/o The Barbarians:
DM 31, Attn: Timothias)!  Come, Vendetta Cartel, let us show these broke-down
"Knights" what true warriors are! -- Gemini Goldphoenix, Overlord of The Avengers of
Light
