                                      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.  JAMES DOOLITTLE caught the eye of 
many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested VETERAN MERCENARY and was 
awarded 20 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, CHOCK put 
down ERNEST DERVISHIAN, causing him to lose 7 points of recognition in the process.  
Due to his absence and inability to defend the throne, WHITE RABBIT has lost the 
title of Duelmaster.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail 
CHOCK, 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?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in KATI-TEI these days is WONDERLAND.  At least, most blades in town are 
looking to avoid them.  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 WONDERLAND?  Loose 
talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many 
fighters are after CHOCK.  Watch your back!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Walk proud, warriors of WANDERERS!  By 
striking down ERNEST DERVISHIAN you have avenged the honor of your dead.  Your virtue 
is known to all in KATI-TEI.  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 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

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

The Avengers of Light.  Another VC lackey?  What's the matter VC, are you scared?
Bringing in reinforcements.  It matters not, bring your avengers and they shall be
crushed!  I am Dark Knight Blackstorm and I represent the Desolate Empire and can
easily be found in 8, 28, 31, 47, 54, and 106.  I reply with steel and your women
shall cry when they start the body count!!!!!!!!!  Remember to sign your posts to
whoever from the VC wrote that earlier Ad. -- Dark Knight Blackstorm
