                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of VEASTIAN!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  A BAD LIE caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested KIRVINJ and was awarded 27 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, KHALHUMS DWARF put 
down MELANJI, causing her to lose 15 points of recognition in the process.  Due to 
his absence and inability to defend the throne, BAIN has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  The city has turned out in honor of KIRVINJ, for with his arena victory 
he may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  Heed this!  A seer has 
warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole city shall perish!  Just 
remember...5 or 7!   
     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!  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?  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till next we 
meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

The Big Unit -- Any time you put a ball over one of MY plates at that speed, you will
find yourself eating on the porch.  Off the floor. -- Melanji

M. Chardinee.  Charming in his way, but he doesn't think women should fight in the
arena.  Probably concerned that they will take to fighting in the home when some
insufferable MAN throws his weight around. -- Melanji

Bain -- I never was a fan of order.  Give me a reasonable (not absolute!) amount of
chaos, and I'm going to be happier. -- Kirvinj

A Bad Lie -- That is TOTALLY UNTRUE. -- Kharijanh

I can see why they call him a Dangerous Criminal. -- Lolita Maria

The Osksi Noble made the kind of remarks I don't tolerate.  Besides, he was a goof
with a sword. -- Black Zanjo

                                  LAST WEEK'S FIGHTS
