                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of TRICORUS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team AMAZON ELITE was 
unseated this week as DARK HORSEMEN moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 3-2-0 record for the round.  WHY caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as she skillfully bested EVERYONE BURNS and was awarded 19 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, MOUNTAIN OF STEEL put down 
WHAT, causing it to lose 16 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing 
has HABU in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week it's proven 
its combat skill yet again.  Would you believe that over half of the old women in 
TRICORUS 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 TRICORUS these days is DARK HORSEMEN.  At least, most blades in town 
are looking to avoid them.  Apparently the stalwarts of AMAZON ELITE are catching the 
bulk of jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing 
is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     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

Yes? -- You lucky little snot!  54 points against Yolanda's 25.  You walk away with
an easy one there.  Will be looking for some luck of our own to get some payback now.
-- Amazons

Okay, A to Z names have been completed first time around.  Will be starting back at A
again soon.  Anybody interested in the breakdown of fight styles for the first 26
Amazons?  Well, none of your business, but rest assured there were no PLs, PSs, or
WSs in the mix.  The 3 most useless styles ever created!  We'll see you on the
sands... little boys. -- Amazon Elite

As an easy send-off, the Veteran Mercenary will do. -- Mahaghal
P.S.  SHORTSWORD?  Are they KIDDING me?

What -- Next? -- Ghost of Kamildsa
P.S.  Accidental, but a successful bloodfeud none the less... for you guys.

Why -- I would never have suspected that! -- Jubhal

Who -- You sound like an owl. -- Galdor O'Hare

Xenolee -- Well, no one ever said this work would be easy.  At least you survived it,
and so did I.  So far. -- Marganad

Answer of the Week:  It's a lion.

18 March 11
All -- Be aware of the comeback of the Cajun and his stables of gladiators!  Just
sayin' -- The Cajun
