                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of TRICORUS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  SALMGEDAN caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested KUNG FU MASTER and was awarded 17 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, VENEMOUS CONCUBINE 
put down DEAN, causing him to lose 14 points of recognition in the process.  Although 
WINDSONG made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious 
HANK.  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!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In TRICORUS "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when 
this week's challenge seeking began.  PANSY DIVISION is feared.  This much I can say. 
If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of CODE 
OF STEEL last week.  Busy avoiding PANSY DIVISION?   
     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:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by 
the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

they're against standbys? -- Galdor O'Hare and Before Sunrise
