                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of TRICORUS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Warriors--remember that glory waits 
always around the corner!  Witness how this week WORLD BLADES 13 went 1-1-0 to move 
up 3 in the rankings.  MONTENEGRO caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested WACHICHU and was awarded 27 points in recognition. 
In one of the week's more notable duels, HELPER put down YOLANDA, causing her to lose 
18 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has MOONDARK in the past 
laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week she's proven hers combat skill 
yet again.  Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he never fights 
without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city TRICORUS.  TRICORUS, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names of thy 
guilds is DARK HORSEMEN, 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 AMAZON 
ELITE last week.  Busy avoiding DARK HORSEMEN?  Mighty fighters cannot but expect 
competition from those below.  SALMGEDAN take warning!  You have more than a few 
enemies in TRICORUS.   
     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?  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off 
city calling to me.  I must away!  Till we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks 
slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.--

took it out on me.  Damn. -- Salmgedan
