     Sorry again, Tuscan Flame...  I'm always a little ashamed to win, but well, the
place is comfy.  Will I still be here in 2013?

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of FRATSFA!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team BLOOD AND GUTS! was 
unseated this week as FLOWER GIRLS moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 2-1-0 record for the round.  HATEFUL HASTA caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested DARGON and was awarded 17 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, HATEFUL HASTA put down DARGON, 
causing it to lose 16 points of recognition in the process.  This time out JASMIN 
made hers bid for the throne as she challenged ZOUM LA BOUSE in an all out contest of 
skill for possession of the title!  The city has turned out in honor of JASMIN, for 
with hers arena victory she may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  
No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their position 
using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In FRATSFA "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  FRATSFA, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the 
names of thy guilds is BLOOD AND GUTS!, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the 
weekly duels.  Apparently the stalwarts of FLOWER GIRLS are catching the bulk of 
jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Loose talk 
at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters 
are after URBAN.  Watch your back!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  SHAMU has sworn to take up religion upon 
living to tell of its recent bout with the Dark Arena horrors.  A rare thing indeed!  
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 next we meet remember - the pen is mightier 
than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Li Kiu -- You are hot with that big weapon!  Wow!  Hot AND smart!  Five skills, a
master, and an expert!  No wonder we hit it off!  Thanks for letting me finish on
top, hotty! -- Caustic Crocus

Jazmina -- After that exciting finish, I may have to seek you out again.  Girls just
wanna have fun, and I did. -- Hateful Hasta

Howling Moon -- It took me a lot of time, and I enjoyed every enduring second.  I
want you again.  Why not come and visit me at The Flower Shoppe? -- Petulant Pansy

Zoum La Bouse -- You're on top again?  Always the same.  You need to try some new
positions.  My gals want to teach you. -- Lady Fern

Brandgon -- We look forward to spending time with you.  Oh, yeah. -- Lady Fern and
The Flower Girls

Jorja -- Get well soon. -- Lady Fern

The "weak but cute" trick has been a very successful attempt to bring back our
scentered splendors! -- LP

Now I will say "cute but weak"!  Zoum is very lazy and will be pleased to welcome all
the gals around the throne.  Deadly Rage just loves my guys. -- LP

Zoum la Bouz -- Thanks.  I may not go to the Isle, though.  I've heard it's crowded,
and beds are at a premium.  I don't think I'm good enough for Jorja to find me a
premium bed. -- Rendor Quil

Caustic Crocus -- I'm glad you had fun.  I was just embarrassed.  I don't think I'm
that kind of woman. -- Salina Rees

Hmm, we seem to have some absentee fighters on (or not on) our team.  I'll have to
look into this. -- Jorja

Dargon -- This is what happens when you don't challenge!  You come up against someone
with more experience and more luck, and whammo!  I expect you to turn the result
around one of these days, though. -- Salina Rees

Zheng Tian Shou -- What the heck?  How could that have happened?  Say it isn't true!
Okay, it is true, but I'm not happy about it.  I'll be here if your teammates come
looking for me. -- Ursila Rilvar
P.S.  Kill desire of five, attacking the arms.
