                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of TROCAR!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team STREET-SOLDIERS was 
unseated this week as USELESS TOOLS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 3-2-1 record for the round.  YAHOO WAHOO caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as it skillfully bested KORASIM and was awarded 21 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, YAHOO WAHOO put down KORASIM, 
causing him to lose 13 points of recognition in the process.  Most watched of the 
fights this week, the spotlight was on GRALL ONE-EAR as he bore arms against the Dark 
Arena Challenge of reigning Duelmaster NO-STICK TAPE.  Although GRALL ONE-EAR made a 
valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious NO-STICK TAPE.  
Would you believe that over half of the old women in TROCAR seem to feel that they 
could fight better than you gladiators?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city TROCAR.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  SAI FULLAH 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 USELESS TOOLS last 
week.  Busy avoiding SAI FULLAH?  Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and it 
but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after YAHOO WAHOO.  Watch your 
back!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  NO-STICK TAPE has sworn to take up religion upon living to tell of 
its recent bout with the Dark Arena horrors.  A rare thing indeed!  My sources at 
STREET-SOLDIERS stable claim they've never seen the guild bitterer.  This as a result 
of the untimely demise of HELL BOY.  Beware LAST OCCASION!  HELL BOY must hold 
silent, for this week he was humbled in the arena by a successful Bloodfeud won by 
LAST OCCASION of EXTRADITION.  Hail LAST OCCASION for thy victory!  Fate is a fickle 
mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the 
victorious.  Remember this!   
     The girls are as pretty in TROCAR as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  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.--

Extradition -- Them two challenges was a mistake on my part but in any event them two
wins was a good job. -- Street Soldiers
P.S.  Do not get bold and try me again, cause I told you it was a mistake.

Man Meet Soul -- Do not worry about it cause I been told by people that I hit like
[A-Rod]. -- Hell Boy
P.S.  Rest in peace.

Last Occasion -- If you are looking to be train by someone I know someone name
[Darkface] will train you for saying "the Jets are the best!"  If not, next time you
won't be so lucky. -- Hell Girl 

Sai Fullah -- Watch what you say and wish for cause the Streets are watching.
Quality team?  Last time I check my team was the top team.  I guess you must learn
the hard way. -- Street Soldiers

Mateen -- Don't look behind you cause here I come. -- Hell Boy
P.S.  Just tell me I am the best and I won't slap you around.

Dawud -- Did you ever think [hell] will come to you?  Well don't turn around now
cause I'm going to send you there soon. -- Hell Girl

Lugman, Zakariya -- Can you guys fight?  Or are you guys scared.  I do have a
question, are you guys men or women? -- Street Soldiers

Extradition -- You're right, never never trust a devil. -- Darkface
P.S.  O.S. well that was fast!  Good job or what?
P.S.S.  David Ortiz on steroids.  I ain't never lie!

Darkface -- The truth is the real estate over which we must be prepared to die, for a
lie is far more dangerous, not only to ourselves but to our collective consciousness.
-- Son of Sin...

Darkface -- If a man loses his word, does he have the right to still be viewed as
such?  I would hope not! -- Son of Sin...

Darkface -- Your yellow blood runs deep;  I'm guessing your warriors are no
different!  See you soon. -- Son of Sin...

"Street Soldiers" -- If your warriors can fight as well as they flap their traps, you
might just win a duel.  I got that. -- Sa'Fullah

Hell Toy -- Oops!  Meant boy.  Don't threaten me with a good time. -- Mateen

Hell Squirrell -- I'm not into that sand thing.

Yaw Blueface, chow lightface or whatever your name is:  Stay in your league.  You're
not in mine.

No-Stick Tape -- Lot of that around.  Can you stick to the title? -- Korasim

Call me a bigot, but I do NOT think they should let hairy little dwarves be monks and
study kung-fu. -- Vardin Abeq

Mateen -- Challenge, avoid, wear armor.  Remember these things. -- Samildar

Ha. -- Emnar Gorin

Ambitious for what?  To be the next Guard buried up on the hill? -- Allerdae Chan

Khalil's Ghost -- It was probably your effervescent personality. -- Allerdae Chan

Congratulations to No-Stick Tape, who apparently is NOT going to be sticking to the
title. -- Jorja and the Traders of Trocar

We salute Trocar's tourney participants. -- Jorja and the Traders

Useless Tools -- Ah... we seem not to have officially noticed--beyond handing you the
graduation papers--that two of you reached the minimum standards for the Isle last
month.  And now another one has done so.  The whole business seems useless to me, but
I can go along with a joke.  You want lands?  Fine, are you ready to fight for them?
Because there's plenty of land out there south of town:  the Shagornan Desert or the
Rirorni Plains or whatever you want to call it.  Go for it. -- Arenamaster Jareth
Okara
P.S.  But if you stir up the tribes to war, YOU have to bear the brunt.  We won't be
responsible.

No-Stick Tape -- I did make an actual attempt to offer you a graduation gift (I have
witnesses!), but you couldn't seem to keep a grip on it.  Too bad.  It wasn't much,
but it was good. -- Arenamaster Jareth Okara
