                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of TROCAR!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  PRIMAL caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested HARAZIM KOREH and was awarded 25 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, TONG PAK FU put down 
WERETIGER, causing her to lose 21 points of recognition in the process.  This time 
victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail WERE BEAR, Duelmaster of TROCAR!  
Would you believe that over half of the old women in TROCAR seem to feel that they 
could fight better than you gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In TROCAR "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.  KIWI CONNECTION II is feared.  This much I can 
say.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better 
part of last week avoiding KIWI CONNECTION II.  Indeed it was ASIAN INVASION.   
     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!   
     The girls are as pretty in TROCAR as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  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.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Our congratulations to Albert. -- Jorja and the Traders of Trocar

Wild-Eyed Fanatics are not at their best on the sands.  Too erratic. -- Worzeel

Tong Pak Fu -- Ah?  Oh.  Not kung-fu, huh.  That's okay, I don't like kung-fu,
either. -- Harazimg Koreh
P.S.  Good learns, though.  Thanks.

Dacre -- Ouch.  That doesn't make me look good.  Hmm, I can't claim you "out-
experienced" me, and it wasn't a bad style match for me, and... damn, maybe I just
flubbed it. -- Levandar

Guan Uy -- Someone hates you, but it isn't me. -- Aline Taras

Dian Wei -- Didn't we just do this? -- Desert Pearl
