                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ROCANIS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  My praise to MIDDLE WAY 20 for their 
4-1-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving of 
notice!  FREM HARID caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he 
skillfully bested CULT MEMBER and was awarded 16 points in recognition.  In one of 
the week's more notable duels, DILILAH FRANN put down AIRSLICER DAN, causing him to 
lose 9 points of recognition in the process.  Due to his absence and inability to 
defend the throne, IN HIDING has lost the title of Duelmaster.  This time victory 
fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail DILILAH FRANN, Duelmaster of ROCANIS!  No 
confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their position using 
magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city ROCANIS.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  THEM is feared.  This much I can say.  Apparently the 
stalwarts of INCONSISTENT FURY are catching the bulk of jests down at the challenging 
board for their large share of the avoids.   
     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 ROCANIS 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.--

Dobahei -- What?  I can't even find that in the dictionary! -- Ebria Gannet

In Hiding -- I thought when you got into a fight, you had to come OUT of hiding.
Ouch.  I couldn't see you to hit you, because of all that hiding.  Double-ouch. --
Dililah Frann

Splat -- I wish that was YOU going splat on the sands, and not ME. -- Charlie Eksa

Purple Kitten -- I think I'm going to become an ailurophobe. -- Abelinda Chase

Big 'Un -- Well, darn.  I thought the really big guys were supposed to be slow and
stupid. -- Fren Harid

Rirorni Thug -- You're dead. -- Fonzeth Hilgra

Cult Member -- You're dead. -- Balzac

Rironi Thug - Kilt your buddy you got lucky. -- Ria Rosedancer

Priest of Myteri -- Hum, well okay pretty sharp but if ya get kilt is ther another
priest to chatter the word? -- Air Slicer Dan

     Yes, they're like ants at a picnic, you can't get rid of 'em. -- Arenamaster
     Amel

Abelinda Chase -- Wow that was bloody, yet fun. -- Purple Kitten

Dililah Frann -- Yes dance yes, *grin* bouncy bouncy. -- Air Slicer Dan

Abelinda -- *laugh*  Really so sorry you're having a hard time accessorizing, it is
mighty challenge to mix and match to a 6' kitten...

Jorja -- No contests?  I was pretty sure the messenger mentioned an open ended
contest. *sigh* -- Banthius

     If you want a contest, have a contest, that's no problem.  They just don't seem
     to have a long-term positive effect.  Sometimes the short-term positive is
     enough, though.  Go for it.
