                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ROCANIS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team SKULL SQUADRON was 
unseated this week as CLONE WARS moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot with 
a 4-0-0 record for the round.  There were bitter words at MIDDLE WAY 20's guildhouse 
after a 0-5-0 showing this week which dropped the stable into 6th.  Dark Arena 
anyone?  SILMIS VEY caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he 
skillfully bested RIRORNI MYSTIC and was awarded 15 points in recognition.  In one of 
the week's more notable duels, MACROS THE BLACK put down NEWTON PYNE, causing him to 
lose 12 points of recognition in the process.  This time victory fell to the grasp of 
the usurper.  All hail SERGEANT 2, Duelmaster of ROCANIS!  Heed this!  A seer has 
warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole city shall perish!  Just 
remember...5 or 7!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In ROCANIS "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.  THEM is feared.  This much I can say.  
Apparently the stalwarts of SKULL SQUADRON 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 NEWTON 
PYNE.  Watch your back!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  NEWTON PYNE must hold silent, for this week he was humbled in the 
arena by a successful Bloodfeud won by MACROS THE BLACK of MEN OF STEEL.  Hail MACROS 
THE BLACK for thy victory!  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!   
     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.--

Scythe -- Congratulations on the invite! --  Grimwood, mgr. Skull Squadron

Jommy -- I'm not sure if that combination was intentional, but it seemed to work.  It
had me so confused I couldn't hit the broadside of a barn.  Congratz on the win and
thanks for the five skills. -- Mytori Priest

Macros the Black -- Whew!  Desperation parries for the win.  Something tells me I
picked the wrong style and a re-match would end differently. -- Black Steel, adding
you to the avoid list.

Silmis Vey -- It's official!  The quarterstaff is unorthodox for a lunger.  Wait, I
didn't request to duel with a quarterstaff.  Anyway, lucky for you it didn't break as
I had a back-up war hammer... wait, I didn't ask for a war hammer, either. -- One Eye
P.S.  Everyone, the lunger/basher strategy is an utter failure.  Do not use!

The Middle Way -- Feel free to chatter as it makes the arena more fun.  Besides, I
like to hear from fellow managers. -- Grimwood, mgr Skull Squadron

Rocanis -- No team spotlight this turn.  There was a problem with the routing on the
envelope being cut-off and I didn't receive it until the following Friday.  The mail
carrier will be sent to the Dark Arena on the next transgression.  Be warned! --
Grimwood, mgr. Skull Squadron

Formalities must be respected, wherefor we congratulate The Scythe. -- Jorja and
Those Who Walk the Middle Way

One-four, but there are enough warriors fighting here, we can shut down again soon.
-- Elin Gallio
