                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ILLIS games.  Former top team ILL AVENGERS was 
unseated this week as IMPROVED ILLUSION moved up from 4th ranking to take the top 
spot with a 5-0-0 record for the round.  There were bitter words at ILL AVENGERS' 
guildhouse after a 0-0-0 showing this week which dropped the stable into 10th.  Dark 
Arena anyone?  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness 
how this week SEA DOGS went 4-1-1 to move up 5 in the rankings.  My praise to HELTER 
SKELTER for their 4-1-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round 
deserving of notice!  EVANGELION caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as she skillfully bested JUDAS PRIEST and was awarded 27 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, EVANGELION put down JUDAS 
PRIEST, causing him to lose 30 points of recognition in the process.  Unwilling to 
wait upon the will of others, Duelmaster LONDON QUIREBOY challenged DUFF last week in 
a match to decide the fate of the throne.  Although DUFF made a valiant effort, it 
did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious LONDON QUIREBOY.  Informants 
"close" to the city champion have told me that he never fights without pantyhose on 
beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In ILLIS "art" is a word that has long 
since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in 
ILLIS these days is ILL AVENGERS.  At least, most blades in town are looking to avoid 
them.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the 
better part of last week avoiding ILL AVENGERS.  Indeed it was CHAPEL ROCK.  Mighty 
fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  I MOTHER EARTH take 
warning!  You have more than a few enemies in ILLIS.  WISE OLD WAYNE must really be 
harboring a grudge against the ISLANDERS guild!  Merciless, 26 challenged down 
WIMPIRA points this week to duel with he.  Surprising everyone, WIMPIRA beat WISE OLD 
WAYNE, earning 20 points of recognition in the process!  A knave's just desserts are 
the sweetest victory.  I cannot but express pride for the fearlessness of TYPHOID who 
cast caution to the winds and challenged BLACKBEARD, a fighter 29 points higher.  
Truth to tell, TYPHOID did not come out of the fight a winner, but he managed to 
capture much attention, gaining 5 in recognition.  I can not but mention with disdain 
the name of I'M POWERLESS who this week posted a challenge to a warrior a full 8 
points below in the rankings.  I thought I'M POWERLESS showed great skill and promise 
when it defeated AXE MISSER HAMMER.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  This week marked the last days of REX X who at 6-7-0 was dispatched 
to the Dark Arena by the command of HELTER SKELTER's demanding management.  My hearty 
congratulations HABAKKUK, for thy revenge upon GORI BLOODAXE, slayer of thy fallen 
comrade.  Next time he will know better, eh?  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and 
assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     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:  a fool flies into a 
rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani

Kat -- You're most welcome.  I expected a 4 turn BF.  I was getting close to the
right strat, but just wasn't skilled enough yet. -- Hezrou

All -- Inex 9-12-11-13-15-13-11, PL, learned less than 1 per fight.  I told myself I
wouldn't DA anyone till they got to 5 losses and I let Inex get to 6, off to the DA!
-- Tripwire

All -- Yet another winner from Tripwires stable: Rutterkin -- 15-15-18-6-15-8-7 BA,
just lovely!  Hosed on damage too!  Hopefully the replacements for these guys will be
worth the point loss of DAing! -- Tripwire

All -- Give Kanga and Leonovna a welcome to the arena, they are the newest Damage
Inc'ers -- Tripwire (hoping to salvage at least a top 5 by the end of this thing)

Krunk -- I am going to give it a shot on decise alone. -- Blackrock

Death Fest Fanatics -- I am busy with real life situations overseas in addition to
the final computations of the Madness Prize Allocations from the final round of the
Madness contest in DM 28.  Will turn my attention to updating scores for the Death
Fest ASAP when I get the time! -- Hammer/Your Death Fest Host

ATTENTION ALL YOU ALLIANCE-TYPE PEOPLE:
For the purposes of tourney newsletter alliance listings (when I am able to do them),
you may only be listed in ONE alliance.  In other words, you have to choose!  If you
are a part of Englebert's Alliance and Englebert's Alliance is "part" of Ruthrauf's
Alliance, I will list you EITHER as part of Englebert's Alliance OR as part of
Ruthrauf's Alliance, NOT both.  The default would be the top-level alliance,
Ruthrauf's, in this example.  If you'd rather be listed separately, let me know and I
will do so, but that will be the only listing you get. -- The Saint, keeper of ever-
more-complicated lists

The Company of Brothers (TCB) welcomes two new members to our alliance...Liam the
Goth and Buddy Lee.  We have no doubt that they will prove to be assets to our
alliance and the general dueling community. -- Baphomet, co-founder, T.C.B.
