                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of COLLUSION COVE!  Know me for who I am, Zontani 
Sharp Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Warriors--remember that glory 
waits always around the corner!  Witness how this week OK, WE'RE HERE went 1-1-0 to 
move up 4 in the rankings.  EQUIPOLLENT caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as she skillfully bested VIKI and was awarded 21 points in recognition.  
In one of the week's more notable duels, EQUIPOLLENT put down VIKI, causing him to 
lose 26 points of recognition in the process.  This time victory fell to the grasp of 
the usurper.  All hail BLACK WIDOW XLIII, Duelmaster of COLLUSION COVE!  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 COLLUSION COVE "art" is a word that 
has long since passed from the language!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  JRK must hold silent, for this week he was humbled 
in the arena by a successful Bloodfeud won by LITTLE BIG DOG of RED DOG GANG.  Hail 
LITTLE BIG DOG for thy victory!  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?  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  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 Sharp Eyes

These are late, through no fault of the sender, we just couldn't get to 'em sooner.

Andoria -- An eye for an eye?  Excellent. -- Enigma

Shmegma -- Ye gods!  You again? -- Samantha Hain

Green Disease -- Guess I'm the cure for what ails you. -- Cloudgazer

Ghoti -- Goatee?  A full beard will cover your shame better. -- Liam Silvermane

Flummax -- Okay, lesson learned.  Guess an old dog can teach new tricks. -- Imoto
Chan

We return to our regularly scheduled personals.

Imperfect Snotling -- Tough luck being sent to the DA and all.  I guess we can't all
be perfect. -- Perfect Snotling

Death Knight -- You've got to work on that "play" business.  You're too serious.
Humans have that problem a lot, but if you'd just pay attention to us dogs, we could
help with that. -- Donold Dog

Green Disease -- I'll say!  What IS it with humans that you keep shoving green stuff
at us?  Yeah, sure, technically we're omnivores, but any dog that can manage to be a
pretty pure carnivore is going to go for it, you know.  Well, except for a little
grass now and then just to floss our innards. -- Little Big Dog

The Ambitious Guard was no fun!  I tried to tell him that I understood about
guarding, too, I mean, I'm a dog.  But he just wouldn't listen. -- Flummax

A Visiting Orc?  Not on my watch! -- Lassie

The Shiftyeyed Volunteer was so obviously a Bad Guy that I didn't even wait for him
to do something.  Proactive defense, that's the deal.  Bite first and ask questions
later. -- BB Bully Boy
