                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of JURINE!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team FEAR FACTORY was unseated 
this week as FAVORITE GUYS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with a 
2-3-0 record for the round.  JADRA caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested KJARRAN'S UNIBROW and was awarded 19 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, JADRA put down KJARRAN'S 
UNIBROW, causing him to lose 8 points of recognition in the process.  Although KETA 
made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious PITSPAWN 
FOULDOG.  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 JURINE "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and 
it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after ADEMA.  Watch your back!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  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!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in JURINE.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of 
a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is 
mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Ah!  A match that went as it should...at last.  Sure, the Kung-Fu Master parried my
blows, some of them--and I parried HIS, and he was struck in the arm by the parries.
I love that!  He just THREW himself onto my sword, is what it comes down to. -- Keta
the currently victorious

Huh, the Userous Merchant spent so much time trading odds with the bookies, he forgot
to pay attention to the FIGHT.  And I creamed him.  Not only creamed him, but with
MUSHROOMS. -- Chillili Ches

Adema -- You are an amazingly skilled young woman, and I thank you for what you
taught me.  It's unfortunate that you weren't paying attention to what *I* was
demonstrating.  You might have learned more. -- Randy

Paws -- Did you HAVE to shred my upholstry like that?  I'm going to have a hard time
getting THAT fixed "good as new." -- Dreen Seljin

Kjarran's Unibrow -- That was an impressive scowl.  I've never seen it done so well.
-- Laelkorissa

Ed. -- Exactly! -- Randy
