                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of JURINE!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  DONNA caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested BARLO CHELLS and was awarded 29 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, VONNER WESS put down 
DAVID TENNANT, causing him to lose 9 points of recognition in the process.  This time 
victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail WALLIS YENT, Duelmaster of 
JURINE!  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!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena 
there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in JURINE as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  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

Hugh Grant -- Inevitable, so I'm glad we got it over with quickly. -- Vonner Wess

Peter Davison -- Jorja says you should "try it on a motor cycle."  I have no idea
what she means, and that's probably just as well. -- Wallis Yent

Donna -- The handicapper hates you, doesn't he?  What did you do, refuse his
advances?  As who wouldn't, of course, he's a bit of a pig. -- Barlo Chells

The Captured not-really-an-Orc.  It makes a change.  But we should get a real orc, I
bet that would improve attendance.  People like to see real orcs get it in the neck.
-- Dellea Eramin
P.S.  Or anywhere else, of course.

No effort is too great to teach these idiot Ambitious Guards that they should keep
their minds on their REAL job:  protecting us from the orcs.  And the Shews, I guess.
And the dwarves. -- Zakalus Ardon
P.S.  Not to mention the elves.  Horrid creatures, elves.

Our congratulations to Hugh Grant. -- Jorja and the Middle Way
