                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of VALAMANTIS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  HENDRED INGLE caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested MORDANT DESERTER and was 
awarded 13 points in recognition.  Due to his absence and inability to defend the 
throne, INFERNO has lost the title of Duelmaster.  The city has turned out in honor 
of IMROM LLEWS, for with his arena victory he may now lay claim to the highest 
position in the city!  Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he 
never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city VALAMANTIS.   
     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!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in VALAMANTIS.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  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.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Inferno -- You burned me that time.  It might be worth going to the Isle for the
healers! -- Gilbern Juss

I've got a Thing about dwarves, okay?  They creep me out. -- Imrom Llews
P.S.  Even when they aren't actually dwarves; I think the fakers are worse.

Now, that's odd.  I'm every bit the elf that Imrom is, even if I'm two inches
shorter.  But the so-called Khalhums Dwarf didn't "creep me out," he annoyed the heck
out of me.  Darned liar! -- Kolbert Moon

Tremor -- Well, you were standing there shaking and quivering, and I couldn't bear to
watch it, so... I laid you down flat.  At least you didn't have to worry about
falling over then. -- Neevan Povar
