                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of AMEN-TEI!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team TOO OLD was unseated 
this week as BAD GIRLS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with a 2-1-0 
record for the round.  SLITHER caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission 
as it skillfully bested LILLY SCOOTER and was awarded 12 points in recognition.  In 
one of the week's more notable duels, SLITHER put down LILLY SCOOTER, causing her to 
lose 10 points of recognition in the process.  Most watched of the fights this week, 
the spotlight was on LADY SLIPPER as she bore arms against the challenge of reigning 
Duelmaster BONNIE BARROW.  Not for nothing has BONNIE BARROW in the past laid claim 
to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week she's proven hers combat skill yet again.  
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 AMEN-TEI "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat 
in AMEN-TEI these days is TOO OLD.  At least, most blades in town are looking to 
avoid them.  Apparently the stalwarts of BAD GIRLS are catching the bulk of jests 
down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Loose talk at the 
arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are 
after LADY SLIPPER.  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 AMEN-TEI.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  More than a sharp eye must I 
keep, indeed a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari 
await me!  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

to be REALLY happy. -- Bud Bollard
P.S.  Pure philanthropy, in other words.

The Shiftyeyed Volunteer is an ass. -- Lilly Scooter
