                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of DAL SHANG!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  KHAH RAKAH caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested LOEKER SMITH and was awarded 13 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, AGERUS put down 
HARITH TEN MORU, causing him to lose 10 points of recognition in the process.  
Although BOBIKA VHETT made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign 
of victorious FLITCHAK.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has 
gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In DAL SHANG "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!  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 DAL SHANG as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  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

Flitchak -- I don't like leaving the title in your hands, you don't really deserve
it, and your manager won't even notice.  But it'll take a turn or two for someone
else to get up here, and I suppose you might as well have it.  I guess it's you or
the standbys. -- Sorrelishe
P.S.  And I bet your manager won't even notice that one of your teammates was killed
by a standby.

Iceclaw -- Melt. -- Loeker Smith

Karma -- Ah, the handicapper really has a down on you!  Better luck on your next
match.  Oh, sh...oot!  I didn't mean to kill you, and Jorja's going to have a FIT
over this.  Well, um, better luck on your next incarnation? -- Chaego Sarildan

Celkovy Unik -- What a mouthful!  You know, I've heard of some other gladiators with
names kinda like yours, up in Osksi.  Any relation? -- Garno ten Koro

A win from a standby is still a win. -- Harith ten Moru, taking the positive approach

9 February 10
All -- I know you all thought the old Wiz that is Fiz went off to die somewhere.
Well, I didn't.  Now I'm back to befuddle and frustrate you with my senseless
ramblings.  I look forward to reconnecting with all my old friends and enemies alike.
-- Fizban the Famous
