                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly DAL SHANG games.  SASHA caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as it skillfully bested SILVER EYES and was awarded 11 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, ONE-EYED YOFAN put down 
MARAN TEN PALAN, causing him to lose 6 points of recognition in the process.  This 
time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail KOLACTAN KABOB, Duelmaster 
of DAL SHANG!  Would you believe that over half of the old women in DAL SHANG seem to 
feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In DAL SHANG "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers 
the miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in DAL SHANG.  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 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

Well, it looks like Toes will be falling off the Dead List now, along with three
other snacks.  We did enjoy eating Toes in effigy, but this is the apparent end.
Probably just as well.  Too much of that causes bloating.  Better to go with the
regular Snacks. -- the Sand Dancers

Finally, Ssskah will graduate!  We congratulate him/her/it and will even refrain from
making an insulting effigy. -- the Sand Dancers

Ssskah -- I dunno, I think an insulting effigy would be a good idea. -- Garno ten
Koro
P.S.  Provided Jorja doesn't notice.

A standby goes down.  What a thrill. -- Kordal t'Rohn

Kolactan Kabob -- Ouch.  Still, it was worth it, losing to you more than once, for
the advice you were able to offer on our "Eat Toes in Effigy" menu. -- Harith ten
Moru

I don't like Mim Yellowhair, okay?  It's personal between us. -- Linnis tyl Sorn
