                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of DAL SHANG!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Warriors--remember that glory waits 
always around the corner!  Witness how this week MEDAL OF HONOR C11 went 4-1-0 to 
move up 3 in the rankings.  NOCALLLISTEXEMPTION caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested KALDAN TEN KARAN and was awarded 21 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, EMBRON THE GREAT put 
down MALACHITE, causing him to lose 7 points of recognition in the process.  The city 
has turned out in honor of CAUSEY, for with his arena victory he may now lay claim to 
the highest position in the city!  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 
die in duels this week, the whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In DAL SHANG "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat 
in DAL SHANG these days is THE CAUSEY WAY.  At least, most blades in town are looking 
to avoid them.  Apparently the stalwarts of BASH BROS EVANGELIST are catching the 
bulk of jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  
Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  KALDAN TEN KARAN 
take warning!  You have more than a few enemies in DAL SHANG.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Must the anguished spirit of FAQIR toss forever in the grave 
unrevenged?  Against the code, GORBAN TEN SKORA has escaped his deed unpunished by 
SCRABBLE!  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune but 
sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  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 - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Sand Dancers -- Condolences on the loss of such a seasoned fighter.  Unfortunately
this is my last turn before I go into training for the coming tournament, so this
will be your only chance for vengeance. -- Causey

The standbys certainly got a workout this time, but it wasn't from us.  Not ONE
standby fought us.  They don't love us any more. -- Lorand for the Sand Dancers

Driving a Rolls -- Maybe you should consider yourself lucky not to have fought
Causey? -- Ghost of Norvan ten Kogan

NoCallListExemption -- I had other fish to fry this time.  But we're bound to meet
again.  And again.  And.... -- Kaldan ten Karan

Xyloid -- An unexpected and valued surprise.  I am glad to take the title on a win.
-- Lorand ten Sorn

Causey -- "Easily killed."  That is the unkindest cut of all. -- Ghost of Norvan ten
Kogan

Driving a Rolls -- You should get a chauffeur.  Someone who understands how to
maneuver in narrow streets and around sharp corners. -- Kaldan ten Karan

Fire Opal -- I'm scorched! -- Gorban ten Skora

Citrine -- Oh... I thought you were a fruit, you know, a cousin of the lemon and the
orange.  That's why I was squeezing you.  Not something, you know, RUDE. -- Embron
the Great

Norvan -- That is why you want to make sure you have enough skills to graduate when
you get enough PPs.  Our condolences! -- Evangelists

Kaldan -- If we fought 50 times, I think you'd win 50.  Woe is me.  Driving a Rolls
