                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of KYR'TERR!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  PETER THE GREAT caught the eye of 
many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested M. CHARDINEE and was 
awarded 14 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, DORINE 
EAGEL put down WITCH, causing him to lose 3 points of recognition in the process.  
This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail TRYPTOPHAN, Duelmaster 
of KYR'TERR!  Would you believe that over half of the old women in KYR'TERR seem to 
feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the 
miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     The girls are as pretty in KYR'TERR as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  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

Witch -- We certainly made a pair there at the end.  To the hot tubs! -- Dorine Eagel

Napoleon -- Gods, you're everywhere!  Multiple personalities I can understand, I
guess, but you seem to be one personality in multiple bodies.  Horrid thought. --
Faizun Gote

Peter the Great -- You didn't have to make those comments about roasted mutton while
you were burying my body in the sand. -- Ghost of Kully Lamm

I remember that Beggar very clearly, and he's much too Persistent.  I had to teach
him a lesson, which, alas, he will probably NOT remember. -- Donnie Elfand

The Embezzling Scribe was fine for practice, but I need real people to target with my
charms.  People who will throw me flowers and the keys to gold-filled deposit boxes.
-- Lotta Mous, cute to an amazing degree

A salute to all who participated in the tourney, and congratulations to Sif, Tourney
Victor. -- Jorja and the Zoo
