                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly KYR'TERR games.  Warriors--remember that glory waits 
always around the corner!  Witness how this week HEART BREAKERS went 1-0-0 to move up 
6 in the rankings.  Did only my eyes note the 3-0-0 record which WS ARMS '05 managed 
to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  FRANK 
THOMAS caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as it skillfully bested 
CONVICTED ASSASSIN and was awarded 16 points in recognition.  In one of the week's 
more notable duels, PANAMA OATS put down PERRY SATURN, causing him to lose 9 points 
of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has ALBUQUERQUE in the past laid 
claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week it's proven its combat skill yet 
again.  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!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city KYR'TERR.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  DOGS OF WAR is feared.  This much I can say.  Methinks more 
than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better part of last week 
avoiding DOGS OF WAR.  Indeed it was BOMBS AWAY.  Loose talk at the arena has reached 
my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after FAIZUN GOTE.  
Watch your back!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  I have seen warriors die in youth.  I have seen women cut down in 
their prime.  This week THE ZOO must mourn the loss of 6-3-0 LOTTA MOUS to BOMBS 
AWAY.  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena there is only 
the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  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 - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a 
different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Rick Monday -- I don't doubt that you break hearts with both hands, but being human
rather than dwarven, and of the same gender, that is one thing, at least, I don't
have to worry about. -- Faizun Gote

Barrie -- Odd, but I seem to be associating you with a boy who refuses to grow up? --
Lotta Mous

Perry Saturn -- No doubt about it, you fought rings around me. -- Panama Oats

Halifax -- That was unnecessary.  I would have surrendered. -- Ghost of Donnie Elfand
