                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly DAYLA KIV games.  Did only my eyes note the 4-1-1 
record which SAND DANCERS managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a 
record will draw challengers!  JUJUBLE caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested SHAMELESS BEGGAR and was awarded 15 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, KORBA KLEE put down SPALDING, 
causing him to lose 9 points of recognition in the process.  Due to his absence and 
inability to defend the throne, LOQUE has lost the title of Duelmaster.  The city has 
turned out in honor of CHESSARA, for with hers arena victory she may now lay claim to 
the highest position in the city!  Informants "close" to the city champion have told 
me that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In DAYLA KIV "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!   
     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:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by 
the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Loque -- Well, at least it won't be ME at fault for the lack of column.  Not that I
would or will complain when you don't do one.  *I* wouldn't do one, either, except
that my manager INSISTS on such observances, also on things like this personal.  It
isn't like I have anything to SAY. -- Garmon Chang
P.S.  I don't like hospitals.  This is news?

Chandar Lo -- That should NOT, however, be construed as an invitation to share MY
bathtub. -- Chessara
P.S.  Besides, the monsters would get you.

Spalding -- That record is indecent.  You did know that, didn't you? -- Korba Klee
P.S.  Good luck at the tourney, I guess.
P.P.S.  Hey, somebody's got to say it, and nobody else is talking!

Mary Kay -- (recoiling in horror)  PINK armor?  Ick.  If I have to fight you again
(shudder), I'm going to bring a mirror as a shield, and the reflection of all that
pinkness will stun you. -- Terrilis

Sam Goody -- Come on, you can tell ME. -- Jujuble

Ilana -- Yes, but if you'd give me a few clues, I could make a great story out of it!
-- Lalvo the Scribe

Chessara -- You may try to disguise things with your name, but I know a slant-eyed,
flat-faced trouble-maker when I see one!  I suppose you'll try to LURE me into your
bath and then murder me there, eh?  If you DID, if I was that stupid, still my
brethren of the Chardinee Society would GET you for it.  So just bury that unkind
thought. -- Chandar Lo

30 December 2005
Just a reminder to all you online type people.  It is much appreciated if you send
your personals in PLAIN TEXT, rather than HTML or formatted text.  HAL, in his
infinite wisdom, doesn't DO formatting, which means having to unsnarl your personal
ads from bunches of extraneous...stuff.  So, if your e-mailer has a plain text
option, let it be your friend. -- Ed.
P.S.  Sometimes it's the formatted text which makes ads go astray.  Not often, but
sometimes.
