                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of DAYLA KIV!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  SANDMAN caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested LURA TYL ZURIS and was awarded 18 
points in recognition.  Not for nothing has SLEEPWALKER in the past laid claim to the 
Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his combat skill yet again.  
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!  Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition 
from those below.  JUJUBLE take warning!  You have more than a few enemies in DAYLA 
KIV.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  I must report the passing of LURA TYL ZURIS, 
veteran of many duels.  6-8-0 final record Hers was not illustrious--but death plays 
no favorites.  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 DAYLA KIV 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 - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a 
maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Traveling Tinker.  (sigh)  He can't travel on fast enough for me.  The man's a fool 
and does NOT teach well. -- Korba Klee
P.S.  But then, what can you expect from a dwarf?

Somebody, I mention no names in case of mishap, should sneak up behind Dangerous Bon 
Lokar in a dark alley and cut his throat. -- Ghost of Telgan ten Vorh

Spirit Hound -- It's amazing how easily you can be distracted by a dog biscuit. -- 
Lura tyl Zuris

Sandman -- You're right, a nap would be good. -- Jujuble

Sand Crapper -- Since that was the local mystic's carefully raked sand garden, I 
think I was not too harsh with you. -- Krissara

All -- I support Vendetta Cartel's observation of The Dark Knights!  If war is
declared on V.C. by The Dark Knights, then war is also declared on The Dark Knights
of the Desolate Empire by The Avengers of Light!  We have been quietly awaiting such
a chance to expose ourselves (all interested parties contact me c/o The Barbarians:
DM 31, Attn: Timothias)!  Come, Vendetta Cartel, let us show these broke-down
"Knights" what true warriors are! -- Gemini Goldphoenix, Overlord of The Avengers of
Light

26 August 2006
The Avengers of Light.  Another VC lackey?  What's the matter VC, are you scared?
Bringing in reinforcements.  It matters not, bring your avengers and they shall be
crushed!  I am Dark Knight Blackstorm and I represent the Desolate Empire and can
easily be found in 8, 28, 31, 47, 54, and 106.  I reply with steel and your women
shall cry when they start the body count!!!!!!!!!  Remember to sign your posts to
whoever from the VC wrote that earlier Ad. -- Dark Knight Blackstorm
