                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of DAYLA KIV!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  LOVE caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as it skillfully bested POLE CAT and was awarded 21 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, LOVE put down POLE CAT, 
causing him to lose 16 points of recognition in the process.  The city has turned out 
in honor of GREEN DISEASE, for with his arena victory he may now lay claim to the 
highest position in the city!  Would you believe that over half of the old women in 
DAYLA KIV 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.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in DAYLA KIV these days is DARKLINGS.  At least, most blades in town are 
looking to avoid them.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was 
that spent the better part of last week avoiding DARKLINGS.  Indeed it was LORDS OF 
VIRTUE.  Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  POLE CAT 
take warning!  You have more than a few enemies in DAYLA KIV.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  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!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I 
keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till 
we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no 
one; a lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Pole Cat -- It looks like you're the best bet to take down that sleepwalking Sandman.
Too bad Sand Crapper isn't in range!  Snatch that title AWAY from him.  He won't
notice, and neither will his manager. -- Laris tyl Zora

Ferocious Feline -- Ooooh, I'm scared! -- Dolby Klee
P.S.  Maybe next time I shouldn't come into the arena with a fish in my pocket?

Violin Strings -- Clever name! -- Vorgan ten Talh

Sand Crapper -- Yes, and I didn't know WHERE to put my feet. -- Kirssarina

We'd congratulate Sandman on his graduation, but he probably won't notice the
difference even when he's suddenly got LOTS of opponents on the Isle. -- the Sand
Dancers

All -- I've been...out of circulation for the last couple of months, and my lists
are not up to date.  If you've announced a manager name, a new alliance, or changed
a manager name or alliance since the middle of February, let me know in the ads, via
diplo, or in an e-mail (Sue (at) solberg-mathews (dot) com).  For that matter, if
you just want to make sure I've got things right, you can always do the same. -- The
Saint, keeper of lists
