                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of DAYLA KIV!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  MAZDA caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested LIRINI TYL VARIN and was awarded 25 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, MAZDA put down 
LIRINI TYL VARIN, causing her to lose 22 points of recognition in the process.  Not 
for nothing has RUBY TUESDAY in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and 
this week she's proven hers 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!   
     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!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in DAYLA KIV.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires 
of a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  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

Ruby Tuesday -- Well, I'm glad I got a shot at the title, not that I thought I had a
chance to win.  Phooey.  Those grapes are bound to be sour. -- Moro ten Zora

General Mills -- I wish you'd stop putting so much sugar in the cereal.  It makes the
kids impossible in the mornings. -- Dolby Klee
P.S.  And they're nearly impossible anyway.

And three-oh against standbys.  About what we expected. -- the rest of the Sand
Dancers

31 May 2008
Any and all who live in the 805 area, I would like for you to call me so we can get
together for BBQ's, softball games, and so on.  It has been a while since the last
get together (several years).  It was a blast and I am sure the next one will be
also.  We just have to do it.  All alliances are welcome.  Just because my warriors
leave your warrior beaten and bloody in defeat does not mean we can't have a beer or
five together.  I'll even buy the first round.  So call 805-588-3419 and ask for Dave
a.k.a. Misfit, former member of the Green and Purple Polka Dot Alliance (GAPPDA).
