                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of DAYLA KIV!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  111 caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested HESTI TYL VAREN and was awarded 16 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, GORBLE put down 
MILKSHAKE, causing him to lose 9 points of recognition in the process.  Although 
POLYNIKES made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious 
-.....  Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he never fights 
without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city DAYLA KIV.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  
In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     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

Milkshake -- No error there.  Milkshakes are one of the best things in the modern
world. -- Mardel ten Varen

That Dirty Ruffian was a lot too forward for my taste.  So I osterized him.  It
seemed the least I could do. -- Hesti tyl Varen

111 -- You probably need to introduce variety into your life. -- Nimini tyl Zo

A standby defeated is still a win for me.  I'll take it. -- Riella tyl Tahl

I think we should ambush Dangers Bon Lokar in an alley and beat him up. -- Gorble
P.S.  I know it isn't civilized, but who said gladiators had to be civilized?
