                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of DAYLA KIV!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  GORAN DJIAN caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested DARSAL THE FALSE and was 
awarded 10 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, MADAME 
U-TANA put down KINVER TEN PALAN, causing her to lose 4 points of recognition in the 
process.  Due to its absence and inability to defend the throne, SPIDERPIG has lost 
the title of Duelmaster.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All 
hail 867-5309, Duelmaster of DAYLA KIV!  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!  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when 
this week's challenge seeking began.  BUBBA'S DINER is feared.  This much I can say.  
If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of 
LEGIONS OF HELL last week.  Busy avoiding BUBBA'S DINER?   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears 
arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  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
