                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of DAYLA KIV!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  I could not but notice the fine 
record for HEROES AND VILLIANS (4-1-0) after their first round of combat.  May the 
gods of war favor you in DAYLA KIV!  CRIMSON COMET caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested RORNIS THE DARK and was awarded 14 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, BUGSY SIEGEL put 
down KULVAR TEN KOGAN, causing him to lose 12 points of recognition in the process.  
Most watched of the fights this week, the spotlight was on LORD OF THE SANDS as he 
bore arms against the Dark Arena Challenge of reigning Duelmaster HOGSHEAD.  Although 
LORD OF THE SANDS made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of 
victorious HOGSHEAD.  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.  GREELO DUFFUS 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?  Strange what qualities come forth in the face of certain doom.  
HOGSHEAD has the town astir with the news of his Dark Arena victory!  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!   
     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
