                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly LIN TIRIAN games.  SPARE-ONE caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested JAYNE THE RIPPER and was awarded 
24 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, TYLER DURDEN put 
down STRIKE ONE, causing her to lose 2 points of recognition in the process.  The 
city has turned out in honor of IRLON, for with his arena victory he may now lay 
claim to the highest position in the city!  No confirmation, but my sources claim 
that the top team has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons 
perhaps?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city LIN TIRIAN.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  The warrior's path is harsh.  For mediocrity there is but one 
reward--death.  This past week JAYNE THE RIPPER, at 9-13-0, departed LIN TIRIAN 
forever.  Death has again visited the sands of our arena.  SPARE-ONE has claimed the 
life of JAYNE THE RIPPER.  Do any doubt that SAND DANCERS will seek a bloody revenge? 
Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena there is only the 
brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     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 - the pen is mightier 
than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Apple-Tree -- Well...you have a pretty bloom, even if you are unwomanly in the arena.
-- Irlon

Baby Split -- I'm so glad that if someone had to beat me on my last fight, it was
you.  And that you're graduating, too.  That makes it perfect, except will somebody
please kill Irlon for me?  It's an old feud, you see, but him being my teammate, I
couldn't go after him myself. -- Blonde Billie

Strike One -- You did?  I was so bored, I didn't notice. -- Jayne the Rude Ripper

Cork Tree -- Oh, gods, they did it to you, too!  At six feet and over, we can NOT be
dwarves, I don't CARE what those idiots at the Commission say! -- Jigger Kree

ATTENTION ALL YOU ALLIANCE-TYPE PEOPLE:
For the purposes of tourney newsletter alliance listings (when I am able to do them),
you may only be listed in ONE alliance.  In other words, you have to choose!  If you
are a part of Englebert's Alliance and Englebert's Alliance is "part" of Ruthrauf's
Alliance, I will list you EITHER as part of Englebert's Alliance OR as part of
Ruthrauf's Alliance, NOT both.  The default would be the top-level alliance,
Ruthrauf's, in this example.  If you'd rather be listed separately, let me know and I
will do so, but that will be the only listing you get. -- The Saint, keeper of ever-
more-complicated lists

The Company of Brothers (TCB) welcomes two new members to our alliance...Liam the
Goth and Buddy Lee.  We have no doubt that they will prove to be assets to our
alliance and the general dueling community. -- Baphomet, co-founder, T.C.B.
