                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of LIN TIRIAN!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team THE WILLBURYS 78 was 
unseated this week as SAND DANCERS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 2-3-0 record for the round.  NAKED LUNCH caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested PERSISTANT BEGGAR and was awarded 13 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, DANGEROUS CRIMINAL 
put down TIGER JONSALMIN, causing him to lose 8 points of recognition in the process. 
Due to his absence and inability to defend the throne, UNBELIEVABLE has lost the 
title of Duelmaster.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail 
CALEAM CHOWDER, Duelmaster of LIN TIRIAN!  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 LIN TIRIAN.  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in LIN 
TIRIAN these days is THE WILLBURYS 78.  At least, most blades in town are looking to 
avoid them.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the 
better part of last week avoiding THE WILLBURYS 78.  Indeed it was SHEWISH BUFFET.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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!  
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in LIN TIRIAN.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Sadly warriors, now longer 
can I keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  
Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a 
different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Unreliable -- And well named.  I got the jump, I hit you many times, some of them
being splendidly superior blows, I broke your weapon... and still you won!  You
humans, and an elf is merely a human with pointy ears, are totally lacking in an
understanding of what is and is not proper conduct.  The proper conduct for YOU would
have been to LOSE. -- Kurtal Duck

Untouchable -- I *DID* touch you, three times in minute three.  That should count for
something. -- Haroun Shaddar
P.S.  As, in fact, it did.  That was a respectable point gain for me, considering
that I lost.  And YOU had a point drop, so there.

Unstopable -- I'd work on learning how to stop you, but what's the point?  You're
tourney-timing, right? -- Tiger Jonsalmin

At least the Fratsfa Slave IS a Fratsfan.  And really fun to carve up. -- Sally
Sharpe

The Osksi Noble was a washout.  Easy to beat, and not many points BECAUSE he was so
easy. -- Urik Darkheart
