     Steamed Muscles

                                      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.  RIB IAYE caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested VERA TEAGUE and was awarded 15 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, RIB IAYE put down 
VERA TEAGUE, causing her to lose 12 points of recognition in the process.  Not for 
nothing has STEAMED MUSCLES in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and 
this week he's proven his combat skill yet again.  Heed this!  A seer has warned that 
if exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 
or 7!   
     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 TIGER JONSALMIN, at 18-14-0, departed LIN TIRIAN 
forever.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune but sets 
enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     The girls are as pretty in LIN TIRIAN 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 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

So many good recruits in this arena that we are back to a full team, already.  Must
be the bad economy... -- One Armed Bandit, mgr of Shewish Buffet

One Armed Bandit -- A returning player would be most welcome! -- Jorja

Steamed Muscles -- You're no fun at ALL.  You left me just... limp.  That is NOT the
real me.  Besides, you weren't supposed to WIN.  That should have been ME. -- Tiger
Jonsalmin
P.S.  And you're too tall.
P.P.S.  And you didn't TEACH me anything!

Oh, a Kung-Fu Master.  A silly, pointy-eared ELF.  I laugh.  Ha ha. -- Urik Darkheart

Monster Mash -- That's all wrong.  *I* am not a monster, so you should not have
MASHED me.  Remember that next time. -- Silver Slim

Green Giant -- Green stuff is Bad.  People shouldn't eat green stuff, that's for
rabbits and, you know, SHEEP.  People should eat MEAT. -- Rock Hardman

A good beginning, I feel.  Embezzlers, at least those so clumsy as to get caught, are
deserving of no better than an exciting beating! -- Vera Teague
