                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of LIN TIRIAN!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  PERSIPHONE caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested GREEN GIANT and was awarded 19 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, AMBITIOUS GUARD put 
down THE MONGOOSE, causing him to lose 6 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.  Would you believe that over 
half of the old women in LIN TIRIAN seem to feel that they could fight better than 
you gladiators?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers 
the miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     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

Steamed Muscles -- Okay, I thought we could get out of personals today because the
roof's leaking.  Seemed like a good reason to me!  But it just made Jorja really
annoyed, and she said we should darned well do the personals and quit griping.  So...
good fight, I guess.  I mean, *I* didn't think so, but she didn't ASK me. -- Urik
Darkheart

Monster Mash, Green Giant, and Rib Iaye -- Let's face it, we can't eat your cooking,
and some of us don't even want to.  But we're glad you're here, even so. -- Silver
Slim, Rock Hardman, and Vera Teague

Well, *I* won. -- The Mongoose
P.S.  I bet you didn't realize how snake-like that Beggar is.
