                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of DWES EG!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team ARCANE TREASURES was 
unseated this week as GWAR moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot with a 
3-0-0 record for the round.  I have begun to suspect trickery on the part of 
BLOODHAMMER CLAN.  How else weeks like this one's 3-1-0?  How else the sudden move to 
3rd team?  The proverbial rising comet can only hope to compare with DIABLO ALSO's 
team record!  A 1-0-0 week and now a firm grasp on a 11th place ranking.  I have 
begun to suspect trickery on the part of MORE NEW TEAMS 3.  How else weeks like this 
one's 1-0-0?  How else the sudden move to 12th team?  The proverbial rising comet can 
only hope to compare with HARVEST DAY's team record!  A 1-0-0 week and now a firm 
grasp on a 24th place ranking.  I have begun to suspect trickery on the part of DARK 
TOADS STL35.  How else weeks like this one's 1-0-0?  How else the sudden move to 26th 
team?  The proverbial rising comet can only hope to compare with DRAGON JUNKIES Z3's 
team record!  A 1-0-0 week and now a firm grasp on a 27th place ranking.  I have 
begun to suspect trickery on the part of GOLDEN KNIGHTS 3.  How else weeks like this 
one's 1-0-0?  How else the sudden move to 28th team?  011808V bore the brunt of major 
assault on their standings this week as they dropped to 30th position as the result 
of going 0-1-0!  My tutors were fond of telling me that the higher you rise the 
harder you fall.  This week SUPE FORCES 7603 went 0-1-0 and fell 25 notches into 
34th!  The proverbial rising comet can only hope to compare with DBZ's team record!  
A 0-1-0 week and now a firm grasp on a 42nd place ranking.  I have begun to suspect 
trickery on the part of DRAGON JUNKIES.  How else weeks like this one's 0-1-0?  How 
else the sudden move to 43rd team?  COLORFUL INDEED bore the brunt of major assault 
on their standings this week as they dropped to 54th position as the result of going 
0-1-0!  My praise to GWAR for their 3-0-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a 
skillfully fought round deserving of notice!  SKIRT caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested PIE-EYED JEWELS and was awarded 22 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, SKIRT put down 
PIE-EYED JEWELS, causing her to lose 16 points of recognition in the process.  Most 
watched of the fights this week, the spotlight was on WURM KIN as he bore arms 
against the Dark Arena Challenge of reigning Duelmaster FISH.  The crowds were amazed 
this turn, as WURM KIN killed the Duelmaster, FISH, leaving ALLERGY in mourning.  
With bloody hand WASHINGTON has ascended to the throne of champions.  Is he that one 
which is spoken of in the ancient texts?  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!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In DWES EG "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when 
this week's challenge seeking began.  FEAR FACTORY II is feared.  This much I can 
say.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better 
part of last week avoiding FEAR FACTORY II.  Indeed it was BLOODHAMMER CLAN.  Mighty 
fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  HORROR OF YIG take warning! 
You have more than a few enemies in DWES EG.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  The warrior's path is harsh.  For mediocrity there 
is but one reward--death.  This past week PVEATHRFALL, at 10-16-0, departed DWES EG 
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 DWES EG as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far 
off city calling to me.  I must away!  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.--

So we say to ourselves, we have this nice and cute lunger of 8-6-9-21-21-10-9 
(norm/norm), let's run her in the FTF. So we did and she did about as expected at 2-3, 
picking up the ST train and 4 good skills. So we decided to get that last FE in the 
arena. And our lovely lunger, with very few recog points matches up nicely with an 
NPC.  Sadly, it was Khalhums Dwarf, whom as a scummy waste all plated up was hard for 
a warrior of her design to beat. She leathered up, pounded on him, got tired, and was 
bap, bapped with a morning star to the head and DIED. We cried. Consortium haters 
everywhere cheered. The cretins! -- The Consortium Elders

FISH (82--18667) ALLERGY

                                NAME CHANGE-O-RAMA

     The crowd was surprisingly orderly, but it was still a crowd, and the Commission 
clerk, Algernon, looked at it uneasily.  Whenever this many people came together to 
petition for something, it meant trouble.  For him, anyway.  Records to be altered.  
Altering records was Bad.  It made Extra Work.
     His assistant clerk leaned close and whispered, "If it weren't for gladiators, we 
wouldn't have jobs.  Smile at them and ask what they want."
     Algernon closed his eyes briefly.  Looking at this crowd made him dizzy.  They 
were all wearing black and white stripes.  Like a herd of zebras, except that zebras 
didn't carry swords.  Then he took a deep breath and managed a smile.  "What... ah, 
what can I do for you?"
     "We want new names," the first gladiator said.  There was a number on the front 
of his shirt:  0381.  He thumped the number with his thumb.  "This here isn't a 
name--"
     "We want REAL names!"  That voice came from farther back in the crowd.
     "Yeah!  We've paid our dues," another shouted, "and we've EARNED real names!"
     One from the very back yelled, "I want to be called Tom."
     All the others turned to look at him.
     Algernon couldn't see him, but apparently those looks were accusing.  Well, he 
could understand that, "Tom" was such a... common name.
     "My mom called me Tom," the voice in the back protested.  "It's a good name."
     "It isn't the name you put on the petition," 0381 said.  "We talked about this.  
We got our manager's agreement.  You get the name on the petition."
     "But--!"
     Algernon didn't really want to keep staring at all these stripes while they 
argued.  He picked up the petition.  "These names are the ones you want?"
     0381 turned back.  "Yes."
     "It's a lot of trouble, and when other people see that YOU are getting name 
changes, THEY are going to want them--"  Seeing the gladiators beginning to frown... 
and finger their weapons, he went on quickly, "So I figure we might as well make it a 
complete deal.  A Name-Change-O-Rama.  Everyone who wants a name change can petition 
for it.  Get it all over with at once."  He glanced at the petition, shuddered 
slightly, and passed it to his clerk.  "We'll announce it, proclaim it, even, and you 
will get the names on this petition.  And others will get the names THEY think they 
should have had, too."  He paused.  "And I think I'll get a new name, I'm tired of 
being an Algernon...."
