                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of JHELUM!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Did only my eyes note the 3-1-0 record 
which PEARL JAM managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a record will 
draw challengers!  EVENFLOW caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as 
he skillfully bested SHADOW GOLEM and was awarded 19 points in recognition.  In one 
of the week's more notable duels, EVENFLOW put down SHADOW GOLEM, causing it to lose 
17 points of recognition in the process.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the 
usurper.  All hail ANIMAL, Duelmaster of JHELUM!  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 JHELUM.  JHELUM, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names of thy 
guilds is THE BAD BUNNIES, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly duels.  
Apparently the stalwarts of PURSUIT OF PAIN are catching the bulk of jests down at 
the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and 
assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in JHELUM 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 next we meet remember - the pen is 
mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
