                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ZUKAL!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team QUEEN was unseated this 
week as SPROUT OF IT moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with a 4-0-0 
record for the round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  
Witness how this week DARK WARDS went 1-3-0 to move up 4 in the rankings.  Did only 
my eyes note the 4-0-0 record which SPROUT OF IT managed to post this round?  I don't 
doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  SISTER BEAR caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested RIGHTEOUS and was awarded 20 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, SISTER BEAR put down 
RIGHTEOUS, causing him to lose 16 points of recognition in the process.  Due to his 
absence and inability to defend the throne, LUNATIC LARRY has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  The city has turned out in honor of MAYOR MEANSWELL, for with his arena 
victory he may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  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 ZUKAL "art" is a word that has long 
since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in 
ZUKAL these days is STORM'S SHOCK.  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 STORM'S SHOCK.  Indeed it was FROM THE 80'S.  
Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  CRAZED WILDEBEEST 
take warning!  You have more than a few enemies in ZUKAL.  A match that raised a few 
eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that MAYOR MEANSWELL posted a challenge 
against the more highly recognized CRAZED WILDEBEEST.  The results, you ask?  Well, 
the firebrand MAYOR MEANSWELL won victory over CRAZED WILDEBEEST.  Remember warriors, 
this is the discipline of steel.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Some guilds are strict but few are as heartless as DARK WARDS.  
Witness, last turn they sent BLACK PRIEST, a 9-1-0 fighter, to the Dark Arena!  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 ZUKAL as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  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
