                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of TOBIR!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  IRON'S HOT caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested GOG and was awarded 14 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, SILKWOOD put down BED WETTER 
NINJA, causing him to lose 8 points of recognition in the process.  Due to his 
absence and inability to defend the throne, DEFEND YOUR LIFE has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  The city has turned out in honor of OCTUPUS, 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!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in TOBIR these days is THE DEATH SQUAD.  At least, most blades in town 
are looking to avoid them.  Apparently the stalwarts of STREEP LEGAL are catching the 
bulk of jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing 
is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in TOBIR.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  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
