                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of SOLVEN!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team ARE YOU ? was unseated 
this week as SHADOW LANCERS moved up from 7th ranking to take the top spot with a 
5-0-0 record for the round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the 
corner!  Witness how this week SHADOW LANCERS went 5-0-0 to move up 6 in the 
rankings.  FIRE caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he 
skillfully bested COTTONMOUTH and was awarded 39 points in recognition.  In one of 
the week's more notable duels, THE BALROG put down PURPLE ARMOR, causing him to lose 
12 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has LEIA in the past laid 
claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week she's proven hers combat skill yet 
again.  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 SOLVEN "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition 
from those below.  PURPLE ARMOR take warning!  You have more than a few enemies in 
SOLVEN.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Strange what qualities come forth in the face of certain doom.  NO 
has the town astir with the news of his Dark Arena victory!  Perhaps even the strong 
cannot escape the vagaries of this world.  This week arena veteran COTTONMOUTH was 
slain, despite a 13-6-1 record.  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 SOLVEN.  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
