                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of SOLVEN!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  In one of the week's more notable duels, 
VAGABOND put down STONE FREE, causing him to lose 5 points of recognition in the 
process.  Due to its absence and inability to defend the throne, U.S.S.R. has lost 
the title of Duelmaster.  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.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  RED SCARE is feared.  This much I 
can say.  Apparently the stalwarts of SHADOW LANCERS are catching the bulk of jests 
down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Loose talk at the 
arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are 
after THE BALROG.  Watch your back!  I can not but mention with disdain the name of 
THE BALROG who this week posted a challenge to a warrior a full 8 points below in the 
rankings.  I thought THE BALROG showed great skill and promise when he won victory 
over PURPLE ARMOR.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Walk proud, warriors of ARE YOU ?!  By striking 
down MENACE you have avenged the honor of your dead.  Your virtue is known to all in 
SOLVEN.  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena there is only 
the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed a 
stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
Till next we meet remember:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise 
are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes
