                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ARVAT!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team GASTROPUB was unseated 
this week as DEVIL ADVOCATES moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot with a 
4-1-1 record for the round.  There were bitter words at THE SANCTUM's guildhouse 
after a 0-0-0 showing this week which dropped the stable into 14th.  Dark Arena 
anyone?  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness how 
this week TRILLIUM 12 went 3-2-0 to move up 5 in the rankings.  My praise to B.I.G. 
for their 3-0-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round 
deserving of notice!  BEA HEMOTH caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as she skillfully bested WEYERBACHER and was awarded 28 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, SEMPER FIDELIS put down MOOR, 
causing him to lose 19 points of recognition in the process.  As is fitting, the most 
sought after warrior on the challenge boards this week was none other than Duelmaster 
THE LACERATION himself.  Who here was not present for the title fight this week as 
STRANGE FORM boldly TV challenged THE LACERATION in order to strive for the 
Duelmasters honors?  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail 
STRANGE FORM, Duelmaster of ARVAT!  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the 
top team has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     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.  FRIEND OR FOE? is feared.  This 
much I can say.  Apparently the stalwarts of THE DELIRIUM RULES are catching the bulk 
of jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  A match 
that raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that P.T. BELT posted a 
challenge against the more highly recognized SAIL ON.  The results, you ask?  Well, 
the firebrand P.T. BELT was overcame by SAIL ON.  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?  Was I the only one shocked to see the well respected fighter BLACK 
HOLE (5-0-1) appear on the sands of the Dark Arena?  He is now dead.  I must report 
the passing of WEYERBACHER, veteran of many duels.  13-9-1 final record His was not 
illustrious--but death plays no favorites.  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!  
     The girls are as pretty in ARVAT 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
