                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly MURSKA games.  Former top team HOUSE JHEREG was 
unseated this week as PHILANTHROPISTS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 4-0-0 record for the round.  Did only my eyes note the 4-0-0 record which 
PHILANTHROPISTS managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a record will 
draw challengers!  BRAX caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he 
skillfully bested EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and was awarded 20 points in recognition.  In one 
of the week's more notable duels, MUSTAFA JENKINS put down MIKLOS, causing him to 
lose 6 points of recognition in the process.  Unwilling to wait upon the will of 
others, Duelmaster PACIFIST Bloodfeuded MICA last week in a match to decide the fate 
of the throne.  Not for nothing has PACIFIST in the past laid claim to the 
Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his combat skill yet again.  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.  PHILANTHROPISTS is feared.  This 
much I can say.  Apparently the stalwarts of HOUSE JHEREG 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 MICA.  Watch your back!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  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 MURSKA.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  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 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
