                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of CLIFFHOME!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team DRAGONS CLAW was 
unseated this week as KNOCKOFF DRAGONS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 3-2-1 record for the round.  SALAMANDER caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested ERAGON and was awarded 20 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, BLUE RACER put down DA1, 
causing him to lose 12 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has 
BURDEN TOFU 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?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In CLIFFHOME "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat 
in CLIFFHOME these days is TMM KNOCKOFFS.  At least, most blades in town are looking 
to avoid them.  Apparently the stalwarts of KNOCKOFF DRAGONS are catching the bulk of 
jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty 
fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  DA1 take warning!  You have 
more than a few enemies in CLIFFHOME.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  I have seen warriors die in youth.  I have seen 
men cut down in their prime.  This week DRAGONS CLAW must mourn the loss of 9-4-1 
ERAGON to KNOCKOFF DRAGONS.  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the 
arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in CLIFFHOME.  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
