                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of XOCHITHLAN!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  DUCK OF DOOM caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as it skillfully bested ROCK ROSE and was awarded 15 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, FERNANDO put down 
PAHM LEIER, causing her to lose 6 points of recognition in the process.  Cold and 
lifeless, former Duelmaster MAWRIE RAWSH will fight no more!  DIAMOND DUST has slain 
her!  Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he never fights 
without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In XOCHITHLAN "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat 
in XOCHITHLAN these days is WORLD BLADES 8.  At least, most blades in town are 
looking to avoid them.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard 
pressed to find any of BIG LAKE LUMBER last week.  Busy avoiding WORLD BLADES 8?  
Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that 
many fighters are after FERNANDO.  Watch your back!  I can not but mention with 
disdain the name of EUNUCH who this week posted a challenge to a warrior a full 8 
points below in the rankings.  I thought EUNUCH showed great skill and promise when 
it won victory over COLLYWOBBLES.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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 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

must give permission.  Please remember, you must use all prizes within six months of 
the tourney when they were won.
