                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of SNOWBOUND!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  INNUIT caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested SLUSHY ICE and was awarded 6 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, INNUIT put down SLUSHY ICE, 
causing him to lose 5 points of recognition in the process.  Although M. CHARDINEE 
made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious EXTRA 
LONG SHIFT.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their 
position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city SNOWBOUND.  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in SNOWBOUND 
these days is BOOK OF THOMAS.  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 BASH BROS SPORTS last week.  Busy avoiding BOOK OF THOMAS?   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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!  
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till next we 
meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
