                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of FRATSFA!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team DRAGONS GUARD II was 
unseated this week as FREEDOM FARCE moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 3-0-0 record for the round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around 
the corner!  Witness how this week THE CHOSEN ONES went 2-2-0 to move up 3 in the 
rankings.  My praise to FREEDOM FARCE for their 3-0-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it 
was a skillfully fought round deserving of notice!  CORPORATE MERC caught the eye of 
many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested THE HONEST MERCHANT and 
was awarded 17 points in recognition.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the 
usurper.  All hail SETI, Duelmaster of FRATSFA!  Heed this!  A seer has warned that 
if exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 
or 7!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city FRATSFA.  FRATSFA, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names of thy 
guilds is IRON CATHEDRAL, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly duels.  
Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better part 
of last week avoiding IRON CATHEDRAL.  Indeed it was OTTO'S PARTS.  Loose talk at the 
arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are 
after URSILA RILVAR.  Watch your back!  I cannot but express pride for the 
fearlessness of MASSIVE MIGRAINE who cast caution to the winds and challenged ABU 
JR., a fighter 30 points higher.  Do not the gods reward courage?  MASSIVE MIGRAINE 
it was that claimed victory in the bout, while also rising 16 points in recognition.  
I can not but mention with disdain the name of GRAFFITI who this week posted a 
challenge to a warrior a full 11 points below in the rankings.  I thought GRAFFITI 
showed great skill and promise when he defeated URSILA RILVAR.  All right, so I slept 
through it!  Big deal!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  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 FRATSFA.  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 next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a 
maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Six dead, again.  Definitely the city is perished and someone doesn't want it
revived.  Maybe the tourney of the dead should be held here?

Well, I hope THIS isn't a trend:  oh-fer.  Bummer.  Graffiti wrote all OVER my armor,
and rude stuff it was, too.  Ellis got a massive migraine and had to go lie down.
