                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of TROCAR!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team THARG'S GREXNIXES was 
unseated this week as BOOK OF THOMAS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 5-0-0 record for the round.  HOOLIO HO0LABAR caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested LUTHIEN and was awarded 22 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, HOOLIO HO0LABAR put down 
LUTHIEN, causing him to lose 14 points of recognition in the process.  The city has 
turned out in honor of RUSSIAN LULLABY, for with his arena victory he may now lay 
claim to the highest position in the city!  Informants "close" to the city champion 
have told me that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out! 
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city TROCAR.  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in TROCAR these 
days is TREES.  At least, most blades in town are looking to avoid them.  Apparently 
the stalwarts of LEGIONS OF FATE 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 
RUSSIAN LULLABY.  Watch your back!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  This week marked the last days of WINTROW who at 8-8-0 was 
dispatched to the Dark Arena by the command of LEGIONS OF FATE's demanding 
management.  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 next we meet remember:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise 
are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

intended, but still. -- Korill Sai
