                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of TROCAR!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  DESERT LARK caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested ELM and was awarded 17 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, DESERT LARK put down ELM, 
causing him to lose 13 points of recognition in the process.  This time victory fell 
to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail ASH, Duelmaster of TROCAR!  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 TROCAR.  TROCAR, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names of thy 
guilds is BOOK OF THOMAS, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly duels.  
If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of 
LEGIONS OF FATE last week.  Busy avoiding BOOK OF THOMAS?  Mighty fighters cannot but 
expect competition from those below.  HAZZAN KAZZAR take warning!  You have more than 
a few enemies in TROCAR.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Perhaps even the strong cannot escape 
the vagaries of this world.  This week arena veteran BIG CHILL was slain, despite a 
14-8-2 record.  BIG CHILL must hold silent, for this week he was humbled in the arena 
by a successful Bloodfeud won by LUTHIEN of LEGIONS OF FATE.  Hail LUTHIEN for thy 
victory!  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune but sets 
enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in TROCAR.  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:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  
The wise are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes
