                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of JURINE!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always 
around the corner!  Witness how this week CEPHEUS went 1-0-0 to move up 3 in the 
rankings.  YO ADDLE caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he 
skillfully bested DOG BONZ and was awarded 12 points in recognition.  In one of the 
week's more notable duels, YO ADDLE put down DOG BONZ, causing him to lose 8 points 
of recognition in the process.  Due to his absence and inability to defend the 
throne, ROVERWURST has lost the title of Duelmaster.  This time victory fell to the 
grasp of the usurper.  All hail WOK THE DOG, Duelmaster of JURINE!  No confirmation, 
but my sources claim that the top team has gained their position using magical aids.  
Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  071406W is feared.  This much I 
can say.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find 
any of CANINE CUISINE last week.  Busy avoiding 071406W?  Mighty fighters cannot but 
expect competition from those below.  HANDY ILSONDER take warning!  You have more 
than a few enemies in JURINE.  I can not but mention with disdain the name of 
YORKSHIRE PUDDING who this week posted a challenge to a warrior a full 10 points 
below in the rankings.  I thought YORKSHIRE PUDDING showed great skill and promise 
when he won victory over DODO FERRIS.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  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 JURINE.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I 
keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  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

Four dead.  Ominous.

One-four, and Yo even managed to lose to the Userous Merchant.  I can't imagine what
he wants the money for, and I don't think I want to imagine it, either.  Not in THIS
