                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of DWES EG!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  I have begun to suspect trickery on 
the part of MARK'S STUFF II.  How else weeks like this one's 1-0-0?  How else the 
sudden move to 7th team?  The proverbial rising comet can only hope to compare with 
FINGERS CROSSED's team record!  A 1-0-0 week and now a firm grasp on a 8th place 
ranking.  I have begun to suspect trickery on the part of LAZY 12.  How else weeks 
like this one's 1-0-0?  How else the sudden move to 9th team?  The proverbial rising 
comet can only hope to compare with HISPANIC RELATIVES' team record!  A 2-0-1 week 
and now a firm grasp on a 12th place ranking.  I have begun to suspect trickery on 
the part of SOME GUYS.  How else weeks like this one's 1-0-0?  How else the sudden 
move to 19th team?  My tutors were fond of telling me that the higher you rise the 
harder you fall.  This week ROMAN DIVINITY went 0-1-0 and fell 13 notches into 20th!  
The proverbial rising comet can only hope to compare with DON'T ASK WHAT IT IS' team 
record!  A 1-0-0 week and now a firm grasp on a 21st place ranking.  I have begun to 
suspect trickery on the part of FEAR FACTORY 8.  How else weeks like this one's 
0-1-0?  How else the sudden move to 37th team?  COMPOSERS bore the brunt of major 
assault on their standings this week as they dropped to 38th position as the result 
of going 0-1-0!  The proverbial rising comet can only hope to compare with LEGAL 
TERMS' team record!  A 0-1-0 week and now a firm grasp on a 45th place ranking.  
BUENA ESPOSA caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully 
bested FUNGAL CRAWLER and was awarded 19 points in recognition.  In one of the week's 
more notable duels, LOUSY TIMING put down ELLINGTON, causing him to lose 2 points of 
recognition in the process.  Although ARCHAIC TRIAD made a valiant effort, it did not 
suffice to topple the reign of victorious LONDON CALLING.  No confirmation, but my 
sources claim that the top team has gained their position using magical aids.  
Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In DWES EG "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!   
     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!  
     The girls are as pretty in DWES EG as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  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
