                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of NIANIA!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Did only my eyes note the 4-1-1 record 
which COLORS managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a record will draw 
challengers!  HOLY COW caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as she 
skillfully bested DANGEROUS CRIMINAL and was awarded 17 points in recognition.  In 
one of the week's more notable duels, NOSE-FACE KILLER put down ELINTERRI, causing 
her to lose 4 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has THE LIZARD 
KING in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his 
combat skill yet again.  Would you believe that over half of the old women in NIANIA 
seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In NIANIA "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat 
in NIANIA these days is MISNOMERS.  At least, most blades in town are looking to 
avoid them.  Apparently the stalwarts of THE FUNNY FARM are catching the bulk of 
jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  At the 
gambling halls I have started to bet money on FORBIDDEN FRUIT.  She has got the 
courage it takes.  Witness hers challenge this turn against KINTHIRA!  Do not the 
gods reward courage?  FORBIDDEN FRUIT it was that claimed victory in the bout, while 
also rising 23 points in recognition.   
     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!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off 
city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier 
than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
