                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of JHELUM!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team DOGS OF WAR was unseated 
this week as DEVIATION moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with a 3-0-0 
record for the round.  STONE caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as 
he skillfully bested CAPTURED ORC and was awarded 17 points in recognition.  In one 
of the week's more notable duels, TWISTED SISTER put down ROSIE RIVETTER, causing her 
to lose 11 points of recognition in the process.  Although SUN TREE made a valiant 
effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious QUEEN OF COOL.  Heed 
this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole city 
shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city JHELUM.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  DOGS OF WAR is feared.  This much I can say.  Apparently 
the stalwarts of DEVIATION 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 ROSIE RIVETTER.  
Watch your back!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Cruelly, FLOPSY of THE BAD BUNNIES has slain the 
lesser ranked BINAURAL.  Word already flies around town that PEARL JAM plans a 
bloodfeud!  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 JHELUM.  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 
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
