                                      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 DEVIATION was unseated 
this week as DOGS OF WAR moved up from 5th ranking to take the top spot with a 3-2-0 
record for the round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  
Witness how this week DOGS OF WAR went 3-2-0 to move up 4 in the rankings.  GARDEN 
caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested THE 
PENNY JAR and was awarded 8 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable 
duels, VENOMOUS VIXEN put down SUN TREE, causing him to lose 8 points of recognition 
in the process.  Due to his absence and inability to defend the throne, ULTIMATE 
WRATH has lost the title of Duelmaster.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the 
usurper.  All hail MIKE MCCREADY, Duelmaster of JHELUM!  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 JHELUM.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  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!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  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
