                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of JHELUM!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  WOLF JERKY caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested CHAS THE DUCE and was awarded 21 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, BETTERMAN put down 
CUSSTER, causing him to lose 11 points of recognition in the process.  Although 
SOUTHERN TIER made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of 
victorious COTTONBALL.  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!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In JHELUM "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  JHELUM, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the 
names of thy guilds is WRONGFUL JUSTICE, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the 
weekly duels.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to 
find any of DEVIATION last week.  Busy avoiding WRONGFUL JUSTICE?  Mighty fighters 
cannot but expect competition from those below.  ROSIE RIVETTER take warning!  You 
have more than a few enemies in JHELUM.  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the 
games this week, it seems that STONE PONY posted a challenge against the more highly 
recognized ROSIE RIVETTER.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand STONE PONY was 
bested by ROSIE RIVETTER.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     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!  
     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

No depth, no bottom, whatever.  Three-two for us, with wins over standbys (even the
Cusser can do that) and losses to managed gladiators.  Hey, we can do mediocre better
