                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of BONSUR!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team BEACH BABES was unseated 
this week as TOOL SHED moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with a 2-2-0 
record for the round.  PIRES caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as 
he skillfully bested GANNUCK and was awarded 21 points in recognition.  In one of the 
week's more notable duels, BUZZSAW put down PEARL OF THE SEA, causing her to lose 10 
points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has GUMBERCULES in the past 
laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his combat skill yet 
again.  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 BONSUR.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  TOOL SHED is feared.  This much I can say.  If you didn't 
look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of SENTINELS last 
week.  Busy avoiding TOOL SHED?   
     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!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in BONSUR.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  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 - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a 
maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
