                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ARKERS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  LUCKY caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as it skillfully bested KOTTER NAHL and was awarded 20 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, SHIELD WALL put down 
ORVILLE ROUSE, causing him to lose 8 points of recognition in the process.  Although 
KUNG-FU MASTER made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of 
victorious IMA SLAYER.  Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he 
never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In ARKERS "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!   
     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!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in ARKERS.  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
