                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ZUKAL!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Did only my eyes note the 4-1-0 record 
which BLUE MOON managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a record will 
draw challengers!  BOMBARZOL caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as 
he skillfully bested DANGEROUS CRIMINAL and was awarded 15 points in recognition.  In 
one of the week's more notable duels, MORAVIA MAUVE put down EELY JOE, causing him to 
lose 8 points of recognition in the process.  Although M. CHARDINEE made a valiant 
effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious KEEL HAULER.  Would you 
believe that over half of the old women in ZUKAL seem to feel that they could fight 
better than you gladiators?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city ZUKAL.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  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 ZUKAL.  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

To those we fought -- It's cold, we didn't sleep well last night (possibly due to all
the losses?), we ate too much (comfort food), and while we know how you look forward
to our personals, today we aren't going to carry it out to full length.  Good fights,
okay? -- We of the Blue Moon who fought you
P.S.  We hope that those of you who went to the tourney had fun and maybe even won
some fights.  Tell us all about it when you get back.
