                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of KOLACT!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team VIKINGS was unseated this 
week as JAY-Z moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot with a 2-1-0 record for 
the round.  JIGGA caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he 
skillfully bested CIRIC and was awarded 23 points in recognition.  In one of the 
week's more notable duels, JAGABORG put down HUMAN CENTIPEDE, causing him to lose 18 
points of recognition in the process.  Although SKYHAWK made a valiant effort, it did 
not suffice to topple the reign of victorious ADDAI.  No confirmation, but my sources 
claim that the top team has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed 
weapons perhaps?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  VIKINGS 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 THE CLUB last week.  Busy avoiding VIKINGS?  Loose talk at the arena has 
reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after 
BONNIE.  Watch your back!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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 KOLACT.  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 we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, 
and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Human Centipede -- I think that avoiding you would be a great plan.  Unfortunately,
that's more activity than we can get of Jorja most years. -- Deimoon Farr

Our congratulations to Addai.  Hold those serpents! -- Jorja and the Moondogs

Skyhawk -- Ah, as a viking, you would probably have better luck as a seahawk, don't
you think? -- Iayelle Orbin

Clyde -- Ow!  What's with the "vicious" business? -- Monzar Orbisar

Shen -- Drat.  That was fairly embarrassing. -- Deimoon Farr

Frost/Nixon -- Luck is all it was, too. -- Eutherine Planeda
P.S.  It's always a near-pleasure to encounter a gladiator whose manager pays even
less attention than ours does.

Garth Maul -- That was actually... refreshing.  Hard work, of course, but refreshing.
-- Howyl Monson
