                                      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 ABOMINATION moved up from 5th ranking to take the top spot with a 3-2-0 
record for the round.  There were bitter words at JAY-Z's guildhouse after a 1-3-0 
showing this week which dropped the stable into 10th.  Dark Arena anyone?  
Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness how this week 
SERPENTS' HOLD went 3-2-1 to move up 7 in the rankings.  SLITHERING IDIOT caught the 
eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as it skillfully bested DARK MOON DOWN and 
was awarded 15 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, 
SLITHERING IDIOT put down DARK MOON DOWN, causing him to lose 12 points of 
recognition in the process.  Most watched of the fights this week, the spotlight was 
on STRAP ON as she bore arms against the challenge of reigning Duelmaster JAGABORG.  
Although STRAP ON made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of 
victorious JAGABORG.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has 
gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city KOLACT.  KOLACT, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names of thy 
guilds is ABOMINATION, 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 VIKINGS 
last week.  Busy avoiding ABOMINATION?  Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition 
from those below.  CIRIC take warning!  You have more than a few enemies in KOLACT.  
I can not but mention with disdain the name of BISHOP who this week posted a 
challenge to a warrior a full 9 points below in the rankings.  I thought BISHOP 
showed great skill and promise when he defeated MUZLYMB XTRMIST.  All right, so I 
slept through it!  Big deal!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  I must report the passing of CERISA BRIGHT, veteran of many duels.  
5-13-0 final record Hers was not illustrious--but death plays no favorites.  Cruelly, 
VINNIE of THE CLUB has slain the lesser ranked CERISA BRIGHT.  Word already flies 
around town that THE MOONDOGS plans a bloodfeud!  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?  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:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise 
are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes
