                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of KOLACT!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Fortune did not smile upon THE MENTORS 
this time out who this turn suffered a fall into 8th position in the wake of a 1-4-0 
round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness how 
this week FEARSOME FIVESOME went 2-3-0 to move up 4 in the rankings.  COUPLES caught 
the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested DAGG AXELJORG 
and was awarded 17 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, 
COUPLES put down DAGG AXELJORG, causing him to lose 10 points of recognition in the 
process.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail SLITHERING 
IDIOT, Duelmaster of KOLACT!  Would you believe that over half of the old women in 
KOLACT seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In KOLACT "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when 
this week's challenge seeking began.  THE MENTORS 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 
VIKINGS last week.  Busy avoiding THE MENTORS?  Mighty fighters cannot but expect 
competition from those below.  HASTIGHET take warning!  You have more than a few 
enemies in KOLACT.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Look no more for ALLY YEAR MONEY in the arena or 
on the streets of KOLACT.  His fate was sealed in the Dark Arena.  Inevitable for one 
at 12-9-0.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune but 
sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off 
city calling to me.  I must away!  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.--
