                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of RIZTAB!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Did only my eyes note the 3-1-0 record 
which BLUE NOTE managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a record will 
draw challengers!  BANJO MAN caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as 
it skillfully bested CHARLENE and was awarded 20 points in recognition.  In one of 
the week's more notable duels, EYE BREAKER put down JOY OF LOSING, causing him to 
lose 12 points of recognition in the process.  Although SKELETON made a valiant 
effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious MUD MUD FROG.  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 RIZTAB.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  BLUE NOTE 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 ENGLISH FOOTBALL 
last week.  Busy avoiding BLUE NOTE?  Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition 
from those below.  COLTRANE take warning!  You have more than a few enemies in 
RIZTAB.  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that 
MARTYR posted a challenge against the more highly recognized VAMPYR.  The results, 
you ask?  Well, the firebrand MARTYR beat VAMPYR.  Remember warriors, this is the 
discipline of steel.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  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 RIZTAB.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  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.--
