                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly DULLENS games.  Former top team HOUSE OF CARDS was 
unseated this week as SATAN'S KINGDOMS moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 2-2-0 record for the round.  BLACKBUCK caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested LOCKED ROOM and was awarded 17 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, BLACKBUCK put down LOCKED 
ROOM, causing it to lose 15 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing 
has ROBERTO LEATHAM in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week 
he's proven his combat skill yet again.  Would you believe that over half of the old 
women in DULLENS seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  DULLENS, city of gladiators!  
Mighty among the names of thy guilds is HOUSE OF CARDS, 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 SATAN'S KINGDOMS last week.  Busy avoiding HOUSE OF 
CARDS?  Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge 
that many fighters are after LITTLE FOX.  Watch your back!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  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?  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
