                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of DULLENS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team CARDOW HUNTERS was 
unseated this week as HARRY POTTER AND THE moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top 
spot with a 3-2-0 record for the round.  RELIGIOUS CULT caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested STYX and was awarded 17 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, BLACKBUCK put down DEATH, 
causing it to lose 16 points of recognition in the process.  The city has turned out 
in honor of SCOURGE, for with his arena victory he may now lay claim to the highest 
position in the city!  Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he 
never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city DULLENS.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  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.--

Cassie Elizabeth -- Ah, this time you were ready.  Not an experience I enjoyed, but
that's life in the arena.  I'm just glad it wasn't death in the arena this time. --
Stormbird, still wobbling forward

A Drunken Guardsman.  A fool, and a dangerous fool, because anyone could get past a
drunk. -- Soft Rock, feeling hard

Scourge -- If you must, but I'm still not going to confess to something I didn't do.
-- Blackbuck

Death -- The old "universal appeal," but I'm glad not to accept it.  Skills are
better. -- Little Fox

Magical Shortcu -- Not a good idea.  One should never make magic too easy. --
