                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of DULLENS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  SAM ADAMS caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested RAINBIRD and was awarded 17 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, POLYJUICE TWINS put 
down BLACKHORN, causing him to lose 14 points of recognition in the process.  The 
city has turned out in honor of STONEDOG, for with his arena victory he may now lay 
claim to the highest position in the city!  No confirmation, but my sources claim 
that the top team has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons 
perhaps?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and 
assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     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 we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms 
no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Okay!  We aren't Top Team, we don't have the Duelmaster, we can relax a little.  High
time.  Sure, Biting Fly is Popular and Stonedog's a hot Favorite, but those are small
details. -- Rainbird the Relieved

Thumbscrews -- Hmm, that looks good to me.  I could've used more than one skill,
but... a win, I'll take it.  Any day now, I could graduate, which is also good. --
Stonedog

The Ghost of Eldrad.  Hmm.  Someone should DO something about this.  What is Eldrad's
problem that he can't rest quietly in his grave? -- Rainbird
P.S.  The Ghost of Eldrad "nearly died"?  Good trick.

Polyjuice Twins, either or both -- Looks like you need insect repellant instead of
armor, eh? -- Biting Fly

Pimped Out Broom?  That's a NAME?  Gods, it's awful.  Your manager must hate you. --
Blackhorn

Balance of Earth -- Seemed unbalanced to me.  Balance would have been for ME to win.
-- Anvil
