                                      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 ARCANE ROYALTY was 
unseated this week as CARDOW HUNTERS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 2-3-0 record for the round.  SHOCK TOP caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as it skillfully bested ADELITA and was awarded 9 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, KOO KOO KUNG FOO put down GRIM 
LAUGHTER, causing her to lose 5 points of recognition in the process.  Not for 
nothing has FLOYDRIFFIC in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this 
week he's proven his combat skill yet again.  Informants "close" to the city champion 
have told me that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out! 
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in DULLENS these days is CARDOW HUNTERS.  At least, most blades in town 
are looking to avoid them.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was 
that spent the better part of last week avoiding CARDOW HUNTERS.  Indeed it was 
ARCANE ROYALTY.  Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the 
knowledge that many fighters are after SHOCK TOP.  Watch your back!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  The warrior's path is harsh.  For mediocrity there 
is but one reward--death.  This past week HAILSTONES, at 11-18-1, departed DULLENS 
forever.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune but sets 
enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in DULLENS.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  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
