                                      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 3-2-0 record for the round.  THE LIBRARIAN caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested MIST ON GRASS and was awarded 9 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, THE LIBRARIAN put 
down MIST ON GRASS, causing her to lose 4 points of recognition in the process.  This 
time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail GOLDENEYE, Duelmaster of 
DULLENS!  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.  DULLENS, city of gladiators!  
Mighty among the names of thy guilds is CARDOW HUNTERS, a guild shunned and avoided 
by many in the weekly duels.  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.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing 
is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     The girls are as pretty in DULLENS as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far 
off city calling to me.  I must away!  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

Well, the Commission messed up and lost our priceless (or worthless?) personals from
last time.  Oh, well.  We've got some new personals this time, so let's see if we can
get them to go through to the newsletter, eh? -- Jorja

Adelita -- Right, you want the title, you can have it.  The perks aren't worth
fighting for.  In another, busier arena... maybe.  Here, no. -- Goldeneye

And three-one against the standbys.  Okay. -- the rest of the Cardow Hunters
