                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of DULLENS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  THE LIBRARIAN caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested GRAY BEAR and was awarded 17 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, GOLDENEYE put down 
TOXIC SLUDGE, causing it to lose 2 points of recognition in the process.  As is 
fitting, the most sought after warrior on the challenge boards this week was none 
other than Duelmaster SHOCK TOP itself.  Although ADELITA made a valiant effort, it 
did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious SHOCK TOP.  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!  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  
In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in DULLENS as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  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
